Yesterday I shared Check in and Day 1 at Bluestone Wales.
Today I’m sharing with you the rest of our week. starting with how well we slept in our Ramsey lodge and the bedrooms.
The Ramsey lodge has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both have ensuites. The twin room has a wet room while the double has a shower over the bath. Both bedrooms have lovely dark heavy wood furniture, you know the furniture that is built to last. In fact upstairs the dining table is the same and my toddler couldn’t move the chairs at all.
A couple of weeks ago we headed off to Bluestone Wales. A National Park Resort in the beautiful countryside of Pembrokeshire. Becoming a blogger over three years ago, has given us many opportunities and when we were invited over to Bluestone it was our most exciting yet.
We were due to arrive at Bluestone on the Monday after a fun busy weekend that started off at 3 am on the Saturday morning. You see we were heading up to Derbyshire to see Mr B’s Nan who is 102 and wanted to take her out for lunch, so an early start from Cornwall was needed! On the Sunday morning we drove across the Peak District to Manchester for BlogOn. We knew the hardest part of the drive would be from Manchester to Bluestone so we were up early again on Monday morning.
When opting for a somewhere to visit which all of the family can enjoy, it can be a harder task than first thought. This can mainly be due to having children who have completely different tastes or are different ages. Although a staycation may not be your first thought when planning a holiday or trip somewhere, it can often be a lot easier to spend a few days away somewhere a little closer to home.
Wales has attracted families for years, mainly due to the allure of the outdoors and landscapes just waiting to be explored. North Wales is home to an array of incredible attractions and points of interest which serve as the perfect family day out which everyone will enjoy. So, whether you are looking at staying in Conwy holiday parks or are local to the area, below, you will find a range of family-friendly things to do in North Wales.
While I am sitting here writing this blog post on my 2019 Travel Bucket List. I’m sitting in a gorgeous wooden lodge in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Isn’t it funny that while you are on holiday you always think and plan your next escape?
Mr B and I were looking at holiday destinations this afternoon while it was raining and blowing a hooly outside our lodge, dreaming of where to take the kids next year. We have been discussing whether to keep to the UK or to go abroad.
Do we go somewhere hot? like Spain? Mr B was in fact in Marbella only in June for work and loved it!
Or do we go for somewhere breathtakingly beautiful like Iceland? I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights and stay in an Ice Hotel. I have to say I’m more of a cold weather person. The sun and heat don’t agree with my fair skin and red hair!

When I was a kid I loved camping, it all started off as soon as I could walk I loved to make dens. We had a row of trees in my parents garden that used to make one end of the camp, then we would use the windbreak (from when we went to the beach) for the other side. The top used to be an old bedsheet we would tie to the trees. Many an hour was spent in our camp! I was a proper outdoorsy child, you could always find me playing with stones and in the mud!
It’s the start of the Summer holidays so you may be thinking about going abroad, or maybe staying home this year in your garden. Which ever you decide to do you may want to think about mosquitoes.
Lucky for you I have 3 to giveaway, but first here is a little about the Zap-It!
Did you know that scratching a mosquito bite may bring short-lived relief? but it also floods the bitten area with histamine causing swelling, incessant urges to scratch and a risk of damaging the skin’s surface, and therefore you could get an infection.
A safe, clinically tested way to deal with mosquitoes and other insect bites is to use Zap-It!
