For Cool FarmStays & Gatherings in the Sticks. Come Free Range with us on our 16th Century Organic Farm. For Farm Holidays, Groups & Wild Weddings.
Tucked away in the Welsh Hills. Known for our Luxurious ‘Cool Farm Stays and Gatherings in the Sticks’ and our passion for food grown the proper way. Drovers Rest is a relaxed, hands on kinda place.
We pride ourselves on being much more than just posh award winning accommodation. Here it’s all about the experience you have! We believe in the magic that happens when people gather.
That’s why a big part of what we do here at Drovers, is gather people. Around our farm activities, our dinner table, camp fires, walking the old Drovers paths and our Epic Events. Once you’ve experienced our convivial gatherings, you’ll never want to leave! You’ll also feel a definite African type of vibe going on here.
From the Lush Safari Tents and Country Cottages, to the Guinea Fowls roaming the land, from the menus and our food cooked outdoors on open fires to the staff uniforms, table styling and warm African hospitality.
Having grown up in South Africa, the beat of the African drum still lives strongly in our hearts and we thought a touch of Africa in the Welsh hills would be kinda nice! We also love dogs and have been said to be the most dog friendly place EVER!
At Drovers Rest we host the best Farm Stays, Group Gatherings, Workshops and Wild Weddings. Well-behaved dogs can Free-range too!
Although we are self catering we put on food nights, secret supper clubs, breakfasts and fully catered events so you can have a break from cooking and taste the delicious organic produce we grow right here on the farm.
We have 3 lush recently converted, Drovers cottages and 7 Super Posh Safari Glamping Tents, dotted around the Farm. Each unit sleeps 4 in 2 separate bedrooms (ask about a 3rd child!).
Located at the foothills of the Black Mountains, off the beaten track within stones throw to our village, the famous book-town Hay on wye, and the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park. Borderland between Wales and Herefordshire.
