Places To Go In North Wales With Families


Over the summer, we went on a short break to North Wales, in fact not so far from the area where Kerry from this blog is based!

It's such a beautiful area, and must be amazing to live in proximity to such amazing scenery. The whole family really enjoyed our time there and would love to share our experiences and recommendations.

We stayed near to Ruthin on a small campsite within a working farm, where some wooden wigwams had been placed. I had never stayed in anything like this before but it was comfy enough and brilliant value too, so it is something I would recommend. Coming from London, it's such a change to be out in the open countryside with nothing but fields and grass all around. Even the air feels so fresh and clean! It is so envigorating and was great for the boys to have a chance to run around and burn off their energy in the great outdoors.

There were plenty of places to go, and things to see and do. Had we been there longer, I'm sure we would not have run out of things to do and with only a couple of days we were really spoilt for choice.

As we were so nearby, we first went along to Ruthin Castle. This is actually now been turned into a spa and hotel but they are very happy to let you wander around the grounds to explore the castle ruins and the gardens! I took so many pictures, which you can see here.

There are more castles we would have loved to see, like Caernarfon Castle, Denbigh Castle and more. I am sure we will be back at some point in future though!

We also went to Greenwood Forest Park which is said to be the top family attraction in North Wales. I would agree with that, as there are so many different activities included in the park. My boys all loved it! (Ages 5, 3 and 2). We could have easily spent a whole day there if we did not have more things on our list to see and do! The highlight for my boys was the den building, which I found quite heartwarming to see them so enthusiastic for such a simple and natural back to basics activity. I have loads of photos of this over on my blog too and a full review of Greenwood Forest Park.

One of the other gorgeous places we visited was Colwyn Bay. We went up on the Great Orme Tramway up to the Great Orme Summit. What an amazing view! We were pleasantly surprised to discover a great playground at the top too, which was ideal for the boys. It was so great to see them playing with such a beautiful backdrop. It feels so calm and peaceful. 

It must be amazing to live in such a beautiful area, but I'm glad we had the chance to go at least for a short visit!
