SeaCliff Climbing | See the Pembrokeshire Coastline from a Different Perspective?
Our girls have tried indoor climbing and even motorised climbing walls but never sea cliff climbing… plus a fair few ‘adventure climbing walls’ in Exeter and Birmingham or ‘real climbs’ in Norway & Croatia… but today was a real challenge with no brightly coloured hand/feet holds… just solid unrelenting Pembrokeshire stone to find some purchase!
As for accommodation, if you’ve missed our earlier article about the quality of the Bluestone lodges, the relaxed setting and the amazing array of activities they offer, then click here, but take it from us… it’s the perfect place for a busy active family to explore Pembrokeshire… or even a ‘3G’ holiday with the grandparents!!
Pembrokeshire has been a national park since 1952 and covers an area of over 629 km2 (243 sq mi). In fact it’s the only national park that has been granted this status due to it’s magnificent coastline! Imagine a varied landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills… plus plenty of places to find some great climbs! (read more here)
It’s not Snowdonia, but if you love sea cliff climbs, then there’s plenty to choose from… try 4,500 of the best sea cliff climbs in the UK. Most climbers will head for South Pembrokeshire, and the cliffs of Lydstep, Penally and Stackpole. But for those who venture north, there’s also some fantastic climbing around St David’s and the coastline to the north east.
But in truth, we loved the climbing and the ability to abseil into another world, enjoying the sunlight dancing on the water below before getting to grips with an absorbing adventure to get yourself out… or even dangling on a top rope to try and spot the barrel jellyfish or dodge the nesting sea birds!!! Something to consider ahead of our Surfing Adventure in Pembrokeshire??
