The Man's Birthday Weekend at Bluestone


It was the other half's birthday a few weeks ago so I decided to treat him (and the kids) to a long weekend at the lovely Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales. I'd noticed a lot of good reviews and write ups from quite a few different bloggers so thought why not give it a go and see what all the fuss is about. I'm glad we did as it really was fab.

Bluestone is a lot bigger than I thought it would be hence why I'm very thankful that we hired a golf buggy to drive around in before we arrived. You can book tons of activities and extras on the Bluestone website when you've confirmed and paid for your accommodation. It's well worth having a look and doing this prior to arriving as the park can get quite busy. I even purchased a food welcome hamper so that we would have something to eat for us in the self catering lodge. Someone forgot to put it in our lodge though for our arrival so after a few phone calls and a visit from a park ranger we were all good to go.

Luckily for us, the weekend we arrived, it actually wasn't busy at all and I'd only booked Logan into one activity but managed to book him in for lots more at his request. The staff at Bluestone are great and couldn't have been more accommodating, even to the point that the lovely Iwan (who was working in the Adventure Centre) went out of his way and stayed on after his shift to help Logan. The other half and I couldn't have been more thankful.

The food in the resort was lovely and not at all overpriced, the little shops were great if you needed any supplies and there was plenty to do and see including the fab Blue Lagoon swimming pool. All in all it was a fantastic weekend where the sun shined all day. It was actually like being abroad really. There was never a dull moment and we were all knackered by the end of our stay. 

Here's a few photos to show you what we got up to.
