Description

Humble by Nature’s home is a working farm and rural skills centre owned by broadcaster Kate Humble, based in Penallt just outside Monmouth in the Wye Valley. 

Come to the farm and learn something new, whether you have your heart set on a smallholding or just fancy a day trying something a little bit different we'll have the course for you.

We have a range of courses covering:

  • Smallholding and animal husbandry - sheep, pigs, sustainable bee-keeping
  • Rural skills- hedge laying, dry stone walling, edible garden design
  • Crafts - willow weaving, flower arranging, beeswax soap & balms
  • Artisan food - charcuterie, foraging, bread making

If you want to combine a stay in the area with a course, we have a variety of accommodation on the farm, including The Piggery, a family friendly cottage; the Humble Hideaway, the off-grid shepherd's hut; and the Hayloft, a studio flat. Live availability and online booking is available. Or there are plenty of B&Bs, self-catering and camping nearby.

Humble by Nature farm is the perfect venue to arrange a bespoke event or corporate away day. We can create unique tailor-made days and private dining events for groups of 8 people and up. Whether it’s team building, a management away-day or private dining, we’ve got the facilities to suit you.  We have a range of options that can be tailored to suit your specific needs: from foraging to sausage making; planting trees, making chocolates; or simply spending a day being a farmer.

We welcome visits from schools to look around the farm. Farmer Tim will show the children around the farm and take them to meet the animals. If you come in the Spring they'll even get to bottle feed the lambs!

From the North, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye & M50

Take the A40 Southbound exiting at Monmouth, follow signposts to the B4293 directing you through two left turns towards Trellech/ Chepstow. After the series of bends the road straightens and at the top of the hill, with views on your right, take the first left hand turn, signposted towards Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

From the east, Bristol & the M4

Exiting the M4 towards Chepstow and the Old Severn Crossing, follow signposts along the A466 to Chepstow Racecourse. At the Racecourse take the first exit at the roundabout signposted B4293 to Devauden. Continue along this road passing through Devauden, Llanishen and Trelleck. Almost 3 miles after Trellech, with magnificent views on your left, take a sharp right signposted Penallt.
