Join us for Ladies Day 2017

Our glamorous Ladies Days has become the ‘must attend’ event of the year so we invite you to join us for another wonderful day at our Wolfscastle Country Hotel, Pembrokeshire.

The annual Ladies Day will be held on Sunday 9th July from 2-5pm with pimms on arrival followed by a hot and savoury afternoon tea and live music with the acoustic sounds of our favourite band Honey Fungus.  During the afternoon we will be holding a raffle and a special fashion show including a prize for the best dressed lady on the day.

Ladies Day was a charity event originally set up in 2006 by Nicola Gurson in honour of her mother Judy Kelly who sadly died of cancer. More recently, we have hosted Ladies Day here at the hotel to continue raising money for local charity Paul Sartori, which was set up in memory of Paul who was a friend of Wolfscastle Country Hotel.  This year we will also be raising money for the Amani Children’s Home in Tanzania which holds a special place in the heart of our proprietor Andy Stirling. To date, Ladies Day has raised £60,000 with the help of its wonderfully generous guests.

Tickets are £18.50 per person with £10 being donated to our charities – Paul Satori & the Amani Children’s Home in Tanzania.

To book call us on 01437 741225.
