Beach Holidays 


If you are looking for a day by the sea we are just under 10 miles from Pendine sands with its 7 miles of beach.  Pendine beach best known for its famous land speed record where Malcolm Campbell reached speeds of 146 mph in September 1924.  The car is on display in the museum next to the beach.   If you prefer other beaches in West Wales we are 13 miles from Saundersfoot and 16 miles from Tenby which is a delightful walled harbour town.  11 beaches in Pembrokeshire are blue flag beaches.


If walking interests you guests are able to enjoy our 20 acre farm including a small woodland walkway.  There is a public footpath running alongside the farm giving individuals a nice walk around the surrounding area plus other walkways including around the remains of the historical Whitland Abbey.  For the more adventurous of walkers Pembrokeshire coastal path stretches for 186 miles.
