Mid Wales is a fantastic spot for wildlife lovers. The landscape has barely changed in centuries and the area has become a haven for birds, small mammals and a wide variety of wild flowers.
The River Wye carves through the area, from its source in on Plynlimon in the Cambrian Mountains. A rugged and wide-open region of ancient hills where there are some great walks that allow you can see plenty of wildlife, including the iconic Red Kite, which thrives in the area.
Along the river banks there are Salmon, Sandpipers, Otters and Kingfishers. It’s not uncommon to see a dazzling dragon fly and sometimes even a shy water vole along the trickling streams.
In 2015 we started keeping bees on the farm, with the support of a wonderful local bee keeper we are starting to produce our own honey which we are selling in the shop. Bees play such an important role in our ecosystem, including keeping the flowers at the campsite flourishing.
The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme has teamed up with the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) to form the Honey Bee Friendly Park Project which aims to get as many parks as possible working to conserve Britain’s bees.
