About Robert Hordley
We are Karen and Rob and live here in Pembrokeshire on our 8 acre smallholding. Karen teaches at a local Primary School, whilst Rob is a retired teacher working for the local authority on their educational platform. We have one son and daughter, who have now gone their separate ways, one in Motor Sports Engineering the other a Graphic Designer. We love the outdoors that Pembrokeshire offers, walking the dog, a border collie call Bramble, along the Coast Path, on the beach or up the mountains. Our main passions - the garden, classic cars and Pembrokeshire.
Robert Hordley purchased this Farmhouse in 1996
Why Robert Hordley chose Rudbaxton
We moved to Pembrokeshire from Shropshire, via Oxfordshire, following Robs' career path in education. We were fortunate to be able to purchase such a beautiful Farm House which is set in 8 acres of countryside on the outskirts of Haverfordwest. Yet the town and its facilities are only a few minutes away. Centrally located within the County means that we can visit all areas of Pembrokeshire, from the Preseli Hills in the North, St Davids in the North West, the surfing beaches to the West and the popular holiday resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot to the South.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Located at the end of a private lane and with a very large garden, wood, fields, stream and pond we can offer our guest a relaxing hideaway holiday, yet for those more adventurous of you then the sights and delights of Pembrokeshire are only a few minutes away. Sailing on the river, golf course (10 minutes away), beaches, coastal walks, trips to the Islands etc - well come and find out for yourself. You will be more than welcome.

The beds were definately 5 star, the best comfortable nights sleep ever. It was so lovely when we came into the property it was really welcoming with fresh cut flowers from the garden, my wife really appreciated this, and of course the lovely home baked Victoria sponge. Thank you Rob and Karen for such a lovely stay in your beautiful country house it was so spacious for the girls and they loved the garden too. We would definately recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet location just outside the town of haverfordwest.
Thank you and we will be back again. Nick and Emma
