But don't worry if you have a family of 'non adrenaline junkies', this place is for you too... there's easy scrambles to enjoy, plus some basic climbing and abseiling too... although your muscles might ache a little the next morning!!!

A warm welcome allowed the girls to immediately relax into their surroundings, and the ponies/horses were fantastic throughout.

Preseli Ventures were fantastic throughout, with our guide (Tommy) teaching us about beach safety, ocean awareness and surfing skills and techniques in an easy format that worked well for both girls.
