Swimming lessons

Natalie and I had a wonderful time with you both last week - thank you so much for teaching us how to enjoy being in the water. After years of being phobic and many years of trying to swim (without much success), now we are going to be committed pool junkies! Natalie has her head firmly down in the water - something she hadn't done at all before and I am happy to glide, play dead and sing under water. It is so exciting and we can't wait to come back to swimming without stress for more! We've told all our friends and they are really envious of our new attitude to swimming.

Between Lessons

Between Lessons

There's Nothing To Do

That's the beauty of leaving the stimuli of home life behind. A quiet head and relaxed atmosphere make for a perfect learning environment.

As lovely as the cottages are, you don't have to sit around all day.  Pretty villages St Dogmaels and Nevern, market town Cardigan,  the Pembrokeshire Coast and the gorgeous River Teifi are all less than 10 minutes' drive away. 

Gentle riverside strolls or strenuous coastal hikes (with plenty of opportunities for a wild swim),  award winning farmers' market and first class eating-out are some of the delights to enhance your stay. We can help you discover the little gems.

You can spend as much time as you like in the pool between lessons. We don't want you to overdo it, and rest between lessons is beneficial, but it's good to spend some time working things out for yourself. 

Outdoors

The three photos on this page were all taken within 3 miles of Croft Farm.

There are sweeping beaches, secret coves and stunning coastal path walks all a short drive away. Cardigan Bay has the largest population of bottle-nosed dolphins in England and Wales, which can be seen from the shore or during a boat trip with A Bay to Remember, in Cardigan.

The Teifi River is a local gem, great for canoeing and swimming. If we're free and the weather's good, we might come with you and give you a ride in our Canadian canoe. At dusk, have a peek at the coracle fishermen.

Oh, and there's the eerily beautiful Preseli Hills, littered with burial mounds and stone circles.

... and in

There's an ever increasing number of eateries serving quality local produce, from a quick bite to fine dining.

There's plenty of local history to discover at the heritage centres at the abbey in St Dogmaels, Cardigan castle and the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve - all very nearby.

In the market town of Cardigan there are many interesting independent retailers and you can browse the galleries and craft markets. There's always something on at Theatre Mwldan - live theatre, music and cinema. St Dogmaels local producers' market was winner of the BBC Food and Farming Awards - Best Market 2016.

We'll let you have our up to date secret list of recommendations for eating, walking and swimming.
