The traditional Welsh farm in Ceredigion is cared for by National Trust Cymru and is home to a variety of Welsh breeds.

Visitors can see the new additions along with other animals, including Welsh cobs and pigs, horses, geese and chickens, on the farmyard at Llanerchaeron over the four-day Easter weekend.

The elegant Georgian villa, redbrick walled garden, ornamental lake, Geler Jones collection, woodland and parkland is open every day during the schools holidays, or Wednesday to Sunday generally.
