Gypsy Wood is a place of fairies and frivolity, of toys and tales and of play and playfulness. Come here to delight and enthral your young children in the shadows of magnificent Snowdonia.
The wood is home to Shetland ponies, miniature goats and small Mediterranean donkeys – all perfectly proportioned for children’s eyes! Bring along Wellington boots to tackle the wetland walk – a must, especially for children (and adults) partial to a little puddle jumping.
Feed the ducks, cuddle the baby goats, watch the peacocks proudly strutting and the llamas lolloping around – it’s all here in the 20 acres that is Gypsy Wood Park! It really is an enchanting outdoor attraction for all the family and is considered by many to be one of Wales best kept outdoor secrets.
Miniature Garden Railway
The Park is the setting for the UK’s largest miniature railway and you can all marvel at the intricate workings of this fascinating attraction. The railway boasts nine tracks that pass alongside a miniature replica of Snowdon. All the trains are modelled on actual trains that exist on the Welsh railway system including Welshpool and Bala. The fun thing about this is you can picnic by the miniature railway and then go and find the real life trains to ride on yourselves!
