Sophie and Nick Hurst set up the company back in 1988, 2 people with a passion for the outdoors and real adventures, with the express vision of taking people into their adventure zone whilst at the same time providing an economic force for unspoilt wilderness areas, such as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in west Wales. In today’s chaotic world, we are structured to provide an “earth-grounding” experience with Nature. As technology increasingly removes us from our roots, we believe that renewing our relationships with the natural elements is immensely beneficial. With creaming surf, boiling tide races, beautiful rock gardens and echoing sea caves they found the west Wales coast provided the perfect backdrop for their unique brand of hospitality, exhilaration and adventure.
This adventure provider has exhibited a long term commitment to continuing to be an economic force for sustainable use of our coastal National Park – their priorities are to meet the needs and expectations of you; their customer, whilst at the same time benefiting the local people, the local economy, and respecting the environment.
Surfing, coasteering, kayaking and hiking are all fabulous low impact ways of exploring the coastline. We keep travelling to a minimum, and run our minibuses on local bio diesel to lessen the impact of our travel, and in your free time we encourage you to take advantage of the local coastal shuttle buses. We'll also point you in the direction of local service providers, so you can experience the best of Pembrokeshire, but also continue to make sure that the money that you spend stays in the local economy.
This adventure break offers a unique opportunity for your family to 'take time out' in an inspirational natural environment, re kindling our bonds with nature, as well as with each other. Our adventure lodge accommodation is low impact in many ways – a ground source heat pump provides hot water and heating, and electricity is sourced from a green energy provider. Food is sourced locally as far as possible, food waste is composted, and other waste is recycled. We reuse, reduce and recycle as far as possible, and encourage our guests to do the same.
We employ a range people living locally as guides and hospitality staff, and through our interactions with our guests we aim to impart our enthusiasm, and respect for, the inspirational Pembrokeshire coast and countryside. By providing year round employment , and year round visitors in a geographical area renowned for problems of seasonality we make a strong and positive contribution to the local economy.
This adventure centre is a founder member of the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group, which exists to develop sustainable environmental growth in a rapidly expanding outdoor adventure and tourism industry, and we are also involved in actively lobbying and campaigning for increased access to Pembrokeshire via public transport.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
