Reasons for trip

What a really interesting trip out for adults as well as children. This award winning National Park attraction really brings history alive. The village consists of several thatched round houses, complete with staff, who are living the life inside. You are able to go in and see the central fire, watch and help cook bread, dress up, make willow baskets, be painted with wode, make headbands, and even try out sling shots so really keeps the grandchildren occupied! The guides are full of information about the history of the site and the surroundings and the location on a hill with a stream at the bottom makes for a pleasant walk.

There is a cafe and gift shop where we had a local lunch of cawl, bread & cheese – very tasty and reasonably priced. See the website “Castell Henllys”:
