Families looking for a free day out in Wrexham will find peace and tranquility with a woodland stroll around Nant Mill Country Park and Plas Power Woods. Covering an area of 42.3 hectares (104.6 acres), this ancient woodland is situated in the Clywedog valley between Bersham and Coedpoeth, 2.5km (1.6 miles) west of Wrexham.
Between the two woodland areas, families can follow a number of trails whereby they will encounter a number of wooden carved insects, an abundance of willdlife, a number of waterfalls, a ford, a weir and an adventure play ground. Better yet, dogs are welcome so a visit here is a day out for the whole family.
Both woodlands can be accessed via Nant Mill Visitors centre and car park. Nant Mill Visitors Centre was built in 1832, and here families can learn about the history of the Clywedog Valley as they stroll around this formerly used corn mill. Refreshments and information/children’s activities are also available here at select times. In the same vicinity of the corn mill, there are a number of picnic benches overlooking the river Clywedog. Don’t forget to take a seat on the beautifully carved wooden thrones for a family story before you explore the rest of the woodland.
So for an enchanting day out with kids in North Wales, why not give Nant Mill Country Park and Plas Power Woods a try. Who knows what you’ll encounter on your family adventure?
