Do Something Different in 2016!

By Kathryn Slade Management Buy Out

I still can’t believe that 2016 is here! This year is a little bit special as it’s a leap year meaning that we get an extra day to explore and adventure. It’s handy for us at Bluestone as those two are top of our list of things to achieve in the New Year!

We are spoilt for choice here as there are loads of great activities on resort and there is plenty to do around Pembrokeshire too. Throughout January we are going to be sharing our ideas so that you can Do Something Different in 2016.

Learn to Relax and Unwind

Our Well Spa here at Bluestone is perfect for those wanting to relax especially if it is your first time in a spa situation. Our highly trained and friendly therapists are able to advise so that you can benefit from the perfect ESPA treatment and really feel the benefits afterwards.

Why not try one of our overnight spa packages for some pure luxury on our Spa Sleep Over package from £125 for 1 person and £225 for 2 people. Enjoy the benefits of our Celtic Spa Experience in the thermal rooms and a luxurious 50 minute treatment of your choice. Have a healthy lunch at Caffi Mor and in the evening, a sumptuous three course dinner at one of our restaurants and after your day of pampering enjoy a restful night’s sleep in one of our contemporary studio apartments with continental breakfast on departure.

Experience the height of excitement!

If you have a fear of heights why not try and conquer it in 2016! Take a leap and whizz through the trees on our Sky Wire course. There are four wires in total which range from 60 to 250 ft in length! Our skilled instructors are on hand to make sure that you have the confidence to go and enjoy yourselves too! Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Here are our suggestions for a great Family break at Bluestone!

Make 2016 the year for spending time with your family exploring together- do something different! Regardless of age Bluestone is the perfect base to make this happen whether it’s your first holiday as a family or a long overdue reunion. With lodges that sleep up to 14 people we can find you the perfect accommodation for your break and the perfect activities too.

A bit of Family Competition 

Take to the lake for Family Raft Wars in the summer! This hour long activity is great for fun and brings out the competitive sides in everyone! You will split into teams and are responsible for a budget which you can use to bid on items to help you make the winning raft. Once your masterpiece is complete the race is on to get to the other side of the lake. Losers cook dinner?

Explore the beaches of Pembrokeshire

While you are in Pembrokeshire the beaches around Bluestone are a must visit! You are really spoilt for choice and every beach is unique so there is something for everything. Younger families can take on a Sandcastle building challenge on Tenby and older families can hire some surfboards and learn to ride the waves at Newgale.


Learn how to Arch

Let’s all admit that Archery looks really cool. It also has some fantastic health benefits too including strength and improved focus! On your trip to Bluestone you can learn how to arch with the help of our experts during our 45 minute sessions. Go on a luxurious holiday and pick a new skill in the process... perfect.  

Horse Riding with Marros

Last summer I crossed learning to ride a horse off my bucket list with the help of Marros Riding School in Pendine. It is a very popular with guests and it is easy to see why when you arrive at this family run business. Marros Riding Centre offers woodland rides for individuals or groups and beach rides for experienced riders!


Try a new adventure with Celtic Quest! Pembrokeshire Coasteering is an outdoor activity exploring our beautiful coast at sea level. All Coasteering sessions with Celtic Quest are tailored to suit the group’s abilities and can include cliff jumping, scramble climbing, adventure swimming, rock hopping and more. See Pembrokeshire from a new perspective!
