Inspired by the Swedish concept of Syjunta - coming together to chat and share skills and knowledge, supporting and inspiring each other in a relaxing environment with comforting food.

We have always promoted "Active Relaxation" - clearing your mind through the challenge of learning new skills and the physical demands of a tough day's play. We also understand the luxury of just doing nothing, quietly sitting on the deck, watch the deer, read a book, or simply day dream.

This Autumn Glow camp will be the perfect combination of the two - physical challenge interspersed with relaxation and comfort. With the leaves already beginning to change colour we will be looking at the transition towards autumn and taking better care of yourself.... 

There will be yoga every day with Clem Balfour from the fun and inspirational 'Yoga brunch club', who is on a mission to make yoga more accessible to everyone. We will go wild swimming and take a canoe trip down the beautiful River Teifi. There will be beach boot camp to get your heart rate going with Sarah. You can run or you can walk, take it fast or slow, whatever works best for you, we are going to accommodate all abilities. With Tamsin from Woodland Creations we will learn how to make fire without matches. We will cook with fire and learn how to make kimchi, kraut and kefir, so find out all about having a healthy gut. Plus there will be a little pampering and reflexology.

We are still tweaking the final schedule, there might be axe throwing, there might be some spontaneous campfire singing, there probably will be fforest gin!

Come alone or with a friend to enjoy the company and comfort of being a part of this small and intimate gathering. Hosted in the peaceful surroundings of fforest with tasty and nourishing food.

 

Accommodation is in comfortable shared rooms in either Ty Fforest, our crog lofts or a kata cabin, a private double with en-suite in Ty Fforest and in our new garden rooms.

 
 

 

What you’ll be eating

We take pride in our food. We grow many of our own salads and greens. We are blessed with fantastic local produce on our doorstep. That makes it easy to keep it simple, seasonal, local and delicious. Everything is freshly prepared and will be mostly vegetarian. We will be making hearty soups with local breads for lunch and cooking comforting suppers from seasonal produce.

We encourage those of you who love to bake to bring a cake, or heathly treat to share with tea.

The stay includes 3 nourishing breakfasts, 2 light lunches and 3 hearty suppers. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies when booking so that we can take these into consideration when planning the menus.

 

What to Bring

Bring along comfortable clothing for the outdoors.  Trainers, walking boots or wellies for walking or running.  Your swimming gear & a beach towel for a river or sea dip.  If you have your own favourite yoga mat bring that too.   Lastly, some cosy woollies for evenings outdoors & a raincoat (just in case).

Remember to pack a bottle of wine or two if you would like to relax on the sofa with a drink in the evening or have a glass with dinner. We do also have our own little private pub on site with an inglenook fireplace which we will fire up for at least one evening.

 

 
 

 

Where you'll be staying

Every aspect of a comfortable stay and a good night’s sleep has been considered at fforest. We’ve given a lot of thought to the furnishings, using ethically sourced materials and local products which blend function with form. The end result is a combination of thousands of tiny decisions.

We’ve tried to think of everything. We hope you agree.

Ty fforest

From the outside, this is a farmhouse a child would draw: stout as a cottage loaf with a flour-white face and proud chimneys. Inside, though, it has all the swish of a Scandi ski lodge, with its pine cladding and patterned Welsh blankets.  The five bedrooms provide cosy comfort, each with their own shower room.  Bed linen & towels provided. 

Crog Lofts

The crog lofts combine heritage quality restoration, natural materials and timeless design. Inside you'll find slate floors with underfloor heating, luxurious shower rooms, bespoke furnishings & textiles combined with quality mid-century furniture. Inside is all about comfort, but with the living space spilling out onto the covered terrace you never forget how close you are to the beauty of nature and our rugged Welsh landscape.  Bed linen & towels provided. 

 Katacabin

The katacabins are all located along the field boundaries tucked into the trees, bushes and wildflowers. Each kata deck has plenty of room for lounging and offers uninterrupted views of the landscape.  There are five raised beds around the edge with a cosy gas stove in the centre and an enclosed outdoor kitchen & dining area.  Sleeping bags & pillows provided.

Garden Rooms

The garden rooms provide characterful accommodation. Arranged as a terrace of three 3-roomed cottages, each has an entrance lobby with space to make tea/coffee. The cosy pine-panelled bedrooms have all bedding provided.

fforest farm

fforest farm is set in 200 acres of rural beauty sandwiched between the river Teifi gorge and the Teifi Marshes nature reserve, minutes from the town of Cardigan and from the beautiful beaches and coves of the West Wales coast. Sian will take you on a walk through the deer-inhabited woodland when you arrive.

Hidden in the woods is our cedar barrel sauna (and cold shower for the brave). Just down the path from here is the Bwthyn, our very own little pub and the oldest building on the farm. A beautiful candlelit old stone cottage with inglenook fireplace.
