Bristol Zoo is very nice if you want to drive that far. It's about £8 to get in, but if it was something you wanted to do regularly, you can get annual membership which is good value. It's beautiful in the spring too.

I have been to Longlet and LOVED it. It was great and I would go again. We took a picnic as well as there is loads of space.

my ds loves bizarre days out. For instance - the local fish shop!! (much cheaper than an aquarium!), pet smart and he adores MFI! I thijk it is all the space he can have a good run about.
Trying to remember what we did when ds was 6 months old. try

coddy the days out are for him and dp im basicaly taxi for them i want some where out doors because im trying to get as much fresh air in him as possible where possible the reason i want to take him different places is because i want him to see new thing like animals and stuff we took him to one park by us and we saw a squiral and the first time he saw it he was wide eyes following it we took him to anther park a week later and showed him a squiral again and he just looked at us daft and thanks for the web site will have a look there now

my ds hates going into town dont like lots of people around him he seems to get scared where he would cry to be taken out of his pushchair and hold onto us for dear life not ure why though because a month ago he loved town and people but now its a stugle to leave the room or leave him with someone without him looking for us constant also strange because up until he cut his first two teeth he didnt care who had him as long as they fed him now all he seems to want is us so trying to find a way to get him around other people but where he could look at other things and not feel nervous
we were thinking the beach in the summer same as the holiday but its up until then going awayin may

Which park by you mtj? (just being nosey now). Not Beechwood by any chance? Of course, you don't have to say if you'd rather not.

emsiewill · 14/03/2004 23:19

Oh, and Noah's Ark Zoo Farm (or similar name) is good fun, if you ignore the creationist messages.

here is a thread talking about it.

mummytojames · 14/03/2004 23:47

yes em its beechwood sounds as if you know it well

mummytojames · 15/03/2004 22:19

Don't want to be too specific, but I'm at the bottom of the park - main road into town?

mummytojames · 17/03/2004 22:44

know where you mean we should meet up some time in the town

Cor, a Newport meetup - that would be cool. We should get the Cardiff and S Wales people along (Bron, jac34, Cerys, zippyb, I'm sure there's others)

mummytojames · 19/03/2004 23:56

sounds like a great idea
