What visitors are saying

  • Bryngarw House & Country Park

    What a hidden gem! Ample parking, lots to explore. Loved the pagoda shelter which was a great space to eat our picnic and keep us dry. We made a big flask of “Starry curried soup” from the Picnic Guide which was ideal for a fresh March day. The children loved doing the “Minefield – A challenge of trust” activity from the Woodland ideas, once the rain showers stopped. Lots of branches and fallen leaves to collect to set up the pathway and used my scarf for a blindfold. This was the first time we’d been to this venue and there was so much to do, we didn’t get round to doing the “Who Done it?” but have promised we will go back during the Easter holidays.

  • Chepstow Castle

    Decided to give this a go on a dull, rainy day when the youngsters were getting stir crazy. Large carpark right by castle with toilets and tourist information centre on the spot. Had a car picnic first, then explored the castle and grounds. Children went into the tourist information centre afterwards and picked up leaflets on castles all over the place as they’ve got the castle bug.

  • Pembrey Country Park

    Fantastic day out – the teenagers loved the dry ski slope and we treated them to a session there for a birthday treat. Little ones preferred the adventure playground where we all became knights in shining armour and princesses. Don’t forget to pack buckets and spades as there’s an 8 mile stretch of beach which is great for sandcastle building, a game or rounders or a campfire (lots of driftwood around when we were there).

Support Care

This short film is about becoming a support foster carer. It was filmed at a community farm in Wales and features carers, parents and children talking about the difference support care makes. The film shows children enjoying low and no cost activities both indoors and outdoors including seed planting, animal handling, art and craft, film-making, story-telling and making their own pizzas. It also features the bibliotherapy library and conversations with staff from The Fostering Network Wales
