It’s time to dust off your party hat and re-learn the words to Auld Lang Syne – the year 2013 is almost upon us. We list ten top ways to enjoy the New Year in Narberth.
Celebrate New Year at The Grove
One of Wales’ top luxury boutique hotels is offering the chance to welcome in the New Year with style. The Grove’s three-night New Year Break involves mulled wine, roaring log fires, champagne and canapés, a six-course dinner, live music and a midnight firework display – we’ve heard there are still a few rooms available.
A night in with Frederick’s
Since opening its doors in 2009, artisan chocolatier Emily Wright has been combining the highest quality chocolate with various fillings and drawing in ever larger audiences. If you’re planning a night in front of the television, the least you can do is make sure you’re tucking into the finest chocolates possible.
A fresh start means fresher produce
If you’re cooking up a New Year feast you’re going to want to use the very finest, freshest produce. Head to Narberth and you’ll soon discover that the bustling stalls of Narberth’s Country Market are home to everything from the freshest shellfish to local breads and cheeses.
Bed down in a quirky accommodation
Don’t let a bog-standard B&B ruin your New Year getaway. Narberth is home to a range of quirky accommodations including Under The Thatch’s Tin Bungalow, a restored 1920′s corrugated iron gem that sleeps 4, is bursting with character, and which makes for an ideal romantic hideaway.
Bosherton lily pond walk
Make sure your start to 2013 is a scenic one with this popular local walk. You’ll head past the iconic lily ponds on your way to Broad Haven beach and the famous Pembrokeshire coastline. Before long you’ll be wandering the golden sands of Barafundle Beach, ready to tackle the New Year head on.
Take a break from leftover turkey
Sick and tired of Christmas leftovers? Why not welcome in the New Year with some of the best tapas in Wales. Located on the high street, Narberth’s Ultracomida has become famous for dishes such as ‘chorizo cooked with Welsh cider’ and ‘roasted balsamic beetroot, caws ffetys and watercress salad’.
Alcoholic sorbet, anyone?
The only time you’re likely to come across a shop specialising in both ice cream and local liquors, Fire and Ice is a great place to stock up for a New Year party. Their delicious alcoholic sorbet selections include spiced rum and mandarin, Scrumpy cider and ultimate raspberry prosecco.
Go in search of an antique
If you’re still wondering what to buy with your Christmas money, head to one of Narberth’s many antique stores in search of a bargain. In particular, the Malthouse is Wales’ largest antique centre and, with twenty-two showrooms in total, you’re bound to find something for you.
Wander Narberth’s boutique shops
Even if antiques aren’t your thing, you’ll still find a host of specialist and boutique shops around town. From organic toiletries and kids’ gifts at Golden Sheaf to local produce and the latest fashions courtesy of The Welsh Farmhouse Company, there’s nothing like a little retail therapy to beat the winter blues.
Family fun at Bluestone resort
If you’ve got kids, there’s no fear of running out of New Year activities at Bluestone this year. The resort is planning to host everything from a New Year’s Eve party (with fireworks, of course) to a 1930s Blue Lagoon New Year’s Day pool party as a fun way to recover from the night before.
