Fun for the Family

If you can tear yourselves away from one of the nearby beaches, castles or gardens you may wish to visit the following (especially on a wet day):

Oakwood   www.oakwood-leisure.com
Around 45 minutes away is Oakwood, Wales' largest theme park. It has all the rides you would expect including Megaphobia - the 900 m roller coaster, 'Vertigo', 'Bounce', the 'Voodoo Mansion', and 'Snake River falls' for the thrill-seeker, Go-karts, boating lake, bob sleigh etc for the family and kiddie coaster, Ferris Wheel, Carousel etc for the smaller members of the family. Oakwood also has special events such as firework displays and after dark specials during the holiday season.

Folly Farm   www.folly-farm.co.uk
A firm favourite with our son Alfie, Folly Farm (approx 40 mins) is excellent value for money whether the weather is good or bad. There are masses of animals, tractor rides, go carts, indoor and outdoor adventure playgrounds, an old fashioned fun fair with proper carousel, etc. There are special shows introducing the animals, circus workshops and much more. You can take your own picnic or eat at the restaurants or burger bars there.

Heatherton   www.heatherton.co.uk
The emphasis is on country sports at this park (approx 40 mins away) which is 2 miles outside Tenby. It is set in 200 acres and includes go-karting, 18 hole pitch and putt, laser clay pigeon shooting, indoor adventure playground, archery, bumper boat racing lake, air pistol range, face painting and so on. This park definitely holds something for all members of the family.

National Showcaves Centre for Wales at Dan-yr-Ogof   www.showcaves.co.uk
There are three amazing caves to be discovered, all fantastically lit to give the visitor a real sense of history and mystery. There is also a dinosaur park, Shire horse centre and Victorian Farm to explore. Another great day out for all ages. Approx 45 mins away.

The Gwili Steam Railway   www.gwili-railway.co.uk
Just outside Carmarthen is Gwili Railway, a full size steam railway (approx 20 mins). It runs through the beautiful Gwili Valley and allows passengers off to picnic by the river or walk in the woods. There are special events held on the railway throughout the year including a day out with Thomas the Tank Engine, Teddy Bear's Picnic days and music nights in summer.
