Dan Yr Ogof Caves
Now, where can you take us kids to capture that special ‘magical’ Christmas experience that we will remember for the rest of the year?
Just 20 minutes from the M4, (junction 45), there is a Welsh mountain, with ancient caves, whose entrances are guarded by gigantic, but very friendly dinosaurs! Deep inside this mountain lies Wales’ only natural Christmas grotto… Fantastic!
Imagine the excitement as we set off to find Santa, and follow the twisting, turning cave passageways that eventually lead us down into Santa’s magical underground world. Underground lakes, waterfalls, vast colourful hanging cave formations have all been transformed by the truly stunning Christmas decorations put up by the ‘Cave Bears’. As dad is always saying “seeing is believing”!my day’s fun will just go on and on. The next amazing thing we can see is Cathedral Cave – its HUGE! Then we visit Bone Cave!
There is even an Iron Age Farm to see and a great Museum. Dan-yr-Ogof has one of the largest collections of life-sized dinosaur models in the world. That’s really cool! There will even be a tractor waiting to take us down to the Morgan Brothers’ farm for us to see all their farm animals, and of course their magnificent Shire Horses!
