DESCRIPTION

The Amelia Trust is a working farm set on 160 acres of countryside in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan. Visitors are invited to see, hear and smell a working farm, which is providing an alternative education for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people working with skilled staff and volunteers.

The many other people that make up the daily community on the farm include volunteers, adults with learning difficulties on work placements and members of the public enjoying the wonders of nature which offer a calming and therapeutic environment. It is a fantastic recipe that makes the Amelia Trust Farm an amazing place to be.

Come and meet the animals, explore our woodland trails and enjoy some home made cake in the Farm Kitchen.

We don't charge for entry we just ask for a £2 donation for car parking.

From Cardiff/Culverhouse Cross

Follow the A48 towards Cowbridge – the road from Culverhouse Cross goes up the hill between Marks and Spencer and McDonalds. You’ll go through a village called St. Nicholas, as you leave the village you’ll see a golf course on the right and then a turning to the left signposted for Cardiff Airport. Take this left turn (Five Mile Lane, A4226) and we are on the right after approx 1 miles. As you go into the 40mph zone, we are at the top of the hill.

From Bridgend/Cowbridge

Follow the A48 towards Cardiff. You’ll go through a village called Bonvilston, as you leave the village there is a right turn filter lane signposted for Cardiff Airport. Take this right turn (Five Mile Lane, A4226) and we are on the right after approx 1 miles. As you go into the 40mph zone, we are at the top of the hill.

From Penarth/Barry

Follow Port Road East and then Port Road West (you’ll pass a fire station on your right) until you come to a roundabout with a petrol station (Co-operative) on the left hand side. Take the third exit (Five Mile Lane, A4226) signposted Duffryn and follow this road for approx 3 miles. The farm is the second drive on the left hand side AFTER the Walterston turning. If you get as far as the National Speed Limit signs, you’ve gone too far.
