About Preseli Venture Eco Lodge
The eco lodge is Wales' only 5 star activity centre built with sustainability in mind - a perfect venue for individuals, couples, families and groups.
Built around a traditional Welsh farmhouse courtyard, this rural retreat is only a one mile walk to the secluded, unspoilt beach of Abermawr and boasts breathtakingly beautiful views of the wild North Pembrokeshire coastline. Nestled on the hillside of a National Trust wooded valley deep in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Preseli Venture’s eco lodge offers a spectacular setting for a memorable adventurous break.
The lodge is situated just outside the village of Mathry , just 5 miles from Fishguard, 9 miles from St David’s and easily accessible by the coastal shuttle buses. Preseli Venture offers free minibus transfers to and from Fishguard and Goodwick train station on certain trains.
11 cosy bedrooms accommodate up to 40 people with a variety of singles, doubles, twins, family rooms and larger rooms which can sleep from 3 to 9 people so that everyone can enjoy their own comfortable sanctuary. The lodge has an abundance of showers, toilets and wet rooms as well as a drying room.
Full Welsh breakfasts, hearty hot lunches, delicious picnic lunches and two course evening meals are prepared by Preseli Venture’s in house chef using delicious and wholesome ingredients, locally sourced where possible. They happily cater for all special dietary requirements.
Whether you’ve taken an energising plunge on one of Preseli Venture’s guided coastal adventures or hiked a stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, the eco lodge lounge is the perfect place to return and restore in front of the wood burning stove with a local brew in hand from their well-stocked and beautifully furnished bar. Whether you’re enjoying a game of pool or a bonfire under the stars, you’ll feel at home and well looked after by their dedicated and friendly hospitality team.
The lodge is charged at an exceptionally reasonable £69 per adult and £55 per child per night which includes all 3 home-cooked meals. If you only want bed and breakfast, it is £45 per adult and £35 per child.
Coasteering, sea kayaking and surfing adventures are run from the activity centre at Preseli Venture for £52 per adult and £42 per child for a half-day trip including top quality specialist kit, minibus transport to the adventure location and the instruction of professional and experienced guides.
VISIT WALES - THE COASTAL WAY
The eco lodge and activity centre is conveniently located on the final stretch of Wales’ well-traversed ‘Coastal Way’, an epic 180 mile journey which stretches from the Western tip of the mountainous LLyn Peninsula to the famous pilgrimage destination and smallest city in the UK, St David’s. Preseli Venture’s Adventure Days are an absolute “must do” on the Coastal Way itinerary, whether you’re coasteering through emerald green waters in the awe-inspiring “Cathedral Caves”, sea kayaking under the immense natural archway “Needle Rock” or surfing clean, green waves on Pembrokeshire’s pristine sandy Blue Flag beaches. Visitors describe swimming with inquisitive Atlantic grey seals, paddling with pods of porpoises and spotting a huge variety of coastal birdlife.
