Summer holiday adventures at Llanerchaeron

Try your hand at dressing a scarecrow on our Servants' Trail

Llanerchaeron is one of the best natural places for kids to have an adventure this summer, whatever the Welsh weather has in store for us...

You can be sure to have a different experience every day at Llanerchaeron this summer with a different activity on every day. Our Petticoats of Power exhibition will have a different theme each week of the holidays with a celebration day every Tuesday. We will also be bringing back 50 things Fridays – grab a booklet from reception and join our rangers to get started on your adventure!

Here are some great ways to keep the kids and parents entertained this summer...

Meg’s Mondays – Every Monday throughout the holidays
Join our gardener, Meg, who will be putting on a different activity every Monday during the summer holidays. These activities will be themed according to the Petticoats of Power trail! Try your hand at soap making for Servant’s Week, create scented juggling balls for Sports Week and much more!

The Petticoats of Power Trail – a different theme every week!
Walk in the footsteps of the amazing women of Llanerchaeron! We will have Servant’s Week, Smuggler’s Week, Code Breaker’s Week, Jubilee Week, Sports Week and Adventure Week this summer, all with different activities with the main day of celebration being the Tuesday of each week. Come and learn about these powerful women who broke barriers and made Llanerchaeron the beautiful estate you can enjoy today.

50 Things Fridays – Every Friday throughout the holidays
Climb a tree, build a den, hunt for bugs, cook on a campfire, roll down a really big hill…
With help from kids all over the country, we’ve put together a list of great challenges for you; the ultimate 50 things to do before you’re 113/4 , and we’re making it as easy as mud pie for you to do them. Either pick up a scrapbook from reception to start your own adventure, or join our ranger every Friday 1pm – 3pm for a different activity.

Ceredigion Craft Makers – Wednesday 1st Aug – Tuesday 7th Aug
Come and meet the Ceredigion craft makers – a talented group of artists, designer makers and craftspeople who work in Ceredigion. From Blacksmiths to Glass making to photography you’re sure to find an extra special gift for your loved ones this summer.

Every trip to a National Trust place helps us to look after the special places in our care, so your adventures will ensure that places can be explored for generations to come.
