Gower Activity Centres

It’s Gower time!

Our activity centre at Port Eynon provides fantastic accommodation for experiencing all that Gower has to offer, not to mention views that have to be seen to be believed. For over 40 years we have been providing activities, events and education and pride ourselves on the experiences and memories that we help to create. Whether its surfing, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking or just getting away to relax and enjoy the views we have something for everyone. We work with schools and colleges to provide residential week and half week programmes, as well as creating bespoke activity breaks for groups, families, and anyone that wants to experience our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Two centres on the Gower Peninsula run by the Local Authority in partnership with the YHA and accredited by Visit Wales.  Two very different centres, but all with the same high standards and a commitment to giving you a visit to remember.

When you book one of our Centres you are guaranteed exclusive use of the Centre for the duration of your stay.

Our booking staff will help you to plan the ideal package for your group.  With a wide range of choices, from a self-catering weekend with optional adventurous activities, to a fully catered adventure week with everything taken care of for you.

Walk in Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surf the famous Rhossili Beach waves, climb the Three Cliffs, or just enjoy some of the best beaches and scenery in the country.

Our activity instructors are fully qualified to National Governing Body (NGB) standards, and are very experienced in instructing people of all ages and abilities.  Our outdoor adventure activities are licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA).

We look forward to welcoming you.
