Family Adventure Weekends in Wales

 

An immersive, energetic and kinetic weekend in Nature’s playground, the spectacular North Pembrokeshire Coast.

Paddle, jump, surf and traverse a magical landscape, taking precious time with your family to explore, discover and reconnect. Fresh Atlantic air and aqua-marine waters are the backdrop to your adventures. From secret smugglers coves to mystical sea caves, amongst playfully inquisitive grey seals and diving peregrines, the Pembrokeshire Coast makes memories that last. Adventurers return to our beautiful marsh-mallow pink eco lodge, a welcoming sanctuary tucked into the folds of the Abermawr Valley, where freshly home-cooked meals await. Gather around a bonfire under the stars or curl up in front of the flickering wood-burner; you’ll have lots to talk about after a day out with Preseli Venture.

What happens on a family adventure weekend?

From the moment you arrive on Friday evening, 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 weekend so that you can relax and spend time together as a family.

You can choose a 2-day or 3-day adventure itinerary, both arriving on Friday evening, in time for a delicious home-cooked meal and departing either after lunch Sunday or Monday, feeling energised by your weekend in the Welsh wilderness.

Over the weekend, expect to find yourself sea kayaking under awe-inspiring sea cliffs, through rock gardens, sea stacks, arches and  majestic caves… scrambling, traversing and ledge-leaping into crystal clear plunge pools… and surfing clean, green peeling waves on blue-flag sandy beaches. With sustainability and respect for the ocean always in mind, our engaging guides are thrilled to pass on their local knowledge of flora, fauna and geology along the way.

Where will I stay?

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

From Friday evening to Sunday or Monday 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” hot chocolate at our reclaimed-timber bar. Our menu is deliciously varied and upbeat, with healthy, hearty meals catering for all special dietary requirements (as well as fussy eaters!).

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 the whole family entertained indoors, with a pool table, table football and a bountiful box of board games! 

Example itinerary for 2 and 3 night adventure weekend

Friday

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.

Saturday

AM: After a full Welsh breakfast, 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 back at the lodge with some cawl (a Welsh soup) and warm crusty bread before heading out to explore a stretch of coastline by sea kayak, paddling under immense sea cliffs and gazing into the aquatic world beneath you. The evening is yours to gather round a bonfire for some stargazing and toasted marshmallows.

Sunday

AM: 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: If you’re here for the 2-day weekend, we’ll wave you off after a hot lunch back at the lodge. Or if you’re staying for the 3-day weekend, you’ll take part in the Abermawr Challenge, an orienteering style quest through the local woodland and down to the beach, following clues, solving problems and completing tasks in Nature.

Monday

AM: For your last adventure, it’s your choice – another coasteer, kayak or surf trip! Or you might like to try an activity with a local provider such as a boat trip around RSPB Ramsey Island, paddle boarding from the picturesque Solva harbour or kite-land-boarding on the expansive Newgale Sands.  

PM: After a hearty lunch back at the lodge, we’re sure you’ll leave us feeling energised and inspired by your incredible experiences at Preseli Venture and counting down the days until your return.
