Hello mum!

It’s been a very busy Easter at East Jordeston and our guests have enjoyed glorious weather to make it a memorable visit to Pembrokeshire.

Our small flock of Jacob sheep conveniently decided to add to our visitor’s experience by lambing throughout the two weeks of the Easter holidays! We now have a beautiful healthy flock of 9 new lambs – mostly girls this year (after last year’s ‘glut’ of ram lambs!). For those guests who have visited us before and remember helping Sandra bottle feed Annie as a small molly lamb two years ago, here she is all grown up, just after giving birth to her first lamb – a lovely bonny girl! Ahhhhh………

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus – Happy St Davids Day!

Dewi Sant was a Celtic monk who lived in the 6th Century. He lived a hard and frugal life, eating mostly simple food like bread and herbs and drinking only water. During his life he helped spread Christianity to the pagan Celtic tribes and reached the status of archbishop of Wales before his death on 1 March 589AD. He is buried at St David’s Catherdral here in Pembrokeshire – a great place of pilgrimage.

Today in Wales, part of our celebration of St Davids Day is enjoying suppers of simple food-warming Welsh cawl, wholesome rustic bread, barabrith and Welsh cakes.

The wearing of our national emblems, the daffodil and the leek is important too. The leek was used in a 16th century battle when it was suggested the Welsh soldiers wore leeks in their caps to distinguish them from their Saxon opponents. A good idea and they won the battle of Heathfield!

Great value in May and June

May and June are fabulous months to take a holiday, especially in Pembrokeshire! Our coastal path springs to life with carpets of changing colour – flowers like thrift, rock sea-spurry, sea-lavender and the beautiful dainty squill form a mesmerising hue as they cling to the most exposed ledges. It’s also the perfect time to visit the islands like Skomer to see breeding puffin colonies – a real treat!

For the garden lovers amongst you we have secured a special treat up until the end of June 2009 – a 2 for 1 offer to visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales.

Please contact us for available dates.
