Join us for the St David’s Hospice Care inaugural Triathlon event and raise funds to help local families.

If you have ever wanted to take up the challenge of a Triathlon event, this is the one for you, and if you are an experienced triathlete, we offer you the challenge of a sprint event.

The participants will have a safe, clean swim in the waters of the National Diving and Activity Centre (wet suits not compulsory) and then a lovely ride near the Welsh borders and Forest of Dean. The event is completed by an off road run along the footpaths around the Centre. With full safety support, electronic timing and a great atmosphere, this is an event not to be missed.

T-shirts to all finishers.

Wigwams now available at NDAC

New Wooden Wigwams arrive in ChepstowPhase two development works for the Wooden Wigwam Accommodation at NDAC Chepstow have just been completed on time, on budget and before Christmas – Now thats a first!

Over November and December we have been working hard on the site infrastructure and shipping in some more Wooden Wigwams for you to go glamping in!

The final wigwam unit arrived on site on Tuesday, just in time for the Christmas rush with the 2011 Scuba Santas event and NDAC Night Dive over the weekend of the 17th & 18th December 2011. This now brings our Wigwam village up to an impressive19 units.

We were not expecting the Wooden Wigwams to be such a runaway success, but they have proved to be very popular with divers and visitors to Chepstow. We started with six Wigwams back in February, this then grew to 10 units, then to 14 units and now 19 units in ten months!  Each of the Wooden Wigwams are hand made in Scotland then send via road down to NDAC some 600miles away! 

The Wooden Wigwams offer the ideal 4 season camping holiday or short break, for group’s families and couples. A great low cost alternative to youth hostels, B&Bs, self catering or camping. Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; secure and lockable the wigwams offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

If you are visiting us for Scuba Santas and the Winter Night Dive, why not make a full weekend of it and go glamping in style. The wigwams aregetting booked up quickly with this busy weekend, so book your wigwam accommodation now to avoid disappointment.

And there’s more!

We are pleased that so many of you have decided to support NDAC in such a big way and wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you.  The investment has also included another toilet and shower block in the Wigwam Village and a water treatment plant which will be operational before Christmas.

The total budget for the Wooden Wigwam accommodation we have in Chepstow is around £300k but we feel has been well worth it and from listening to what our customers have told us, you feel the same way.

Hope to see you soon . . .

You’re only a click of the mouse away from toasting marshmallows round your own camp fire and sleeping under the stars in the heart of the countryside. Book a Wigwam now>
