10 Ideas To Make This Your Best Summer Break Ever

By Bluestone 10 epic things to do at bluestone this summer

The long, golden British summer stretches ahead of you now with a few months of fun and freedom for your children.

There’s nothing wrong with cycle rides and barbecues, but why not use this summer to branch out, reconnect with nature and do something new? Something totally EPIC. To help inspire you, we’ve compiled a list of 10 ideas to make this your best summer break ever.

Here are a few things your family can try before the leaves start to turn and you have to wait a whole year.

1. Tree Climbing
Climb as high as you can – these are really big trees! The sense of achievement after the climb will be huge.

2. Raft Building
Make a better design than your opponents. Use your skills and keep paddling.

3. Whale & Dolphin Watching
Our offshore islands are considered some of the UK’s prime whale watching locations. So what are you waiting for?

4. Zip Wire
Overcome your fears, 60ft up and get your adrenalin pumping.

5. Visit Barafundle Bay
Barafundle Bay on the Pembrokeshire coast is spellbinding. You have to walk through a stone archway to find it, but once you do, you'll feel you've passed through some sort of mythical, mind-cleansing portal. Breathtaking.

6. A Medieval Tournament
It’s all about skill, speed and vision to gain victory on our Tournament Field.
Dads, prepare to eat humble pie – let the games begin.

7. A Free Range Summer Festival
You can samba drum, race coracles, learn street dance and circus skills with all kinds of messy fun for little ones. The ‘All Weather’ Festival explodes into action this year with a carnival of spectacular fun.

8. The Drop
Deep breath. You’re about 40ft up in the rafters. You’re about to drop!

9. Kayaking
Adventure along the foot of the spectacular Pembrokeshire sea cliffs.

10. Walk up the Preseli Hills
Amazing views on a clear day of much of south and west Wales and even Ireland’s Wicklow Hills. This is also the site from which the Stonehenge Bluestones were quarried and where we found inspiration for our name.
