Details

Ever feel the world is getting too large and things are moving too fast?

Good Day Out Experience Days and Activities are the perfect stress-busting way to slow things down. Take a stroll in the company of a friendly little animal or learn some farm skills or rural skills in the beautiful surroundings of the Brecon Beacons with low-key engaging sessions.

We have the perfect little guys to spend a happy few hours with and every experience day and product purchased gives funds to the designated good cause.

DINKY DONKEY WALKING
Good Day Out’s little Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys are full of character and you can spend a couple of hours with them enjoying walks across hill farm by their barn, and a picnic with panoramic views to both Pen y Fan and the Central Beacons, and views towards The Black Mountain & the Carmarthen Fans.

The Dinkies are available for walks most days year round, and individuals as well as groups can book them.

There are also special Towpath Walks along the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal at Pencelli, including a stop at The Royal Oak’s beer garden for refreshments for you and the Dinkies.

WALK A SHEEP
If you would like a more “farmy” experience, you couldn’t get more Welsh than spending some quality time with a sheep on an upland hill farm.This lovely experience has been especially created by Good Day Out and is a curious mix between pony trekking and llama walking, but with wonderful woolly companions.

The creators of Sheep Trekking have been taking sheep for a walk for over 5 years and have been featured on BBC Countryfile and the national Press. The lovely flock of Jacobs Sheep are now well used to pottering around the drover’s routes on a lead, and people of all ages have enjoyed this curiously mindful experience.

The Jacob lads are a placid breed but a fair size, so there are newer additions to the fold in the form of tiny Ouessants which are the smallest naturally occurring breed of sheep, and the latest sheepy companions are Swiss Vallais Blacknose sheep with their amazing white dreadlocks.

With treks through the summer, come see these cute little sheep and their woolly friends!

PIGGY WALKS WITH A PIG-NIC
Good Day Out's Piggy Walks are with little Kunekune piggies who love walking along the scenic Senni Valley with their handler who lives in this idyllic hidden valley.

All four are Kunekune pigs, which is a New Zealand breed that are small in size and of steady temperament although they have big personalities. The name Kunekune means “fat and round” in Maori, so don’t expect any slender creatures!

With walks year-round, the girls enjoy the interaction, and like all our experiences, the walking is actually good for their health and wellbeing so you can be sure that you can have a great time whilst enjoying their great company.

SHEEP DOG EXPERIENCE
Learn all about shepherding with a working dog with Ross Games who trains sheep dogs and regularly competes internationally at sheep dog trials. If you love One Man and His Dog, you'll love this as you will have a chance to command a working sheep dog with sheep to move them around the field!

HEDGEHOG EXPERIENCE
Spend the morning at a working Hedgehog Rescue near Lampeter. Learn about 1st aid and emergency care and help feed any hogs and hoglets in the rescue. A great chance to help our local wildlife.
