Welcome to Shortlands Farm.
We offer family-run holiday accommodation in the tiny hamlet of Druidston in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Shortlands Farm provides a range of accommodation options designed to suit both your budget and your desired level of luxury. From the camping field to the cosy holiday cottage, Shortlands Farm has something to offer everyone.
We (Kate and Luke) moved to Shortlands Farm at the end of 2009. We moved in on the 22nd December and immediately set about learning how to cook a Christmas dinner for 11 people using only an Aga. Neither of us had ever used an Aga before. It was a success and the rest is history. Leo the Lab-Collie cross joined us in 2010, then daughters Belle and Sadie followed after.
The holiday business has grown steadily over the years but still remains small and personal enough for us to get to know our wonderful friendly guests. We now have many repeat bookings so we hope we are doing something right!
Set in 29 acres, Shortlands Farm has stunning sea views and overlooks St Brides Bay on the South-Western tip of Wales.
Located at the end of a track, and within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Shortlands Farm is a peaceful and secluded get away, yet only 15 minutes by car from Haverfordwest and 25 minutes from St Davids– Britain’s smallest city.
No stay at Shortlands Farm is complete without experiencing a breathtaking sunset over St Brides Bay. The farm has uninterrupted views to the West so after a long day at the beach you can sit out, put your feet up and enjoy the beauty of an awesome sunset over the Irish sea.
The farm is home to dairy cows and calves, and there are also rabbits, badgers, foxes and numerous birds (peregrine falcon, chough and yellowhammer all nest on the farm) to be seen on and around Shortlands Farm.
Druidston Haven beach is a 10 minute walk away, follow the bridleway from Shortlands Farm then wind your way down to the beach. At low tide a large sandy expanse stretches out to provide lots of space with rockpools and caves to explore. Druidston is a well-kept secret and remains peaceful and relatively quiet even during the summer months when some busier beaches are full to bursting.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path can be joined at the end of the bridleway for spectacular walks up and down the coast. The local coastal bus, the Puffin Shuttle, stops at Druidston Haven for those who want to explore further afield.
The nearest food shop is two miles away at Broad Haven, while a weekly farmers market (Fridays) and a choice of supermarkets is available at Haverfordwest, six miles to the east.
The Druidstone hotel is a short walk from Shortlands Farm and is usually open to non-residents for food and drinks (depending on capacity).
Nearby there are many beautiful unspoilt beaches and activities to choose from, including surfing, coasteering, horse riding, wildlife spotting, fishing, boat trips, walking, swimming and many more… Cliff-top wild flowers are at their best in Spring, while seal pups are a late summer attraction.
So, whether you visit to walk the coast path, to swim or surf, to fish or for bird watching, or simply to do nothing and relax, Shortlands Farm is a retreat to escape to at any time of year.
Shortlands Farm tries to limit its impact on the environment so encourages recycling and sensible use of resources. Please join us in preserving this beautiful and unspoilt part of the world.
