Day 17 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to The Hop Shack in Carmarthenshire.

Find out more about their visit: 

The Hop Shack and terrace

First Impression:

The converted and extended rustic caravan offers a good and homely space in a central spot on the site. A good base to enjoy the farm - with playground nearby for kids.

Lovely to meet Eleanor and partner at last. We have worked with the family since 2015.

The Accommodation:

This comfortable space has recently been updated.

There are two bedrooms with the second bedroom coming off the first, and the bathroom is off the second bedroom. This means it's great for one couple or family - or friends if they are OK with passing through each other’s space.

There are woodland walks around this 40 acre site and children will enjoy playing in the playground, which is just a short stroll away. 

Cosy interior of The Hop Shack

Food and Drink:

The kitchen is well equipped so you can cook homemade meals. You can join in with their famous food nights which theoffer on Fridays (woodfired sourdough pizza) and Saturdays (fire food) from April through to October and December - an event not to be missed.

The onsite shop sells produce from their own organic garden as well as other local produce and essential goods. 

Great play area for children

Jess' top tip:

Enjoy your time in the Teifi Valley. Closest beaches are Llangrannov and Tresaith, visit Cilgerran Castle and arrange a canoe trip from the Wildlife Centre.

There is dolphin watching from New Quay harbour. Or close by Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, Teifi Valley Railway or the National Wool Museum for a dose of Welsh traditions.
