Enjoy a day out exploring the gardens, traditional stables, farmyard, lake and grounds of the Estate. See what animals are on the farmyard and visit the vintage carts, tractors and a steam roller in the barns. Let the little ones explore nature, spot local wildlife and take part in our seasonal activities.

May half term (25 May to June 2)

Escape for some rural fun this May half term at Llanerchaeron. Whiz around trails on balance bikes, tackle the wooden obstacle course, or pick up a tree trail and see how many different trees you can spot as you explore the walled garden and lakeside walks.

Discover the Georgian Villa’s Service Courtyard complete with its dairy, bakehouse, salting room, and dry laundry room. Head to the barn to explore the collection of vintage tractors, farm equipment and the steam roller in the Geler Jones Collection.

Play room and hay play

Go head-to-head with family and friends in the Old Stables play room with Ping Pong and table football. Or get messy in the water and sand play and have fun in the new hay play area on the farmyard.

Farm animals

Before heading home, don’t forget to say hello to the pigs, calves, poultry, Llanwenog sheep, and Seren and Tomos the 19-year-old Welsh cobs on the traditional farmyard. Can you spot the 3 Llanerchaeron cats too?

There’s plenty to keep everyone entertained at Llanerchaeron.
