Things to do with the Kids this October Half Term

Looking for inspiration to keep the kids (and you) entertained during October Half Term? Luckily there are plenty of things on in the Brecon Beacons and lots of brilliant places to stay!

Deep underground in Dan Yr Ogof Cave our annual ‘Halloween experience’ takes place. Long before you get to the unique setting for our Halloween festivities the cries, moans of the ghosts, and ghouls can be heard echoing through the cave! Looking up you will see witches flying out of the smaller cave passageways as they make their way to Cauldron Chamber, which is the starting point for this unearthly event.
Everywhere in this section of the cave the human skulls, spiders, rats, and screeching sounds indicate that you are in another world, the underworld, where everyone’s most terrifying fantasies have suddenly become a reality!
This is one experience you will never forget, however hard you try !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
