Thank you for a lovely holiday! We've had five or six days of heatwave, but still managed to visit many lovely places that we've not seen before. Porthgain, Abereiddy, St Davids, Strumble Head – all stunning scenery and teeming with wildlife.

Never stayed on a farm before, so fun to see the goings on and to watch an assortment of animals wandering by. The house itself had everything we needed – loads of space and lovely bedrooms.

Peter and Euros were really helpful with everything, dropping in some eggs for our breakfast and helping me wash my car! Thanks as well for the milk and Welsh cakes on arrival!

My Granny Ali is writing this as I'm only 2 and can't yet write. I've had a fantastic holiday here with Granny and Grandad and Mummy and Daddy. The best bit was when Euros and Peter took me on a tractor ride. We also said hello to the ducklings and we saw a new calf when she was just 20 minutes old.

The weather was mixed but we managed a couple of days on the beach (Whitesands, Little Haven and Newgale) and Mummy and Daddy took me to Folly Farm which was fantastic.

Well it is now my bedtime but I want to say a big thank you to Euros, Peter and Dilys for looking after me, mummy, Daddy, Grandad and Granny Ali.

Another fabulous visit to the Rees clan! Thank you for everything: - use of your lovely farmhouse, lots of jobs around the farm, work on the tractor (Jess has got the bug!), friendly banter (from Euros) and the usual abuse from Pete!, getting to work with all the fabulous animals on the farm.

We do love visiting you all and catching up with all your news. Thank you for putting up with us yet again and all your patience!! Loads of love.

Another relaxing week. Thanks again Peter, Dilys, Eurof & David. The little extras make such a difference, especially a good supply of firewood and coal, which was very much appreciated, as the weather was very wet windy and cold but we did manage a couple of extra days stay (thanks Peter) and the sun did shine at last! All in all a lovely weeks stay in this lovely well equipped farmhouse. See you next year!

We have had such a wonderful holiday here and have been looked after so well. It is a rare treat to get away from our farm for 2 weeks, finally Tom has been able to relax but still kept an eye on farming activities here!! The children loved collecting the eggs, leading the lamb around and meeting the new ducklings.

We have visited this area a few times and just love it here. Porthgain is a particular favourite – great walks and great beer at The Sloop. We visited the Bug Farm which was really interesting and the children loved holding the bugs – well worth a visit.

We enjoyed many hours on the beach at Newgale annd Whitesands, even though it wasn't very warm.

Thank you so much for making us so welcome and for the loan of the DVD's and toys.

Millie – I enjoyed collecting eggs and driving the tractor. Kitty – I liked walking the sheep. Anna – I liked herding the sheep. Chris – The friendliness of the Reees family. Elaine – A beautiful, relaxing stay in a lovely farmhouse.

Thank you, see you next year. Another fantastic stay at Ty Fferm – thank you. Family Pugh

We've had a fantastic week. Our newest addition (Hamish 8 months old) slightly changed how we usually holiday in St Davids and we basically spent the week on Abereiddy beach which is a great beach if you have young children. The car park is right next to the beach, there are loos, an ice-cream van, rock pools, lots of sand and gentle waves.

When we weren't at the beach we were at the Bug Farm (again, good for young kids as its also got an indoor play barn perfect for rainy days). We had lunch in the cafe which was delicious (for both this and those not eating bugs). And we also very much enjoyed exploring the farm.: collecting eggs, saying hello to the lambs and calves and admiring the machinery. Thank you. so much for taking the time to show us around.

The house was more than comfortable and a perfect home away from home. Thank you again and if you're ever in Scotland, near Edinburgh and want to meet some Highland cows then let us know!

Property Description
Comfortable traditional Welsh Farmhouse
  • This comfortable, roomy, traditional Welsh farmhouse attached to but completely independent of the owner's home, is set on a quiet country lane leading towards the coast, facing traditional farm buildings and surrounded by open fields.
  • Situated at the heart of a working farm near St Davids, Ty Fferm is just 2 miles from Abereiddi Beach and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path – a perfect base for access to the beaches and villages of north Pembrokeshire.
  • Warm, well-equipped and pristine with a large family kitchen and a snug sitting room with wood burning stove. The enclosed front garden faces the traditional farm buildings and at the rear a gravelled patio and lawn give space for alfresco dining and games on the grass.
  • After a day exploring the Pembrokeshire Countryside, Ty Fferm is a homely cottage to call home. It's in a lovely setting for a holiday to be enjoyed for all ages.
  • A warm welcome awaits you at Ty Ferm where you (and your children) can learn about the farm animals and join in with feeding the chickens and young sheep - a place for wonderful holiday memories!


