Fforest Full Description
fforest Farm is the perfect location for a relaxed, informal, weekend-long celebration with family and friends. The 200 acres of fforest farm are part of an area of unspoilt natural beauty, wrapped in woods, wildlife and wonder. The farm is flanked on one side by the Teifi Marshes nature reserve and on the other, Cilgerran gorge, through which the magnificent river Teifi flows down to our local town of Cardigan and the Irish sea beyond. fforest Farm has been created as a place to enjoy the simplicity, pleasures and beauty of outdoor living in an outstanding natural environment, with its private tiny stone pub, large communal firepit and secret woodland sauna and a choice of event spaces from the giant hat tipi and garden pavilion to dining and party barns. fforest is located in north Pembrokeshire minutes from the Cardigan Bay Coast. The venue consists of a variety of indoor and outdoor locations, as well as on-site serviced accommodation for 130+ ranging from a grand Georgian 5 bed, 5 bathroom farmhouse to 20ft diameter geodesic domes (guests pay separately for their accommodation). The site also features a large communal firepit, a cedar barrel sauna and is adjacent to the River Teifi, perfect for some pre-breakfast wild swimming. fforest holds a licence for intimate civil ceremonies in our lodge, Bwthyn pub or garden pavilion. You can also have your ceremony in our giant hat tipi or outdoors in our ancient steep walled quarry, just popping inside to sign the register. Our catering style is relaxed, full of colour and flavour, making the best of seasonal, local and home-grown produce. Please contact us for more information.

"The most magical venue"
fforest is the most magical venue, the beauty of it shines throughout the weekend and we felt so lucky to be able to get married at fforest with our loved ones. The whole process of planning the wedding to the day itself was such a joy and we can't thank everyone involved enough.

"The day ran perfectly"
From the minute we found Fforest and decided that it would be the place we wanted to get married, the team were super helpful and fantastic in supporting us through the journey of planning our weekend, showing us around the venue on multiple occasions, and keeping in touch throughout the process. The day ran perfectly, the staff were incredibly attentive, any request we had was answered and delivered on, and at no point were we made to feel like we were asking too much.

"The best decision we made"
The best decision we made when planning our wedding was to have it at fforest. From start to finish of the planning process the fforest team were amazing and worked with us to create an event that was entirely unique to us. Fforest is an amazing place and having it to ourselves with your friends and family for a whole weekend was so special. Every single member of the fforest team went above and beyond to create our dream wedding and to make our friends and family feel at home for that weekend.

It's a photographers dream
I think I've shot around 5 weddings here and I still haven't made use of every beautiful backdrop it is an absolute dream. The last wedding I shot here took place outdoors in the little quarry (no, it's way nicer than it sounds - just look at the picture!) and was probably the most unique and picturesque ceremony I've ever shot. While I'm here I've got to shout out the brilliant staff and the outstanding food that I was lucky enough to sample at my last job. Finally, the couples...what is it about Fforest couples...they're all such ridiculously nice people!

"Passed all of our wildest expectations"
The Fforest grounds are insanely stunning, immaculately kept and full of character. The food was exceptionally delicious, and the staff were on hand from the very start of the planning process to ensure that our vision was not only achieved, but passed all of our wildest expectations. Thank you all for making our wedding weekend the most magical and wonderful of our lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Fforest?

The most memorable weddings are always the ones that showcase the couple's personalities. If you are colourful, loud, creative, musical, nature-loving, athletic, then ensure that you incorporate something that reflects this into the celebrations. We are constantly inspired by the creativity of our couples, and we do embrace different! Do it your way and you can't go wrong.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't sweat the small stuff. Detail is important, but if something doesn't go to plan, unless you've publicised it in advance, chances are no-one will notice. The most important things are a great atmosphere, great food and drink and a happy relaxed couple surrounded by friends and family.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Bespoke enamel mugs, beautifully designed, well made, so that everyone could have a brew the morning after the wedding at the communal tea station with their special souvenir mugs. We love functional favours!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The testimonials. They just prove that 14 years of designing, building, researching, decorating, tasting, growing and hard slog has all been worth it.
