The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group

The Outdoor Charter Group promotes the sustainable use of Pembrokeshire’s landscapes for recreational and leisure activities.

The aim of the Charter is to ensure that adventurous activities do not negatively impact on Pembrokeshire’s beautiful coastline, local communities and the wide variety of wildlife that call the area ‘home’.




How Does the Group Work?

The ‘Outdoor Charter’ asks organisations and individuals to operate to an established standard which focuses on:

  • Protecting the natural environment
  • Operating safely
  • Showing consideration for local communities
  • Reducing wider environmental impact and sharing this with others
  • Attend our training events which we hold regularly to develop and share best practice methods

Pembrokeshire is the perfect playground to get out and get active. View the best adventures with the best providers.

What People Say About Us

“If you fancy going climbing, kayaking, surfing or coasteering with an organised provider…make sure they are members of the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group. Their instructors commit themselves to managing groups in the countryside in a way which reduces disturbance and impacts on habitats and species, helping to make exciting activities sustainable.” 

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

“Whether you’re looking to take to the water and try your hand at coasteering, kayaking and surfing, or stick to dry land and explore on foot or by bike, opting for a business that is part of the Outdoor Charter Group means you’ll also be doing your bit to make sure the area is just as awe-inspiring for the next group of adventurers.”

Green Traveller

“Having the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group in place makes 2 way communication much easier and passing on NRW conservation messages through to the wider public is important. It enables a consistent management approach across Pembrokeshire with impartiality needed for any conflict management. The development of best practice using a partnership approach is also a key positive from NRW.”

Paul Cuyler, Natural Resources Wales

“The relationship building, network and communication that the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter has provided is invaluable. Having members take out 100,000s of young people, it is important from a National Trust perspective that they know this is being carried out in the right way. The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter collaborative approach and independent conflict management gives a confidence that activities are being carried out sustainably. The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter is viewed as a model for best practice on a UK level by the National Trust.”

Jonathon Hughes, National Trust Property Manager for Pembrokeshire
