The Owner says....

Family life is at the heart of everything here ..

Croft Farm has been our home for nearly 30 years and in that time we have slowly transformed the site into a haven for busy families wanting to get away from it all family life is at the heart of everything we do here. We have 5 children of our own, and part of the reason for leaving London all those years ago was to offer our children the freedom and clean air of this unspoiled corner of the UK. Once you discover this corner of Pembrokeshire in Wales, we re pretty certain you ll want to come back for the wildlife, for the scenery, for the outdoor activities, for the sheer peace of the place.

West Wales is just the most beautiful outdoor adventure playground, whether you like to stand and stare or you re into high adrenaline extreme sports. So why not pack your outdoor gear and head west.

We left behind a career in fashion and life in a top London hotel to pursue our dream here on the Western fringe of the UK. Come and see, you won t be disappointed.

Welsh and English are both spoken throughout this area. Our children are bi lingual so you ll feel at home in either language.

We look forward to sharing this amazing corner of West Wales with you.
