Pond dipping at the National Trust


Dinefwr park

On our recent little Welsh Getaway to West Wales we decided to keep things nice and simple, spending as much time outdoors, enjoying the fresh air without going to over-priced and over the top amusements so we stuck to visiting the local National Trust DineFwr Castle and Deer Park. I really need to get around to buying a National Trust Pass as we are never disappointed when we visit on of there amazing venues. Our main mission for the day was to go pond dipping, find a few critters and hopefully spot some deers.

Mr A really enjoying finding what I can only microbe as little shrimp things, as well as water snails and other mini creatures. We spent the rest of the time walking through the very large Deer Park. We did in the end come across some Deer, unfortunately I didn't get a photo as I was holding Mr A up so he could see. One our way back to the car we spotted some of Dinefwr rare white cattle which Me A loved and then we stopped at the little nature inspired play park as well as having a spot of ice-cream. It was a lovely day which we finished with a meal outside in the beautiful garden of the cottage we rented.

  4. I really want to get a national trust membership, it saves so much money. It's just one those things I never have the cash to pay out for at the time! x

  5. That looks like a beautiful place. I love visiting National Trust properties, we had a pass last year and used it loads before my weekends became working days (boo), but we haven't made it to one for months. Will have to push ourselves to go again soon, especially in this weather! x
