Things to do

 
 

What else happens in West Wales? 

if you feel the need to leave the farm there's lots to do around here whatever the weather.  We know of hidden beaches, circular walks and gems of pubs and restaurants (ask us when you are see us).  But here are a few more of our favourite places to visit and things to do all within 30 minutes of Sloeberry Farm.

 

Canoe the Gorge - Heritage Canoes

The Teifi River gorge is one of the best examples of tidal gorge in the whole country and offers a safe and awe inspiring location for your whole family to try a fun new sport. The river is very slow, flat water for most of the journey and there are a set of gentle rapids which you can run at the end of the trip. Expect to see native wildlife including kingfishers, rare dragonflies and if you’re really lucky an otter!
