7 Reasons To Book A Winter Break
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.
Why Book A UK Winter Getaway?
A holiday in the UK? In Winter? Yes! If you haven’t booked one yet, you're definitely missing out. A break isn't just about sitting on a beach (we have these if you need them) it's also about getting out and exploring your surroundings and Pembrokeshire in winter, just like the other seasons, is a special and beautiful place. So different from the other seasons, we think you'll fall in love with it all over again.
If you aren't a convert to winter holidays yet, then these reasons might just convince you!
Chill Out Time
It might be the most wonderful time of the year but, Christmas is usually pretty busy too. With social gatherings, present shopping, and endless parties – the festive season can leave your family feeling exhausted just as the New Year starts.
A short break before or after could is 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 and helping you switch off from it all. 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!
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.
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.
Children Love Winter
From splashing in puddles to getting muddy in the woods on a crisp afternoon, children love getting outdoors in the wintertime.
Wrap up warm and head out into the 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 the resort.
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 the 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.
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 Coast National Park, a jaw-dropping spectacle any time of the year.
A Different Type Of Break
A Winter Break is a completely different experience from 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 teeming with different wildlife and nature; you can enjoy a hot chocolate next to open fire in the Tafarn and seasonal craft activities. Pack your wellies and some warm clothes and prepare to turn the clock back to your childhood.
Don’t Miss The Winter Lights
The Winter Lights Festival returns to Bluestone from January to March (check Winter Lights for the exact dates) 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. The light show in the village and craft workshops ensure the experience carries on across the resort.
