Things are really looking up. After an apparently never-ending building process, we finally went ‘live’ just before Christmas. Within three weeks we have seven confirmed bookings (see Availability). For anyone contemplating a winter/spring break, the woodstore is full of seasoned oak logs (these are free from October to March), so you can return from a bracing walk along a beach or the Coastal Path to relax with a warming link in front of a blazing fire in one of the living room’s two stoves.
Late winter and early spring are also a great time for the birdwatcher. The proximity of the Gulf Stream and prevailing westerlies mean the area is generally frost free. This is perfect for waders that feed by probing in soft ground. Along the East Coast this means mud flats because inland feeding grounds are so frequently locked beneath ice. In Pembrokeshire, however, they are drawn by the many inland lagoons – many of which have hides.
