Snowdonia, Cefn Coed, Dolgellau, North Wales Foraging Courses.
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
ABOUT THE COURSE
Cefn Coed is a historical Welsh farm property with origins dating back to the 17th Century.
It is situated 4 miles from the picturesque market town of Dolgellau, in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, enjoying an idyllic setting in a sheltered valley of Ancient Oak Woodland (great for mushrooms!) where the magnificent Cader Idris rolls down into the Mawddach Estuary.
Surrounded by it’s own 75 acres of farmland and forests, Cefn Coed provides a stunning and rare variety of habitats for plants and mushrooms. We expect this to be a great all year round venue for both our Spring, Summer and Autumn foraging courses.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the vast grounds, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup or possibly some elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
The estate also offers fantastic camping and bunkhouse accommodation.
If you would like to make this course into a weekend away in this beautiful part of the country, then you can find out more about their accommodation options on their website here.
