Going away for the weekend? Here are a few ideas to think of when going away with children and it won’t break the bank. We love to do things that cost minimal money, especially discovering new places to visit, we love adventures! As we like to visit North Wales i’ll be talking about certain places in this area to visit!
Why not go for a family walk along the beach, take a picnic, blanket and a flask of tea and take in the surroundings. Taking a baby carrier is also a brilliant idea if you don’t fancy lugging your pushchair along the sand. When the weather is so nice what is better than sitting on the beach with the warm sun on your skin listening to the crashing of waves. We’ve just returned from our beach walk, the pushchair we used was brilliant on the sand. Jane Epic, the wheels glided through the sand and the hood was extended enough to keep the sun off him.
If the weather isn’t so brilliant (overcast and cold, preferably not when its raining) why not go for a small walk around the hills. There are so fantastic walks around North Wales and there is even a book that tells you what routes are pushchair friendly and are suitable for small children. Be sure to take the appropriate footwear and essentials with you when going for walks. A baby carrier is also a great idea providing good weather.
Another fun thing to do with children that won’t cost much is taking them to a wildlife park, we have been the Borth Zoo a number of times and we always have a fantastic day. They do a group booking of 2 adults and 2 children for £30, under 3’s go free and it is pushchair/wheelchair friendly. Why not take yourselves a picnic with you in the car for you and your family. Directions to north zoo can be found on the website in the above link.
A free, educational experience at the National Slate Museum. Here you can learn about the welsh slate industry and have a walk around the old buildings. They hold talks and demonstrations which are designed to give you an insight into the slate industry. Its a brilliant day out for all of the family. On certain days exhibitions are held so be sure to check the website before visiting.
Why not become a member of the national trust for £120 a year (£10 a month) for 2 adults up to 10 of their children/grandchildren plus under 5’s go free. It’s definitely worth a go if you’re a nature lover. There are a number of places to visit in North Wales including Llanbedrog beach, Powis Castle and Bodnant Garden. There are also a range of mountain/hill walks but be sure to check the website before hand to see if they are pushchair friendly or are suitable for children.
Of an evening we tend to go down to the beach with a fire pit, marshmallows, blankets and a flask of tea and watch the sunset. A magical moment after having fantastic, adventurous day out together.
