Welcome to the Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, a tourist attraction at the foot of the Preseli Mountains in West Wales. Come and join us for a day of fun and nostalgia as you get to know (or maybe reacquaint yourself) with these majestic ‘gentle giants’. There is plenty for the whole family to do, whatever the weather. Take a tractor ride around this working farm, then enjoy a horse and cart ride. Meet the other traditional farmyard animals such as our Welsh Pigs, Balwen Sheep, donkeys and also our visitors from South America, the Llamas. You can even help to feed the calves and pet the smaller animals.
There is an indoor soft play area and outdoor adventure area to entertain our younger visitors, as well as Crazy Golf, Croquet, Sand Shed and Skittles. We have opened a Nature Trail with woodlands and hedgerows to explore and stunning views of the Preseli Mountains to enjoy.
Throughout the summer the farm hosts interactive demonstrations.
Come and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of watching our Farrier, John Davies perform the ancient rural craft of farriery. John will tell you what he is doing and also be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
For many years, the Shire Horse Farm has been fortunate to host Falconry demonstrations performed by Janet Barber who brings along her feathered friends for you to meet and interact with. You can also see our horses working and dressed in harness. We hold daily harnessing demonstrations, during which we will dress the horse in a working set of harness and explain the function and history of the harness. During the summer there will also be opportunities to see plaiting demonstrations and showing demonstrations.
There are ample picnic opportunities at Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, each with their own spectacular view. Alternatively, why not allow us to take care of the catering by joining us for a light snack or meal at the recently refurbished ‘Café Celt’. Ice Creams and refreshments are also available from the gift shop.
