Gypsy Wood Park might be an outdoor attraction, but there’s still plenty to do when it’s chucking it down too! Where else can you combine fairy magic, a day out with animals and 20 acres of stunning woodland?
Kids of all ages can enjoy the attractions at Gypsy Wood Park from Didi Cars to Magnetic Fishing, Trampolines to Duck Racing and of course the Musical Tree House. Don’t forget to pick up a free quiz sheet, fairy-hunt, wish form and colouring sheet from the shop, too!
Gypsy Wood Park is also home to a number of enchanting animals including alpacas, donkeys, ferrets, goats, mice, rabbits, pot-bellied pigs and more. At 1:40pm every day you’ll also get to meet the park’s star residents – the horses Simba and Betty as well as the world’s smallest sheep, Ouessant. You can also try your hand at pony/horse grooming and there is also the opportunity to feed the animals - just pick up a bag of feed from the shop.
And if the weather is too wet for a picnic, The Dragon café serves a selection of sandwiches, cakes, pasties and sausage rolls made with fresh local ingredients.
You could also bring along your wellies and try out the Wetland Walk!
Gypsy Wood Park is found in Bontnewydd, Caernarforn off the A487.

Probably the most famous of all the many castles in Wales, and for good reason – its sheer scale dwarfs the others, and the town walls are still remarkably intact. Tourists can walk along a small part of the walls, which offers some fantastic views over the town. Also houses the museum of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
Caernarfon is known for one thing more than anything else: its mighty castle. This immense fortress dates back to the end of the 13th century – King Edward I of England had begun his Welsh conquest, taking the town of Caernarfon in 1283. The pre-existing motte and bailey structure was demolished under his instruction, and in its place began work on the impressive stone structure we know today.
The Isle of Anglesey is a beautiful part of Wales, set apart from the Welsh mainland by the Menai Strait, and it is well worth spending at least a few days on in an effort to see and experience as much of its natural beauty as possible.
Base yourself in the Caernarfon area to explore this historic castle town and the Snowdonia area. The Welsh Highland Railway starts from Caernarfon to Porthmadog, a great way to see the countryside. The Llyn Peninsula is also easily accessible. Find a your holiday cottage here.
