Swing into the School Summer Holidays
Own the summer holidays with a visit to the Dramatic Heart of Wales. Here are three family focused itineraries to inspire your holiday plans this summer.
Valleys Outdoor Get Away
Immerse yourself in the heart of the South Wales countryside and embrace both the thrills and peace of the Dramatic Heart of Wales valleys.
Start your trip by making yourself at home at Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages which have plenty of room for the family and overlook beautiful scenery.
For your first taste of adventure, take on an immersive caving experience with Adventure Britain. If you need more of an adrenaline hit, experience the thrills of climbing, swimming, and sliding through these natural obstacle courses with Mountain and River Activities.
After all that fun, satisfy your hunger with a freshly prepared homemade meal at the New Swan Hotel.
Family Mountain Bike Weekend Tour
Disconnect from the every-day and explore Afan Forest Park the way it was meant to be, with a family mountain bike tour.
Start the weekend by setting up camp at Willow Springs Campsite, a small eco-friendly campsite in the heart of the Afan Forest Park.
Less than a mile from the campsite, you will find Afan A Blast who will make sure your bikes are ready to take on the Forest’s trails. Mountian bike and e-bike hire is also available for the weekend.
Check out all the trails on the Afan Forest Park website before you ride. The Rookie Trail is the most accessible for young riders of all abilities.
After all that mountain biking, you will be pleased to know that Afan Lodge is on hand with hearty food and refreshments.
Action Packed Short Stay
Fill your family holiday with adventure and take on the unmissable action-packed activities that the Dramatic Heart of Wales has to offer.
As any adventurer will know, setting up base is a great place to start. Tyn Cellar Farm is close to all the action, and its award-winning accommodation will wow the whole family.
Kick-off the action with a splash. Team up with Surf School Wales and ride the waves at Aberavon Seafront.
Next, you will need to buckle up for Margam Park Adventure’s go-karting safari adventure in the grounds of Margam Country Park. The kids can take charge of steering whilst the parents provide the legwork as your race in one of the family go-karts.
Finally, a Dramatic Heart of Wales adventure is not complete without taking on the Go Ape Treetop Challenge. Swing and zip through the trees and leap from Go-Ape’s biggest Tarzan Swing.
