Pop On Your Wellie Bobs

Published on 2022-01-28 / By Hammy@Trefeddian

Half term is coming and you’re probably wondering how to keep the whole family entertained while you stay. Well, look no further - we’ve got it covered.

Of course, we have to tell you about our usual favourites - the wonderful Talyllyn Railway (don’t forget, you get 20% off if you stay with us), the enchanting Corris Craft Centre (complete with gin distillery to keep Mums and Dads sane) and Bounce Below (for the more adventurous).

But why not pop on your wellie bobs and embrace some of the beautiful and enchanting places that surround the Trefeddian? Simply breathe in that fresh air and have a good, old fashioned explore. And if it’s raining, no worries - locally, we call it a natural spa. It will make you feel more alive and energised than you have in a long while - just make sure you wrap up warm.

Here are our three favourite places to get wet - correction - explore in the winter.

1. Dolgoch Falls

Dolgoch Falls are the closest waterfalls to the hotel. Just a short drive away and spectacular any time of the year (especially if you have the energy to climb to the top), the river Dolgoch forms a series of waterfalls which cascade down a beautiful, rocky ravine to a deep pool below. The falls are impressive, particularly if the weather is wet - shelter under the trees or in the cave and watch the water thunder down.

Discover hidden caves and secret paths.

2. Bwlch Nant Yr Arian

Stunning views of Cardigan Bay and the Cambrian Mountains can be seen along the multitude of woodland trails. An astonishing 150 Red Kites swoop down at feeding time, so be sure to plan your visit to take in this magnificent sight.

Keep your eye out for a lovely gift shop, explorer back packs and fabulous children’s play areas.

3. Ynysmaengwyn

Explore enchanting Ynysmaengwyn. Meander through breathtaking and beautiful woodlands to the delightful River Dysynni. Pass tumbled down remains of the once grand estate and the tranquil walled garden - always warm whatever the weather.  

Look out for an ancient dove cote, fairy garden and bug hotel.

Don’t forget, you can order a packed lunch for your day out, and if you get really soggy, you can also make use of our drying room.
