Lord Mayor design boost
The conversion of The Dairy, Stables Cottage and Hayloft were featured just before Christmas in the Lord Mayor of Swansea Design Awards.
In 1990 the complex won the main award and this time around the balconies built from green oak from our own woodland got an honourable mention.
This was recognition for all the hard work of Dafydd Davies-Hughes and his team of craftsmen.
Early Autumn holiday ideas
Why not come:
* when Swansea Rugby Club are at home in the Cup or Welsh-Scottish League
* to see a play at the Grand Theatre, Taliesin Theatre or Swansea Festival
* to visit the National Botanical Gardens or Aberglasney House
* to walk the Gower coastal path
Explore Clyne Woods
Now we have started our land management of the woods we are opening them up to walking and exploring. Eventually there will be rides and a cross country course through areas which have been neglected for the past 150 years.
We also have plans to move the stable block to the area of the new all weather manege and this will be built from timber harvested from the woods

Stable news
Adopt a Pony continues to be the most popular day for visiting children. We suspect its even better liked by parents who can have a day away without them!

Challenge Valley on TV
Challenge Valley continues to receive television coverage befitting the world’s muddiest assault course. 
The latest place that it has been spotted is on You’ve Been Framed where it now seems to be a regular feature.
In November a film crew from an internet production company covered many of our on-site activities. It just happened to be the only day of the year when it rained!!!!(Honest!)
World travellers
Both Sarah (opposite pictured at Heathrow Airport) and Suzanne are off on world tours. Sarah who has run the office for the past eighteen months is following in her brother’s footsteps to Australia and beyond while Suzanne who has instructed at the Centre for three years is taking time out to discover Asia.

Sarah's latest adventure was getting tickets for New Zealand v Australia rugby match at Dunedin - if you see the reports she's the one in the Welsh flag! 


The BIG Weekend
The Big Weekend is a packaged weekend break which is ideal for a group of friends, families, stag and hen parties. 
You can mix our popular activities like abseiling and Challenge Valley with good food and nights out which usually is a sample of the pubs on the famed Mumbles Mile!
Leaflet available 
Surf's UP!!                                 

This year we've added surfing instruction to our activity programmes. This givesthe opportunity of enjoying the delights of Gower from a new angle (usually upside down if your surfing is anything like mine!).

Taking a power boat trip along the coast is another option particularly for stunning and unusual views of Worm's Head. back to top

Clyne Farm on Real Radio 

Geoff Haden was the guest on Real Radio's Real Business Show on the last Sunday of April. Geoff (pictured right with Binda and fellow guest Jane Manuel) discussed the current tourism situation and management training courses at Clyne Farm Centre on the station (105-106FM) which covers South Wales.

Honour for Private Eye man?
Ian Hislop the Mumbles born editor of Private Eye who spent one edition of Have I Got News for You protesting that he is not Welsh should be asked to become a Freeman of Mumbles says Clyne Farm’s legendary celeb watcher Harvey Grimble.
Explained Mr Grimble “As one of the most powerful men in the country Mr Hislop should respect his roots and loosen up a bit!”
We’ll let you know if he replies to our e-mail. OK!

Clyne Chapel
Clyne Chapel On the edge of the beautiful Clyne Gardens - worth a visit at any time of the year followed by a walk along the seafront.

Clyne Gardens in May are well worth a visit - probably the best collection of rhododendrons and azaleas in the country.

John on Sparky John Rides English Style!

John Stansfield from Seattle, Wa. enjoys a ride on Sparky. The photograph, taken on the way to Clyne Woods, shows stable assistant Lara Edwards leading John. The nine year old spent three days on activities at Clyne Farm and while here stayed with a host family in Killay.

Clyne Farm's Background

Situated on the Gower Peninsula, Britain's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Clyne Farm Centre is located on one of the seven hills overlooking the majestic sweep of Swansea Bay with the North Devon Coastline on its horizon. With Clyne Valley Country Park and Clyne Golf Club framing its borders, the Centre has easy access to Swansea, the old fishing village of Mumbles and its pier, together with Gower's spectacular and beautiful beaches.
Swansea offers all the features of a modern city with many wet weather attractions including a large leisure Centre, museums, ten-pin bowling and cinemas. Throughout the year there are many festivals and special events including the Dylan Thomas Festival and the Gower Festival in July and August. The world renowned Swansea Festival is in October and there are live productions at the Grand Theatre every week.
Clyne Farm Centre was once the Home Farm for the Clyne Castle Estate. Out-buildings dating back 200 years have been sympathetically restored and converted with comfortable accommodation with modern conveniences. The Centre has something to offer every member of the family - from gentle strolls, nature trails or horse riding, to more adventurous activities such as indoor climbing, archery and an assault course believed to be the muddiest in the world!
Unsupervised nature trails and the use of nearby community tennis courts are offered free of charge to visitors. A morning multi-activity 'taster' programme is also offered, free of charge, as part of a week long stay at the Centre. This programme is designed to encourage everyone to participate in activities they may not have tried before. There is a children's play area, pool table and table tennis. Cycle, surfboard and tennis racket hire is also available. 
Real favourites are 'Adopt A Pony' days based at the Centre's stables. These are supervised activity days in which children (and adults) learn about riding and horse care. Off site activities available, range from abseiling to windsurfing with everything else in between! For the adventurous, popular activities include gorge walking, rock hopping and canoeing, while others might like to sample fishing in either the sea, lakes or rivers, including a small lake on site. The Centre has developed a collection of walks and rides on the Gower Peninsula which cater for all standards and interests with everything from a gentle stroll along tarmac surfaced cliff paths to day long expeditions.
