Arriving by train, their weekend featured a Pembrokeshire coastal walk from St. Davids northwards about 7 miles to Aberriddy, walking along cliff tops and down to sandy beaches with picturesque views of Ramsey Island. They enjoyed farm fresh eggs for breakfast, the hospitality of their gracious host Geoff and in the evening dined on locally caught fish in Porthgain.   

Adult Adventure Holiday in Pembrokeshire

This mid week adventure break offers the perfect opportunity to experience unique and exciting adventure activities under the expert guidance of our professional instructors. You’ll be well looked after by our team of friendly staff, and enjoy excellent hospitality at our fully catered 5 star eco lodge. What happens on this 5 day adventure break?


Arrive in time for a home cooked lunch, followed by 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. A true Pembrokeshire 'must do'.


Today is a biggie, a full day sea kayaking along the Pembrokeshire coastline, a place where rocks, caves, seals, birds, waves, surf, beaches, harbours and much more make our coast a real sea kayaker’s paradise. Hone your sea kayaking skills, with the emphasis on exploration and wildlife watching along this inspirational coastline.


Another busy day today, in the morning you’ll take a half day surfing on one of our Pembrokeshire beach breaks, basing yourself at a beautiful beach, followed by lunch at the lodge.  For the afternoon you have a choice: either a wonderful self guided coastal walk, or an exciting kite boarding session!


Coasteering again, we’ll choose another of our awesome venues along the North Pembrokeshire coastline. Whether the sea is flat calm and reflecting the suns rays like a mirror, or raging and boiling as the waves pound the cliffs base, a superb coasteer can be guaranteed, with the emphasis on cliff jumping, wave dodging and rock traversing shifting according to the conditions; no two coasteers are ever the same. Hot home cooked lunch at the lodge, followed by a second amazing surf lesson where standing up can be almost guaranteed! In tumbling surf you laugh at the sky, soo much fun and you learn a new skill in beautufl surroundings.


In the morning there will be an hour and a half horse ride where you can enjoy inspirational views of the Strumble Head peninsula, or out across Dinas Head, from horseback.  If horse riding doesn’t rock your boat – you’re welcome to opt into an alternative activity so do just let us know in advance. Lunch at the lodge, and depart.

NB 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.

What can we 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 is a great place to hang out, we have a fully licensed bar and free wireless broadband, and a rather fetching pool table with purple baize! 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. From here you can look out over the Preseli Hills; the source of the ‘bluestone’ of Stonehenge.

Where will I stay?

All of our adventure guests stay at the Preseli Venture Eco Lodge, our five star adventure centre set in an acre of land; a beautiful location with just a one mile walk through National Trust woodland to our local beach which is stunning, unspoilt, and a place where seals sometimes sleep. The lodge has a range of cosy bedrooms including group rooms, doubles, twins, and brand new bathrooms with plenty of hot water. We keep the lodge nice and warm year round; our comfy lounge has a picture window with an inspirational view, under-floor heating courtesy of our ground source heat pump, and is equipped with a delightful wood burning stove – ideal for experiencing that ‘post adventure’ glow. Our new bar and dining area has a pool table and an incredible music system which you can plug your ipod straight into. We serve tasty meals, and tea, coffee and cold drinks are available to help yourself to at all times. Our food is home cooked, wholesome and delicious, and special diets are happily catered for. A home from home… The lodge offers spacious accommodation and has an atmosphere of homeliness and comfort. We hold the Welcome Host Silver award and we are committed to offering you the highest standards of service and the happiest and most comfortable adventure break.

Your stay at Preseli Venture will be coordinated by a dedicated adventure event manager who will be involved with your initial enquiry and will attend to every detail during your stay with us - right through to waving you goodbye. At the end of 2009, when we asked them, 99% of our adventure clients said they’d love to come and see us again, or that they would recommend a friend to come along and see us for some adventures - we’re very pleased about that.

"Our coasteering instructor, Steve, always reminded us to 'take just one big positive step' before stepping off the edge of a precipice. This gentle optimism and low key approach to having fun in the outdoors, sums up Preseli Venture for me."
