The impact of the coronavirus is being felt across the UK and around the world, affecting almost every aspect of our daily lives. And if you’ve booked a Pembrokeshire cottage holiday that is due to take place in the coming weeks or months, you may be thinking the best thing to do is cancel.

But wait, there is another option.

If you’ve been looking forward to your idyllic getaway in South West Wales, you can easily postpone your trip, instead of cancelling it completely.

And here’s why…

You’ll have something to look forward to

There’s no denying we’re living in difficult and challenging times.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to look for any positives you can find. Perhaps that’s a news story about a community pulling together to get supplies to vulnerable people, or a humorous tip posted on social media about keeping entertained while self-isolating.

But what better way to feel better than to know you have a holiday to look forward to in a stunning coastal location like St Brides Bay in Pembrokeshire?

And when you do get there, you’ll appreciate the beautiful scenery, invigorating walks, fantastic beaches and fresh air more than ever before.

You’ll be doing your bit for UK tourism

Of course, it’s not just the tourism industry that is being hit hard by the pandemic. The knock-on effects are being felt everywhere, from travel companies to freelance workers.

But outside the doom and gloom, there is hope. People are finding wonderful, and often very simple ways to support each other and businesses that may be struggling.

Here at St Brides Bay Cottages, we’re a family-run holiday letting agency based in the pretty fishing village of Solva in North Pembrokeshire. So, by booking your next break with us, you’ll be giving us a welcome helping hand – while giving yourself a holiday to remember once the situation has settled down.

And if you already have a self-catering cottage break in St Brides Bay coming up, we’d be happy to help you rearrange for a later date. Doing this will help to keep us ticking over – and help you to have something to get excited about.

What’s more, you’ll be supporting lots of other local businesses in Solva, St Davids, Porthgain and Newgale. These small firms rely on visitors enjoying a pint in their pubs, feasting on fresh seafood in their restaurants and buying gifts in their shops.

A cottage holiday for family or friends

Many of us are finding ourselves cut off from our loved ones because of measures such as social distancing, which the Government has advised in a bid to reduce the transmission of the virus.

For many that means birthday celebrations, theatre trips and meet-ups at the pub have been shelved.

But a great way to keep your spirits up is to know you have a group holiday or short break booked for the future. After all, it’s at times like this that we realise just how important our friends and family are, and how precious quality time together is.
