A Day With Friends

Last week me and the girls spent a day with friends, Sairish and her two adorable children. We have been planning a day out together for quite a while, so in the end we decided to visit Gypsy Wood. Gypsy Wood is about a 10 minute drive from my house, but we all took the bus. The kids loved the ride on the bus. They were also super excited to visit Gypsy Wood. They have all been there before and love it each time. The last I went with my girls was last Summer and it has changed quite a bit since.

I think we chose one of the nicest days. It was so hot {hot for us anyway!}. The entry price wasn't too bad since we spent the whole day there and the kids really enjoyed themselves {prices below}. Once we paid, we took the kids straight to toilet then let them play. They went straight onto these odd looking car/cycles. They had loads of fun on them though. The girls ended up then going to play in the little Wendy house where they enjoyed making 'food' for us.

We moved on then to the castle fort which is a big playing castle for kids. We saw that the train was leaving just as we arrived, we saw some empty spaces, so decided to get the kids quickly and we went on the train. The train driver was great. He got all children involved. He told the children to shout 'dragon' each time they see a dragon, on their travels. After the train ride we went to sit on an empty picnic bench and the kids went to play nicely. We had lunch a bit later.

After lunch we went to see the animals. There are many animals to be seen, such as, pigs, Shetland ponies, rabbits, chicken, cockerel and more. I bought some animal feed in the shop so the kids enjoyed feeding the chickens, rabbit, goats and pigs. On our travels, we stumbled upon a little house where a fairy lived. The kids were super excited. When it was Mia and Elliw's turn to see the fairy, they went really shy and quiet. The fairy gave them some fairy magic and stone in a bag, along with fairy dust on their hand.


The children had the great opportunity to brush a Shetland pony, stroke and hold rabbits and guinie pigs, they also got the chance to play with the playful and friendly dog their too. The kids were in their glory. Mia loved holding the guinie pig, but got a bit scared when it moved up on her a bit.

I think we left at the right time. The kids were starting to get tired, especially Elliw. We had a full 5-6 hours there and I would really recommend you to visit Gypsy Wood if you ever visit North Wales.
