  • Six of us visited the centre on 9 July 2017 travelling from the Southampton area. My partner had booked a days coasteering with Adventure Wales Activity Centre at my request approximately 2-3 weeks earlier. We arrived at the centre to be told that we would be going gorge walking instead. When asked why we were told that conditions weren't suitable, as a result of the tides. Given that tides can be predicted years in advance it was extremely disappointing that AWAC didn't think to advise us of this when booking, at the very least to recommend that we check it ourselves, bearing in mind we didn't know the part of the Welsh coast we would be taken to. The more cynical would conclude that the centre took our money with no care as to whether we would be likely to actually go coasteering or not. This was certainly the impression given to us by the member of staff on the day. The centre were adamant they had contacted us two days prior to let us know we couldn't undertake the activity but this was not true. No discount or even apology was offered to recognise this failing. Furthermore we were spoken to in a condescending manner. We went gorge walking and ended up having a nice experience, more as a result of being in a nice location, with friends, doing something adventurous. We also warmed to our guide for the day; Rob, who did his best with a group of people who preferred to be doing something else. In summary we were conned into paying for an activity that the centre knew we wouldn't do or couldn't be bothered to check we would be able to do. The centre protect their position by caveating all correspondence with the risk that you may go gorge-walking. Short-sighted greed by management and we won't be returning and would advise friends not to either.
  • good fun! ( gorge walking )
  • We did paint balling and quad bikes were on Saturday 18th. The paintball area wasn't huge but a good enough area for 7 people with plenty of barriers for cover. The quad biking wasn't massively exciting only a small area to ride around in and you get the restricted quad which dont go fast. They didn't have enough for all seven so we had to go in groups but staff were great and we would go again if were near by
  • Great fun, we had a lovely chap called Jack take us round and he was the perfect combination of fun and safety conscious. Well worth the cost for Gorge Scrambling. Highly recommended.
  • Great place to experience some great activities! Gorge climbing, quad biking, paintball and list goes on. Staff are really friendly and are always really helpful
