Staying at Nantseren, you’ll notice the cycle of hill farming around you. A farming diary in the glamping barn will let you know what's happening during your stay, both on the farm and locally. You can see what's on, and let us know if you’d like to get involved.
Early spring is lambing time, it's lovely to watch the lambs frolicking in surrounding fields, and you can help feed them too. Shearing time is May/June, with opportunities to watch or even have a go! Summer is the time for the local agricultural shows and harvesting. Autumn and Winter are the seasons for hedge laying, tree planting and dry stone walling.
Hill farming involves regularly moving sheep from fields to common grazing land on the mountain - it's a process called hefting. Gathering is the job of bringing the sheep back to the pens and fields.
Learn some Welsh with a guided walk through our fields. Welsh names often tell a story - our farm is Nantrhodyn, which means stream by the kiln. Each field has a Welsh name, which goes back generations. In many places these are forgotten; here we use them everyday. The landscape, local culture and history come to life as you explore and learn.
There are lots of other opportunities to learn some Welsh while staying here; we have bilingual information panels, leaflets and books in the barn - it's easy to learn a few phrases. The Welsh language is very much alive in Llanddeusant, give it a go! We are planning workshops and retreats for Welsh learners of all abilities - sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram.
