The best things to do on a wet day

A wet day in the Valley
Into every life, a little rain must fall

The sun normally shines on Godremamog Mill – Dale in Pembrokeshire is the 4th sunniest place in the UK, so the Valley must come close! but, even here, a little rain must fall !  If it is wet, we hope that you can find lots to do in and around the Valley itself.  There are books and DVDs in the apartments.

You can still enjoy the gardens on a wet day – up at the Mill, there is the summerhouse and BBQ hut while you enjoy an alfresco cuppa.  But why not hit the hot tub?  – you’re going to wet anyway!

Out and About – There are plenty of places to visit, even when it’s wet.  Some suggestions include:

  • – Adventure Beyond – local outdoor pursuits including kayaking, climbing, coasteering, bush craft, surfing and rafting.
  • – National Woollen Museum at Drefach Felindre 20 minutes drive from the mill.  (free and very interesting if you want to know more about how Godremamog Mill would have been in 1885, wonderful for children, plus they do a mean welsh rarebit).
  • Game – Welcome to the Escape Game, Carmarthen, join us for your escape experience and enjoy using your mind to escape one of the themed rooms.
  • Farm – on the A478 at Begelly, going down to Saundersfoot (lots of outdoor fun but also indoor animal areas, indoor children’s adventure playground, amusements and a stunning indoor fairground).
  • 5 Haverfordwest  A trampolining experience – interconnected trampolines, angled walls, roll-over platforms, slamdunk basketball nets, punch bags, trick airbag etc
  •  National Coracle Centre – Cenarth (exhibition showing coracles from all over the world, the guide is great).

  • Carew Karting – open from early March, great fun for all the family, junior and adult karting.
  • https// and  Glynhynod Farm – Teifi chesse and Da Mhile Distillery – farm shop with cheese and spirit tasting on site.
  • Celtic Quest – wriggle into a wet suit, fasten up your adventure kit ready to be led along the stunning stretch of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
  • Botanical Garden of Wales on the A48, going towards the M4, about 15 minutes out of Carmarthen, (2 glass houses, including the largest single span glasshouse in the world,  the other is a butterfly house, exhibition of bees, 100 year old chemist shop and art gallery, as well as extensive outdoor gardens, much of which can be viewed from a covered land train).

You may want to go shopping.  The new shopping centre at Carmarthen is good and there is an indoor market there.  Café Nero and Costa Coffee are fun for people watching.  There are lots of lovely shops in the towns and villages around the mill.  Newcastle Emlyn has plenty to offer. The tea shops in Newcastle Emlyn are all very cosy.  Narberth is particularly nice for art galleries and boutiques.

If you would prefer beer to tea, most of the pubs around here are very welcoming.  The Nags Head at Abercych or the Three Horse Shoes and White Hart in neighbouring Cenarth.  

You may just want to go to the pictures.  There is a multiplex at Carmarthen and a cosy picture house (and theatre) in Cardigan – Theatre Mwldan. – Theatre Mwldan – Cardigan’s cinema & theatre – Carmarthen’s cinema
