Mon xxth - Fri xxth MONTH 2020

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 Glow camp will be the perfect combination of the two - physical challenge interspersed with relaxation and comfort. As the trees and flowers get ready to burst leaves and wild flowers we will be looking at the transition towards the Spring/Summer & taking better care of yourself.... 

We have partnered with Sophie Hellyer’s Rise Fierce club to bring you 7am swims, soothe your contemplative side with deeply nourishing vinyasa yoga and mindfulness meditations, and give back to the community with a local beach clean up.

We’ll also be joined by some of our fforest favourites, 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 rooms in either Ty Fforest, our Crog lofts, or 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.

The stay includes 3 nourishing DIY breakfasts of granola, eggs, toast and jams, 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

Warm and waterproof clothes and boots as we will be outside enjoying mother nature a lot of the time. Warm snuggly woollies to wrap and cosy up in. A swimming costume if you want to brave a dip in the sea or river or jump in the sauna.

Please bring a creative project you are working on or some basic materials to get you started, whether it be your knitting or sewing kit, a sketchbook or a camera.    This is your time. You decide.

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 one evening.

 

 
 

 

Where you'll be staying

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.

Accommodation

All of the accommodation for Glow is located in the farmyard area, so everyone is close by. There are options for private or shared bedrooms.

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 & toilet. 

All bedding & towels are provided including our own fforest wool blankets.

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.

All bedding & towels are provided including our own fforest wool blankets.

Garden Rooms

Our new Garden rooms are designed to provide simple characterful accommodation for individuals & friends. They are grouped as 3 cottages, with each cottage containing 3 bedrooms sharing an entrance lobby with fridge and tea/coffee facilities. The rooms are entirely lined in pine panelling, are highly insulated with warm air heating to keep you cosy. Beds are custom made, with full size mattresses. Toilet and shower facilities are in the adjacent shower block just a short walk away.

All bedding & towels are provided including our own fforest wool blankets.
