This stay was complimentary of Bluestone Resort in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
Bluestone Resort in Wales has long been a popular place for a family holiday in the beautiful Pembrokeshire National Park. With green countryside, blue seas and yellow daffodils trumpeting the arrival of spring, this short break was a great opportunity to blow away the cobwebs and enjoy the free-range fun Bluestone has to offer.
Set amongst the rolling green hills of Pembrokeshire are Bluestone’s wooden lodges with different sizes to accommodate parties up to 12. Tastefully designed to be a home from home, this 8-berth lodge was very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Bluestone Village Facilities
At the centre of Bluestone Holiday Resort is The Village, a hub of well stocked shops for groceries, nibbles and toys, as well as a bakery and restaurants. There’s also a Health Spa for adults who want to enjoy some pampering during their stay.
Bluestone Resort Outdoor Activities
Bluestone Resort is well equipped for an active family holiday in Wales with activities like archery, clay shooting and an assault course. There’s also a steep ravine for a thrilling zip line experience or high ropes challenge through the dense forest.
Bluestone Resort also has access to a nature trail where you’ll find an old Iron Age fort, trickling streams and a lake.
The whole family loved the Adventure Centre and Blue Lagoon (indoor waterpark) that staying guests have access to. The flumes were fantastic fun, and the heated wave pool had water jets and a lazy river.

Dining options in Bluestone Resort
In the base of a ravine is Camp Smokey, a secluded cabin in the thick woodland where you can enjoy dinner or rest beside a crackling fire and toast marshmallows.

Other dining options in Bluestone Resort include The Knight’s Tavern, a themed medieval pub in the village, as well as Farmhouse Grill.
The Farmhouse Grill is full of hearty dishes using locally sourced meats. You could tuck into a bowl of salad and fresh bread before or with your main meal too.
One of the benefits of staying at Bluestone Resort with family is the access to other attractions in Pembrokeshire, such as Oakwood Theme Park and Folly Farm.
