Family Adventure Holiday

Choose an action packed holiday with a variety of wonderful Pembrokeshire adventures both in the sea and on dry land OR take a slightly slower pace with a full day of free time to choose your own way to explore Pembrokeshire – be it a day on any one of our wonderful sandy beaches, an excursion into the Preseli Hills for some Neolithic exploration, a boat trip around Ramsey Island (an RSPB nature reserve), or perhaps a visit to one of Pembrokeshire’s famous theme or wildlife parks.

Our family adventure holidays in Wales include days of discovery, fun, and exploration on the inspirational Pembrokeshire National Park coastline and are the perfect way to spend quality time with your kids. We’ll take you out on the best adventures by day, and by night we’ll toast marshmallows on a fire under the stars, or take a moonlit walk to the beach.

These are days of magic and wonder…

I wanted a short break holiday for myself and the children, full of activities and water. Preseli Venture did not disappoint. Fantastic staff, oodles of hearty home cooked food by Rosemary the amazing and very cheerful chef. Great instructors who seemed to really enjoy their job, they were Rob, Lucy, Matt, Dean and Sam, who shared his birthday cake with us all. The bathrooms were spotless, the rooms were clean and warm. I thought it was excellent value for money and I came home with two very happy and tired children. What more could I ask for. Are we going back, of course we are and hopefully taking friends with us. Looking at going in the winter months as it is open all year round - fab.

What happens on a family adventure holiday at Preseli Venture?

We have 2 family adventure holiday programmes – the Action Packed version, and the Action and Relax itinerary.

Action Packed programme

Sunday: Arrive in the afternoon and settle in at the lodge. Take a wander down to our local secluded beach or burn off some steam with a game of football or volleyball in our field. Enjoy a delicious evening meal and a night at the lodge before the adventure begins. 

Monday: We’ll get the week started with a half day coasteering, the ultimate coastal adventure – climb, swim and jump into a whole new world. Sea caves and swirling ocean swells combine to produce a truly wild environment. Watch out, it’s addictive! In the afternoon there will be an introductory sea kayaking session – we have a range of kayaks including closed cockpit kayaks, sit on tops and double sit on tops so there is a range of craft to choose from depending on your personal preference, your experience and the weather conditions. You’ll develop confidence, master forward paddling and turning your kayak, and get ready to take your skills and experience to the next level.

Tuesday: In the morning you’ll have a go at surfing on blue flag beaches on beginner friendly beach breaks. In the afternoon we’ll introduce you to the Abermawr challenge – an orienteering style challenge in our local National Trust woodland. 

Wednesday: In the morning you’ll take a second sea kayaking adventure where you’ll use your new kayaking skills to take a trip along the Pembrokeshire coastline – a place where rocks, caves, seals, birds, waves, surf, beaches, harbours and much more make Pembrokeshire a real sea kayaker’s paradise. In the afternoon take a second surfing lesson and this time you’ll be sure to stand up under the expert guidance of our surfing guides: in tumbling surf you laugh at the sky, its so much fun!

Thursday: This morning you have a choice: either you can enjoy a stunning self-guided coast path walk, or an exciting kite boarding session! In the afternoon you’ll get the chance to have another go at everyone’s favourite, the ultimate adventure of Coasteering, and hone your skills! We’ll take you to a different wild and beautiful National Trust location nearby on the beautiful National Park coastline.

Coast path walk: we have the world renowned Pembrokeshire National Park Coastal Trail on the very western tip of Europe right on our doorstep. Unwind amidst the spectacular cliff top scenery and chill out amongst the wild flowers – it’s the perfect accompaniment to the adrenalin charged adventure activities. We drop you off at achoice of start points and you’ll finish off at our local beach – perfect for a quick swim (or nap) to round off the day.

Kite Boarding: We’ve teamed up with a local kite boarding specialist to offer a half day kite boarding on the wonderful sandy expanse of Newgale beach. Kiteboarding is the perfect ‘light wind’ complement to kitesurfing, involving similar skills without getting wet. NB As you would imagine, kiteboarding is lots of fun but VERY weather dependent! Because of this we don’t charge you in advance for this activity, and payment of £45pp can be made to the kiteboarding company when and if the activity takes place. Also, for this activity you’ll need to provide your own transport.

Friday: We’ve partnered up with Twiggy and her team at Llanwnda Stables, and Hannah at Havard Stables, to offer you a fabulous one hour and a half horse riding experience where you can enjoy inspirational views of the Strumble Head peninsula, or Dinas Head peninsular from horseback.  If horse riding doesn’t rock your boat, don’t worry – you’re welcome to opt into an alternative activity, please let us know in advance. Lunch at the lodge, and depart.

NB We are sorry but we are unable to offer transport to/from the horse-riding venue, so you’ll need to drive yourself or get a taxi. The horse riding activity is included in the holiday cost. Do ask us for more info.

Please be aware that this is an outline itinerary, and is therefore subject to change according to your own preferences and to weather and tides. Please contact us if you have any questions or requests.

Action and Relax programme

As above, with the addition of a day’s free time on:

Wednesday: We’ll leave this day free for you to take some time to explore at your own pace. Our local sandy beach, Abermawr, is just a short walk through the bluebell woods and can offer you rock pools, idyllic views, safe swimming and unspoilt tranquility; it’s the perfect spot for a family day out. Pembrokeshire also offers a plethora of activities to suit the needs and interests of all the family; whether it’s a boat trip around Ramsey Island, a fishing trip, a beach walk or ramble through ancient woodland, a bushcraft course, or a bat detecting or badger watching walk, we can point you in the right direction. Lunch is provided on this day.

What can we do in the evenings?

After supper in the evenings you’ll be free to make the most of our awesome location, a moonlit walk to the beach comes highly recommended, and we’ll have a bonfire and toast marshmallows under the stars on one of the evenings. The Preseli Venture lodge is a great place to hang out, in the lounge we have a big pile of games and books, there is a pool table in the bar area, plenty of safe outdoor play areas for kicking a ball around and outdoor table football.  We have a fully licensed bar so if the adults fancy a bevvie they’re most welcome, and if the kids really can’t live without internet access we have wireless broadband!  For music lovers we have spotify premium, and an awesome sound system with ipod docking.  We are also offering evening archery sessions, so do ask us about this too.

New for 2016 We have teamed up with a local yoga practitioner who provides tailor made yoga classes at Preseli Venture. This is a lovely way to unwind in the evenings, stretching out your aching limbs and immersing yourself in the down to earth Pembrokeshire lifestyle. 

NathalieNathalie Mérour has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and in 2010 decided to go deeper into discovering  the secrets of yoga through dedicated practice, taking courses and becoming a qualified teacher.

Nathalie can provide 1-hour Power yoga sessions or 1h 30 Hatha Yoga sessions with prices starting from £8pp / hour. Just let us know if you would like to add a lovely evening of yoga to your holiday.
