What People Say About OA…

15 Years and many more to come
“We have been frequenting Outdoor Alternative for more than 15 years as a group of neighbours and family from Bury. We love the place and it’s beautiful position and accommodation with easy access to the Rhoscolyn beach.
Each year the owners invest that little bit more in the place just to add to the comfort and keep the place up to date. Superb for big family occasions but also has facilities for smaller group and families. Thanks again for the past 15 years and many more to come.”

Perfect for schools or youth groups
“I’ve just taken a group of 11 and 12 year olds to Outdoor Alternative, with activities provided by b-active. What a fantastic trip! The accommodation is lovely: clean and comfortable inside and out, in a beautiful setting, and we were made to feel very welcome and looked after by Jacqui and Mark, who catered for us with a range of hearty meals, taking various dietary requirements in their stride. The activities with Andy and Steve were perfectly pitched for the group, and it was particularly great that they were provided from the site, with no need to travel except a nice walk down to the beach! This is certainly on my go-again list.”

Great find!
“Just back after a two night stay. Fantastic location a few minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes from a fabulous pub. Facilities are clean and well kept. Lovely hot showers. Camping field is well kept. Really reasonable too – will definitely be back.”
