Day Trips  

Brecon Beacons

One of our favourite parts of Wales - worth spending a weekend if you have the time.  If not, make sure you give yourself a full day as there are so many wonderful walks in the area.  One of our favourites leads you to a waterfall, where you can actually sit in the plunge pool directly below it, or slide along the rocky bottom of the river downstream.  The children will absolutely love the experience - make sure you take a change of clothes or swimming trunks!

The Brecon Canal is also worth visiting as is Brecon itself.


Gower Peninsula

You will find some of the most spectacular beaches in the UK Rhossili Bayhere. Favourites of ours include Three Cliffs Bay (which has limited parking and is a bit of a walk from the road), Rhossilli - for the walks and the views (see photo on right) and Oxwich Bay, which is more suitable for families than the previous two. There Worms Headare lovely views of Three Cliffs Bay from Oxwich Bay and there is ample parking, toilets and refreshments. Port Eynon is not one of our favourites, but  is a very popular beach on the peninsula, with more shops and facilities than the others.

A photo of Three Cliffs Bay can be seen in the Caravanning page.