About the Area
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path
  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs both east and west from nearby Abereiddi. The dramatic coastal scenery, flower and wildlife are what make Pembrokeshire one of the world's best holiday destinations (National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire the 2nd best coastal destination in the world).  It is splendid at all times of year, but the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!
St Bride's Bay Water Taxi for Walkers
  • Solva Sailboats operate a water taxi which will take you to your chosen destination from where you can walk back along the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to Solva. Possible destinations include Porth Clais, Porthmynawydd, St Justinians, Nolton Haven and Little Haven (weather dependent). Phone 01437 720972.
    Treath Llyfyn Beach
    • Traeth Llyfyn beach, the nearest to Ty Fferm, is a wide expanse of sand great for family beach days, rock-pooling, picnics and games of rounders (with a long staircase down to the sand).
    Abercastle and Abereiddi and the Blue Lagoon
    • Neighbouring Abereiddi, has pretty colour-washed former quarry workers cottages, black sandy beach and the remarkable Blue Lagoon. Popular with families, the sand which is visible at low tide, also contains a high concentration of fossils and is a draw for fossil hunters.
    • Abercastle is one of the many tiny coves dotted along the coast - popular for swimming, diving, kayaking and fishing
    Porthgain
    • A short drive from Ty Fferm is the harbour at Porthgain, once a busy industrial port, exporting slate, bricks and road stone. The harbour is now used mostly for fishing and recreation, with the village green at the centre the site of interesting social occasions throughout the year - Pembrokeshire Fish Week barbecue or the Porthgain World Cup make for really memorable holiday events.
    • Have supper in Porthgain - the Sloop Inn and the Shed Bistro are both popular eating destinations.
    • Freshly caught fish as well as lobster and crab can be bought in the village (in the season).
    St Davids City and St Davids Peninsula
    • St Davids is Britain's smallest city. It's lovely medieval cathedral and ancient Bishops' Palace form the historic centre but it also boasts a number of modern amenities - banks, post office, supermarket, filling station, chemist, doctor and vet - as well as a good range of interesting shops.
    Boat Trips to Ramsey Island
    • Book a boat trip to Ramsey Island and experience the thrill of a jet boat trip across Ramsey Sound, through the infamous Bitches, and then the contrast of moving in close to the cliffs to see the wildlife at close range. For the less adventurous there are conventional boats which both circuit and land on the island.
    Whitesands Beach
    • Whitesands Beach, just two miles from St Davids, is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy beach has a Blue Flag award and lifeguard cover in the summer make it popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts, with surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach. The beach is a lovely place to walk and between October and the end of April your dog can come too.
    • When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.
    Melin Tregwynt
    • Tregwynt Mill, near Abermawr and Aberbach, offers a new approach to Welsh woollen goods with exclusive wool blankets, throws, cushions, accessories and clothing combining traditional techniques and modern design. Combine your shopping expedition with a visit to the tea room!
    Priskilly Golf
    • Priskilly Forest Golf and Club House - a challenging course set in mature parkland with an excellent 19th hole! Open to non members and only a short drive away.
    Fishguard Town and Pretty Lower Fishguard Harbour
    • Take a day trip to Ireland from Fishguard ferry port, buy fantastic local produce from the weekly farmers market and investigate the individual shops, restaurants and pubs in this 'up and coming' little town (The Lonely Planet Guide 2009).
    • Fishguard was the setting for the 'Last Invasion of Britain' in 1797 which is commemorated in our very own Welsh 'Last Invasion Tapestry' designed by Elizabeth Cramp and sewn by local needlewomen and displayed in the Town Hall.
    • Wander amongst the boats or walk out along the quayside to the sailing club and (low tide) beach beyond of this pretty, unspoiled coastal harbour.
    Picton Castle
    • Days out in Pembrokeshire should include a trip to Picton Castle. With some of the biggest and oldest trees in West Wales, a maze, a walled garden and a fernery and when you have exhausted yourself in the woodland walks, a cafe serving really tasty homemade food. Picton Castle is a real delight.
    Family Fun
    • Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitcheh, Hangar Five trampoline park, West Wales Karting, Scolton Manor and Country Park, Folly Farm, Manor Wildlife Park and the Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Company are just a few of the quality family attractions in Pembrokeshire.
    Adventure Activities
    • Pembrokeshire has plenty to offer the young and young at heart. Try coastal walking, cycling, surfing, coasteering, climbing, sea kayaking and so much more.
    Day Trips
    • The celebrated seaside resort of Tenby with its characterful walled town and five glorious sandy beaches is not to be missed. Perhaps you would enjoy a tour of Pembrokeshire's highest and wildest landscape the Preseli Hills, at 560 metres above sea level they offer wonderful opportunities for walking with breathtaking views, micro breweries, remote homesteads, ancient relics and characterful Tafarn Sinc, the highest pub in Pembrokeshire.
    This spacious farmhouse upholds the Welsh tradition of warm hospitality (see reviews) and provides a wonderful base for holidays in Pembrokeshire at any time of the year.
