Cwmberach Uchaf Farm
South Wales, Brecon Beacons
Cwmberach Uchaf Farm covers 80 acres on the beautifully wild Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Amazing views are offered by tents sited in a sheltered corner of the farm, of the Amman valley and the mountain. The combination of animals to meet is very special, with unusual breeds of sheep, beehives for delicious homegrown honey, goats, and by the spring lambs and piglets.
The farmland has the variety you would hope for from a National Park: pasture, moorland, woodland and mountain grazing, with a small river - the Berach - running through it, with mountain springs and marshland dotted throughout. It has prompted visitors to comment on its genuine away-from-it-all feeling of remoteness, quiet and wildness. The farm has been in Sarah Dempster’s family 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.
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.
