5 Things to do in South West Wales

This week I am joined by Jenna from Then There Were Three. She is sharing 5 things to do in South West Wales, which is where she lives with her husband and two young daughters.

Somewhere Free: Rhossili

I highly recommend visiting Rhossili, one of the National Heritage sites, especially on a sunny day. The coastline is breath-taking, and the small shops and cafes are perfect stop offs. If you are an avid walker, then there are numerous walks to keep you going, along with beautiful beaches to explore. In the summer, Rhossili is also home to over 400,000 sunflowers near Wormshead; I went this year and they were amazing! A small parking fee would be charged to visit, but if you pack yourself a picnic, this would make a fantastic free trip.

Somewhere For The Whole Day: Folly Farm

If you have children and want a fantastic day out, I cannot recommend Folly Farm enough! We visit at least four times a year and are considering purchasing an annual pass for the family. Folly Farm isn’t just a farm, it’s a farm, zoo, and fairground all rolled into one! There is definitely something for everyone and you can easily spend a day here.

Animals range from goats, pigs, and rabbits, to lions, giraffes, and red pandas. If it’s raining, the vintage fairground and giant play area will certainly keep the kids entertained! I’ve been heading here since I was a child and in recent years Folly Farm has been given the go ahead to build a holiday village too, something of which I cannot wait for!

Somewhere Outdoors: Llanelli Wetland Centre

This one is easy for me and that is Llanelli Wetland Centre; we regularly visit as we were kindly given a membership by family last year for Florrie’s birthday. There is so much to see and do here, especially for the children during half term, although they do have activities on during term time for smaller children too.  The wetland centre is spread out over 450 acres and there is always something to see. They are even holding a Family Bat Walk this month which I may take the girls to!

Somewhere To Eat: Seagers

Seagars Restaurants are definitely my favourite place to visit for food in South West Wales, whether it’s lunch or tea time. They have three locations and each of them serve the most amazing food! They are steak restaurants and are all family run, something of which I love even more. The atmosphere in each restaurant is lovely and the staff are always there to greet you with a smile. I have eaten in each of their restaurants on more than one occasion and cannot recommend enough.

Somewhere For A Rainy Day: Blue Lagoon Water Park

If the Welsh weather is getting you down, I definitely recommend a visit to Blue Lagoon Water Park in Pembrokeshire. We have visited a few times now, especially when we have been staying in the adjoining Bluestone Resort. Blue Lagoon caters for swimmers of all ages, from a separate shallow area for babies and toddlers, flumes and a wave pool for the more daring, to an outdoor spa pool and lazy river for anyone who just wants to relax in the water. Blue Lagoon is definitely worth a visit, especially if you are staying nearby.
