About

Springdale Farm is a working farm and nature reserve whose tenants use traditional wildlife-friendly farming practices. It's a 45 hectare site with a circular walk around the reserve taking in pasture fields, hay meadows and ancient woodlands. There's also spectacular views down over the River Usk to enjoy.

In the spring look out for willow warblers and chiffchaffs, plus bluebells and ramsons. In summer the meadow is alive with colour, including the rare blue-eyed grass, becoming a haven for butterflies and bees.
