Kayaking for Kids

Kayaking for Kids

A great #family day spent in Pemrokeshire, #Wales with #active #kayaking explorations through coves and caves. Obviously a little cream tea and cake couldn't go a miss either!

My kids and I were in Pembrokeshire this week with some other Mums and kids. My friend Lizzie and her two eldest went sea kayaking at the National Trust’s Stackpole Quay and had a great time. We weren’t organised enough to book ahead, and so there wasn’t space for all of us sadly. I’ve been kayaking here before, and can highly recommend it. It’s open for anyone over 8, all equipment is provided, and there are even hot showers in the changing rooms.

All you have to take is your swimming costume, towel and shoes (which will get wet) and remember which way round to put on your wetsuit. The sandy beaches around Stackpole are widely recognised as some of the best in the UK, and the estate itself is worth a visit.

Lizzie and the rest of the group kayaked from Stackpole Quay via various coves and caves to beautiful Barafundle beach, where we met them. They then set off back to Stackpole Quay, and popped in to the Boathouse on the Quay for a cream tea.

At the end of the day 13 year old Tilly said that her favourite bit had been kayaking through the caves, 11 year old Elsie was delighted with the luminous seaweed she’d found, and both girls taught us a lot about jellyfish and barnacles which they’d learnt from their instructor during the afternoon.
