Singles Adventure Holidays in Wales

5 days of unadulterated adventure and inspirational experiences on the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast, all shared with a group of like minded single adventure seekers.

Travel independently with a sense of togetherness: this adventure holiday for solo-travelers offers the perfect opportunity to explore the spectacular National Park coastline and dive into a unique and exciting range of activities, all under the expert guidance of our friendly and professional guides. Real and authentic shared experiences are the building blocks to deep connections and friendships which last a lifetime! Find yourself exploring along the rocky coastline as you go coasteering and leaping into crystal clear plunge pools, sea kayaking into caves that echo with the song of seals and hiking along an inspirational clifftop trail. You’ll be treated to delicious freshly cooked meals, and enjoy excellent hospitality at our fully-catered 5 star eco lodge. Adventurers return to the sanctuary of our welcoming private bar and lounge for a local brew and gather around a blazing bonfire under a picture-perfect starry night sky: sharing stories of the adventures from your day out in the wild with Preseli Venture.

"This once-in-a-lifetime trip will definitely not just be once! I wanted adventure, I was travelling on my own, and I wanted to push my own limits – and this ticked all boxes! I would definitely recommend it, and I really want to go back, I had an amazing time, and met some fantastic people."

What happens on a Singles Adventure Holiday?

Your week begins with a welcoming meal on Sunday evening followed by 5 days of adventure in the Welsh wilderness, departing after lunch on Friday having cultivated a deep sense of belonging, affinity and connection.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll be in the safe hands of our dedicated and friendly hospitality and adventure team who have lovingly curated every element of your adventure week so that you can fully immerse yourself in your beautiful surroundings in the company of your fellow thrill-seeking, nature-loving adventurers. Expect to be coasteering the rocky intertidal zone where the land meets the sea, surfing incredible blue-flag beach breaks, embarking on a full-day of sea kayaking exploration with a picnic in a beautiful secret cove, walking the world-renowned Pembrokeshire Coast path, horse-riding at the foothills of the Preselis and discovering the offshore RSPB Ramsey Island on an incredible boat trip.

Where will I stay?

You’ll stay in our unique 5 star graded eco lodge accommodation with single, twin and larger shared rooms. 

From Sunday evening to Friday lunch, all your meals are provided in our restaurant by our in-house chef, using fresh ingredients, locally sourced or home-grown where possible. A full cooked Welsh breakfast will fuel you up for your morning adventure and a hot lunch will warm you up before the next one. In the evening, relax and unwind with a two-course evening meal and order a local brew or a “Merlyn’s Magic” cream-liqueur hot chocolate at our reclaimed-timber bar. Our menu is deliciously varied and upbeat, with healthy, hearty meals catering for all special dietary requirements.

The beautifully furnished and spacious restaurant and lounge offers views down to the ancient woodland and across a rolling pastoral landscape. Our sheltered courtyard provides outdoor seating with spectacular views down to the ocean and the Penbwchdy headland. Dine al-fresco with Nature’s soundtrack of ravens, choughs and woodpeckers echoing through the valley. There’s plenty of green space outdoors for ball games, including a volleyball pitch, and plenty to keep everyone entertained indoors, with a pool table, table football and a bountiful box of board games! 

Example itinerary for a Singles Adventure Holiday

Sunday

PM: Arrive at the eco lodge from 17:00, stretch your legs with a short walk down through the woods to Abermawr, our secluded local beach, and breathe the fresh sea air. Return and settle into our cosy lodge with a welcoming evening meal at 19:30 and relax, ready for tomorrow’s adventure.

Monday

AM: After a full Welsh breakfast, get kitted up in a wetsuit, bouyancy aid, helmet and a pair of old trainers, then head off to a wild coasteering spot for your first adventure, traversing the intertidal zone of the rocky coastline where the land meets the sea. Swim, scramble, climb and leap, encountering rushing gullies, whirling plunge pools and spurting blow-holes!

PM: Warm up at the lodge with a hearty lunch before you circumnavigate Ramsey Island RSPB on an exhiliarating boat trip and spot seals, porpoises and a wealth of Atlantic sea birds such as gannets, choughs, razorbills, guillemots and puffins. Incorporating capacious caves and narrow gorges, this trip offers a unique and unforgettable passage of discovery around this magnificent offshore island.

Tuesday

AM: Today is your full day out exploring along a beautiful section of the Pembrokeshire coast by sea kayak. Paddle under immense sea cliffs and gazing into the aquatic world beneath you. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of gliding through remote rock gardens and let your imagination drift seamlesslesly into the rich and palpable history and mythology of this magical seascape, punctuated by cascading waterfalls and sculptural rock formations.  

