National Trust Erddig Visit and Competition

another day of sunshine ahead of us we decided to make the most of it and see
if the boys could complete anymore of their “50 things to do before you’re 11¾” list. I have such a high opinion of
National Trust visits after our day out at Chirk Castle and Erddig proved to be
just as popular with my two boys, hubbie and myself.

on a campfire

Erddig had laid one on especially for the campaign and staff were available to “safely” introduce children to their first campfire
experience. My two enjoyed toasting
their marshmallows and then squishing them in-between two digestive biscuits
(for an extra £1.50 each it was money well spent! Although neither hubbie nor I got even had a nibble they were
wolfed down!).

for bugs

liked how Erddig provided children with little bug magnifying containers and a
booklet of the bugs they were most likely to spot with information about them.

bird watching

had binoculars on hand and a booklet of birds you could loan during your stay. It made the visit that little bit extra
special with my boys being equipped like real trackers and they enjoyed spotting a Moorhen sitting on a nest of eggs on the water.

would have thought completing four of the challenges would have worn them out
but they still wanted to explore the historic house and play area (called the Wolf’s Den). They particularly enjoyed the Children’s Trail, which asked
questions about the rooms they were walking around and really got the boys
thinking about life over the last 250 years.

Plenty of outdoor space at Erddig for children to burn off LOTS of energy!

  1. The Tudor Merchants House in Tenby is supposed to be a good day out so I would like to visit there, though I've also heard it's small so not sure a full day would be needed, so could hit the beach then!

  2. l live in Wales so l know what a great choice there is……..l would need to consult with my grandchildren however before l make my decision though

  3. I would love to visit any and all desinations as I never got a chance to do trips like this when I was a child. Would be lovely to take my little brother and sister!

  4. My partner is Welsh and I love to visit. There are so many great places to see and I get to hear him speak his native tongue, lol. I think I'd go for Chirk castle if I won 🙂
