Tours

Here at the Lammas Eco-village, we have run tours for 9 years. Education and inspiration are part of what we aim to provide during these tours.

When we started, we showed people the entire site. That was easy then, as there was little to see! It was over grazed sheep pasture, back in 2009.

Now, most smallholdings here boast several hand made eco buildings, as well as beautiful productive gardens. Therefore, tours are now more personal, offering an in depth walk around one eco-smallholding, with plenty of question answering, as well as looking at the Community Hub and the common areas.

What many people choose to do is come on a tour at each smallholding, on different days, as this gives an in depth view of the variety of approaches used. As with anyone, each smallholder has a different way of working, a different way of earning their livelihood and very different buildings. We suggest you have a look at the description before you choose which tour to attend. If there is no description or link we apologise, it may be that the person doing the tour hasn’t given us that information yet.

We ask for a donation of £6 for each adult. Some guides also charge for children.

All tours start at in the main Car Park by the Community Hub building. The postcode is SA34 0YD, but don’t follow sat nav up the Pont-y-Gafel track – go past it and up the Tir-y-Gafel / Lammas track.

TOUR LIST 2019

Please look through the tour dates to pick which one you are able to attend. Also have a look at the description to see what is offered, and what features there are at the smallholding you will be visiting on that day.

Unless you are a large group then you do not need to book your tour.

Please note – some tour guides only offer a basic tour, some offer refreshments, and some also offer the chance to purchase land based products and produce from the Hub Livelihood shop. Please ask the guide for that day if you aren’t sure.
