Who are we?

Welcome to the Cardeeth Team.  We are Jim, Sally and our boys who’ve grown up as a family in the spectacular Pembrokeshire Countryside, with a passion for the outdoors and an appreciation for the authentic things in life.

Cardeeth is a mixed farm on the edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, surrounded by fields and woodlands overlooking a beautiful south facing valley beyond which is only 3 miles to the sea.  Over the last 20 years we’ve hosted many tourists and love the opportunity to meet so many lovely people.

Carew Castle, Mill and estuary can be spotted less than a mile across the fields. ‘Caer’ means ‘stronghold’ or ‘fortress’ in Old Welsh “Caer’deeth now peacefully sits in the Pembrokeshire Countryside.

At home we produce beef from non-intensively reared Welsh Black Cattle using traditional farming methods.  Our native livestock live happily outdoors, maturing slowly on clover-rich pasture and a small quantity of home grown hay.  The free range chickens love being given suitable scraps from the kitchen, peck at windfall apples and provide us with rich flavourful eggs. Currently Twyi & Smokey the ponies attract a lot of attention and get ridden occasionally, the roses are grateful for them being here too! Frosty the cat patrols the sheds for any unwanted invaders. We believe in the highest levels of animal welfare and minimising the impact on our environment, this also means that no chemical fertilisers or chemicals are used.

We also like nothing more than heading off to the beach, catching mackerel, sea swimming, coast path adventuring or just a lie down in the sun.  Always make time to do something nice every day.

Where are we from?

We want you to discover Pembrokeshire and have the adventure of a lifetime. Known across the world for its legendary coastal scenery, protected by Britain’s only Coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire is the perfect holiday destination: golden sands backed by towering cliffs teeming with wildlife that are just as beautiful in summer as they are in winter. 

Surrounded on three sides by water and with no part of Pembrokeshire being more than 14 miles from the coast you can see why we have salt water in our veins, there is an outstanding coastline and epic shores.  The best way to see our coastline is from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, all 186 miles from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, you’ll pass seascapes of breath-taking variety, award winning beaches, harbours, inlets and islands.  Along the way, you’ll no doubt pass all those who just love to be in or on the water.  There’s coasteering, surfing, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking not to mention messing about on boats – fishing or sailing. Families have no end of choice; adventure parks, castles, boat trips and family festivals, they are just some of the attractions and events that will create lasting memories that are talked about for years. Have a taste of rural life, shop in farmer shops and markets, enjoy the space and fresh air, try dining out chose from top quality restaurants to street food shacks.  Come and stay with us at Cardeeth and find out for yourselves.

Events & Private Hire

Welcome to Cardeeth Barn and range of spaces on the farm for any event you have in mind from country weddings, creative workshops, intimate dinners, sports training weekends and our Fabulous Feast Nights.

 

This beautiful old lime-plastered barn is located on an organic farm set in a beautiful Devon valley near Exeter. A rustic, unique venue perfect for parties, weddings, gigs, courses, workshops or just a good old-fashioned get together. Bickham Barn is away from the rules and regulations that sometimes stifle creativity and spontaneity, so if you want to do your own thing, drop us a line, we can make it happen!

You are invited to experience the hospitality of a working family farm, feast on our seasonal harvest, and share memorable experiences with family, friends and colleagues.

As well as weddings, corporate events and private dining, we run a number of ticketed events which are open to the public throughout the year.

These include our ever-popular feast nights, where our chefs showcase the seasonal bounty of our meadows, gardens and hedgerows.

Alternatively, join us for a Farm Gate Feast or visit us during our Christmas At Nancarrow season; there are plenty of ways you can experience a taste of our family farm first-hand…

  • Caldey Island lighthouse @jamievans96 | Caldey Island is a short boat ride off the coast of Tenby #pembrokeshire. 
Home to an order of Cistercian monks, the island produces its own perfume and chocolate, has scenic walking routes around the island and of course the stunning Priory beach.

  • Winter walk on Whitesands, St Davids by @sirbenfro | At the southern end of the beach towards Porthselau and views towards @rspb_love_nature Ramsey Island. Ramsey Island is a nature reserve about 1km off the coast from St Davids. It’s dramatic coastal cliffs rise 120m from the sea making the perfect place for breeding seabirds. A Twitchers paradise 🔭 and so worth a trip.
