Local entrepreneurs open businesses at Milford Waterfront this summer

28/10/2021

More new businesses run by local entrepreneurs have opened at Milford Waterfront, including The Cheesy Cow, Dilly’s Chocolates and The Cheeky Sheep, offering new unique shopping experiences to Milford Waterfront visitors.

The Cheesy Cow opened in Milford Waterfront this summer after starting a lockdown hobby preparing graze tables for friends and family. Now a takeaway café with Marina views, The Cheesy Cow offers sweet and savoury graze boxes and tables, rustic baked goods, graze boxes, baked baguettes, breakfast items, sweet treats, ice creams and hot drinks.

Homemade chocolates are on offer at Dilly’s Chocolates with a number of flavours, including Raspberry & Rose, Gin & Lemon, Honey & Almond, Whiskey & Vanilla and Honey & Saffron in the selection boxes, and Dilly’s also offers chocolate bars available in both milk and dark chocolate, with flavours including Salt & Pepper Caramel, Minty & Crunchy, Dark Orange & Mocha and Honeycomb & Golden.

Finally, established in 2020 as an independent online retailer, The Cheeky Sheep owner Shan decided to turn her hobby into a commercial enterprise by opening a shop at Milford Waterfront this autumn. All products sold in the shop are either handmade or drawn by Shan, and you can find a large selection of hand painted glassware, from gin and wine glasses to teapots and vases. As well as glassware, they also sell lots of brightly coloured fluid art jewellery, original pastel artwork, and offer commissions.

Steve Edwards, Commercial Director for the Port of Milford Haven commented: “It is great to see so many locally homegrown businesses taking the next step here at Milford Waterfront and expanding into shops and cafes. We are really proud to have a wide selection of local businesses at Milford Waterfront, and hope visitors can appreciate the true Pembrokeshire spirit here.”

Notes to Editors

Milford Waterfront

Milford Waterfront is a multi-million pound regeneration project being led by the Port of Milford Haven. It aims to revitalise the marina and docks into a vibrant destination, adding to the existing mix of leisure, retail and dining businesses and boosting the economy by providing long term, sustainable jobs.

A number of flagship projects have already been completed at the site including the opening of four custom-built Floatel Cabins, which offer a restful retreat for visitors looking for a unique glamping experience.

The new development will also celebrate the arts, culture and heritage of the area, working in partnership with key stakeholders. The Port already hosts a busy calendar of events at Milford Waterfront such as its popular Summer Fest campaign that included the Fish Festival, Beer Festival and Street Food Festival in 2019. Children’s activities and seasonal events such as fireworks displays and Santa visits also take place throughout the year, more information can be found on the What’s On page.

In April 2022 the new 100 bedroom Ty Hotel operated by the Celtic Collection will open and we hope more visitors will stay and experience all of the new and existing attractions here at Pembrokeshire’s hidden gem
