TREETOP ADVENTURE GOLF-CARDIFF 


We were lucky enough to be invited to try out the new indoor Treetop adventure golf  course in Cardiff! And little did we know that we’d be in for a real treat….nestled in the heart of Cardiffs City centre it really was a fab afternoon out exploring an indoor tropical jungle full of golfing delights.

The kids had a fantastic time and it was a great location for a family treat..
Here’s how it looked..
The courses were fantastic and we really felt like we were in the jungle with sights and sounds all around us…
   
  

With two course we played the first and in between we stopped off for snacks in the themed cafe corner overlooking the courses…


  
  
  

 The kids had non alchoholic cocktails!!

The attention to detail was fab all around in every corner, nook & cranny….even the toilets!
  

After our break we went on to do the second course of two…


And we had the chance to win a free round on the last hole…



And we won a return visit!!!

   Treetops adventure golf  was a fantastic treat for the kids and they loved it! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank them for inviting us to play.

Everyone here at ‘Family Days Tried & Tested’ gives the Treetops adventure golf course the big thumbs up and suggests that should you want to treat the kids then this is the place to do it! 10-10

TINTERN OLD STATION 

 We went on an after school adventure took us to The Old Station in Tintern, a favourite local spot of ours to take a picnic to and walk through the woods, along the riverbank, through the meadows and generally absorb the beauty of the Wye Valley in which it’s nestled in.

It costs just £1 to park for 3 hours and is always open. 

There’s a stationery train which double as a museum & gift shop during the day and a cafe that sells all sorts of yummies….but you’re free to take a picnic too. 

The play park has recently been added to and you can check their websites for organised events if you’d prefer…we just like to visit to enjoy all the natural beauty it has to offer….

FIRST SNOWFALL MINI ADVENTURE/ UPPER WYNDCLIFF

With snow seemingly falling everywhere overnight apart from within the green bubble that surrounds our house we headed out on a mini adventure in search of the snowfalls that we could see on the hills in the distance.
We found our patch just outside Chepstow in Upper Wyndcliff.
The Upper Wyndcliff car park is reached via a lane off the A466, 1⁄2 mile north of St Arvans. The car park is on the right after about 1⁄2 mile. The footpath on the left at the back of the car park is signposted for Eagle’s Nest and the Wye Valley Walk which gives you stunning views across Wye Valley.

We were only on a mini adventure so settled for a walk surrounding the car park….this in itself was a lovely walk but only lasted an hour…..just enough to wear out little legs.

We headed over the stile and onto the farmland and explored the fields…

Here’s how we got on..
We started our walk under dark skies in the company of a rainbow…IMG_5378.JPG

IMG_5390.JPGwe made tracks and followed them..

IMG_5391.JPGand even tried a little sledging without a sledge 😉

IMG_5399.JPGwith soggy bums, cold snowman building hands and school run time approaching we decided we’d had enough snow fun and headed back to the car…

But not without saying goodbye to our afternoon friend…
