- Things to do in wales to fill a week (family / non-bike / bike)
Sorry this is a bit open-ended…
I have the bank holiday week off work and nothing to fill it with. Weather looks like it might be good so the missus and I are thinking about doing a camping tour of wales with our 2 boys (4 and 7) Probably looking to move between 3/4 bases over the course of the week.
My only experience of wales is MTB based really, around the Snowdonia area (the mountains, close by trail centres like CYB, pen mach etc) and also trail centres in the south – afan / cwymcarn.
So, what have I been missing out on? Been doing some internet trawling and pembrokshire coast + brecon beacons look worth a visit – any specific recommendations for family-type things to do (beaches, walks etc) in these areas?
Any other stuff outside of beacons / pembrokeshire that should go high on the list?
Also any camp site recommendations would be good too (prefer wild feeling sites with minimal facilities and not regimented caravan affairs)
P.s. I might be able to accidentally sneak the bike in – other than the trail centres I mentioned above, are there any other trail centres worth spendng a morning visiting while I am around and about? WOuld love to ride natural too, but time to plan may be tight, unless someone can recommend a specific route?Posted 4 years agochvckMemberRichPenny wrote:
Red Kite feeding centre in Llandeusant. Lovely drive to get there and then a wonderful experience.
Carreg Cennen castle.
Along those lines nant-y-arian has loads of red kites and they also do feeding show things. You could certainly fit in an “accidental” bike ride there!Posted 4 years agotheragMember
S.wales. Big pit, good half day out & worth a visit. Free entry.
Monkey sanctuary. Fab half day, about £7 entry per vehicle.
W.Wales Oakwood park. Brilliant/expensive day out. £65 family.
Too many castles to chose from, every few miles in Pembrokeshire.
Folly farm great day out.
Heatherton, haven’t been yet.
So many nice beaches around Pembrokeshire, boat trip from Tenby to the monks island that I can’t think of its name.
I’ve stayed on a campsite near Carew, Pembrokeshire. They’re only allowed 5 caravans plus a few tents. Their facilities 1 toilet, 1 hand basin, elec hook up and that’s it, but the views are amazing and we always end up going back and have regularly been the only ones there apart from the cows & pigs. It’s on deer park lane.Posted 4 years ago
