The Clyne Estate has a rich history and in the 1800's, many dignitaries were welcomed to enjoy hunting deer in the woods, often taking tea on the lawn of The Keeper's Cottage. It is said that these dignitaries included former British Prime Ministers Stanley Baldwin and Sir Winston Churchill, and also royalty including Prince Edward who later became King Edward VII and his grandson Prince Edward who later briefly became King Edward the VIII.

Clyne Farm Centre offers nine beautifully maintained, fully-furnished holiday cottages with coastal or woodland views. Seven of the cottages are located around a central courtyard so are perfect for large groups. In addition, some of them can interconnect. The other two cottages (The Keeper's Cottage and Barn Owl Lodge) are located in beautiful woodland only a short drive away. All cottages are dog-friendly.

Program

Day 1

Arrive after 3:00 p.m. and settle into your self-catering cottage.

Day 2

The day will be spent in the stables. You will look after your own horse or pony for the day. You will be responsible for its every need including grooming, feeding, and tacking up, before you ride out on the great Gower plains. In the morning, you will have a 1-hour riding lesson in the all-weather riding school. In the afternoon, it is time to head out on a 1-hour hack, either across the local common or into woodland.

Day 3

Check out is at 10:00 a.m. but Clyne Farm Centre can look after your bags. You will spend your day with your horse or pony and can choose to finish your weekend with another 2 x 1-hour hacks or you can hone your skills one more time with a lesson. The day finishes at 3p.m.

Bushcraft and survival

Test your survival abilities with the bushcraft challenge! There is a tradition of bushcraft and survival at Clyne Farm Centre which goes back a long way. In fact, all the way to when Clyne Farm opened as an activity centre in 1989.

Challenge Valley

The famed assault course has been dubbed the ‘muddiest assault course in the world.’ Are you prepared to find out why? Ideal for a fun and dirty day out.

Gorge walking

Scramble against the flow of the river through natural waterfalls and dip pools. It can be booked as an offsite activity day.

Indoor climbing

Take on the challenging climbing wall at the farm. Just because it is indoors does not make it easy.

Raft building

Rock climbing

The cliffs along the Gower coastline are formidable but with the right training, you will have great fun amongst the stunning scenery. It can be booked as part of the Coastal Challenge offsite activity day.
