There's loads of fun to be had outdoors at Cantref Adventure Farm. As well as our shows such as pig racing and pony rides we also have our Tractor and Trailer Ride. This is a great chance for the whole family to enjoy the spectacular views of the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Welsh countryside. Your tractor driver will give you a commentary about the animals you will see as you drive around the fields. You will be able to get up close to our Water Buffalo, meet some cute Shetland Ponies and Donkeys often with foals alongside during the summer holidays. You will also learn about the different rare breeds of sheep we have on the farm including the Jacob sheep which are black and white with horns and the cute little Balwen sheep which are mainly black with a little white on their fleece. Other animals include the Guanacos, Alpacas and Llamas which are quiet but inquisitive animals.
Cantref is home to Europe's longest sledge ride which is exhilarating fun for the whole family especially the adults who often go the fastest! Another outdoor attraction which the whole family can join in with is the Jungle Swamp Adventure Boat Ride. This involves team work to negotiate your way around the canal of water but watch out for the hidden jungle animals as you go round. You will also be rewarded with breath-taking views of the peaks of the Brecon Beacons including Pen Y Fan.
During the summer Water Wars is great fun for the whole family too. This is where you battle it out with water balloons and the better your aim the wetter your opponent will get. This game is hilarious fun but watch out you might get wet!
During the summer school holidays through to October half term we have our maize maze which has a different theme each year. This is a great way to get some gentle excerise as you try to find your way round the maze of paths and find the hidden clues as you go round. This is a great way to bring the family together is this fun activity.
At Cantref we have various outdoor play areas including our Dragon Slide, Tree Slide, Trampoline, Sand Pit, Wendy House and Ball Skills. We have recently replaced our agility trail with a great new Sand and Water play area. Here the kid's can pump water with the water pump and change the direction of the water on our water tables using sand. There is also a small climbing frame with hoists and pulleys to pull up the sand. This is sure to give the kid's loads of entertainment when they play here.
Outside we have our animals enclosures, pig sty and duck pond and lots of grassy space to lie back and relax on a sunny day! If you venture down to the bottom of the site where we have ball skills and our tree slide it really can be quite peaceful.
