Our impressive Georgian mansion is secluded in 120 hectares of diverse habitats including woodland, grassland, meadows and freshwater. Centrally located in South Pembrokeshire we are just 20 minutes from rocky shores and sand dunes within the National Park, as well as popular tourist towns such as Tenby. Steeped in history, Orielton has provided a base for many years of research and fieldwork, exploration and enjoyment for a variety of individuals and groups.
Food at our centres
For one day visits you are usually asked to bring a packed lunch unless it is specified otherwise.
Residential visits include freshly prepared seasonal meals, with a hot breakfast, packed lunch and choice of evening meal. Food is sourced locally wherever possible and we can cater for any dietary requirements. All of our residential centres have been awarded the Soil Association’s Food for Life Served Here Bronze Award which recognises organisations which go the extra mile to make sure children are receiving healthy, nutritious and sustainable meals.
We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible. Our residential centres offer a range of room sizes and layouts from single and twin up to larger dormitories. Some rooms are en suite and others have shower and toilet facilities close by. Please contact us if you want to discuss your room requirements.
Each centre also has places to relax during any free time such as a lounge, games room and outdoor space.
