Mountain Biking, Bird & Badger Watching Holidays, Fungi Forays, Mid Wales

Easter lamb on Nannath Fawr FarmMountain Biking, Bird and Badger Watching Holidays, Fungi Forays, Mid Wales. The farm is a tranquil place to stay and ideal for those whose priority is rest and relaxation. Each cottage has a garden area with outdoor furniture, ideal for reading and eating al fresco. Barbecues are available. With 200 acres to explore, there are many activities to enjoy on the farm or close by. Take a delightful short stroll through meadows, by the river or along the lane. A longer ‘figure of eight’ walk will take you on a marked path through all the diverse environments on the farm, through ancient woodlands, on to the high hills above the farm, to the wetlands, along the river and back across hay meadows and pastures.

It is easy to access the Radnorshire Wildlife Trust reserve at Glilfach, just across the river and the road. You can cycle through parts of the farm either on steep mountain bike tracks or along the lane, which is part of the national Lôn Las cycle route 8.

The walks and the cycle track will take Mid Walesyou out onto the open common on the hills behind the farm. From here there are spectacular long distance walks such as the ‘Monks Trod’ and ‘Byway Clifford’ as well as many public rights of way across the wild moorland of the Elan Valley. There are undercover places to store your own bikes and we have some (not the latest models) available to borrow, by arrangement. Children love the sense of freedom whilst exploring the farm and usually enjoy the riverbank, with pebbles to skim and pools for paddling. There are farmyard animals and poultry to see and lambs during the spring. We have an outdoor play area with castle and playhouse for younger children.

PrimrosesThe games room has table tennis, pool and table football. Hawksdrift Falconry can be booked in advance of your stay for short or longer sessions on the farm. The sessions include flying a Harris hawk and other hands on activities, suitable for everyone capable of a two hour gentle walk. Our guests are always impressed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of Layla and Mike. Birdwatchers and those interested in the wildlife and ecology of the area should find plenty to see at Nannerth and because of our organic status, many more species can thrive in a healthy envioronment. From dippers and pied flycatchers to red kites, the farm has over fifty species of birds and 150 nest boxes.

The wetlands are teeming with wildlife which includes frogs, toads and newts, seventeen species of dragonfly, otter and the increasingly rare water vole. There are many badgers on the farm and guests can often see them in the evenings. We have constructed a treehouse badger hide which sits above an extensive sett, giving views from above of their nocturnal activities.

The treehouse is close to the river amongst large oak trees and can also be used for bird watching during the day. The woodlands, hedges, rough pasture, hay meadows and wetlands produce masses of interesting plants, lichens and the insects which thrive in these areas. We have several guests who record moths and visitors who like to photograph and record birds and insects. Some have generously passed on their pictures to us and they are included in our galleries.
