Henfryn Farm is a historic 46 acre farm on the banks of the river Teifi. We (Ruth, Tom and children Heidi and Dylan) took on the mantle of sensitively breathing new life into this special place in December 2020. When looking for somewhere to become our family home, West Wales wasn't originally part of the plan, but having discovered Henfryn and its surroundings, we found we had a new one! We are so excited to be able to welcome guests to spend time here.
After traveling the world in our former lives, we are passionate about creating a unique, natural 'getaway' experience closer to home; one that shows off the best of what this beautiful area has to offer. We love it here and we are sure that you, as with so many previous guests, will find you love it too!
Peace & Seclusion
Each place to stay at Henfryn is in a field of its own, so you'll have whole acres to yourselves. We will only ever have a handful of places to stay, spaced out across the most scenic bits of the farm, so you can look forward to a bit of peace and tranquillity
Surrounded by Nature
Large swathes of the site are protected for nature; both the river Teifi Special Area of Conservation and the Altacafan Gorge SSSI form part of the land here, so it's a great place for wildlife. You'll be sure to see at least some of the species that make this their home: kingfishers on the riverbank; red kites and buzzards overhead hunting for voles; swallows swooping acrobatically; bats and barn owls at night; salmon and sea trout jumping in the river; dragonflies hovering; and butterflies rising from the meadow grass.
Sustainability is at the core of what we do. The farm is Soil Association certified organic and our credentials as a Greener Camping Club site mean that recycling and habitat management are an integral part of the way we operate. Where we can, we produce things we need on the farm itself. For example, the timber used in many of the structures is from trees felled on site. When we do need to source from outside, we try to work with local suppliers and/or companies that seek to make a positive difference across everything we buy, from the coffee to the toilet paper.
There is a carbon offset scheme with trees and hedges planted for every member who visits, but in practice we are always planting more trees than we have visitors. In the 3 years Jan 2021- Dec 2023 some 14,000 trees are being planted.
It's a journey and there is always more we can do, but it's great that our achievements so far have been recognised with a Gold in the Sustainable Tourism category of the Carmarthenshire Tourism Awards.
