Four reasons why you should book a summer break at Bluestone

By Kathryn Slade

These longer, sunnier days are leaving us all dreaming of our summer holidays, spending time outdoors, relaxing by the coast and enjoying time together. A holiday spent with us means that you can do all of this and so much more. Here are four reasons why you should stop dreaming and start planning your ideal summer holiday today.  

1. Pembrokeshire has been voted the UK’s best holiday destination

Of course we’ve known this for years, but Countryfile have only gone and made it official in this year’s awards! We’ve been welcoming visitors to the county for ten years now and have become a dab hand at showing new folk around. If you can’t decide which of the county’s 50 beaches to explore, then be sure to ask a member of staff. 98% of Bluestone’s staff live in the county so they’ll know the best places to go and will be happy to recommend.  

In 2017, Pembrokeshire beaches scooped a total of 56 awards, making it top of the charts in both England and Wales. 

• 30 Seaside Awards
• 14 Green Coast Awards
• 12 Blue Flags

There are 186 miles of coastline to discover, so you probably won’t have time to see it all. Not to worry though, you’ll just have to make the most of our £50 rebooking offer and explore the rest next time! 

2. Lodges to fit the whole family


Whether you’re planning your first holiday with your little one in a comfortable cottage, or a family reunion, we have a lodge to suit every occasion.

The St David’s lodges are perfect for those with young families with its purpose built play room. 

The Pembroke’s are popular for family get-togethers, there’s plenty of space and the balcony is perfect for that all important picture to capture the moment!

Our luxurious lodges are all self-catering but the cupboards are stocked with all the utensils you’d find at home, so you can rustle up a feast with ease. The Pembrokeshire produce available in Newton’s is perfect if you’re planning on enjoying that summer essential BBQ.

Or just head to one our restaurants and let us do the work for you? You are on holiday after all! 

3. Free Blue Lagoon and Adventure Centre

During your stay you’ll get complimentary access to the Blue Lagoon Water Park and the Adventure Centre! 

The Blue Lagoon Water Park is a haven for water babies, young and old. Your little ones can make a splash in Nippers Cove, and the big kids will love the flumes and wave pool. The Water Park will be open until 9pm during the summer holidays, so you can enjoy the evenings in our subtropical climate after filling up on Free Range Fun.

Your children will love the Adventure Centre, start your day here with breakfast in the Wild Wood Cafe. The Circus Zone is soft play heaven for little ones, and the mini golf area will keep the big kids entertained for hours! 

If you see an activity that you hadn’t pre-booked and want to add it to your stay, then the team at the reception are on hand to help. You can also call into the Booking Office in the village. 

4. Join us for the Bluestone Summer Festival

Summer Festival

Our 2018 Summer Festival is all about celebrating Free Range Fun! Starting on June 29th and running through to the 3rd of September, there’ll be specially themed activities, new seasonal menus in the restaurants and an exciting Green Man Dinner Show! 

In the summer craft workshops your children can make their own Green Man Garden, create a Willow Kite and design their own festival mask. 

Keep and eye out for our pop up events during your stay as fun and games will follow whenever you hear the magical music!

We know you haven’t stayed yet so you won’t want to think of this, but we have a real treat in store for the last night of your break. Join us for the Green Man Dinner Show at the Adventure Centre and discover the story of the ancient woodland and the Wild Things. Remember your crafty bits and bobs because after your delicious pudding you’ll follow the Green Man Parade down to the village for fun and games. Our live band will swing the Summer Festival!
