Why we've chosen Cwmberach Uchaf Farm

Brecon Beacons National Park is home to Cwmberach Uchaf Farm, spreading over 80 acres in the shadow of the beautifully wild Black Mountain. The tents are all sited in a sheltered corner of the farm, between the Amman valley and the mountain. An active farm, meet unusual breeds of sheep, see the beehives for delicious homegrown honey, pat the goats, and in the spring, spot the lambs and piglets.

Based in a National Park, you can explore pasture, moorland, woodland and mountain grazing, with a small river - the Berach - running through it, you have access to both mountain springs and marshland. Visitors comment on the genuine away-from-it-all feeling of remoteness, quiet and wildness.

Sarah Dempster’s family has run the farm for several generations, but there were 15 years before Mark and Sarah took over when the farm was left to return to nature. It has become something of a nature reserve, with everything to see and hear from badgers, foxes, owls, red kites and other endangered bird species still thriving. Cuckoos, now the 5th most endangered bird in the UK, visit every year as they always have.

With nature still very much having its own way at Cwmberach Uchaf, their version of the Feather Down farm tour has much to shows and tell how Welsh mountain-farming runs hand-in-hand with nature, including information on nature trails that guests will be free to explore. Access to the mountain and a bridleway lies only metres behind the tent site.

Greentraveller's Insight: The Featherdown Farm Tent
The tents are large enough to fit six people – a maximum of five adults and one child up to 12 years old. Cooking & heating is provided by a cosy wood-burning stove, plus you'll get one crate of firewood provided per day. There is an ample living area (45 square metres), which includes a flushing toilet and spacious, comfortable beds. Each tent includes bed and kitchen linen, the tent’s kitchen has cold running water and there are hot showers on site.

Nearby, visit Carreg Cennen castle, reached by a beautiful 5-mile walking route or a lovely marketing town on the River Towy, Llandeilo, and beside it, Dinefwr Castle. The glacial lakes of Llyn y Fan Fach and Lyn y Fan Fawr are temping as is Dinefwr Riding Centre, offering riding lessons 3 miles from Cwmberach Uchaf Farm.
