About Opening the spring

Help us create access to a delightful area around a shaded spring.

There’s a little corner of the woodland that has been fenced off for years and we want you to help us bring it into the garden. You’ll work alongside our staff and volunteers removing fencing and extending the paths into the edge of the pasture where one of our small streams springs from the ground, so that all our visitors can experience this lovely place. There will be a wide range of other estate and garden tasks thrown in to keep things varied and interesting.

About the accommodation

Little Craig-y-Borion Farm sits at the heart of the 900-acre Colby Estate. The farmhouse dates back at least 200 years and is an old stone and lime-mortar building restored and refurbished in 2015. Accommodation is in two three-person dorms.Heated by wood burners and solar panels with a newly replanted orchard and kitchen garden in the making, it sits in a beautiful location far from the road and surrounded by woodland and meadows. There is a large network of woodland paths right on the doorstep and the beach at Amroth is a 30-minute walk away through lovely woodland. 

Notes for guests

Stout footwear and adequate work wear are essential. Gardening gloves advisable.
