The Farmhouse accommodation comprises two en-suite double bedrooms with far reaching views over the Gwendreath Valley. The bedrooms are fully equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, dressing table, hairdryer, and a colour television with either a video or DVD player. Bedroom 1 has an ensuite bathroom and Bedroom 2 an ensuite shower room.
Bryngwenyn Farm Breakfast is served in the in the dining room and a sitting room is available for our guests to use should they wish to do so.
The three self-catering Cottages are situated just across the yard from the farmhouse and are conversions of a former barn. They are comfortably furnished and sleep up to five adults with either two or three bedrooms. Each cottage is fully equipped with an electric cooker, fridge-freezer, microwave, colour TV and Video or DVD player. Heating is by night storage with additional electric "log burning stoves".
A washing machine and tumble dryer is available on site for guests to use.
The cottages have a large shared garden with swings and a new willow wigwam which should have grown well by the summer holidays. There is a picnic bench for each cottage and at the side a patio area with tables and chairs where guests can enjoy a barbecue in the evening sunshine.
We are an organic farm of about 60 acres with a flock of 80 Lleyn and Suffolk-cross ewes some pedigree Welsh Black suckler cows and some rare breed Balwen sheep
Derek a Welsh Cob and Eddie a Miniature Shetland came to us from the RSPCA. They are both very quiet and friendly. Eddie was featured on television in an RSPCA campaign against cruelty to animals.
Cleo and Gemma are the two angora goats who share the orchard with rabbits, chickens, ducks, and geese. Sandy is a Golden Guernsey goat who we hope to breed from this year and who will eventually provide us with milk.
We have a great variety of unusual breeds of poultry including Welsummers, who lay beautiful deep brown eggs, cream legbars who lay pale blue eggs, several types of Peking bantams with feathery feet and fluffy blue and gold Silkie's. This year we will again be hatching lots of chicks,and ducklings.
Jack and Jill the Lop Eared rabbits had four adorable little baby bunnies this year, and we are hoping to have a special rabbit area ready for the summer where they can runabout to their hearts content.
Lily the lamb one of twins who were orphaned and had to be bottlefed, will join our special ewes, along with Lammy our very first and Cuddles whose nature you can guess from her name.Snowflake,visitors named after watching her birth one snowy afternoon. Lucy, Sky, Lizzie,and Annie. We also have the rams Georgie, Boris and Henry.
We participate in Tir Gofal the Welsh agri environment scheme set up to encourage agricultural practices which will protect and enhance the landscapes of Wales, and associated wildlife. We have been very busy restoring hedgerows and preserving our ancient hay meadows and unimproved wetland. The hay meadow is a sight to behold in late July and the perfume from all the different flowers is quite beautiful.
Our most recent project has been to restore a small lake, the area has been cleared of brambles the lake dredged and the edges have been planted with wild flowers suitable for waterside and bog areas. it has been stocked with perch and rudd and will surely be a lovely spot for our guests who like to fish or those who would simply like to just sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility.
Why not make up a fishing party for a relaxing weekend
