About Winter warmer in the woodsWork up some winter warmth with scrub clearance and big bonfires.
Work alongside our staff and regular volunteers clearing invasive laurel and rhododendron in the estate woodland. There'll be plenty of sawing and chopping and big brushwood bonfires to keep us all warm. To keep things interesting we'll throw in a wide range of other garden and estate tasks when it gets too hot to tend the fires.
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. 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. Accommodation is in two three-person dorms.
