Cefn Mably Farm Park

If you’re looking for a great family day out in South Wales, I know the perfect place. With everything from farm animals to a huge indoor soft play, Cefn Mably Farm Park is just the ticket. In this post I’m going to share with you one of our favourite places in South Wales and tell you should to enjoy a visit to Cefn Mably Farm Park with kids

Located not far off Junction 28 of the M4, Cefn Mably Farm Park is a brilliant place to take the kids, whether the sun is shining or it’s pouring with rain. You know that saying, there’s no such things as bad weather, just bad clothing. Well, it’s so true, especially where Cefn Mably Farm Park is concerned.

We discovered this family day out in South Wales back in 2015 when we decided not to sit in the house on a Saturday morning. We had been meaning to find and visit this farm park so thought this particular Saturday was as good a day as any to visit. It took us about 40 minutes to get there from our house and when we arrived at around 11am, there was lots of space in the car park. We made our way into the farm park building, paid our entrance fee (more on that below) and found our bearings. Inside the building is the coffee shop/bistro, the soft play area that has a section for babies and older children, the toilets and the farm shop. From here we made our way outside to explore and see what animals we could spot.

When you enter the outdoor areas, you first pass by the indoor animal pens which included sheep, goats and lots of rabbits. These rabbits, of all shapes, sizes and colours, are pets which have been rescued and need adopting. It was quite sad to see how many they had, and although I felt like this we didn’t crumble. I know from friends having had rabbits that I have enough on my plate looking after, at that time, two dogs. We had bought a bag of animal feed when we paid our entrance fee and I fed the animals as our son was having none of it. I guess he was still a little young at the time and wary of the various animals.

From the petting area you venture outside and pass by the horses which our son was fascinated by. We usually stop to play in the small play area. The Farm Park has two play areas, this small one beside the pony and horse pens, and a much larger one too further around the park. Our son loves the swings in this area and then usually he makes a beeline for one of the many play tractors they have around the Farm Park. These ride-along tractors are a huge hit and he generally doesn’t want to get off them, even when it’s time to let other kids have a go. That’s when bad cop Mum comes out!

There are lots of various farm animals at Cefn Mably including pigs, donkeys, sheep, goats and horses.

Ducks roam freely near the pond, and the horses are clever animals. If they see a brown paper bag of animal feed in your hand as you pass by they run their hooves on the ground to attract attention. Clever! I can never resist feeding these ones. They’re not stupid.

We generally spend about an hour to an hour and a half wandering around, feeding the animals, before heading to the second playground, where it has been known for our son to get wet pants on the slides when it’s raining during our visits. I don’t mind this as I always bring a change of clothes. We also tend to only go round the outdoor areas of the park once, so he can get as wet as he needs.

Once we’re finished outside, we generally head indoors where I change our son and we relax with a cuppa on the sofas at the soft play while he plays. The soft play area has two designated areas. One for younger children and one for older, although Alex always ends up in the older section shooting balls from guns. It’s so well hidden I usually have to go looking for him to make sure he’s ok. But he always has a ball in this soft play. We’ve also eaten at Cefn Mably and I can highly recommend the steak baguette, it’s delicious.

On a recent visit to Cefn Mably, we arrived before our friends did and I let our son have fun jumping in puddles while we walked around outside. It has to be done, so long as you’ve got a pair of wellies on. As usual, I got him changed once we were inside and let him head for the soft play while I had a cuppa and a Welsh cake while waiting for friends to arrive. On this visit we went back outside with our friends and Alex got to ride one of the ponies, his first ever pony ride. They cost just £2 and the token can be bought in the cafe. However, he was on strict instructions not to get wet again as I had used the spare change of clothes for him.

To exit the farm building you pass through the farm shop and when we lived in Wales we always took a few minutes to browse the shelves. They have everything you can imagine from chutney and jam of all flavours, to fresh vegetables grown locally, to a butchers selling meat produced on the farm itself. We often couldn’t resist buying a few things including sausages and rashers for a Sunday morning breakfast.

