Welcome to Outdoor Alternative

Outdoor Alternative's Environmental Activity Breaks- Environmental sustainability has always been at the heart of what we do at Outdoor Alternative. We work with carefully chosen local partners including North Wales Wildlife Trust, Nature-Bites and B-Active@Rhoscolyn providing Environmental Activity Breaks for schools and groups. Utilising our superb coastal location, a range of environmental and outdoor activities are within walking distance. Contact us to plan your group trip.

What's in a name? Our accommodation units have recently been renamed using common local welsh bird names. The 'Centre' has become 'Mulfran' (Cormorant) and the 'Middle' has become 'Morwennol' (Tern). We hope you like the new names!

Outdoor Alternative strikes GOLD - we have been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme GOLD award for environmentally sustainable businesses. Green Tourism say "There are lots of fantastic green measures in place .. all activities from the site are low impact while the facilities provided are also very low impact" read more here.

Late Availability - We still have accommodation available in early August, check the availability page.
