Gwalia is a traditional family smallholding in the heart of rural mid-Wales. Depending on the time of year and particular animal personalities you're welcome to come and meet/cuddle/feed the animals. We have a range of livestock including chickens, pigs, sheep and cattle. Much of the land is managed with conservation in mind, protecting habitat for wild flowers, dragon flies, otters, badgers, insects, bats and a fantastic range of bird life so keep your eyes peeled for exciting visitors!
