Embracing October Half Term

Published on 2022-09-23 / By Hammy@Trefeddian

October Half Term can paint a bleak picture of miserable damp days and bored children…but that needn’t be the case with a stay at the Trefeddian.  There is plenty to do for the whole family from teeny tiny ones to grumpy teens and even better when you don’t even need to leave the front door to keep them entertained!  

We have cupboards full of family board games and jigsaws, a fun games room with air hockey, pool tables and table tennis, perfect for a family tournament or lose the children for a few hours while you “cwtch” up in one of our cosy lounges with a hot chocolate and relax knowing they’re happy and safe.  A splash around in the pool will be sure to tire them out and if its dry and bright (we’re ever hopeful!) the tennis court and putting green are great family fun.

If cabin fever sets in then pop on your wellie bobs, wrap up warm and venture down to the beach, fly a kite or build a sandcastle.  Explore the golden sandy beach for sea life and shells or walk the four miles of shoreline to Tywyn if you’re feeling really energetic.

There are some fantastic attractions near the hotel if the kids are getting a bit cranky and need even more entertaining…

Talyllyn Railway

Our favourite by far is the fabulous Talyllyn Railway just up the road in Tywyn.  Little ones love the camaraderie of the amazing staff and volunteers and even the grumpiest teenager will love using the Talyllyn App whilst trying not to enjoy their day out!  Receive 20% off your journey when you stay with us.

Magic Lantern Cinema Tywyn

Tywyn is also home to the incredible Magic Lantern Cinema, an awesome experience before you even watch a movie.  With treats served at your table by the friendly staff this really is a cinema like no other.  Choose from a selection of delicious savoury treats; a sumptuous cheese board, nachos with guacamole or a traditional box of popcorn to name just a few.  For those with a sweet tooth; build your own ice cream sundae from a huge list of yummy toppings or choose from a massive range of sweet or chocolate bowls!  Sounding good then head over to their website and book a matinee performance while you stay with us.

If you feel like travelling a bit further afield to keep the peace between siblings, a trip to Bounce Below in Blaenau Ffestiniog is fabulous fun for everyone.  Unleash the inner thrill seeker in you all on the enormous underground net adventure and slide through the disused mine.  For the more adventerous check out Zip World soaring high above disused quarries...this is not for the faint hearted!
