Family Holidays

Outdoor Alternative is the perfect base for family gatherings whether it be family and friends or multigenerational get togethers. Our accommodation offers the space to eat, sleep and relax, to spend time together in a relaxed and informal setting.

Perfect for car free days

  • Borthwen beach is 5 minutes walk down the bumpy lane. Spend the day on the sandy beach, safe for swimming and a great place for an introduction to water sports. 
  • A short walk across the fields takes you to the coastal path. Explore the hidden coves and discover a wealth of sea creatures in the accessible rock pools. 
  • Take a longer cliff top walk to the Bwa Gwyn, the natural white arch, the coast is known for its beautiful wild flowers and great for bird watching and seal spotting.
  • Take a stroll across the beach to The White Eagle for an afternoon drink in the beer garden.
  • Go Coasteering or Kayaking with B-Active Rhoscolyn our on site activity provider.
  • Get everybody together for a late afternoon game of rounders or cricket on the field.
  • Finish the day with a BBQ in the garden or a peaceful beach fire under the stars.

And the beauty of shared holidays is that you can always find time for yourself, a morning run, a refreshing swim, pilates in the yurt, sea kayaking to the beacon, paddle boarding in the bay, or a quiet spot to read a book.
