The Dinosaur Park is literally a five minute drive away from Kiln Park. You are welcomed by a huge Mamouth and you go through into a great play park. They have motorised cars, bumper boats, bungee trampoline, safari cruises, a soft play, arcades, frizz-bee golf (which I am useless at!!) you also have golf which we enjoyed as we could all do it together.
So you literally just go from one activity to the next. Then once all the activities are done, you can do the short dinosaur walk through their woodland. For an adult, I honestly can say, its nothing spectacular, but the kids enjoyed reading up on the dinosaurs and seeing how big they actually were.
Here you can see the amazing views, and the falcons ready to do their show.
Pembroke Tea & Cake Shop. Its worth a quick visit just to look at all the wonderful cakes. If you have time to sit in, they do a really good afternoon tea.
We all chose a cake or biscuit each and ate half of them as soon as we got back to the car to leave.
We went back to the caravan park, then wandered to the beach for a bit, before heading off to the inside swimming pool, so the kids could have a good swim with daddy. I sat in the restaurant overlooking it, trying to catch up on emails and twitter. The WiFi at Kiln Park is only in the restaurant, and its not particularly fast, so I literally had two phones and an iPad connected so I could do different sites at the same time.
After swimming we went back to the caravan for dinner and showers before going back to the entertainment complex to play on the arcades and exchange the winning tickets for prizes.
Our morning in the caravan was a mamouth joint effort in packing everything away and throwing out any rubbish. The hubs made lunch and snacks for our journey home and I think we left about 10.30am. You are supposed to vacate at 10am - but, unless you pack everything the night before, its never going to happen.
Anyways, so we said goodbye to our amazing caravan and started our travels home. We drove around some new roads and had a look around the areas and finally found Carreg Cennen Castle on the Brecon Becons . This is a really old un-restored castle, but well worth the visit purely for the views from the castle.
Have a look at my photos to give you an idea of how idyllic it is. This area has so much history attached it to so you must read every sign you can. This is the entrance to the castle, looking outwards.
The white building in the above picture had this sign nailed to its door, which I found completely fascinating, for obvious reasons. We had just marvelled at the age of the castle and how amazing it was that it's actually still standing, and then we find this building which is completely intact and is even older.
So these are the houses that were built with the castle brick. They look gorgeous don't they. At least if they couldn't save and rebuild the castle, they at least kept the history of it close by. The buildings are actually bigger than they look as they go back as well. They hold a shop and a big tea room which can be hired for weddings and it has the best views !!!
Kiln Park which was a big bonus for us. The main thing is, the kids really enjoyed themselves too. Their favourite was of course the beach, but everything we did they had fun and were happy and was eager to explore, and if the kids are happy then everyone's happy.
Have you been to Wales? Is there anywhere that you would suggest we go to next time we visit?
