It’s coming up to that time of year again when we need to show old Dad how much he means to us. The Brecon Beacons is a great place for unique gifts, days out or activities to enjoy together.
Here’s are a few ideas to inspire you this Father’s Day…
For the red-blooded carnivore why not treat Dad to Black Mountain Smokery’s meaty goodies? Choose whole hams to tapas, cured or smoked meats such as Welsh Dragon sausage or welsh beef. Or give in and buy the lot – the Smoked Meat Hamper which includes goose, duck and chicken breast, pork sausages, quail and cranberry sauce all presented in an elegant hamper box, so all the hard work is done for you, now just for the card…
If Dad likes nothing better than sipping away at a scotch at the end of the day, forget the big names and watch him marvel at the taste of this boutique Welsh ‘wysgi’. Penderyn produces just one cask per day of their finest malted barely spirit so it really is something special for a whisky loving father on Father’s Day, or if he’s really keen why not go with him on a tour of the distillery?
Bottles from £7.09
Nevermind bonding over pixalised sports games or machine gunning imaginary terrorists, there’s a real world to see out there where you can test your abilities and tackle physical obstacles together. This memorable experience with Adventure Britain involves camping , camp craft, cooking outdoors, navigation skills, map reading, mountain walking all culminating in the must try activity gorge walking! And what better place to let off some steam together than the natural playground that is the Brecon Beacons.
Packages cost £250 for the father and son combined for two nights full itinerary
Luckily Father’s Day falls at a time of year when the Welsh sunshine is beginning to show. However, if Dad isn’t one for lounging in the sun, Good Day Out a way to get you both out enjoying the splash in no time. With coasteering, a refreshing day in the water means Dad will feel years younger whilst you can (secretly) enjoy showing him how it’s done.
£75.00 for 5 hours
Countrypad are also offering a last minute deal this weekend with their Claret and Kippers package. Guests can enjoy a case of Claret and a batch of locally smoked Black Mountain Kippers ready to cook as you choose. The whole house is now available for £2,900!
Oh, and Dad’s come in free this Sunday at Cantref Adventure Farm! They’re also running a Facebook competition where a family of five can win free admission for the day! Simply share and like the picture and add caption of what the Shetland pony might be saying…
