We are spending a week on a late summer holiday at Croft Farm and Celtic Cottages in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We drove over yesterday, a journey which went surprisingly well despite misgivings. Both little ones were impeccably behaved in the car.
We are staying in the Talar Aur cottage which is lovely, beautifully decorated and fully equipped. First thing this morning we were out to feed the animals:
Harry was a bit nervous of the goats to start with, but once he realised he could just shove the bucket in their faces he was fine.
The pigs are a bit more intimidating, best to throw the food over the fence.
The donkeys were also very keen to get to the food.
In the chicken house we collected the fresh eggs.
In the afternoon we drove down to one of the nearest beaches, Poppit Sands. It was a lovely big beach, free parking and very few people there. We busied ourselves making sandcastles, then headed over to look for crabs in the rockpools (we didn't find any!). After a slight detour due to a should-have-trusted-the-sat-nav navigational error we returned to the farm and tried out the swimming pool. Unfortunately Harry wasn't really up for it, but Mia seemed to like her first swim so hopefully we will be giving it another go later in the week!
We've been so lucky with the weather, it is gloriously hot and sunny, long may it last!
