Dairy Wood adventure playground at Plas Newydd

A sense of adventure in Dairy Wood

Precarious rope bridges above crocodile infested waters, Ninja training camp and Tarzan's Anglesey hideaway... our adventure playground has been lots of things in the minds of small explorers over the years. One thing's for sure they can play to their heart's content in the magical setting of Dairy Wood. This summer, why not try the ‘Watch the clock’ challenge - take your time or go as fast as possible while the seconds and minutes tick by.
