FAMILY DAY OUT AT GYPSY WOOD, BONTNEWYDD


As Mia goes to her Dad's every weekend, we don't very often go out for a day as a family of five. But every other Sunday she will be with us, and that's the time I tend to plan family days out. The past few weekends she has been staying in her Dad's for the full weekend, so hasn't been with us some Sundays. I was so excited to have her back home on Sunday just been, 17th of September, so we could all go out together. Luckily, the weather was absolutely stunning, and surprisingly hot too. We decided to go to Gypsy Wood in Bontnewydd. It's a place that's only about 10-15 minutes away from us by car, and somewhere I've been with the girls before, but haven't been for about 2 years which I'm gutted about. The whole place has changed - a lot since I last went, so it was nice to see it so updated and so much more things to do.

As Freddie isn't a very steady walker - yet (although, very confident) we got the family ticket which only cost around £25. The minute we walked into the park there was something to do, everywhere you turn there is always something for the kids to do. Whether it's playing on the trains, on a trampoline, finding the fairies, riding the cars or go-kart and so much more. We got there around 1pm and left around 4pm but could have spent a lot more time there as the kids were enjoying themselves so much.


Freddie was sleeping as we arrived which I was gutted about but after about 45 minutes I decided to slowly wake him up, and he did. From then onward, he walked everywhere. He hated to be carried, and just wanted to walk. I am still shocked now on how well behaved he was. I really do think he's going to be so laid back when he's older. He threw a few little tantrums when we left the go-kart area as he absolutely loved them. We would have stayed longer if he was a little older and was able to properly ride them without my partner having to hold and push him. But, further on we went back to the park area, and there were little cars and tractors more suitable to his age there, which he loved. He was covered with mud, on his hands, all over his jeans and shoes, but nothing fazed him and he just loved every single minute of it.

There's something to do for all ages and is one of my favourite places to visit. We were really lucky to go this weekend as it's only open next weekend until it's closed for the season. It will re-open sometime next year. If you've never visited before, I would really recommend you go there if you ever visit North Wales. You can easily spend a day there, and there is so much to do for the kids (and even fun for us adults, too) for such a reasonable entry price.

  7. Oh wow, what camera do you use? I think mine would give blurred photos of my kids on the trampoline - yours are sharp and clear.

    This looks like an excellent place for days out with a toddler, even a wibbly wobbley toddler - my favourite stage :)

    Those ride ons are awesome! Especially the one with a fab side car!

    Thanks for joining #daysoutwithatoddler - see you again soon :)
