Out and About – on Wet Days
In West Wales, on a wet day, you can either find somewhere dry and warm inside or . . . . . . . . get even wetter!!
Blue Lagoon is a new, indoor, state of the art, sub tropical water park, in Pembrokeshire. It has something for the whole family – baby pool for the younger family members, flume rides for the more adventurous (even some that go outside for part of the ride – even in winter!), a wave machine and a ‘Lazy River’ for a more leisurely adventure.
Or, try the latest craze of Coasteering – adrenaline packed action and adventure for all abilities and ages. It couldn’t be more simple – squeeze into a wetsuit, safety helmet and old trainers then scramble, climb, swim and cliff jump your way around Pembrokeshire’s spectacular rocky coastline, turning rocks, cliffs, caves and waves into playthings!
Staying with the outdoor water theme, why not have a surfing or windsurfing lesson? And fishing, be it sea, river or course fishing, if you’re wrapped up against the elements and don’t mind getting a little wet, the fish don’t seem to mind either!
If it’s warm and dry that you want to stay, visit some of Wales’ heritage sites and historic houses, which include some spectacular castles that remain intact and full of history and intrigue, such as Pembroke Castle or Carew Castle and Tidal Mill.
Visiting a ‘paint your own pottery’ workshop, such as the Creative Café in Narberth, will enable you to try your hand at being creative and able to take home your individual creation to take pride of place.
Or, there’s Pemberton’s Chocolate Farm where you can try making some hand-made chocolates and then purchasing similar to take home – not too many make it home though as they are too delicious to remain unopened!
So, whatever the weather, there’s always something to do Out and About in West Wales. There’s not enough time to become bored and sometimes, there’s not enough time to fit everything in.
