Autumnal Breaks in Wales

October 2022

With Autumn in full swing, Wales is the perfect place to experience the incredible seasonal change. From family days out, to a cosy restaurant to enjoy a meal, there are plenty of things to do in Wales this Autumn.

Woodland Walks

In the southeast region of Aberystwyth, you can find the Coed Maen Arthur woodland. Once home to a busy lead-mining industry, the Coed Maen Arthur area contains a trail that can take you through some incredible scenery. Lasting around 2 hours, the Maen Arthur trail begins near the village of Pont-rhyd-y-groes and passes over a spectacular wooden bridge that sits high above a deep river gorge. This is followed through to Castell Grogwynion, which is one of the largest hill forts in Wales, there is also an impressive waterfall to view on this walk. The Coed Maen Arthur woodland is truly one to tick off your list, as the trees become ablaze with the autumnal colours of yellow and red.

Family Activities

There’s nothing more Autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch, and Pembrokeshire Pumpkins doesn’t disappoint. In the run up to Halloween this October, why not take your family on a day out to pick your own pumpkins? Pembrokeshire Pumpkins, located on the southeast Welsh coast, not only has a wide variety of pumpkins to choose from, but there is also a woodland play area, perfect for a family day out! From hay-bales and a pumpkin barn to vintage swing boats and a firepit, Pembrokeshire Pumpkins is a great day out this autumn.


Nestled in the Snowdonian foothills of north Wales, Bodnant Gardens is an astonishing place to visit. Compiled of 80 acres, Bodnant Gardens features a huge range of trees, flowers, and buildings to explore. Noted to be particularly stunning in Autumn, there’s an added bonus that from October until March, Bodnant Gardens welcome dogs every day of the week!
