Pasg Hapus - Happy Easter in Wales! Join the Easter bunny in the wildly beautiful west, for a long weekend activating or unwinding on the National Trust-owned Stackpole Estate in Pembrokeshire.
Surrounded by secluded, white sandy beaches such as the delightful Barafundle Bay and Freshwater West (of Harry Potter fame); the teeming woods and nature reserve of Bosherston Lilyponds; mystical St. Govan's Chapel, perched on the cliffs above the pounding Atlantic; and the action packed Pembroke Peninsula (including iconic Tenby Harbour) - this is an 'OutdoorLads family' holiday that will leave you longing for longer.
As well as walks taking in the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast, there could be some alternative activities through the weekend. Depending on member and leader interest, these may include surfing, sea kayaking, coastal traversing and cycling. For heritage afficionados we might be able to do a 'castle crawl' taking in Pembroke, Manorbier, Picton and Carew Castles. And for hedonistic holiday makers among you, there's Oakwood Park with its roller coasters and soaking thrills to turn you on ;-)
So join us and #GetOutMore in South Wales this Easter!
What to bring
If it’s your first OutdoorLads event or you are trying something for the first time and you’re unsure what kit you’ll need - don’t worry – the following should help.
This is only a guide - you will need to consider the weather forecast and the activity as described. An event in April for example can be like a summer event or something more like a winter one.
If you have any questions just message the event leader.
For lots of low level day walks in the summer you need very little gear. (This excludes any walks at height – like in North Wales, the Lakes or Scotland.)
- Good walking shoes or boots are always a good idea – as even in the height of summer we can end up wading through soggy mud.
- A waterproof jacket is pretty essential in all but the most drought like conditions. If there is the slightest chance of rain (and when isn’t there?) a pair of waterproof trousers is also useful.
- For summer walks we would also recommend bringing a hat and sun screen, you are likely to be in the sun for up to 8 hours and we often see people quite pink at the end of a good walk.
You hardly need anything special for hostels. Most, but not all, provide full bedding, but do check as one or two events ask you to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. You always need a towel. A couple of nice to have items is a torch (so you can get into the room when everyone has gone to sleep, without turning the light on) and ear plugs (we do have some right snorers).
You will obviously need what ever kit you need for the daytime activities.
If you still have any questions, please don't hesitate to connect to either firstname.lastname@example.org or the event leader.
