“Coasteering - Amazing day!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

I’m really not the adventurous type but with the other half into Surfing and being at one with the water he thought this would be a great thing for us to do. I was very unsure whether or not to take part and just leave it to the adrenalin junky boys, but am so glad that I did! It was such fun, hard going, but worth all the aching muscles the next day

When we got there we were put with Lizzie and Megan for our Coasteering experience. They were both absolutely brilliant. I am not very water confident but they both made this experience a brilliant day and I felt absolutely safe the whole time. We were provided with Wetsuits, Life Jacket, helmet, boots and shorts so did not have to worry about having the equipment.

We done some rock climbing and cave swimming and also cliff jumping. Honestly had such a brilliant day and I felt amazing after it. I feel this is a great experience for understanding the power of the sea and over coming any fears you may have. It was such fun, hard going, but worth all the aching muscles the next day

I would highly recommend anyone to try this. You will not be disappointed

“Coasteering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

My son and two children, 12 and 10 both had tremendous fun doing this for the first time. Very good clothing provided, wetsuits + other layers for warmth but the sea was 18 degrees last week so they managed to keep mostly warm. Sam, the leader, gave confidence and took good care of them.
Slight downside was that for logistical reasons we had to travel about 20 minutes from the site once kitting up was completed so it all took quite a time to actually get started, but overall a great afternoon..

We are happy to hear your family enjoyed their coasteering adventure with us. We will pass your kind words on to Sam too. We have access to a few different coasteering venues, so our guides can choose the best one on the day in relation to the weather and group aspirations to offer a brilliant coasteer; but we're sorry to hear there was a little bit of time before the session started. Thank you very much for your review - we hope your family can join us again soon. Alec & the Preseli Venture team :)

“Fantastic, friendly and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

We stayed in the dome for a week and used it as a base to explore the wonderful pembrokeshire coastline. The dome was brilliant with everything we could possibly need and a cosy log burner to keep us warm in the evenings. We went to some awesome beaches and cycled the Brunel cycle trail and the reservoir at llys-y-Fran which was brilliant fun.

Everyone at PV was so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and we had a great holiday.

“Excellend day's sea kayaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

I fancied a day's sea kayaking that would stretch me a little, at short notice. Preseli provided just that - a great day's paddle to Ramsey Island and the infamous tidal rapids, whose name fails Trip Advisor's decency filter!

Thanks to Jon and Meg who were great guides and to the backroom staff who slotted me into a group at short notice without any fuss.

“amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Amazing experience, brilliant memories.

This was set in a perfect location beautiful scenery and lots of activities to choose from. Instructors provided a fun and safe excursion with decent equipment. Food was delicious and always different. no need to leave the complex of the evening adequate bar and lots of puzzles, games to choose from.
Rooms did take me by surprise, wasn't 5* in the sense what I was used to! Shared bathrooms were clean and lovely and had a decent nights sleep.

The only problem I found with the adrenalin weekend was that I would have preferred to stay longer! will definitely be returning some day!

Great review to read on a Monday morning, thank you :) We have been awarded 5 stars as a Visit Wales activity centre accommodation, which means we are a bit different from a hotel or bed & breakfast, but its lovely to hear you had an amazing experience. Do come and visit us for longer soon - it would be brilliant to welcome you back. Thanks again, Alec & the Preseli Venture team.:)
