About Wildflowers, hedges, bats and barn owls

Help us increase the wildlife on our estate and keep our garden in order.

Help us to increase the nature value of our farmland by improving hedgerows and field margins. Working alongside our staff and other volunteers, you'll be sowing wildflower strips for pollinating bees and other insects and sowing field margins with seed mixes providing food for birds, mice and voles. There will also be work helping to maintain the hedges in and around the walled garden and a wide range of other estate and garden tasks available 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.
