DAYS OF MAGIC AND WONDER
One of the biggest challenges on a family holiday is keeping the kids entertained, so we’ve planned in advance.
Family adventure holidays
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 blazing bonfire under the stars. Incredible memories are made, and as parents you can relax, safe in the knowledge that your kids are kept active with a full week of adventures and family fun times.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have any age restrictions?
We welcome young people of 9/10 years and older, the only pre requisite is that they are 114cm tall or more, and that they are happy to be in the water.
What can we do in the evenings?
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. This is a great place to hang out, in the lounge we have a big pile of games and books, a pool table, plenty of safe outdoor play areas for kicking a ball around and outdoor table football. We have a fully licensed bar, 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.
Do we need to participate in all of the adventures if our kids are?
No, our fully qualified guides can take your children unaccompanied, we just ask that you are available once we return to the lodge at the end of an activity. Our guides are experienced and qualified for working with families and school groups so your children will be well looked after.
