Is a holiday on your Christmas list this year? It should be! January and February are the perfect times to get away with your family and a Winter Break could be just what you need to get through the colder months. If you haven’t booked one already, these reasons might convince you!

1. Chill Out Time 

It might be the most wonderful time of the year but, Christmas is usually pretty busy too. With school plays, present shopping and endless parties – the festive season can leave your family feeling exhausted just as the New Year starts. A short break could be the answer to get you feeling brand new again.

Holidays are known to be the perfect stress reliever and at Bluestone we’re masters in relaxation. With country walks, outdoor activities and the Well Spa all on your doorstep it’s almost impossible to leave without feeling refreshed and ready for the year ahead! 

2. Family Fun Together 

Struggling to find something to do as a family that everyone can enjoy? This can be particularly hard in the winter and, as a result, we end up spending more and more time apart. Throw in busy lives and schedules and it can feel like you hardly see your family at all.

So why not get away from it all on a short break? With family friendly activities, indoor adventure areas and a peaceful and tranquil setting, Bluestone is the perfect place for families to enjoy spending time together away from the distractions of everyday life. 

3. Cure The Winter Blues 

We all know January and February can be a struggle and knowing you have a fun break away to enjoy can make it much easier to get through the working week. A change of scenery, the chance to get out in the big outdoors and enjoying new adventures can be the ideal way to put that smile back on your face.

4. Kids Love Winter 

From splashing in puddles, to getting muddy in the woods on a crisp afternoon, children love getting outdoors in the winter time. Wrap up warm and head out into resort and you never know what you might discover. At Bluestone we have miles of nature trails, fields, playgrounds and so much more to explore so even if it is on the chilly side you’ll soon warm up from all the adventuring around resort.

5. Enjoy Whatever The Weather 

If you thought you had to go abroad for a proper family winter break then think again! Bluestone is an all-year, all-weather resort where fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes in. Every break includes unlimited use of the subtropical waterpark, the Blue Lagoon, where you can dive, swim and splash along flumes, the lazy river and the main pool.

There’s the indoor Adventure Centre, with climbing frames, soft play areas and different zones to explore - perfect for tiring out little legs. If you’re brave enough to venture outdoors, activities at the Steep Ravine and Tournament Field run throughout the winter months for fearless woodland warriors and then there’s the beautiful Pembrokeshire National Park, a jaw-dropping spectacle any time of the year. 

6. It’s A Different Type Of Break 

A Winter Break is a completely different experience to a getaway in the summer months and gives you the chance to try activities better suited to the colder weather. You might have visited the beach in August, but have you ever walked across the sand on a clear, sunny winter day?

At Bluestone our activities change with the season and we love celebrating the uniqueness of winter. The ever-changing woodland around the resort is teaming with different wildlife and nature; you can enjoy a hot chocolate next to an open fire in the Tafarn and seasonal craft activities. 

7. Don’t Miss The Winter Lights 

The Winter Lights Festival returns to Bluestone from January 6th to March 26th 2020 and you don’t want to miss it. The mesmerising, interactive light festival brings the ancient Bluestone forest alive in a beautiful glow. With a brand new tale, it’s a magical experience for the whole family to enjoy and the ideal way to spend those early winter nights. The magic isn’t confined to the forest either.
