IF you fancy doing something fun this February half term, then a visit to a Ceredigion estate could be the perfect place for you.

National Trust Cymru is hosting a number of activities and events at its venues across Wales this half term and this includes the Llanerchaeron estate.

There will be a chance to visit the elegant Georgian villa at the heart of the estate for a range of fun activities for all the family. You can learn about life ‘below stairs’ by seeing the Service Courtyard which is complete with a dairy, bakehouse, salting room and dry laundry room.

The family can also go head-to-head by playing ping pong, table football or dominos in the Old Billiard Room.

Outside, there will be a chance to explore the farm and garden as well as seeing the bare structures of the parkland trees in their full glory and admiring the frost making its way around the lake where the overwintering ducks have settled.

There will be a chance to meet traditional farmyard animals that call the estate home including pigs and bird fowl, as well as the rare Llanwenog sheep and 19-year-old Welsh cobs Seren and Tomos.

Children can also see how many activities they can tick off on the ’50 things to do before you’re 11 and ¾ list’.

The Llanerchaeron estate is open Wednesday to Sunday from Wednesday, February 14 onwards. The house, Geler Jones Collection and second-hand bookshop are open from 11am to 2.30pm on these dates. The gardens, farmyard and lake are open from 11am to 3pm. The car park and woodland walks are open all year round between 9.30am and 5pm.
