Pull on your wellies, roll up your sleeves and head down to the farm and explore five farm stays in Pembrokeshire.
Pembrokeshire is a county landscaped by its farms. Our mild weather and fertile lands feeds the UK with dairy, potatoes, beef and lamb.
There’s a good chance you will eat lots of food produced in Pembrokeshire while here on holiday and the best way to find out who makes this food is to stay on a farm.
Lochmeyler Farm, St Davids
Farm stays are a great way for families to get up close and personal to some farm animals and one of the best places to do this is Lochmeyler Farm, near St Davids.
Margo and Matthew Evans are seasoned hosts and second generation farmers on this 220 acre dairy farm.
The farm is both child and dog-friendly, offering two children's play areas, a pet corner and an indoor viewing gallery to watch the cows being milked. With horses, goats, pigs, cows, chickens and rabbits there’s lots of opportunity for all the family to getting stuck into some hands on farming. Brilliant!
Caerhys Farm, St Davids
Caerhys is a beautiful organic farm perched on the cliffs above Abereiddi Bay. The farm provides organic vegetables and rare breed pork to the local community, establishing the first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) scheme in Wales.
A community of 30 local families join the scheme year in year out, committing to buying the produce that father and son team Gerald and Caz grow that year. Scheme members get to muck in with farming life at regular weekend events and visitors are very welcome to join in the fun.
Trevayne Farm, Tenby
The Reed family have been farming at Trevayne for the last 80-years and offering camping and caravan holidays for almost as long.
Nestled on the cliffs between Saundersfoot and Tenby, above its own secluded beach of Monkstone, it’s a great spot for some summer camping and a real Pembrokeshire gem.
Richard Reed is currently at the helm of this family farm and is successfully using permaculture practices to put ecology, biodiversity and regenerative agriculture very much at the heart of the business.
The Monkstone flock of sheep dotted around the farm offer another unique perspective on Welsh farming – wool. These sheep provide local designer Anna Felton with a steady supply of wool for her home-grown knitwear enterprise Monkstone Knitwear.
You may be visiting in summer but these woollies are irresistible and I challenge you not to go home with the warmest jumper in Wales!
Mountains and Sheep
Wales is synonymous with sheep and if it’s a sheep farm you are looking for then you need to head to the Preseli Hills.
Erw Lon, Gwaun Valley
Erw Lon is a peaceful beef and sheep farm offering a five star experience at the foot of the Preseli Hills, overlooking the beautiful wooded Gwaun Valley.
You’re guaranteed a warm welcome from your award winning host Lilwen McAllister, and her husband Bernard, along with wholesome cooking using local produce.
The Gwaun Valley and Preseli Hills are a breathtaking area of outstanding natural beauty located in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Wooded valleys, streams and waterfalls give way to moorland, wildlife, star filled skies and wild Welsh ponies.
Lower Hathog Farm, Spittal
There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh produce, straight off the farm, and local food experiences don’t come much better than those on offer at Lower Hathog Farm.
Nesta Thomas is a bit of a legend in these parts and is known, first and foremost, for her great cooking. Nesta and her husband Bill have been farming their 250 acre dairy farm and catering to a long list of celebrity chefs, including Rick Stein and Angela Grey, for many years.
If you stay at Lower Hathog your sure to have a very good breakfast and a memorable evening meal, using the finest local ingredients Nesta can get her hands on.
