Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Pembrokeshire activity weekend in Wales

We are committed to continuing to be an economic force for sustainable use of our coastal National Park – our priorities are to meet the needs and expectations of our customers, whilst at the same time benefiting the local people, the local economy, and respecting the environment.

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.

Surfing, coasteering, kayaking and hiking are all fabulous low impact ways of exploring the coastline. We keep traveling to a minimum using our wonderful nearby locations for the activities, and use our minibuses instead of many separate cars to lessen the impact of our travel.

Our adventure lodge accommodation is low impact and low carbon 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 have acheived the Green Dragon environmental standard level 2. We reuse, reduce and recycle as far as possible, and encourage our guests to do the same.

We employ a range of local people as adventure guides and hospitality staff, and through our interactions with our guests we aim to impart our enthusiasm of, and respect for, the inspirational Pembrokeshire coast and countyside By providing year round employment for local people, and year round visitors in a geographical area renowned for problems of seasonality we make a strong and positive contribution to the local economy.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The whole trip was great, for me as a professional working long hours in the city I loved how easy it was to book and then get away for some fresh air and exercise without having to worry about it. Oh and for every food requirement I heard mentioned (nut free, gluten free, lactose free, vegan...) they seemed to have a solution!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Definitely take two towels (one for activities and one for showering). Plenty of warm clothes and shoe changes are helpful but they do provide all technical kit. Remember this is a hostel, a nice one but be aware of what to expect. Relax and go with the flow!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


They seemed really focused on minising the impact on the environment, lots of focus on reducing waste, renewable sourcing of power and recycling (they should possibly get rid of the plastic straws in the bar though!)

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I had a great time, the place is well organised which is partly why I booked it. All I had to do was book, pack and get on the train in London, everything else was sorted for me with plenty of time for activities and relaxing. I was a solo traveler and had a lovely room to myself and then was put into groups for everything else. I have done some group activity things in the past and felt that the guidance and organisation provided by Tommy and Miles was some of the best I've seen. The lodge staff were really friendly too.
