Autism Friendly holidays on our farm
At Cwmcrwth Farm we aim to offer autism friendly holidays to families with children and adults on the autism spectrum. We regularly host families with a wide selection of learning disabilities and autism. Including ADHD and Aspergers syndrome, children who attend special schools and adults living in supported housing.
What all the families have in common is a wish for a relaxed holiday for ALL the family. We understand parents find it a challenge to find family friendly and autism friendly holidays to suit everyone’s needs. Often parents feel on edge not wanting to be judged by others, not wanting to let their children down and hoping everything will be perfect. We can’t promise perfection but we will do our best!

What makes us an Autism Friendly Holiday choice?
Our small farm in a quiet rural location is ideal for children and adults with autism. There is no constant background noise and no loud noise. We have lots of outdoors space to let off steam and friendly animals to visit whenever you wish. As we only have 3 cottages, there are never more than 12 other guests in addition to your family group.
Our ethos is very relaxed and we do our best to support families.
Our guests have always been very supportive and non judgemental of fellow guests. Children have been quick to make friends and join in together and everyone has a smile on their face.
Joining in animal feeding rounds and working with the animals is a huge attraction for our guests. If group activities are too challenging we are more than happy to discuss one to one and family activities to ensure your family don’t miss out.
Farmer Rob has a great way with children and is able to ensure everyone gets the most from their holidays especially the hands on time with the animals.
Our animals are all used to attention from children and show patience with everyone. The lambs love being lead to the field and the donkeys enjoy providing rides and especially like a carrot treat.

Unfortunately our farm is not really suitable for children and adults with severe physical disabilities. Please be aware it can be uneven under foot and not suitable for wheelchairs. We have a ground floor single storey cottage but do not have fully accessible facilities.
