Catch the rugby and spend a weekend away in Wales

Industry: Tourism/Vacation

Wales are due to host Italy in the Six Nations on Valentine’s Day so why not extend your trip to the principality and stay at a luxury Pembrokeshire holiday cottage.

Wales, UK (PRUnderground) January 17th, 2014

With the RBS Six Nations set to start soon many rugby lovers may be looking to earn brownie points which can be exchanged for time to spend at the pub watching the international clashes.

And one way to do that is for loving rugby fans to take their partners and significant others on a romantic Valentines getaway.

Here at Quality Cottages we can offer exactly that with the added bonus that a Valentines weekend away at one of our Pembrokeshire holiday cottages can be tied in with Wales’ opening Six Nations game against Italy.

Wales take on the Azzurri at home on Valentine’s Day itself, February 14, and are hot favourites to win the game comfortably.

So what could be a better way to celebrate than to head on west to one of more than 130 luxury holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire.

While a stay at one of our cottages is an ideal valentine’s celebration, there’s no reason not to make the trip later in the year too.

With Wales playing at home against France later in February and hosting Scotland in March, there are another two chances to combine a trip to watch Wales with a stay in a Pembrokeshire holiday cottage.

If Leigh Halfpenny, George North and the rest of the team are able to do what’s expected and beat Italy on February 14, it could leave you with a double celebration.

About Quality Cottages


We are a Welsh family business started 50 years ago, specialising in Quality cottages in Wales. Leonard Rees inherited Cerbid farm at the age of 17, then came out of farming 10 years later by converting the farm buildings into cottages. For nearly 20 years there was a small portfolio of the Cerbid cottages plus a small sample of other nearby cottages.In 1979 the late program ”Wish You Were Here” came to Cerbid to do a feature. The high demand for our cottages after this was the inspiration needed to grow into a larger agency. Soon after, we won Wales’s first Gold award for self-catering tourism.Since the early years we have grown to a pan Wales agency specialising at the Quality property Wales has to offer. We have had the privilege of working with many beautiful properties and their owners.During the 1980\\\\’s we also established a French agency, Quality Villas. You can visit their site by clicking www.qualityvillas.com. Quality Villas now also have property in Italy, Morocco and in ski resorts in the Alps. We have always and will continue to attract a high standard of property with caring owners. Our local team members live and breathe Wales. We have an accumulated knowledge of Wales, its geography and history second to none. There is always someone to hand to help with answers and solutions to questions. In 2011 there are now 30 of us in the team, we have a paternal approach to employment, putting the needs of people first. We feel this has a positive effect on health, happiness, and profit. 17 of the team have been here more than 10 years, Erene has been here for 40 years! Margaret Rees and son Tim Rees have also re-joined the company with pockets full of fresh ideas to take us, hopefully, through the next 50 years.

50 years experience

Over 50 years ago we started letting farmhouses, cottages and our converted old farm buildings at Cerbid, in an area where my family have farmed for nearly 400 years. Cerbid is a tiny private hamlet on the centre of the St. Davids/Solva peninsula which enjoys some of the finest coastline in Britain. Our office is also located here at Cerbid. As letting agents we now represent properties in selected areas of Wales.


Specialise in Quality not Quantity. We accept only 1 or 2 cottages out of every 10 offered. Behave always with Honesty and Integrity. From selection to descriptions of the holiday homes and communication with the customer. (That’s not to say we don’t make mistakes, but we will always act fairly to fix things quickly.)
