Papworth Trust

IMG_89322Set in the beautiful Welsh countryside Papworth Trust’s Kerry Farm provides a break tailored to your needs where family, friends and couples of all ages can relax and have fun together.

This unique holiday destination gives you the choice of how you spend your holiday.  Every day on the farm our team of family coaches can support you in a wide range of activities.  From spending time with our animals, arts and crafts, tai chi and a variety of games and more the choice is yours.

If you choose to use the farm as a base to explore rural Wales, our team have great local knowledge to help you make the most of your stay.  They can support you to identify places and activities to suit everyone.

Locally the village of Kerry is just a 5 minute drive away or a 30 minute walk. The farm is well known to the local community who will always make you feel welcome.feed a goat

Slightly further afield is the pretty market town of Newtown, which is just 5 miles away or a 10 minute car journey.  Here you will find a variety of shops and restaurants there is also a cinema, leisure centre and a selection of free museums, art galleries and a theatre.

Further afield you might like to visit the seaside resort of Aberystwyth if you want to spend some time beside the sea.

With a choice of cottages, and our new lodges  which are opening in 2016, we have somewhere to suit everyone. Kerry Farm’s accessible accommodation is sensitively designed so that it doesn’t feel medicalised.  Around the farm we’ve widened doors, removed steps and made sure our paths are paved.

What makes Kerry Farm unique is our team of family coaches, who are on hand to help support you and your family.  You may want some support for  a particular activity, the  chance to learn a new skill or maybe just to give yourself some time off to relax.

Back in March 2013, we were on Channel 4’s Secret Millions, featuring celebrity farmer Jimmy Doherty and our pilot project to provide supported breaks for disabled people and their families.  In August 2013 with support from the Big Lottery Fund Kerry Farm opened its doors.  Since the Duchess of Gloucester opened the farm over 180 families have stayed.
