With Easter and the school holidays just around the corner, we though we'd put together a few ideas to help you plan your days out in Carmarthenshire.
Find the Easter Bunny at Gwili Railway when you join the Easter trail. Visit the railway on the 1st and 2nd of April to enjoy some Easter fun; Easter eggs, goody bags, magic and a ride on the steam train – a great family day out!
Stradey Castle kicks off its first tour of the season with an Easter egg hunt on Sunday 1st April. Discover the history and stories behind the beautiful castle on this family friendly Easter heritage tour.
Easter Sunday lunch at the Plough Inn at Rhosmaen will include an Easter egg hunt for children up to 12 years old. Just be sure to book your table in advance and let the team know if you’ll have any ‘egg hunters’ taking part.
Combine total relaxation with a delicious treat at Llety Cynin this Easter, with a special spa and afternoon tea package. Llety Cynin caters for all ages, from the Little Lady & Junior Gent Package to the Teen Spa Package and Adults Package. Enjoy a choice of massages and access to the leisure facilities. Or skip the spa and opt for a special afternoon tea; ‘Queen of Hearts tarts’ and ‘Eat me biscuits’ can only mean one thing…a Madder Hatter Afternoon Tea.
For more hunting, head over to WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre to help Dusty find the giant yellow ducks hidden around the grounds. Running throughout the Easter holidays, visits will also include den building and pond dipping.
The National Botanic Garden of Wales will be running lots of fun events throughout the Easter holidays, starting from Good Friday. Be impressed by the world famous Quack Pack, have a go at archery, meet meerkats and watch a film under the stars.
And for some really special Easter eggs, you of course need to head over to Llandeilo's Heavenly Chocolate Emporium, where you'll find all sorts of hand-made tasty chocolate treats to enjoy!
There are lots of other attractions to visit and activities to try over Easter too - take a look at these on our See & Do section.
Or how about exploring the great outdoors after finding (and eating) all the Easter eggs? Carmarthenshire has plenty to offer those with a love of the outdoors.
Cycling routes can be found across the county, including the Millennium Coastal Park and the Celtic Trail West. See more on the places that you can discover by bike here.
Or if you’d rather explore on foot, the many walking routes in our county take in paths along rivers, coast and through forests - and may which are perfect for families. See some suggested walks here.
Finally, we love spending spring days on our beaches - whether searching for crabs in the rockpools at Pendine or dipping our toes in the sea at Cefn Sidan. Find out here about our beaches and decide which to head to.
And finally, if you're looking for a last-minute break with the family here in Carmarthenshire, filter by Family Friendly when searching in our Stay & Sleep section and get a list of places who guarantee to give a warm 'croeso' (welcome) to you and your little ones.
