Our 16thC working sheep farm has been the resting stop of shepherds for centuries as they drove their sheep through Wales to the London Markets. They were called Drovers, hence our name & we think its pretty apt for farm holidays & retreats too!
For your break with us you can expect a truly spectacular rural setting, off the beaten track, where the stars shine bright at night.
Nestled at the foothills of the Black Mountains, only a stones throw from famous Hay-on-wye & the Brecon Beacons National Park, so if you can manage to drag yourself away from the farm, there is plenty to do in the area.
