A Tempting Early Autumn Holiday Offer, Plus What’s On In West Wales During September
The schools have gone back, and despite glorious weather here in West Wales, the calendar tells us that early Autumn is here – or could we still call it late summer – that’s got a nicer sound to it!
Before we get into a roundup of what’s happening here in our corner of the world, it would be remiss of us not to give you a tempting offer to celebrate the turn of the seasons!
So here it is, in all its mellow-sunshine-leaf-changing-colour glory….

The days might be gradually shortening, but the sun is still shining, and there are lots of things going on in West Wales for our guests to dip into as they choose (in addition to visiting our fabulous local sandy beaches, mooching around Cardigan for unusual craft gifts and tasty artisan foods, and making the most of our onsite luxury leisure complex with the heated swimming pool, and farm of course!)
Here are few highlights to help you plan your stay with us….
Ironman Wales returns to Tenby in the south of the county for its fourth season on Sunday 14th September. With its 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and full marathon to finish off it’s a gruelling feat of endurance for the 1500 athletes entering. We recommend maybe watching from a safe distance with an ice cream, and then perhaps enjoying a stroll around Tenby itself afterwards!
If something a little less active is more your thing the PENfro Book Festival takes place in nearby Rhosygilwen on 12th-14th September. This annual event celebrates the quality and diversity of writing in Wales today, recognising the contribution of local publishers and booksellers, and aims to encourage more people – from the casual reader to the committed bookworm – to enjoy the wealth of books Wales offers.
West Wales is deservedly gaining recognition as a ‘food-lover’s destination’ and following the recent well attended Cardigan River and Food Festival in August, we now have Narberth Food Festival to look forward to on 27th & 28th September – yum yum!! With chef demonstrations, live music, street theatre, talks and tastes, it’s a great day out. One of the headlining chefs will be Stephen Terry who was in charge of one of the evening dinner’s at the NATO summit in Newport recently. Don’t tell Cameron and Obama, but we reckon he’ll probably enjoy the Narberth Food Festival more!!
There are a range of Dylan Thomas events on during 2014 to celebrate the 100 year Festival, including performances of his work and tours of where he wrote – including his writer’s hut at Laugharne, and where he based himself at nearby New Quay, so if this is of interest to you, check out their website at www.dylanthomas100.org
If you have a passion for nature we have a couple of local events taking place to delight you.
On 20th and 21st of September the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales at Cilgerran is holding An Introduction To Beekeeping – Parts One and Two (on consecutive days)
On the evening of 24th September the National Trust is holding a Bat and Moth Evening (with the bat detector!) at Llanerchaeron House near Aberaeron. Even if you don’t want to see the bats and moths this lovely example of a self-sufficient 18th-century Welsh minor gentry estate is worth a visit. The house has its own service courtyard with dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house. Outside are walled kitchen gardens, an ornamental lake and parkland for peaceful walks, and a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.
Boat trips remain popular at this time of year – both for sea fishing and wildlife watching. There are plenty of Dolphins, Porpoises, and new seal pups being spotted daily at the moment. Bay To Remember are very popular with our visitors, and have a great record of knowing just where to go to see our local sealife.
For Pre-Schoolers Folly Farm are running one of their monthly Toddler Takeover days on 25th September. Activities include storytelling, art and craft fun and hands on experiences aimed at encouraging, educating and entertaining pre-school children, and this is included in the regular price – with oodles of fantastic animals to see as well, including the Pride of Pembrokeshire lions who have only been in situ since this summer, having come to Folly Farm from Longleat Safari Park.
So….as you can see there’s plenty going on during September here in West Wales – and this is in addition to all of the regular attractions and things to do which are open every day. There literally is something for every age group. You can see more about what else our area offers on the ACTIVITIES tab on our website.
Your holiday can be as chilled or active as you choose, and because we’re based right on the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion border here at Croft Farm we’re within easy distance of all of these great activities and events.
We hope you’ll take advantage of our One Extra Night Free Offer, and come and enjoy a luxurious break with us here at Croft Farm & Celtic Cottages.
Have a look around our website and you’ll see we cater for tiny tots upwards – perfect for an Autumn break with Pre-School children, and with our range of cottages sleeping between 4 and 12, you can enjoy a holiday with friends and family too!
Book online now to take advantage of this offer, or we’d be happy to answer any queries you have – just call Charmaine in the office on 01239 615179
