Day 10 of the Brecon Beacons Advent Calendar – Keep Those Kids Entertained


All those sweets and treats make for one hyperactive child this month so here are our suggestions on how to wear them out so you can get on with your own Christmas planning!

1Christmas at Cantref !

Santa and Chloe the Shetland

Everyone has been busy getting ready for the arrival of the big man himself, the farm has been decorated and the animals started their grooming regime earlier than normal so they looked their best and gave Father Christmas a big Cantref warm welcome! In addition to the arrival of Father Christmas there’s a real life nativity scene in the big barn where you can see & feed donkeys, lambs, goats & pigs! It’s a full fun day that can be enjoyed whatever the weather at Cantref Adventure Farm.

Their Winter Wonderland is open 22nd, 23rd – 10.30 until 5pm and on the 24th – 10.30 – 4pm. They’re closed 25th and 26th December and open 27 – 30th December 10.30 until 5pm. On 31st December there is a ‘Kids New Year Party from 10.30 until 4pm and the farm will be closed on 1st and 2nd of January.

2. Llangorse Riding Centre
Whatever the weather a trip to the centre will be worth it; inside they boasts Wales’ only indoor natural rock climbing with bouldering areas, rope bridges, an abseiling tower and a zip line. If the Christmas weather is kind to us, the outdoor area has aerial zip lines, a multi level challenge and a BMX Pump Track. Go on, have a go and make them work up an appetite for another roast!
