Welsh Wildlife Centre
We are so very lucky to have the fabulous Welsh Wildlife Centre on our doorstep. Situated in the nearby village of Cilgerran, this centre is a must if you like the outdoor life and wildlife. The walks through this nature reserve are beautiful and, if you look closely you may see all manner of wild animals, birds and flora. Buzzards soar the skies, owls roost in the trees, waders take to the marshes, warblers (who are VERY secretive) may be seen if you are patient and lucky, and kingfishers may dazzle you with their colourful plumage.

Otters have occasionally been spotted along the banks of the rivers, rabbits and deer may skip shyly away if you disturb them, and insects and butterflies are found in abundance. You can ask for a “Spotting Chart” and tick off all that you manage to see.

HOWEVER, the most exciting animal living on the reserve at the moment are magnificent Water Buffalo who help to keep the wildlife marshes under control and help maintain this important habitat for other species. These huge, gentle animals live at this reserve during the spring and summer months; if you manage to take some good photos of them, please send us some; we’d love to see them!

There is also an award winning café, an education centre, a gift shop and much more. Take a look at their website to find out what’s on while you’re on holiday here.
