Review of Bluestone National Park Resort

As you may have noticed, since Monday we have been having the time of our lives at the Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire. Whilst I have updated you on our activities and adventures each day, I wanted to provide a full and thorough review now that we’re home.  I’ve broken it down into sections, so that if there is a particular thing that you are interested in, you can jump straight to it using the CTRL + F function on your browser.

Wow, what a day

Today has been another hectic yet fantastic day at Bluestone National Park. We started off the morning with messy play for both children. Of course, the idea was that they could get messy. All the children got messy, within reason. Only my two took it to this extreme.  The messy play was great, everything was edible and there were a variety of things to do including painting, non-Newtonian fluid (cornflower solution), glittery things, jelly, custard and water.  Libby took it all very seriously, as she tends to do.  Lia also had fun, causing both mess and chaos in her own…

We’re on an adventure!

This morning, for the first time since having Lia last May, I had three whole hours to myself when I wasn’t working. As you can imagine, I used my time wisely, enjoying a spa at the Bluestone National Park resort in Pembrokeshire.  On arrival, I had a short consultation before being given a luxurious robe, towel and slippers and being shown to the changing rooms to get into my swimming costume to use the spa facilities.  The changing rooms were so luxurious I had to take a quick photo. I spent an incredibly relaxing two hours in the two steam…

Wow, what a day!

Today, it must be said, didn’t start well. In fact if I’m honest, the problems started late last night when we realised that the MOT on our car had expired. We were due to go to Bluestone National Park resort in Pembrokeshire this morning, approximately a three hour journey.  Mercifully, I managed to book it in last minute at Halfords. Considering I booked it at around midnight, I was able to get an appointment for first thing in the morning. I then ended up working until 4 am, giving me just under three hours sleep before getting up at 7…

We’re off to Bluestone National Park Resort!

We have been lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to have a midweek break at the fabulous Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire in return for a review on my blog. As you can imagine, we are all beyond excited. Today, I’m finishing a bit of work off (nothing like leaving it to the last minute) and hubby is taking charge of the packing. The girls are generally getting over excited with Lia on the cusp of crawling, just to ensure that our holiday is a little more chaotic than it would otherwise be. Pluto and Jamer are resigning…

All inclusive holidays Plutonium Sox style

So you’ve read the title and you can be forgiven for assuming that we’re off to sunnier climes, escaping this unseasonably dismal British weather and spending a week lying by a swimming pool. Husband, baby and I topping up our tans, being waited on hand and foot and putting on a stone over the course of the week owing to the free food and gin.  Er, no. Traditional all inclusive holidays were great in my early twenties when I didn’t know any different. My late twenties to early thirties were a time for travelling the world and now, rapidly approaching…
