The Blue Lagoon, Pembrokeshire

If you have older children who would like a little adventure, then this is the place to visit. If you bring your own wet suits (and suitable shoes to protect your feet) you are able to jump off the old buildings, down into the deep lagoon. There are no waves or tide to worry about and it is set in an absolutely fantastic location, worth visiting even if you just fancy a look and want to stay dry! Looking down on the lagoon is amazing and it’s hard to believe how blue the water is. On a sunny day especially it is a really cool place to visit.

Monnow Bridge, Monmouth

Monnow Bridge is the only remaining fortified river bridge in Great Britain. Many of these once common, medieval bridges have been destroyed over the years, but the Monnow still stands proud. It is situated of the River Monow and is still in superb condition, even after been erected in the 13th century. It is free to visit and you should only need around 20 minutes so it could be worked into a larger schedule of sightseeing. There are guides on hand to help and answer any of your questions. It’s great to imagine what the world was like before cars!

Llanthony Priory, Llanthony

These ruins are a historic gem, set high up in the hills of the Black Mountains. You will feel a million miles away from anywhere in this remote location, which is truly stunning. The priory flourished in the 12th Century, inhabited by a community of monks. Nothing remains of the original buildings today, as they were destroyed, but the beautiful windows and archways that survive are clues to the grandeur and importance of this site in its heyday. Quiet and off the beaten track, Llanthony Priory is a picturesque place to visit.

Llyn y Fan Fach, Brecon Beacons

This atmospheric lake is hidden amongst the Carmarthen Fans and can only be reached on foot. There is a free car park at the end of the track, but once you get here you need to walk the rest which is fairly steep and should take you around half an hour. Once you reach the top, the view is breathtaking. Before you visit try to read up on its connection to a folklore legend known as the Lady of the Lake, a romantic tale which will set the scene before you witness it for yourself.

Monknash Beach, Monknash

This Jurassic coastline is absolutely stunning, and so is the beach. To access it you follow a tree-lined windy path along a small ravine and stream – some argue the walk down is the best part! This beach isn’t meant for sunbathing, more exploring. It’s very stony and has a small waterfall and cliffs (don’t get too close, rocks can fall from time to time). This would be a perfect day for those with a sense of adventure and if you are able to be up on your feet for a few hours on rough terrain. The dogs would most definitely enjoy it!

South Wales

Whether you would like a city break or a countryside escape, South Wales has got it all. South Wales isn’t all about the capital, Cardiff. You can experience some culture by visiting a museum or castle, or get away from it all and take in the breath-taking landscapes. South Wales boasts green valleys, rolling his and a wild coastline. The national parks feature in all the best-selling guidebooks and whether you would like to escape into nature or enjoy a day at the beach, there is something for everyone here.
