A Working Farm in a Beautiful Area of West Wales
Within our 67 acres, you have the option to use The Barn for entertaining your guests indoors, a wide variety of outdoor spaces, The Potting Shed, a paddock for camping and two lakes. The church is also quite literally at the end of our driveway.
A Historic Hill Farm
Ffosyrodyn is a historic hill farm dating from the 1700’s. We are continuing its 250-year sheep farming tradition by the breeding and grazing of sheep on our upland hill fields.
The name Ffosyrodyn means ‘ditch of the kiln’ and it is assumed that this referred to a Roman pottery kiln on the site of the farm – several Roman roads and forts are scattered around the immediate area. The farm also borders a stream rich in clay (the Aeron Fechan) and there is evidence of a stone building on the banks.
Photo opportunities abound. From the farm, there are far reaching views to the Cambrian mountains – one of Britain’s last true wildernesses with a dark sky status.
Our lakes attract a wide range of wild birds, ducks, geese and herons and we are also proud to have an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) on the farm, boasting the ideal habitat for the Marsh Fritillary butterfly and the Devils Bit Scabious flowers that are integral to its feeding and reproductive habits.
To help provide a broad range of habitats for the long term, we have also recently planted 17,000 native broadleaf trees around the farm.
