Our Staff Experience Centre for Alternative Technology

After a drive through picturesque welsh country side, passing the shimmering Talyllyn lake, we arrived at the Centre for Alternative Technology – or CAT for short.

Our Staff Experience Talyllyn Railway

Myself & two of my daughters were lucky enough to have had the opportunity to experience a day out on the Talyllyn Railway. It was a soggy damp day in March but this didn’t spoil our enthusiasm!

Celebrating National Parks Week

This week we celebrate...

February Half Term

Rain, Rain…Don’t Go away, stay and play another day!

Adorn your rain coat and wellie bobs and splash in those puddles with a refreshing walk along the stunning Mawddach estuary. 

Springs Lambs

Spring has Sprung!

Enjoy the breath-taking scenery as you travel to The Trefeddian for your well-deserved spring break. The Daffodils are in full bloom and litter the verges like rays of sunlight, Lambs gleefully bounce in the fields.

Celebrating all things Welsh

It’s the time of year when we celebrate all things Welsh and there’s certainly a lot to rejoice!   We have a pretty amazing flag with a great big red dragon on it, the humble daffodil is our national flower which is pretty awesome and then we have simple traditions such as the giving of love spoons and most importantly singing hymns and arias whist watching the rugby.  

Shrove Tuesday

Have a Flippin' lovely day!

February Means Pancakes!!!

February signifies that winter is coming to an end. The Skies are clearing, warmer weather is on its way and buds are appearing on trees. 

It’s a time of quiet reflection and future planning and there’s no better place to ponder than in the tranquillity of Aberdyfi and the relaxing atmosphere of the Trefeddian. 

February Half Term

Things to do this half term

February can bring winter sunshine and frosty bright days or cold blustery showers where you need to wrap up warm. Whatever the weather, we hope these ideas will give you some suggestions to fill your day and create happy half-term memories for all ages.
