November Reopening - Updated 5th November 2020
We are really pleased to be reopening to guests living in Wales on Monday, 9th November. The Bluestone team has worked incredibly hard to put together this year’s Christmasland Chronicles festive journey– and we can’t wait to welcome our guests to be part of it.
Our utmost priority continues to be the health and wellbeing of our guests and staff. It is vital that we are all - our loyal guests and hardworking staff - aware of the important role that we each have to play.
Please note:- Current Government guidance from this date states you will only be able to share holiday accommodation with the people that you live with.
You can be assured that we continue to assess and review every area of the resort, as we have done since our re-opening in July. We have now increased our covid-secure measures even further, including:
- Reviewed and amended activities across the resort, in consultation with our local public protection team, to maximise covid safety
- Enhanced staff training in Covid secure protocols
- Reusable 3-ply branded masks issued to each team member, alongside enhanced hygiene packs
- Increased leadership reviews and support of the operation across the resort
- Enhanced support for staff, including through our wellbeing program which is managed by our People Services Team
- Introduction of a team of monitors to support social distancing, for your comfort and safety
It is also necessary – and vitally important – for you, our guests, to make sure that you are familiar with our Guest Charter which asks for your assistance too. We have developed the Charter to show our commitment to you, and we would appreciate if you could take some time to read it before your visit to understand the part we need you, our guests, to play to help keep yourselves, other guests, and our staff as safe as possible.
The aim of the Charter is to ensure your comfort and safety – so you can enjoy the Bluestone you know and love, while keeping yourselves and others as safe as possible as well.
- Always observe social distancing of 2 meters
- Wash your hands regularly
- Wear a face covering in public indoor areas
- Follow all relevant Welsh Government guidance and measures (please read the Welsh Government's FAQs)
- Do not travel to Bluestone if you, or any member of your party, is feeling unwell
The measures apply both on the resort, and out and about in the wider area. Full details of the Charter can be found at:
Welsh Government Advice
It is essential that our guests are aware of the advice, guidance, and laws in Wales and act accordingly. We are strictly following the measures set out by the Welsh Government (please read the Welsh Government's latest FAQs). It is our guests’ responsibility to comply with these regulations. If a Bluestone guest is known not to comply, then unfortunately they will be required to leave the resort in order to help us to ensure the safety of our other guests and team.
If you feel unwell with coronavirus symptoms, are impacted by lockdown restrictions, or any government-imposed 14-day self-isolation or restricted movement requirement that coincides with your break, then please remember that you are covered by our Coronavirus Booking Guarantee.

We can't wait to see you for a magical, festive, Christmasland break – thank you for all your help and support to make this possible.
