We strive to operate our farm according to sound environmental principles. To learn more about our 'Green Credentials' click on the image to the left or here.

The holiday accommodation is in one of two caravans.

Both caravans are set in their own landscaped enclosure and both have a seating area.

This is a perfect place to sit and watch the wildlife, and take in the scenery, or just relax at the end of the day and watch the sun set.

Local Attractions

We are in a most enviable position for those who love the countryside, there is a footpath from the farm itself, which takes you to the top of the mountain, and a second path takes a more leisurely, but longer route around it. From here you have endless access to explore the wonderful surrounding countryside which is a haven for birdwatchers and cyclists alike. In addition there are a great many other superb routes for both walkers and cyclists many of which are circular routes. Lake Vyrnwy is an easy drive away and is a great day out for all the family but of especial interest to the energetic cyclist or walker.

We are only four miles from the Welshpool and Llanfair light railway. This is a truly superb narrow gauge steam railway. Starting at Llanfair Caereinion the WLLR has a shop and a tea room and the steam train takes a leisurely journey through the spectacular countryside to Welshpool and back, the whole journey taking two hours. Welshpool itself is a traditional market town, still holding a market two days a week. In addition, there is a fascinating selection of small shops. There are also four garden centres within ten miles and the Powys Castle and grounds are situated in Welshpool itself which is a wonderful day out. The Castle is a very special place and well worth a visit.

This part of Mid Wales is an explorer's paradise, with endless wonderful villages and attractions together with markets fetes and fairs. Mid Wales is a great place to find out about the wonderful welsh people, language and traditions.

A little further afield is the Centre for Alternative Technology (C.A.T) and further afield still is the coast with such wonderful sea side resorts as Aberystwyth with its great shops with its Victorian Cliff Railway and as a starting point for the Vale of Rheidol Railway.

On arrival you will find details of all local attractions are available in your accommodation.
