If you’re like us, the bitter winter weather won’t stop you getting out and having an adventure! If you’re heading to West Wales this winter, here’s a round-up of 10 things to do with your toddler come rain or shine:
Welly walks at Pemprey Country Park – Carmarthenshire
Wrap up warm and get ready to toddler though the grassland and woodland that covers this beautiful 520-acre park – ok, you might not make it around the whole place! There’s a miniature railway which they’re sure to love too.
Play knights at Cilgerran Castle National Trust – Pembrokeshire
A fascinating 13th-century fortress with an unusual two tower build – this historic ruin is great for pre-schoolers who’ve started their fascination with all things knights and dragons.
Return to the Iron Age at Castell Henllys – Pembrokeshire
While your toddlers may not appreciate the captivating history of this living museum, the Hill Village of Castell Henllys is a family favourite. Alongside the recreated roundhouses, the attraction is home to lots of wildlife like swallows, otters, and bats.
Wander the gardens at Aberglasney House – Carmarthenshire
Explore the magnificent gardens of Aberglasney House, as featured on the BBC series ‘A Garden Lost in Time’ which documented its restoration. There’s plenty of opportunity for children to run wild or smell the flowers, and a lovely Tearooms too.
Hop aboard the Gwili Railway – Near Carmarthenshire
Trains, there’s something irresistible about them to young children! Which is why the Gwili Railway is a brilliant stop off. A proper steam rail line with rides departing from Bronwydd Arms Station.
Adventure with the animals at Folly Farm Park and Zoo – Kilgetty
There’s so much to do at this family gem with farm and zoo – adventure playgrounds, pigs and ponies, giraffes and even rhinos! Folly Farm promises a whole day of fun including an unusual Vintage indoor fairground.
Make a splash in the ball pool at The PlayKing – Llanelli
Love it or hate it – soft play is a great way to safely let them burn off energy, and The PlayKing is a huge soft play centre suitable for everyone from babies to pre-teens. The under 5s areas has an interactive ball pool with juggler, lifter and shower, a tube slide, a wavy slide and climbing features too.
Ride the waves at the Blue Lagoon Waterpark – Narberth
Paddling at the beach is a bit nippy this time of year but little ones can get their splashing fun here instead – and big kids will love it too. The Blue Lagoon is well equipped for all the family, with a huge wave pool and 4 flume slides as well as a more relaxed lazy river.
Toddle through the tropics at Plantasia – Swansea
Explore the wonderful tropical world of Plantastia, an indoor filled with tropical plants and wildlife: cacti, pineapple plants, giant bamboos… bugs, monkeys, lizards – there’s plenty for them to see for the first time.
Get hands-on with history at Tenby Museum – Tenby