Things to note when visiting Cefn Mably Farm Park with Kids:

  • Cefn Mably is open from 10am to 5pm everyday except the 24th-28th December and New Years Day.
  • Admission costs £4.50 per person over 18 months old during weekdays and term-time. At weekends and non-term time, admission costs £6.50 per person. Family tickets for 4 people cost £24. *
  • Digger rides, cart rides, pony rides and animal feed cost extra. Digger and cart rides are payable at the rides while animal feed and pony rides must be paid inside at reception or the cafe.
  • Cefn Mably has a coffee shop and bistro to buy drinks and hot and cold food.
  • There is a large soft play with two areas for babies and younger children, and for older children. no food or drink is allowed in the soft play, and shoes must be removed but socks must be worn at all times. There are disposable socks available to buy at Cefn Mably.
  • Outside there are two playgrounds, a smaller one near the pony ride and a larger one near the vegetable patch.
  • The farm shop sells gifts and produce either produced on the farm or locally.
  • There are toilets next to the soft play with baby changing facilities available.
  • Plentiful seating is located beside the cafe for eating and there are comfortable sofas with small tables located around the soft play area.
  • Only guide dogs are allowed in Cefn Mably Farm Park.
  • The car park is quite large and is free of charge.
  • There are plenty of hand-wash stations around the indoor and outdoor areas to keep hands clean and germ free. Use them.
  • Make sure to bring waterproofs, or wellies at the very least, and also a change of clothes. That way you can all enjoy the park whether it’s raining or not and you can change the kids before they head to the soft play.
Cefn Mably Farm Park With Kids - A great family day out in South Wales.

All in all we have spent many a lovely Saturday morning at Cefn Mably Farm Park, both just as family and also with friends. It was a great family day out when we lived in South Wales as it never took us long to get there. We’ve even returned for a visit while in Wales recently, as mentioned.

Cefn Mably Farm Park is a great place to visit with children of all ages. It’s a wonderful place to let kids get up-close-and-personal with farm animals. You can touch and hold animals in the indoor area and pet the various farm animals through their pens in both the indoor and outdoor area. They’re all very friendly and none of them have tried to eat our fingers yet!

There are plenty of hand washing stations dotted around the park to keep both little and big hands clean and free of germs. You can buy animal feed at the admissions desk and parking is free of charge. As I’ve already said we arrived as late as 11am on a Saturday morning and there was plenty of parking, but by the time we left at 12.30pm the main car park was full and arriving visitors were starting to park in the overflow car park. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to get to from Junction 28 of the M4 and I’d recommend it to anyone in South Wales as it’s a great place for little people to get up close with farm animals of all shapes and sizes. We’ve always enjoyed our mornings there and I am sure we’ll be visiting again in the future.

Wanderlust Kids #11

Where have these two months gone? Seriously, 2018 is just shooting past. I can’t believe we’re starting March already! And I’m excited for this month, as BattleKid and I are headed to Ireland for a 10-day road trip. We’re going to visit quite a few castles, see some animals and also catch up with family, some of whom we haven’t seen in a year. A huge thank you to all my regular linkees who linked up last month and also to some first-timers. You are all welcome and I loved reading all your posts.

We had posts with hints and tips, family travel and days out in the UK, further afield and a bit more far flung too. So, here are February’s featured and special mentioned posts.

February’s Featured Wanderlust Kids Post

It was really hard for me to decide on just one post for my featured post but it has to be Annette from Four Acorns‘ post about visiting Coral Beach in Connemara. For anyone who isn’t familiar with Ireland, Connemara is a wildly rugged and beautiful area located in the West of Ireland, in County Galway. It is many, many years since I’ve visited Galway and Connemara and this post set off a longing in me to revisit the West of Ireland.

This beach looks stunning, and the perfect place for little ones to get lost among the rockpools, hunting for crabs and other such creatures. Annette’s pictures are amazing and her descriptions are what really hit home with me. We won’t make it to Galway this year, but I have a feeling a trip to the West of Ireland might be on the cards for next year. Please go and read her post about Visiting Coral Beach in Connemara.

February’s Special Mention Wanderlust Kids Post

Because I really couldn’t choose between two, they both get a mention. Firstly, Sinead, from Shinners and the Brood share her post in which she shares her tips for booking a European Campsite Holiday was brilliant. She covers everything from getting there to choosing the right campsite, to deciding on your must-haves and must-nots, her post was very informative and will go a long way to helping anyone prepare to book a camping holiday in Europe.

Secondly, Emma from Wanderlust and Wet Wipes shared another of her posts from her series about their trip to Jordan. This time she wrote about their visit to Petra, a place I long to visit. It looks especially stunning at night and it was great to read it can be enjoyed by little ones as well as adults. She even gives us suggestions about where to stay if you are planning to stay near Petra for your visit.

