Look out for a future article where we will outline lots of indoor activities available close by in Swansea & Mumbles.

1) Indoor Archery Adventure
Discover the joy of archery indoors! At Clyne Farm, families can experience the excitement of archery without worrying about the rain. Learn the basics of this ancient skill and challenge each other to hit the bullseye. It’s a great opportunity for friendly competition and skill-building. Book in advance. For ages 8 years plus.

2) Creative Crafts
Stormy days are perfect for unleashing your artistic side. Gather together your pencils, paper, crayons and crafty bits & pieces. Allow the kids to get creative with painting, crafting, and making their own souvenirs. Let their imaginations run wild as they bring their rainy day visions to life. As a starting point why not get them to draw their favourite animal at Clyne Farm? Once complete bring them over to Reception – we would love to see them!

3) Storytelling
Cosy up in your cottage and engage in classic storytelling sessions. Dive into enchanting tales from Welsh folklore or embark on imaginative journeys with your little ones. Clyne Farm is nearly 400 years old. Think about what stories the walls of your cottage could tell. Who will come up with the most outrageous story?

4) Family Board Games
Did you forget to bring your favourite board game with you? Pop over to Reception where we have some that you can borrow. Join in with the kids and create some fun-filled family bonding moments. Or why not play charades? Or let the kids invent their own game for everyone to play?

5) Have a nap!
We guess this one will be a firm favourite with the exhausted adult members of the family! But how often do you allow yourself the luxury of going back to bed during the day? Now is the time to do it! Even if you can’t sleep, just lie down and listen to the rain on the windowpane. Or just settle yourself down in a chair to watch the gorgeous view from your cottage. You will feel recharged and ready for another round of charades!

6) Treasure Hunt Adventures
A bit of rain can’t stop the treasure hunt fun! Embark on an indoor treasure hunt around your cottage, solving riddles and clues that lead your family on an exciting adventure. Uncover hidden treasures and work together to conquer challenges along the way. Let your imagination run wild! Why not make your riddles farm themed, and use our animal names as clues?

7) Digital Detox
Implement a session of digital detox. Ask everyone to switch off their phones and devices. Allow the whole family to choose their own individual activity. Such as reading, drawing, planning a treasure hut (see above!), or writing a holiday diary etc.

8) Indoor Climbing Wall
For adventurous souls, our indoor climbing wall is a rainy day thrill. Challenge your kids to conquer the climbing wall while staying sheltered from the bad weather. It’s a great way to build confidence, strength, and teamwork skills in a safe environment. Book in advance. For ages 8 years plus.

9) Dance!
Bringing music and dance into your holiday can be a fantastic way to foster joy, laughter, and a strong sense of togetherness. Gather as a family and take turns selecting songs for the playlist. This variety ensures that everyone’s music preferences are represented, making the experience even more enjoyable. Let the music play and unleash your inner dance stars. Encourage each family member to move in their own unique style, expressing themselves freely. Dance to the beat, get silly, and don’t be afraid to let yourself go! (not too loud, please be considerate to any other holidaymakers next door!)

10) Relaxation and Film Time
After an eventful day of indoor activities, cwtch up together for a film screening. Set up a mini cinema in your cottage at Clyne Farm, complete with blankets and snacks. Enjoy quality family time as you watch a favourite film together. All our cottages have a Roku system so you can access your preferred streaming service easily.

Rainy days are no match for the abundance of indoor adventures that Clyne Farm Centre has to offer. You’ll find that even when the Welsh weather is less than perfect, the memories you create will be nothing short of magical. Embrace the rain, embrace the fun, and embrace the joy of spending quality time together as a family. Check our calendar for cottage availability.
