BFB's Overview

Family farm holidays don’t come much better than at the tongue twisting Cwmcrwth Cottages in Carmarthenshire. Making friends with adorable Oxford Sandy Black pigs and piglets will have children and grown-ups squealing with delight and there are lots more animals to get to know, including a flock of free range chickens, hairy Highland cattle, shaggy Cotswold sheep, Toffee the pony and, not forgetting, Dora and Gertie the goats.

Cwmcrwth is a small working rare breeds farm, where Farmer Rob and Fiona have converted three stone barns into gold award-winning cottages and offer families a really hands on experience of all the fun of the farm.

Throughout the year there is always something going on for children to see and to get stuck in, from ‘lambing live’ and handling baby chicks in the spring, to collecting eggs for breakfast, feeding the animals, walking the goats and helping with the mucking out.

For families who are really keen, the owners also offer ‘Junior Farmer Days’ during which kids from 5-12 from can spend the whole day being a Farmer and looking after their own animals. Adults and teenagers can also get involved and try their hand at making cheese and curing bacon, or even take a pig keeping workshop, which allows children to join in with sausage making. The home reared and home cured bacon and sausages are also available as breakfast boxes from the farm shop.

Cwmcrwth offers more fun than just farming as children can happily play the days away amongst the huge list of play gear including a fantastic newly built castle on a hill – perfect for playing knights and princesses! On top of that, there’s a Little Tykes playhouse and climbing fort, swings and slides, a trampoline, a sandpit and ride-on tractors and diggers. Or they can simply enjoy nature or simply enjoy nature by paddling in the streams that skirt the ground. There’s so much to do at the cottages that it’s almost impossible to drag junior guests away!

Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, there is plenty to keep kids amused indoors too. The owners provide baking boxes with farm animal biscuit cutters and craft boxes for making animal masks. Plus two cottages have games consoles, and all three have a selection of toys, books and board games, freeview TV, DVD player and DVD’s.

The cottages themselves are set in a gravel courtyard and have been sensitively converted in keeping with their original character, built in traditional Carmarthen stone with slate roofs, thick walls, big barn door windows and exposed beams. They have also been attractively finished and furnished to 4-star standards and well equipped for families, from the modern, fully fitted kitchens to colour co-ordinated bedrooms and gleaming bathrooms

Accommodation overview
Cwmcrwth Farm Cottages comprises The Hayloft (sleeps 4), The Milking Parlour (sleeps 6 + baby) and The Coach House (sleeps 6 + baby). The cottages can also be exclusively booked for larger groups of up to 16 family and friends (+ babies). Two travel cots are available as well as three high chairs, a steriliser, baby bouncer, a potty, stairgates, bed guard, plastic crockery and cutlery.

The Milking Parlour is a spacious, single story barn conversion that comfortably sleeps a family of 6 plus a baby, with one double ensuite bedroom and two twin bedrooms. The cottage is decorated in warm, neutral colours, with toasty underfloor heating, high ceilings and exposed beams. The comfortable lounge includes two sofas, a flatscreen freeview TV/DVD player, Wii console and iPod dock, plus there are views over the duck pond and field beyond through the big picture window. The large contemporary, kitchen/dining room is well equipped for family self catering including a touch sensitive electric hob, fan oven and mircowave, dishwasher, large fridge freezer, washing machine and a table which seats 6 (there is also ample space for additional furniture if cottages are booked together). A stable door opens into a porch which houses the underfloor heating boiler and makes a great drying room for damp clothes and muddy wellies. The double bedroom, with space for a cot, overlooks the duck pond and has an ensuite with a walk-in shower, WC and washbasin. The two twin bedrooms overlook the courtyard and share a bathroom which has a bath with an overhead shower, a washbasin and WC. Quality bed linen and fluffy towels are included. The Milking Parlour has a private decking area over the pond and shares use of the garden, with barbecues and outdoor seating.

Location Information

Cwmcrwth Farm Cottages are located in the rural countryside of Carmarthenshire, just West of the Brecon Beacons National Park and 25 minutes drive from miles of dune backed sandy beaches and rock pooling bays.

The picturesque town of Llandeilo is just three miles away, with its reputation for chic designer boutiques, antique shops and funky gift shops in its twisty little streets but also providing all the food and essentials stores, cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways that families will need during their stay. Children will be dragging parents into Eve’s Toy Shop and people come from miles around for the handmade chocolates at Heavenly, whilst their award-winning ice creams come in some weird and wonderful flavours, as well as all the old favourites. Not forgetting the Toast factory shop!

Superb local food is such a feature of Carmarthenshire that several ‘food trails’ lead visitors to some of the best markets, artisan producers, renowned restaurants and gastro country pubs. The markets in Carmarthen and Llanelli are especially worth a visit and local specialities include Laugharne salt marsh lamb, Tywi trout and sea trout, Carmarthen Bay shellfish, locally harvested laverbread and award winning cheeses.

The Carmarthenshire coast (17 miles) boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, from vast swathes of super-flat beaches like Pendine Sands (historically used for land speed record attempts) to dune-backed Cefn Cidan and the Millennium Coastal Park at Llanelli. Laugharne on the River Taf estuary was immortalised by Dylan Thomas’ under Milkwood description of "..sloe black, slow, black, crow black fishing boat-bobbing sea.." and Llansteffan beach is brooded over by a 12th century Norman castles.

Within easy reach of the farm, there’s an abundance of ancient castles, stately homes and fun family attractions to explore.

Top recommendations include panning for gold at the Dolaucothi Goldmines (10miles) and the brilliant Oakwood, Manor Park and Folly Farm theme parks, and all-weather attraction including the Blue Lagoon swimming complex and the 20,000 ‘Play King’ soft play, bowling, go-karting and cafe in nearby Llanelli.

Just down the road (2miles), Aberglasney House boasts one of the most beautiful gardens in Wales and even children will appreciate the Yew Tunnel and woodland trails, whilst Dinefwr Park (4 miles) has a 12th castle and over 100 fallow deer roaming the grounds. The National Botanic Garden of Wales (10 miles) rivals the Eden project with over 8000 species of plants in different themed gardens and has the world’s largest single spanned glasshouse, designed by Lord Foster.