February’s Other Great Posts

Annabel from Smudged Postcard shared some ideas for your family summer holidays including places in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece that are a bit less touristy but still worth visiting.

Lisa of Baby Loves Travel shared her post about Their holiday plans for this year in which they will try to have 12 trips, an average of one per month. I don’t think we’ll manage that many this year.

Riz from Rizology wrote about her visit to Bluestone with three other mums. They all brought their babies and thoroughly enjoyed their visit. To date, I’ve never read a bad review of Bluestone.

Liberty who blogs at Liberty on the Lighter Side shared tips to make travelling with your kids easier. I agree wholeheartedly that travelling with your kids opens your eyes and helps you see things in a way you tend to lose as an adult.

Michelle from The Willow Tree shared her post which has some great hints and tips for visiting Disneyland Paris. 

Jenny from Travelynn Family linked up a post about short walks for young kids in the Peak District. All too often I find we don’t go on walks because we’re worried about little legs, but Jenny’s post is packed with ideas for walks in the Peak District, many of which cover a distance less than 2km. 

Every month I love seeing what posts people are linking up and I love reading them all. They always give me serious Wanderlust no matter what the subject or where on the world they are about. I must say a big thank you again to everyone joining in with Wanderlust Kids.

This month I’m linking up my post about our first dragon hunting adventure here in Portugal. One thing I was worried about when we left the UK was whether we could continue our dragon hunting adventures. Little did I know that Portugal has many, many castles just waiting to be explored.

My ‘Wanderlust Kids’ linky will open from the 1st of each month for you to link up a post, old or new, which involves travelling with kids. It can be a day out, a family holiday, a travel review, somewhere new your children have discovered or a post with hints and tips about travelling with kids. As long as it features kids and is travel based it can be linked up. The following month I will write a synopsis of the posts linked up by everyone, and I’ll be featuring my favourite one, linking back to everyone’s blog.

So, if you’d like to join in, just grab the badge below, add it to your post and link up your post via the link up button below. Please make sure you visit a few other posts that have linked up and leave a comment. Alternatively, if you’d prefer not to add the badge, simply link back to this post.

Wanderlust Kids #10

Wow, 2017 was a quick year. And I can’t believe we already a month into 2018. How did that happen? We didn’t have a Wanderlust Kids linky last month as Christmas was a busy time but it’s back for 2018 for all your kids-based travel posts. A huge thank you to all my regular linkees, I hope to see more from you this year. And if this is your first time joining us, welcome. I hope I’ll be reading lots from you this year. 

Without further ado, let me tell you December’s featured and special mentioned posts.

December’s Featured Wanderlust Kids Post

I had never before thought India was a country to visit with kids. It always worried me how they would get on with the heat, food and possibly busy areas. However, Jenny from Travelynn Family linked up her post about top things to do in Jaipur with Kids and it’s completely changed my thinking. Not only does it look like an amazing part of India, but she also shared lots of tips for visiting some of the various sights with kids. The Pink City looks stunning and that sunset at Nahargarh Fort looks amazing. Please pop over for a read of her blog post if you haven’t caught it already.

December’s Special Mention Wanderlust Kids Post

The other post which really caught my attention last month was posted by Nicky of Go Live Young. She shared her post about Camping with Kids in Wadi Rum in Jordan. It’s another thing I wouldn’t have thought possible with kids but it sounds amazing. The rock bridge looks scary and their picture of the Milky Way is just spectacular. Why not pop over and check it out.

December’s Other Great Posts

From Toddler to Traveler shared their post comparing Carnival and Disney cruises with toddlers. Which one came out on top? You’ll have to pop over and find out!

Lisa of Baby Loves Travel shared her post about visiting London Zoo with a toddler. We’d love to visit this zoo one day.

Lydia from Hollidaze and Hellidaze linked up her post about why the Angsana Lang Co is a brilliant luxurious family resort in Central Vietnam. It really does look pure luzury.

Truly Madly Kids shared their post about why kids love Brighton. With things like the BA I360 pod (like the London Eye) and the pier, it’s easy to see why.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts last month and cannot wait to see what is linked up this month. I must say a big thank you again to everyone joining in with Wanderlust Kids.

This month I’m linking up my post Tips for Visiting Disneyland Paris: The Ultimate How to Guide. We visited Disneyland Paris in December for the first time as a family and had a great time. So I thought I’d share as many hints and tips about visiting Disneyland Paris as I could. It was my longest blog post to date too, so feel free to just pin it for future reference!

