Local food experiences

With the option of high-end wild gourmet evenings under the stars using locally sourced Welsh produce or foraged wild foods, we can help you rediscover primitive butchery and culinary skills, give you a game cookery lesson or just give you some tips on the best local food markets, restaurants and pubs.

Historical and educational experiences

We use our own on-site Iron Age hill fort and local storytellers who bring our locality's unique and tremendously important position in local history and legend to life. Did you know? Corwen was the home of the last Prince of Wales, Owain Glyndwr, who died in 1416.
