Things to do for young children in Brecon

Recently Steve and I decided to have a short break at Baddegai ourselves with my sister, her husband , George and Alexander (aged 6 months and 2 ½ respectively).  Whilst the weather was not as good as it is now, we had an enjoyable few days visiting attractions that we would not have necessarily been to on our own.


Cantref Adventure Farm

Not sure who looks more scared – the guinea pig or Alex!


First up was Cantref Adventure Farm to keep the young children entertained whilst staying in the Brecon Beacons – a winding drive through the lanes from Baddegai or a longer, but quicker, trip along the Brecon bypass.


Alexander had a great time stroking rabbits, feeding a lamb a bottle of milk and having a guinea pig sit on his knee.  There were plenty of larger animals to look at outside and on a tractor and trailer trip we saw water buffalo, goats, llamas, alpacas, pigs, sheep, goats and donkeys.  There is also an indoor play area and good cafe for well earned refreshments for the older generation.

We were only there a couple of hours but the general consensus of opinion was that you could have stayed all day.  Alexander was probably not old enough to appreciate everything on offer and also not big enough for some of the attractions such as the pony rides.
