According to the Rough Guide, our farm is situated where the Gower Peninsula saves the best for last. Situated at the western tip, looking down from where we are you can see the great curve of white sand stretching into the distance that is Rhossili Bay. Despite being known as one of Britain’s finest surfing beaches, this dazzling coastline is vast enough to absorb the summer crowds.
There are two generations of Taylors on the farm, well three actually if you include Joseph who is still farming at the age of 93. You are most likely to be greeted by Ellen and Andrew but Amy, Ross and Robert will also be helping out. The family has farmed in the area since 1840, mainly sheep and arable.
We farm 175 acres stretched out across the village, mainly sheep, oats and barley. Lambing takes place from March to May so there are bound to be orphans to feed come the spring. You will also come across cattle and horses on the common land all around, where farmers still have ancient rights to graze their animals. Given the large number of sheep about, we only allow dogs on site between July and September when they are being pastured away from the farm-house.
The Feather Down tents are across two fields, including an old orchard, close by the farm-house. The views stretch back across the Gower taking in scattered hamlets and rocky outcrops. Most holiday accommodation in these parts is in small cottages so our six person tents should be a godsend for families who fancy trying out this part of the world for their holidays.
Whatever your choice of leisure pursuit, we doubt you will find a more stunningly situated Feather Down farm with so much to see and do.
