Preseli Venture Eco Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We recently visited Preseli Venture for a second time as part of a school group. The whole experience was excellent. The staff were helpful and informative at every stage. Sophie and Alec bent over backwards to ensure we were able to do everything we wanted. Libby and Jon, the instructors, were patient, friendly and made every activity enjoyable and safe. We are going back again next year for sure. We could not have asked for more I'm terms of accomodation, the food was great and our students have memories which will last a lifetime. I have led other similar trips in the past but none have offered the full package to the extent we experienced here. Really cannot praise the center enough. We did hiking, surfing, coasteering, kayaking, had evening walks to a beautiful nearby beach, evening bonfires, teamgames and a speed boat outing around Ramsey Island. Its difficult to choose a favorite as all were equally well organised and offered something for all of our students. High praise indeed but deservedly so.

Came to Preseli on a whim one weekend not entirely sure what I was doing and with no one else. I got there and had the best time! I met some amazing people as everyone was incredibly friendly and wanted to share the stories of what they did each day. The staff is so knowledgeable and friendly. They make sure you are totally safe and secure in everything you do. I was scared at a few points but they made sure I knew enough to complete and enjoy each activity. And the food was amazing!!!

I am studying abroad in London over the summer, and my friends here asked me if I wanted to go on this Wales Trip. At first I said I would join because that was what everyone else was doing and it sounded fun. But, IT WAS AMAZING! It was the best trip I have ever been on! Best weekend of my life! Everyone was so nice and always looking out for you. I'm still thinking about how and when I will go back! I can't even express in words how awesome this trip is, so just go and experience it for yourself!!

This was honestly one of the best weekends of my life. I went on this trip with a group of students all studying abroad in London together. The food was amazing, the staff was extremely friendly, and the events were perfectly planned out. It's a no brainer to go on this trip. It was absolutely stunning!

Going to Preseli was one of the best decisions I have ever made! It's a weekend I will never forget. When else can you say that you jumped off some cliffs, went kayaking in the ocean and did a 7 mile hike along the coastline of Wales?! Not only were all of the activities amazing, but the views were breathtaking. Staying at the Eco Lodge was a great time too. They have great food, a cheap bar, really friendly staff and overall it is a fun environment. When we were there we befriended other groups who were there at the same time, which was really cool to meet people from all over the world!

Preseli is definitely something you should do. I can't wait to go back!

I went on this trip as part of my study abroad experience. I am studying in London and a group of 6 of us decided to take this trip to Wales for adventure. My overall expectations were completely blown away in the best way possible. The staff was friendly, outgoing, and treated us like family even though we were complete strangers staying for the weekend. The excursions were awesome and well planned out. The whole weekend went smoothly and I will remember it for a lifetime. If you are considering going on this trip- GO! You will not regret it. Best weekend thus far of my study abroad experience.

Room Tip: Whatever room you are placed in will be fine! They are all comfortable, and close proximity to other...

I organised a stag party for a weekend and Preseli were absolutely fantastic. They exceeded my expectations from start to finish. We went coasteering which was superbly organised and lots of fun. They were accommodating for a group of 17 thirsty guys and the whole weekend was seamless. Food was really good too. Couldn't have asked for a better trip.
