About liz croft
Hi, I'm Liz Croft, this is me outside the front door of the Cottage at New Year 2016......We'd love you to come & stay at our fabulous 'home from home' Holiday Cottage in beautiful North Pembrokeshire, West Wales.. We run Plas Drygarn Cottage as a small family concern along side our other full time jobs.. We care about our visitors & their enjoyment & aim to tailor each week to it's occupants needs. We found this was something we couldn't do if used an Agency as they don't let you have contact with clients before their stay. The best part of the last 9 years has been to see families & couples return to us each year once they have discovered us.
liz croft purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why liz croft chose Crymych
We bought this derelict small holding in 2000 & have done up the main Farmhouse for ourselves at a higher level than the Cottage. So far we have completed one barn conversion which is Plas Drygarn Cottage..We have been renting it out since Oct 2009 with 4* grading. We have made a good start on renovating a 2nd lower level property but will be another few years before completion. We chose this spot knowing that although rural & peaceful we were still just 5 minutes drive away from the small town of Crymych with both Primary & Secondary Schools for our children as well as a Leisure Centre, Swimming Pool, Rugby Club & great variety of small shops.
What makes this Cottage unique
Crymych is a central location for daily visits & enjoying the 3 Counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion & Carmarthenshire. We are not on the roadside, we have a decent farm track to the small holding meaning it is safe for your children & pets as well as being very peaceful!

Just what we were looking for!
The property is in a stunning location with views that most of us only dream of. If you have binoculars and a decent camera, take them because you'll need them!
Liz prepares the property beautifully and offered just the right amount of help/advice during her check-in process. She's never far away if you do need her help, but otherwise you're left to your tranquil holiday/break which is perfect.
A lovely properly in a lovely location - nearby Cardigan is nice to visit as is the beautiful Poppit Sands (very dog friendly)!
Wonderful base for exploring a beautiful part of the UK
We can not fault the week we spent in Pembrokeshire in Liz's lovely cottage. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival, and 3 generations of our family all felt welcome right away. The area is great to get to various beaches and attractions by car, our young boys had fun doing something different every day.
Special thanks to Liz for collecting our shopping order and letting our boys help feed the chickens. I hope you found the one that escaped!
Cottage was perfect for our family needs, having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom was a must for us having limited mobile travellers, every thing was thought of and every need catered for would recommend this accommodation for peace and tranquillity perfect for our family getaway. Many thanks to Liz x
An unspoilt gem
3 generations of our family stayed at this quite dreamy cottage in the Easter holidays. A lovingly restored and extended home, the Crofts have thoughtfully provided everything one would need and offer a very special welcome. Liz takes great care to ensure the cottage is spotless and nothing is too much trouble.
This part of Pembrokeshire is stunning, unspoilt and full of unexpected historical gems. We would love to come back and stay in this holiday cottage and enjoy the country.
Thanks so much for your review & being the perfect guests! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the children, feeding & chatting about all our animals on the smallholding. I'm glad that your parents were able to make use of our 'downstairs living' & had a wonderful celebration whilst here.
Clean, quiet, beautiful views, a good rest away from busy life.
We are a family of four, at least three of whom are autistic. We all like our downtime, and need time away from the crowds to just be ourselves. Plas Drygarn was a good base for this. We loved the little sun room, wonderfully light and with lovely views, great for an early morning read or evening chill time. Liz was an excellent host, friendly, there if we needed her. We enjoyed the peacocks and wandering guinea fowl, and said hello to the farm dogs when they occasionally came to visit.
Found lovely coastal places to enjoy, especially Mynt, and little Pwllgwaelod, which is off Dinas Head and has a handy pub for chips and ice cream. Farther afield, we enjoyed a trip to Bosherton Lily Pools which is west of Tenby, and doing ‘Paint a pot’ in Narberth.
For those who like hunting second- hand bargains, there are plenty of places in Cardigan to enjoy. We eat a certain amount of gluten- free food, and were amazed by the number of independent health food shops in the area, including one in Crymych itself. Not a sniff of Holland and Barrett.
Favourite cafe in Cardigan was ‘Crwst’, which does lovely food, but our sound-sensitive daughter did need to put her earphones in, as its very noisy - hard floor, high ceiling, many people, chairs scraping.
All in all we had a very happy escape from normal. Even the driving needed to different places was not boring - lots of tree tunnels and lovely views. Can recommend cottage and area.
Thanks so much for this detailed review which I hope will help others with similar needs! It was lovely meeting you all & hearing all about what you got up to whilst here in Pembrokeshire for 2 weeks. I's welcome you all back anytime in the future.
Beautiful cottage in beautiful grounds
Had an amazing time. The cottage is very well equipped and child and dog friendly. Highly recommended
Thanks for the great review. Thoroughly enjoyed having 3 generations of your family staying here & especially chicken feeding & egg collecting with Lily! The dogs were a credit to you, very well behaved...