PM: One of the untouched secret beaches you can only reach by sea provides the perfect place for a pincic and perhaps a soothing sea swim as you warm your towel on a rock, before launching once more for an afternoon of paddling. On this relaxed journey, you can really take your time watching a huge variety of sea birds up-close, from diving gannets to nesting razorbills, bobbing guillemots to fishing cormorants. You may be visited by curious seals or even spot pods of breaching dolphins and porpoise.

Wednesday

AM: After a full breakfast to fuel you up, get ready to practice your paddle and pop on an epic surfing adventure! Frolic and play in the frothy white water or hone your technique with expert guidance. With some of the best sand-bottom beach breaks in Wales, crystal clear waters and clean summer swells, you’ll be riding waves in no time.

PM: Warm up back at the lodge with some cawl (a Welsh soup) and warm crusty bread before we drop you off on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for an afternoon hike back to the lodge. From this clifftop trail you can spot grey seals lazing on the rocky shoreline, chattering stone chats flitting between the gorse bushes and the acrobatics of choughs, peregrines and ravens in flight! Mull over mesmerising rock pools in secret coves where ruby-red beadlet anemones sway, blennies dart between pebbles and winkle shells shimmer in the sun. Comb the tideline for a mermaid’s purse or sea-smoothed pottery amongst the driftwood. The evening is yours to gather round a bonfire for some stargazing and toasted marshmallows.The evening is yours to share stories, toast marshmallows over a bonfire and gaze at the bright night sky.

Thursday

AM: Refuel with a cooked breakfast ready to submerge the senses on your next wonderful, watery adventure. We'll take you to a new coasteering loaction this time for an entirely unique trip. Having found your sea legs and built a foundation of confidence, you'll feel even more connected to your environment and quick to improvise and play on this aquatic nature-trail. Brace the elements and dive into a whole new world! If the sea was like a mirror on Monday, flat calm and sparkling in the sun... today it may be boiling, surging and crashing against the cliffs! No two coasteers are the same.

PM: After lunch, you'll head our on a relaxed beginner-friendly horse-riding trek which will take you over the Preseli hills, through wild moorland, austere heath and dramatic craggy grasslands, via neolithic buriel sites and bronze age cairns, and through the lush, verdant and steep-sided Gwaun valley. Taking in the views on horse-back, you’ll be astounded by the unrivalled beauty of these untouched wilderness locations.

Friday

AM: We’ll seek out the swell for your final half-day adventure, a second surf lesson. Maybe you'll find your feet more consistently this time, feeling more control and ease manouvering the board. Now that you're paddling with more confidence, you might navigate past breaking waves to the calm "out back" where, free of the white water at last, you can really start honing your wave selection and try catching unbroken waves, perhaps even turning and trimming on the face!

PM: After a warming lunch at the eco lodge, we'll wave you off with a plethora of tales to tell, some gravity defying action-shot photographs and a myriad of magical memories with new friends.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is there to do in the evenings?

After supper you’ll be free to make the most of our awesome location, a walk through the bluebell woods to the beach comes highly recommended, and we’ll have a bonfire under the stars for you on one of the evenings. The Preseli Venture eco lodge has a relaxed social vibe and is a great place to hang out, we have a fully licensed bar and free wireless broadband, plenty of games, and a rather fetching pool table with purple baize, as well as table football! If you want to sample the local, small and friendly hill top village of Mathry, it’s just a short walk from the lodge and will give you a real taste of rural Welsh life. We can recommend an evening yoga class run by a local practitioner or a massage at our local spa if you would prefer some wind-down relaxation time in the evenings.

Do you have any participant restrictions?

The activities are open to everyone, you don’t need to have previous experience and you don’t need to be sport or outdoorsy, just come equipped with a 'go for it' attitude and a sense of fun! Participants should be able to put on a wet suit and be comfortable in the water. No swimming ability is required as the floatation jackets will keep you afloat!

What are the ages of people in my group?

We don't ask for ages on booking but typically attract a wide range from people in their twenties to people in their sixties. We welcome adults of 18 years and over of all genders and orientations.

Where will our adventures take place?

We work closely with the National Trust and have access to a range of beautiful un-spoilt National Trust locations on the North Pembrokeshire coast. The location is always chosen on the day so that we can select the most suitable place taking into account the weather, tides and swell.

How many people will be in an adventure group?

We take up to 12 adventurers in one group with two of our highly qualified instructors.

Is there flexibility in the activities that I will take part in?

We’ve hand picked the adventures and activities on this packaged-up programme so that our guests can sample the very best experiences of this wonderful coastline, but if there's one activity you're really not keen on trying, let us know and we'll do our best to swap it for an alternative (depending on availability).

What if i can't make either of the dates listed?

Solo-travellers are welcome on ALL our adult adventure weekends and holidays, not just our singles holiday! If you can't make it on the dates we specifiy for the singles holiday, please do feel welcome to visit on other dates.
