Activity Weekends

At Clyne Farm Centre we are renowned for giving our guests an exciting and challenging but achievable activity mix. If you're planning a weekend to remember, or just a group looking for adventure, then Clyne Farm Centre could be just the kind of challenging yet relaxing experience you've been looking for!

For our Big Weekend you can choose from our range of activities including archery, indoor climbing, gorge walking, rock hopping, climbing, abseiling, and raft building. Countless people have taken part in this classic activity weekend since it was developed by us in the late 1980s.

Our Stag and Hen Weekends follow a similar pattern but are geared towards the hunt for Roberotic - Man of the Future - a strange tale that could take you to some spectacular locations on Gower and beyond.

Our Big Bushcraft Weekend give you a chance to learn bushcraft techniques. It is a perfect programme for school and youth groups, stag and hen groups and individuals who want to learn how to live off the land and in the process find out a lot about themselves and their fellow participants.

Whether you are an experienced rider or a complete beginner, our Riding Weekends are a wonderful opportunity to experience looking after your own horse or pony whilst developing your equestrian skills.
