Ceredigion-based Treberfedd farm near Lampeter has been selected as a winner of a prestigious 2014 Soil Association Organic Award.
The farm’s holiday cottages and "hobbit houses" have been selected the winner of the ‘best organic places to stay’ category. Out of 12 awards winners Treberfedd Farm was the only business from Wales to pick up an award.
The Organic Award for Treberfedd Farm comes as a welcome boost for the business just as the new luxury ‘Hobbit Houses’ on the farm are unveiled to guests this Autumn.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming holiday makers to our new hobbit houses in 2015. Winning the award will definitely help us attract more visitors to this part of Ceredigion. The hobbit houses are completely original eco-houses with grass roofs and a stunning view down the valley – it will be lovely to see people enjoying an organic hobbit holiday on the farm!” said Jack Cockburn, owner of Treberfedd Farm.
Treberfedd Farm, at Dihweyd near Lampeter, is a 120-acre grassland farm producing organic beef and lamb. Guests at Treberfedd Farm have a choice to stay in a 17th century Welsh farmhouse complete with straw thatched roof and original wall paintings, converted traditional barns or two brand new luxury hobbit houses located in the farm’s organic meadows.
Treberfedd also has a conference venue which provides organic catering to groups and businesses. The facility is used for meetings, workshops and residential courses all year round.
