A Nice Welsh Farm Park Day Out For All The Family To Enjoy
Cefn Mably Farm Park (Cardiff)
Member Name: Tigerdad3
Cefn Mably Farm Park (Cardiff)
Advantages: Nice childrend play area, friendly animals and the ability to feed them all, Well priced
Disadvantages: None really
We went to Cefn Mabley yesterday for the first time after hearing about it from a friend who went there last week. Upon arriving we thought that within an hour or two we would have possibly been bored but once we entered this definately was not the case.
The park is open everyday of the year between 10am and 5pm except for 10 days over the christmas period and is pretty reasonable on prices as well. The prices at the time of us going were as follows:
Adults - £4.50
Children (12 Months +) & OAP's - £4
We were also giving the option of buying animal feed at a cost of 50p per bag which we did, well actually we bought 6 bags to start with as there was 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children) so wanted to make sure we had enough to last us the day.
As soon as you enter you are in the main indoor feature which is the restaurant which is reasonably priced and the soft play area for the kids. They have an over 5 play area and an under 5 play area.
The under 5 play area has a big soft snakes and ladders board on the floor with big soft dice for the kids to throw and soft counters to use on the board. It also has a dual layer play section with twin slide and ball pit. The best feature of it though is the floating ball machine that they got which gets the kids really thinking about it. You basically cover all 6 holes up with the soft balls, press the button and then the balls automatically float in the air for a period of time - Trully amazing to watch for the young kids and adults alike.
For the over 5 play area, there is hanging punch bags to go through the the car wash effect reels to squeeze through then numerous ways around before you find all the hidden features which are:
Small replica football pitch
Ball shooters ( Amazing fun for the kids )
Big red ball area
& Much more.
Once you make your way outside then you immediately come across an area that allows everyone to sit down and hold a rabbit or guinea pig with the ability to feed and brush them. This area is then surrounded by goats, chickens, peacocks, turkeys and chinchillas.
You then immediately come across some toy tractors that our kids loved to ride around the farm, It gave them a sense of play at the same time as learning about the animals and getting the chance to feed them.
There are pony rides available as well which are very short rides and cost £2 per person so this could be a little longer but still a great experience for little ones.
Wherever we walked around the park the animals would follow on their side of the fence (thank god lol) especially if they seen the brown bags we were carrying with their food in. We had horses tapping gates asking for some, donkeys literally screaming at us and goats trying to fit their way through the farm gates.
It was one day that we certainly will never forget and will be definately be returning there sometime soon.
For those who have never heard of it their address is - Cefn Mably Farm Park, Began Road, Cefn Mably, Cardiff. CF3 6XL
If you decide to go there we hope you have as much fun as we did.
They do also have a party room there and can take bookings all year round.
