Family Adventure Weekends
New for 2016! We will be running family adventure weekends throughout the summer holidays so families can come along for a shorter stay or add a weekend onto our 5 day midweek holiday to make a full 7 day break – fab!
Our family weekends will look and feel very similar to our adult Adrenalin Cocktail adventure weekend, but are family friendly!
The weekend will include 2 or 3 days of discovery, fun, and exploration on the inspirational Pembrokeshire National Park coastline and is 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 bonfire under the stars.
You’ll stay in our comfy 5 star graded eco lodge accommodation. All your food for the weekend Friday night to Sunday lunch is provided by our in house chef, meals are home cooked and delicious, and vegetarians and special diets are happily catered for.
You’ll be well looked after by our team of friendly staff, and enjoy excellent hospitality at our 5 star eco lodge, your lovely “home from home”.
We also have ‘glamping’ accommodation with our Geodesic Dome which has a double and 2 single beds and comes with a cosy log burner.
The Dome is perfectly situated at the bottom of the valley and tucked in next to the un-spoilt woodland – lovely. This is also a convenient distance to the lodge so you can still enjoy use of the facilities.
There is a bbq and picnic table with a gazeebo shelter so that you can bring your own self catering equipment along and set up a cooking area. Or you are very welcome to eat in the lodge if you’d rather have yummy home-cooked meals all provided.
What activities can I do?
During your 2 or 3 day holiday you will have the opportunity to take part in half day adventures including coasteering, surfing and sea kayaking and a self-guided coastal hike on the beautiful North Pembrokeshire coastal path, as well as including extra activities such as horse riding and kite boarding.
To help you in choosing the perfect Adrenalin Cocktail combination here’s a bit more on each activity:
Coasteering The ultimate coastal adventure – scramble, swim and jump into a whole new world! Coasteering is the perfect way to explore the sea caves, rocky arches and secret channels hidden along the coast. Our expert guides take you out to enjoy a fantastic wilderness experience. Try cliff jumping and playing in the swirling ocean swells – its open to everyone, anyone can do it both young and old. But Watch out – it’s addictive!
Sea Kayaking Kayak beneath towering sea cliffs into sun-dappled caves and weave your way through amazing rock gardens. 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.
Surfing The art and science of riding clean ocean swells on idyllic sandy beach breaks. With a little help from our talented guides you’ll be standing up in no time. We are blessed with perfect blue flag beaches on beginner friendly beach breaks.
Coastal walking We’ve got 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 exciting adventure activities.
Your adventures will be led by our fully qualified and friendly instructors who really know their stuff and are great with children.
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 lovely woodland 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 volleyball too, 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. We are also offering evening archery sessions, so do ask us about this too.