Wanderlust Kids #9

Wow, November has flown by. As I post this month’s Wanderlust Kids linky we are just days away from our first ever family trip to Disneyland Paris. And to say I am excited would be the understatement of the year. It’s been five years since BattleDad and I visited, and we cannot wait to see BattleKid’s face when we arrive at Disneyland. We’ve been watching Disney movies in preparation. But first, I must thank everyone who linked up their kids-based travel posts last month. I’d like to thank my returning linkees and say hi to the newcomers as well. I’ve loved reading everyone’s posts.

November’s Featured Wanderlust Kids Post

The post that has added another destination to our family travel bucket list and is this month’s featured post was from Celine at Family Can Travel. She linked up her post about How to see Oslo in 5 days with children. BattleDad and I flew through Oslo on our way to Tromso and are planning a return trip in a few years with BattleKid. But I think we are going to have to add a few days onto our trip to include a stopover in Oslo. The sculpture park sounds interesting as does the opera house where you can walk on the roof. But most of all I know BattleDad and I would be most excited to visit the Viking ship Museum as we are fans of Vikings, the TV series. The Vikings also settled in Dublin and established it over 1000 years ago, so to see real life Viking ships would be amazing.

November’s Special Mention Wanderlust Kids Post

The other post which deserves a special mention was posted by Helena of Babyfoote in which she tells us all about their stay in Chiang Mai around the festival of Loy Krathong. Thailand has been on our family travel bucket list for a while, but I wasn’t aware of the Loy Krathong festival until I read Helena’s post. The weaved baskets for the river look amazing as do the temples they visited. I just know we’d thoroughly enjoy visiting Thailand for this festival!

November’s Other Great Posts

Jenny from Travelynn Family shared her post in which she tells us why Doha I worth a stopover with young kids. Although accommodation can work out expensive, the half day desert trip sounds like so much fun.

Iris from Baked by Mummy Iris linked up her post about visiting Taipei with Kids. The post includes her one-day itinerary and it looks amazing, especially the Longhan Temple. I’d love to see it at night too.

Nicky of Go Live Young shared her post about doing a road trip along the Garden Route in South Africa with kids. Her 7-day itinerary includes whale watching, hiking and meeting ostriches. I’d be very tempted to do this before our trip to Kruger National Park, if we get the chance to go.

Wandermust Family linked up their post about dealing with jet lag going east. They have some great tips to help families with toddlers deal with jet lag if travelling east.

Truly Madly Kids shared their post about visiting the Cote D’Azur with kids. They stayed in a lovely mobile home and had a great family holiday. BattleDad and I have visited Nice pre-BattleKid, but I was glad to read there is plenty to do and see in the area with kids in tow. Another trip might be in order.

Helena from The Queen of Collage linked up her post about going to a baby-friendly bonfire celebration at Roves Farm in Wiltshire. There was plenty to do including a soft play area, food, and of course fireworks to enjoy. Great to see somewhere that caters for families with younger children.

Lisa of Baby Loves Travel shared her post about exploring Grennwich with a toddler. She visited the National Maritime Museum and Mudchute Farm. I just know BattleKid would have to be torn away from the AHOY area of the museum as it sounds great.

Claire from The Ladybirds Adventures linked up her post about their family’s adventures in October. Their month included a trip to a forest school and also to the Lake District, somewhere I’ve never been in the UK but always wanted to go.

Tracey of Mums Makeup Bag shared her very funny post about surviving their first family holiday. The experiences along the way and the laughs they had resonated with me and reminded me of our past sun package holidays with BattleKid.

Lydia from Hollidaze and Hellidaze linked up her post about visiting the Maldives with her kids. Despite having to choose from the limited resorts that would accommodate not one, but two kids, they had an amazing holiday and I’d love to visit. I’d also love to experience the Sand and Stars dinner.

Shades of Courage shared their post about seeing Jerusalem from ramparts. It is definitely an interesting way to see the city but not one for strollers.

Naomi from Trips with a Tot linked up her post all about their family holiday to Haven Thorpe Park in Cleethorpes. It sounds like one of the best Haven holiday spots with loads for families.

And last but not least, Rosie of Eco-Gites of Lenault shared her post about why you should choose one of their baby-friendly self-catering gites as a base for your family holiday in Normandy. They have everything you’ll need to avoid having to pack the kitchen sink.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts last month and cannot wait to see what is linked up this month. I must say a big thank you again to everyone joining in with Wanderlust Kids.

