Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer


As part of the educational support partnership with
Admiral Group we recently invited a number of their employees to #Plantasia Tropical Zoo for Team Building sessions. During this visit they were able to get a flavour of the interactive educational offer that they support, as well as getting an in depth insight into Plantasia's latest offerings. The staff benefited from theoretical planning and also participated in practical team building skills delivered by our Parkwood Leisure sister company Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer. A fun yet educational day was enjoyed by all.
Fel rhan o'r bartneriaeth cymorth addysgol gyda Admiral Group yn ddiweddar, gwnaethom wahodd nifer o'u gweithwyr i Sลต Drofannol Plantasia ar gyfer sesiynau Adeiladu Tรฎm. Yn ystod yr ymweliad hwn, roeddent yn gallu cael blas ar y cynnig addysgol rhyngweithiol y maent yn ei gefnogi, yn ogystal รข chael cipolwg manwl ar gynigion diweddaraf Plantasia. Manteisiodd y staff ar gynllunio damcaniaethol a chymerodd ran hefyd mewn sgiliau adeiladu tรฎm ymarferol a gyflwynwyd gan ein chwaer gwmni Parkwood Leisure Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer Mwynhawyd diwrnod hwyliog ond addysgol gan bawb.

Do you know how caves are formed?
These large underground chambers form from the erosion of rock in the presence of water with a slightly acidic tinge.
It can take more than 100,000 years for a cave to widen large enough to hold a human!
The continuous erosion produces ridges, towers, fissures, sinkholes and other characteristic landforms, and caves which extend further underground than the opening is wide are called Endogene caves
Visiting or exploring caves for fun is often called caving, potholing, or spelunking.

Interested in exploring for yourself?
You can find out more on the Caving page of our brand new website


Ydych chi'n gwybod sut mae ogofรขu'n cael eu ffurfio?
Mae'r siambrau mawr tanddaearol hyn yn ffurfio o erydiad craig ym mhresenoldeb dลตr sydd fach yn asidig.
Gall gymryd dros 100,000 o flynyddoedd i ogof ledu digon mawr i ddal dynol!
Mae'r erydiad parhaus yn cynhyrchu cribau, tyrau, holltau, tyllau sinc a thirffurfiau nodweddiadol eraill - a gelwir ogofรขu sy'n ymestyn ymhellach o dan y ddaear na'r agoriad yn eang yn ogofรขu 'Endogene'
Yn aml, gelwir ymweld neu archwilio ogofรขu am hwyl yn ogofa, ceubyllu, neu 'spelunking'.

Oes gennych chi ddiddordeb mewn archwilio drosoch eich hun?

Do you know the difference between a chalet and a cabin? ๐Ÿค”
Generally they are thought of as being the same, however if you want to get technical - a chalet can have more than one room whereas a cabin tends to be limited to just one room!
As you can see from our gallery, our chalet consists of 6 good-sized bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and a comfy open-plan kitchen-diner and lounge.
If you're travelling as a group you can book the entire chalet; and when there's no groups on site, you can stay on more of a room-by-room basis.
Take a look at the wonderful Dolygaer Chalet in more detail on our brand new website ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ and click on the book now button to view the room-by-room accommodation options

Ydych chi'n gwybod y gwahaniaeth rhwng chalet a chaban? ๐Ÿค”
Yn gyffredinol credir eu bod yr un peth, fodd bynnag os ydych chi am fod yn dechnegol - gall chalet gael mwy nag un ystafell tra bod caban yn tueddu i gael ei gyfyngu i un ystafell yn unig!
Fel y gwelwch o'n horiel, mae ein chalet yn cynnwys 6 ystafell wely maint da gydag ystafelloedd ymolchi 'en-suite', a chegin-gynllun agored gyda lolfa.
Os ydych chi'n teithio fel grลตp gallwch archebu'r chalet cyfan; a phan nad oes grwpiau ar y safle, gallwch aros fesul ystafell.
Cymerwch olwg ar y Dolygaer Chalet hyfryd ar ein gwefan newydd sbon ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ a chliciwch ar y botwm archebu i weld yr opsiynau llety fesul ystafell
