A 17th century farmstead overlooking the Brecon Beacons
Now a smallholding of 30 acres, this was once a substantial late-medieval holding of some 140+ acres dating back to the early 1600s.
The farm supports a small flock of pedigree Ryeland sheep, poultry, ducks and geese as well as a lively springer spaniel and a multicoloured array of cats!
We are managing the farm for nature and habitat with traditional hedge-laying, coppicing and new woodland planting as well as scrubland formation and wetland creation. Our next step is to re-establish wildflower meadows. We monitor our wildlife with bird boxes across the farm, bat boxes, tawny owl and barn owl boxes. We are currently surveying our woodland for hazel dormice with dormouse boxes.
We can offer guided tours of the farm and our re-wilding projects
The Brecon Beacons is an International Dark-Sky reserve, only the 5th in the world with this status! On a clear night just from outside the hut, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers.
Take your time to explore the farm - have a picnic by the babbling brook, wander through the restored orchard, walk along the old farm lane for views over the Black Mountains
"What a spot! So unspoilt - a great location to view the local area."
"We enjoyed listening to the tawny owls, watching red kites and buzzards soar overhead and flitting bats at dusk."
"A wonderful base to enjoy the Hay Festival just 25-30 minutes away - so much to see and do!"
