There are extra chairs in the woodshed, and if you fancy a picnic, there's a picnic rug and also blankets for you to use.There is a small herb garden just outside the front of the farm house, do please feel free to help yourself. If you are there at the right time of year, there is also a large apple tree and lots of wild blackberry bushes in the garden and if you go for a walk then the farm has plenty of sloe bushes, the odd hazel tree and random apple trees – again, do please feel free to help yourself.Farm YardCarregywen is located on a quiet working farm, so you may see the occasional Landrover and horsebox driving through the farmyard. If you are lucky, you may get to see the farmers using the big green barn – they are really friendly and don't mind curious children (or adults!) if you want to investigate. If you are at the farm any time from mid February you will see hundreds and hundreds of beautiful spring lambs in the fields around the farmhouse!There is plenty of secure parking for any number of cars. (2-3 within enclosed farmhose area, a further 5 spaces to the rear of the property).The farm borders the river Chwefri which if you're looking for a pre-lunch or dinner walk is absolutely beautiful to amble along, especially as the sun goes down.
