WELCOME TO DROVERS REST
Cool Farm Stays and Gatherings in the Sticks
Come Free-range with us..at Drovers Rest
For the Best Farm Holiday in the Land! Tucked away in the Welsh Hills, on the border of Herefordshire and Wales, lies our beautiful 16th century Organic Farm. Known for our Luxurious ‘Cool Farm Stays and Gatherings in the Sticks’ and our passion for food grown the proper way. Drovers is a relaxed hands on kinda place. So anything you can imagine of a farm is something you can get involved with.
We pride our farm holidays on being much more than just posh award winning accommodation. Thats why it’s all about the experience you have! We believe in the magic that happens when people gather. That’s why a big part of what we do here at Drovers, is gather people. Around our farm activities, our dinner table, camp fires, walking the old Drovers paths and our Epic Events and Workshops. Once you’ve experienced our convivial gatherings, you’ll never want to leave!
Oh and on your farm holiday here with us, you’ll feel a definite African type of vibe going on. From the Lush Safari Tents and Country Cottages, to the Guinea Fowls roaming the land. From the menus and our food cooked outdoors on open fires to the table styling and warm African hospitality. Having grown up in Africa, the beat of the African drum still lives strongly in our hearts and we thought a touch of Africa in the Welsh hills would be kinda nice! Furry friends are welcome too (they need a farm holiday too!). We love dogs and have been said to be the most dog friendly place EVER!
Located at the foothills of the Black Mountains, off the beaten track within stones throw to our village, the famous book-town Hay on wye, and the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park, means there is plenty to do in the area if you can tear yourself away from the farm.
We are super proud that our farm holidays have won the Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence 3 years in a row. The small rural business award with mentorship from Alistar Sawday, as well as the 2019 Staycation award for Best Glamping site in the UK!
Choose to stay in one of our beautiful stone holiday cottages.
Dotted around the farm. You may have to shoo the ducks, hens, guinea fowls and our pet sheep Petal away, as you make your way to your door. As featured in Country Home and Interiors Magazine, the cottages have been restored to the highest standards using local materials and craftsmanship. It’s where the Drovers used to stay, to rest and recharge, on their way, as they drove their stock down from the Welsh hills to the London markets.Discover More
Or choose to stay closer to nature and the great British outdoors.
In one of our Super Posh Safari Tents, African in looks and 100% Welsh in spirit! All have been sited to take advantage of the views and with privacy in mind. You will see how substantial they are when you arrive. Much more like canvas cottages rather than camping. With its posh hotel like features and private underfloor heated monsoon showers the term Glampotel (Glamping & Hotel) comes to mind!Discover More
Get Earthy and a little bit dirty on the Farm helping us as little or as much as you want!

See where your food comes from and how food looks and tastes that is grown the proper way.
