For every guest staying at Wern-Y-Cwm we are planting a tree around the farm. If you walk down below the farmhouse you will find our little wood where deciduous hardwood trees are being planted 2m apart. The plantation includes Rowan, Downier Birch, Field Maple, Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Oak, Horse Chestnut and of course Alder. We plant the smaller trees along the edges of the wood and rising up to the taller ones in the middle. This valley used to be covered in forest and we are doing our little bit to return Wern-Y-Cwm to its former ecological balance. If you look carefully in the day or night you are likely to see or hear rabbits, hedgehogs, squirrels, foxes, hares, field mice, voles, frogs, newts, bats and many more little wild mammals. From time to time we see Fallow Deer running across the lawn. You are also likely to meet our friendly Peahen Gertrude and the cats Sammy and Bubbles.
