With lambing season just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to enjoy a farm holiday. Rent one of our luxury cottages on a working farm and the whole family can enjoy the experience of farm life.
Visit the animals, go walking over the hills and cook with locally-grown produce from farm shops and markets. Here are 3 of our popular farm stays, and feel free to contact us for more ideas

There are great walks and cycle routes to be had right from the door and you can explore the surrounding farmland.
Inviting Cottage near the West Wales Coast
This luxury holiday cottage, set on a working farm in West Wales, is picture perfect and very family-friendly. There’s plenty to see on the farm. Arwel, the farm’s cheerful owner, will be happy to show you the best walks and with lambing season just about to start, he may even need a helping hand or two! The cottage is fully equipped and the patio will allow you to enjoy barbecues and beautiful views of a wooded valley.
There is a private fishing lake, which you can use, as well as an outdoor playground and a games room with snooker table, dartboard and table tennis. The cottage is seven miles from the coastal town of New Quay which has endless activities for families, including kayaking and wind-surfing lessons, boat trips along Cardigan bay to see dolphins, and miles of safe cycling paths and coastal walks.
