9 highlights of our summer holiday at Bluestone

Our recent holiday to Bluestone, Wales was one of our most favourite holidays yet! It was our second as a family and we made so many wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. It was a long drive from where we live in Kent, especially with a teething toddler. However, it was more than worth it. Here are some of my highlights: View Post

Bluestone, Wales – The perfect family summer holiday

Bluestone, Wales – The perfect family summer holiday

Booking a holiday is always fun, I love the whole planning process and making an itinerary. We visited Bluestone in Pembrokeshire, Wales shortly before Christmas. However, we were invited back there last week and I was looking forward to seeing how much it differed in the summer! Our family loves a good staycation and there’s certainly no reason why you can’t have a great holiday in the UK.  View Post

On the Friday, we woke up to bright sunshine again. It seems to be a recurring theme that every time we go to Wales, the weather perks up just as we’re leaving. Typically, sun was forecast for at least the weekend afterwards.

As Dave was packing up everything, I took Autumn for a walk down to the village to see the advent countdown. There were notably fewer people and a fairly sombre mood. I could have happily stayed at Bluestone for far longer. I actually was on the brink of tears when we were leaving. View Post

Woohoo, this is my 200th blog post! I couldn’t let this slip by without a casual mention. I love that it’s happened to fall on this blog post. Our Christmas midweek break at Bluestone was so wonderful. I’ve really been enjoying reliving it on the blog this week!

By our fourth day at Bluestone, I was beginning to feel quite sad. The week had gone so fast! I wanted to visit Santa’s Workshop and Elftopia and do all the Christmassy things again!  View Post

Day three of our midweek break at Bluestone was arguably the day that I’d been most looking forward to! Unfortunately, when it arrived, we were all a bit tired and grouchy. Autumn had had a bad night with her teething and we felt the effects too.

However, we were looking forward to our activities for the day. Dave was booked in to go tree climbing in the morning. In the afternoon, we were booked in for Christmas activities! First, we were going to be taking a trip to Elftopia (Kingdom of the Elves). Afterwards, we were going to visit Santa’s Workshop. We were already feeling incredibly festive from all the Christmassy signs around the park and the Christmas lights in the village.  View Post
