Adventure on your proverbial doorstep
Adventure with Preseli Venture
Just a field away is Preseli Venture, a 5-star sustainable outdoor adventure centre geared towards providing unique, immersive and memorable experiences in nature’s spectacular playground, the wilderness of the North Pembrokeshire coast. Whether you’re coasteering the craggy rock-scape where the land meets the sea, surfing clean, green, peeling waves on sandy ‘Blue Flag’ beaches or kayaking between natural archways and rock gardens under incredible sea cliffs… Preseli Venture is the place to meet your adventurous edge.
Visitors describe swimming with inquisitive Atlantic grey seals, paddling with pods of porpoises and spotting a huge variety of coastal birdlife.
A half day guided coasteering, sea kayaking or surfing adventure costs £52 per adult/ £42 per child, including minibus transport to some incredible wild and secret National Trust locations, all specialist equipment and qualified knowledgeable guides.
Explore off the beaten track
We’re happy to help you organise activities with trusted local providers from trekking the majestic Pencaer Peninsula on horseback to kite land-boarding on the expansive sands of Newgale beach, stand-up paddle-boarding from the picturesque Solva Harbour to taking a boat around Ramsey Island RSPB reserve, home to the famous tidal rapids, “The Bitches”. Or perhaps an “Up Close” workshop at the Bug Farm!
Traverse the Celtic Coast
Preseli Glamping is seated right on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path National Trail which offers breath-taking scenery atop towering cliffs and access to magical secret beaches, making it the perfect resting spot for walkers.
Pop over to the Preseli Venture eco lodge where you can pick up a selection of maps for self-guided circular walks in the local area, all leaving from and returning to the campsite on foot! Take a trip around the Abermawr valley woodland circuit, walk to the wild Abermawr beach and over to Melin Tregwynt, the iconic Welsh Woollen Mill or explore our other local beaches Pwllstrodur, Abercastle and Pwllcrochan.
For just £25, we provide our campers with a weatherproof OS map and an incredibly insightful information pack which sets out a carefully curated itinerary utilising the coastal shuttle bus service to explore a spectacular and well-traversed stretch of the trail between St Dogmael’s and St David’s. You’ll discover a variety of landscapes from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, to volcanic headlands and flooded glacial valleys.
Bountiful relics of Pembrokeshire’s Past
Pembrokeshire has a prolific cultural history with an array of ancient archaeological sites and standing stones, a wealth of historic cathedrals, churches and chapels, a plethora of castles and strongholds fortifying the coastline and Lansker line and an abundance of industrial sites through the ages, from slate to wool. Pembrokeshire is a landscape of myth, magic and legend; it is a landscape eulogised and exalted in painting, poetry and song; a well-trodden trail for pilgrims and merchants, smugglers and pirates alike.
