What Our Guests Say...

Relaxing weekend - The accommodation was lovely, clean and tidy. Quiet and relaxing. I went away with my husband for a peaceful weekend break and that is exactly what we got. But on the other hand the place well equipped for children and so we will be back with our children next time. Plenty of things to do locally for children and couples.

I organised this get away for my husbands 40th with our family and friends. What a wonderful weekend we all had! The farm is a kiddies paradise. They just loved the freedom with lots to do. This always makes a parents break away heaven. The cottages are clean and comfy - a home from home. Beaches are nice and close too. We will be back.

If your looking for a peaceful holiday in the deep countryside this is perfect.The wildlife is great with so much to see and the most wonderful walks on your doorstep.Pigsty cottage was excellent for us and the view from the cottage was stunning.

Toby, Carmarthen

My family has stayed here many times including two visits this year. The cottages are very nice and have everything you need. They are user friendly and you don't feel continuous panic if you have young children there! The grounds and setting are completely stunning. My family and I lay in the garden outside our cottage and listened to the sound of the birds wings whirring through the air as they sped around the buildings. We are talking seriously peaceful!
