What you'll do

Immerse yourself in the natural landscape like never before, as you explore the stunning coastline and learn to forage for edibles, before enjoying an incredible meal made with the freshest possible local ingredients.

You’ll meet at a prearranged point with your guide Matt, who will start the day by leading you to the shoreline, characterised by wild beaches and dramatic cliffs, to search for the edibles that hide in rock pools and along the strandlines of the beach.

Reconnect with a way of life that our ancestors would have known in the past, as you learn about and search for the ingredients you would never have thought of in the past. This is a wonderful way to appreciate the ecosystems that surround us, as well as the delicate balance that exists within them that must be protected by living with them in a sustainable, responsible way.

After exploring the coast, head inland up a local estuary to gather edible plants, before stopping for a break, some lunch, and a cup of tea.

For most of the afternoon, you will explore the woods and the hedgerows that conceal edible fungi, and discover your appreciation for the natural landscape changing as you uncover the rich variety of life that it supports.

After a wholesome day collecting fresh ingredients from this corner of Pembrokeshire, you’ll head back for dinner where your spoils will be paired with wonderful local ingredients, for a totally unique dining experience.

Prepared and served by Matt Powell, who has experience in some of the best Michelin starred establishments in the UK and Europe, expect dishes that have real meaning, a real sense of place, and that are, of course, of the highest quality.
