Enjoy Half Term in the Cambrian Mountains

Are you currently scrambling around frantically to try and seek some entertaining events and activities to keep your kids entertained this February half term? Lucky for you, we’ve put together the best that the Cambrian Mountains has to offer…

.
Visit the National Cycle Collection
With cycling growing ever more popular with families, not to mention the obvious health benefits, kids will love getting to take a ride through cycling history to find out how bikes have evolved from penny farthings to state-of-the-art racing bikes! Visitors will find over 200 different bikes, plus artworks, posters and other exhibits. You could always take your own bikes and head out into the Elan Valley afterwards, maybe?
.
Take a hike with Twm’s Treks
The Cambrian Mountains is a walker’s paradise, and kids will love getting to trek along with Twm Sion Cati, Wales’ very own Robin Hood, as he leads them through the stunning landscape. They’re currently running ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland in Wales’ walks every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, most of which are great for kids.

Go wild with Cambrian Safaris
Imagine yourself exploring a wild and deserted terrain from the comfort of a Landrover, peering out through the glass in silence, camera at the ready, desperate to catch a glimpse of a rare and fascinating species. Where are you? Kenya? Costa Rica? Actually you’re in Wales. The Cambrian Mountains, to be more precise. Cambrian Safaris will lead you and the family through this beautiful destination from the comfort of your 4×4.

From walking and cycling to Ranger tours, the Elan Valley visitor centre is a one-stop shop for outdoor fun in the Cambrian Mountains this half term. They’re also going to be a hosting a ‘Build your own nest box’ event on Saturday the 22nd of February in which families can work together to create a nest box out of Elan Valley timber.

Kids will love being able to follow the wool-making process from Fleece to Fabric as well as visiting the sympathetically restored listed mill buildings. There you can see Historic Machinery and brand new features such as the glass roofed courtyard. There’s also a raised walkway so you can watch textile production at Melin Teifi Mill.
