West Wales' leaders in Care Farming and socially responsible tourism

Double Winners at the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards 2013, we have been awarded Gold Standard by Green Tourism since we signed up in 2011.

Based on our organic family farm, we have two holiday cottages which sleep 4 and 6 people. Graded by Visit Wales, the well equipped cottages make a great base to explore west Wales coast and countryside including the Teifi Valley and Preseli Mountains.

Clynfyw Farm is a 300 acre organic farm and woodland in North Pembrokeshire that has been farmed by the Lewis-Bowen family since the1750s. Since 1985 it has offered high-quality accessible accommodation in converted Victorian farm buildings.

Trading under the company name Clynfyw Countryside Centre Ltd (Clynfyw CC) since 1999, we expanded on the holidays to include weddings, conferences and a variety of courses based around the environment, disability access and sustainability.

In 2009 the Clynfyw CC Directors decided to refocus our efforts, concentrating on our strengths – disability access around the farm, inclusive holiday provision and the knowledge we have gained of the needs of the disabled community locally and further afield.

In 2011 Clynfyw Community Interest Company (CIC) was constituted to run day care services and related activities on a Care Farm. Clynfyw CC still exists managing the holiday cottages, while Clynfyw CIC runs as a Care Farm which is open to everyone, but with a focus on supporting ‘vulnerable people’ in general.

Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) has been using Clynfyw CC’s cottages for respite stays for its Learning Disability team since 2009, with care support provided by a number of different registered domiciliary care providers (commissioned directly by PCC).

In 2015 we set up our own domiciliary care agency and now the majority of support is provided by our own team. We were already providing many of the services highlighted as good practice in the Welsh Government’s Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, and Clynfyw has been mentioned in the Senedd as a centre of good practice.

We provide supported tenancy provision for six people, funded by Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire County Councils, and provide respite provision for residents of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion, as well as for holiday makers from all over the UK.

Our Projects are all person-centred, developing on the back of feedback and stated interest of the people we support. The projects include small-scale horticulture, crafting, charcoal making, pork and poultry production, independent living and life-skills, computer literacy, swimming, football and other sporting engagement and other low-impact activities which help excluded people form a better understanding of farms and the rural environment. Whenever possible these are linked to ASDAN accreditation with Clynfyw becoming a recognised training centre.

We also offer schools and individuals a chance to ‘get to know’ farm animals and to understand agriculture and food provenance in a supported manner.

We run numerous projects and microenterprises including rescue chickens, community apple juicing, horticulture, community gardening service, cookery club and the Wheelie Good Idea in which we refurbish donated wheelchairs and mobility aids for rehousing in Africa.

We hold regular social events and coffee mornings for different charities from Surfers against Sewage to the British Institute of Human Rights, by whom we have been recognised as a Champion of Human Rights.

We have miles of woodland trails and walks and a sculpture trail with a roundhouse built with volunteers by the legendary roundhouse expert Tony Wrench.

Visitors are welcome to get involved in our projects and activities.
