A Nature Trail With A Difference

Imagination meets nature in the mystical setting of the Upper Wye valley.

Small delights and tiny treasures await as you wander through the orchard, dip for minnows in Y Nant Perlan, make a den in the woods, hang your wish on the wishing tree, cast a spell in the witches’ cavern, tell tales beneath the spreading chestnut tree, and follow the seasons through the snowdrop woods, banks of wild spring bluebells and ox-eye daisies in the drowsy summer hay meadow……………

“Make me a willow cabin at your gate” – Viola, Twelfth Night
“Books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in every thing” – Duke Senior, As You Like it
“The wish deserves a welcome” – The Provost, Measure for Measure
“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows…Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows” – Oberon, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

So many of Shakespeare’s plays contain references to nature. Here on our organic farm we reflectively link his words with the natural world. Children and grown ups alike will enjoy our very own Nature Trail which is available for guided tours on request.
