In the Summer swing of things!

We have had some awesome weather of late, having said that it has turned a little drizzly this week.

I don't tend to mind a little spell of rain if it is after some cracking sun, I think of it as being the 'cool down'.

At this time of year, (as you can imagine ) availability for activities and attractions can be limited. We will try our very best to source suitable activity experiences in Wales for you and your party, subject to your requirements.

If you would like help in arranging a day out, adventure weekend or a quality family holiday away then we would be delighted to help you in the very best way we can.

Although bookings are rapid at this time of year, I am confident our Activity Wales team will be able to help.

If you are in the spirit for a bonkers break in Wales to celebrate the great Welsh Summertime then please feel free to give us a shout on 01437 766888 or e-mail

The Great Welsh Outdoors!

Down in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales we are being spoilt with amazing sunshine at the moment.

I hope this very generous spell isn't short lived as although I love being outside anyway, when the sun is shining and you feel the warmth through the windows it makes the great outdoors that little bit more welcoming and you are ready to embrace it with open arms.

I hope that wherever you are, you are outdoors enjoying the sun too, though if you aren't then come to Wales!

We can offer you so many fantastic ways to embrace the Welsh countryside and coastline, it is simply stunning.

Many enjoy trekking through the Mountains and National Parks on horseback, others prefer rolling down the hillside in a gigantic ball with a spot of Zorbing, or twisting and turning down the white water with some River Tubing may be more your style.

Whatever your likes, we can find an awesome spell of activities for you to enjoy, combining your adventure with suitable accommodation to make your stay in Wales 100% complete.

It's not too early to book a boat trip!

Spring has most definitely sprung and I love it. The prettiest site in Wales at the moment has to be the bright yellow radiance from the array of Daffodils that are popping up everywhere to say hello. They are such a gorgeous and happy flower.

Horse riding Weekend ideal for Hens!

If you're anything like me, I always vow to start the year as I mean to go on. Making a hair appointment and sticking to it, going to the dentist for a scale and polish, not forgetting anybodies birthday and always sending them a card.

I'm going to the dentist today but I completely forgot about my Uncle George's birthday on 1st January.

January and February are seemingly a very popular time for the arrangement of hen and stag parties.

We have a fine selection of stag breaks and hen weekends away in Wales, we can cater for all budgets, can tailor make a package to suit your preferences and guarantee a good time.

A popular package for hens is our Horse Riding Break in South Wales. I think the setting of a cosy Victorian guest House with a log fire and two days of riding through the Black Mountains in the company of your best mates accentuates it's appeal.

We also have a Horse Riding Break in North Wales too which offers riding with the picturesque Snowdonia National Park as your backdrop.

Feel free to get in touch if it's your mission to arrange a fantastic hen or stag party in Wales.