This month I’m linking up my post in which I shared 5 things you can do around Lake Bled with a toddler in tow. We visited Bled when BattleKid was eighteen months old and wouldn’t have even considered it as a holiday destination with a toddler unless our friends had suggested it. We thoroughly enjoyed it. In my post, I hope I’ve shown that you shouldn’t discount Bled as a destination to visit with a toddler as we loved it.

Wanderlust Kids #8

Last month I had a record number of people linking up to Wanderlust Kids and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every single one of the posts. I got some great ideas for destinations to visit with BattleKid in the future and also some excellent hints and tips.

September’s Featured Wanderlust Kids Post

The post that got me really excited while reading it last month was by Jenny of Travelynn Family, who shared their 16-day itinerary of their visit to Sri Lanka with their boys. I’ve always wanted to visit Sri Lanka and BattleDad and I almost did for our honeymoon, but we chose Cuba instead. That said it is still on my wanderlust bucket list. From beaches and elephant sanctuaries to the capital Colombo, they covered a lot in this detailed tour itinerary. I have this post pinned to one of my travel boards on Pinterest for future reference!

September’s Special Mention Wanderlust Kids Post

Another post which I thought deserved a special mention was from Annette at Four Acorns. In her post, she gave us comprehensive details of all the places her family enjoyed wild swimming in France during the summer. From incredible beaches to swimming under a derelict Roman bridge, she had some stunning pictures in her post. What a way to spend the summer!

September’s Other Great Posts

Wandermust Family shared their post about favourite city breaks in both the Middle east and North Africa with babies from the bloggers who have been.

Andrea from Topsy Turvy Tribe told us about learning lessons from travelling with toddlers including some great tips for travelling with them such as always carry cash, something BattleDad rarely does.

Elizabeth from Dutch Dutch Goose shared her post about their trip to visit Mount Pilatus in Switzerland. It reminded me of a similar trip we did to Mount Rigi pre-BattleKid.

Paul at Family Makes told us all about their visit to Hadrian’s Wall. I never knew you could actually walk on the walls and their children got to meet a Roman soldier too.

Helena of The Queen of Collage shared her post about their visit to Gisacum in Normandy to see a Gallo-Roman archaeological site.

Annabel at Smudge Postcard showed how enjoyable slow travel on a narrow boat on the Basingstoke Canal could be for celebrating a birthday.

Nat at Awaybies shared her post about visiting Kidzania with her 8-year-old. This kid play area at Westfield Shopping centre looks amazing and kids will love it!

Katie of Mum of 2.5 shared her post about their lovely family holiday to Spain to visit the grandparents.

Zen Baby Travel shared their post about an amazing hotel which they went to for their first family holiday as a foursome. It looks incredible.

Tara of After The Rain Comes Sunshine shared her post about their visit to Felbrigg Hall, which is a stunning National Trust property. From her pictures I can certainly see why she fell in love with it.

Johlene from Johlene Orton linked up her post telling us why you should visit Sioux City if you are ever on Gran Canaria island. I think BattleKid would love it after our recent trip to Yellowstone in which we met real cowboys and cowgirls.

Laura from Side Street Style shared with us her post about their action-packed weekend at the Just So Festival. They stayed in vintage tents and had an all-round amazing time. I urge you to watch her video of their weekend, the pillow fight looks like so much fun!

Claire from The Ladybirds Adventures share her post about their September family adventures. They’ve even started autumn by collecting conkers, pine cones and acorns.

Melissa at The Family Voyage shared her comprehensive post about car seat options if travelling with babies or young children.

Niamh from Treasure Tales shared her post about a family break in Wexford, Ireland. I can’t believe I read someone mentioning a baby bowl. If you’re not from Ireland, you won’t get the reference. It’s something I always missed when eating out with BattleKid in the UK!

And finally, Lisa of Baby Loves Travel shared her post about their experience pf the Camper Calling Festival. I must admit I’d never heard of it before reading Lisa’s post, but it looks and sounds great.

I really cannot thank you all enough for linking up so many wonderful travel posts last month. I enjoyed reading every single one of them and am getting excited to see what is linked up this month.

And for this month, I am joining in with my post all about our recent mid-week stay at Bluestone. We have stayed at Bluestone before but for weekend breaks. This was our first time to enjoy it mid-week.
