RAISING STANDARDS TOGETHER

School & College groups visiting us here at Pwll Caerog Farm stay in our comfy bunkhouse accommodation, eat home cooked food and can take part in adventurous activities, educational workshops and still find time to explore this incredible area with diverse geology, marine and wildlife.

From our group accommodation base within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with exceptional sea views, you will enjoy easy access to some awesome activities such as Coasteering, Kayaking, Rock Climbing and Surfing. Equally as the Coastal path runs through the farm there is endless walking and hiking. For the intrepid we have the Mud Run here on site. Not discounting other fantastic activities including overnight bivi trips, canoeing, bushcraft sessions, rock pooling and raft building all within easy reach.

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMMES

Our team will schedule an amazing programme of events tailor made to you and your group. We want to ensure that you have the finest experience, to ensure everyone in your party has the best time and the find outcomes you are you seeking, through adventure. We can also program visits to the Historical sites of St Davids Cathedral & Bishops palace which are just around the corner or to the many castles of Pembrokeshire. including the stunning Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII. The Castell Henllys bronze age fort experience is another cracker of a day out for all groups.

We can create opportunities for students to extend the National Curriculum by taking part in a number of environmental and conservation activities. These include hedge bank building, discussing marine plastics, prepping the ground for an orchard, and building bug hotels. We regularly deliver guided tours of the working farm with explanation of land use and sustainable issues – From Field to Plate.

What ever you requirements are for a trip for you group, simply get in touch and start it all off with a chat .

Ian, the owner, is passionate about the wildlife and conservation of the wonderful Pembrokeshire countryside. Ian is a fourth Generation Farmer on the St Davids Peninsular, his Grandfather farmed Ramsey Island from 1934-1946. Having been immersed in the local culture and land all his life, Ian has extensive historical knowledge of farming and of the local area which he is keen to impart to enhance children’s awareness of where their food comes from and how it is produced, through ‘hands on’ experience of life on the farm.

The farm’s position further enables schools to promote marine ecology projects and freshwater/seawater marine life comparisons. The farm has been used for art projects and geography field trip studies. Students can investigate the diversification and changes that have occurred in farming on the St Davids peninsular, all of which fit well into the Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 curriculum.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, The Darwin Centre and National Trust are often involved with schools visiting Pwll Caerog Farm. Educational projects have included opening bridle paths, beach cleaning and clearing open field areas.

“It is not as far as you may think and well worth the trip when you get here”

“We were blown away by the attention to detail and caring approach by all of the staff – our students felt very well looked after indeed. There was a suggestion that perhaps we might look for an alternative location for our camp.  The backlash from the staff involved in first year camp was ferocious to say the least – such is the value they place on coming down to St Davids, and to Pwll Caerog in particular”.
