Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales - Part 2

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.

Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales – Part 1

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.

Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales

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.

Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents

The Summer holidays are now here so it’s the best chance to make the most of spending quality time together as a new family. Yet where to you go on holiday with babies and toddlers?

With the help of Babythingz — a leading UK supplier of cute cosytoes for prams and buggies — we’ve discovered the top child-friendly holiday destinations for you to choose from, as well as tips for travelling with young ones.

Cornwall

I would have to list my home county as the top child friendly destination of course, due to its beautiful coastline with peaceful and exciting spots to discover. With it still being within the UK it’s easier to cut down on travel time, especially if you have a fussy baby.

There are lots of secluded holiday cottages to let down here which are great for families with crying babies and boisterous loud toddlers. If you choose accommodation close to the beach it’s practically a free day out also. Cornwall has lots of places visit like Newquay Zoo and the Minack Theatre, which is based in Porthcurno and features comedy puppet shows for kids.

You also have The Eden Project and Dairyland to explore and have fun. But for me the best place to visit in Cornwall is the beach. Cornwall has many beaches with different facilities at each. My favourite is Perranporth, not only is it just 10 minutes from my house but it’s very child-friendly as well. The car park is literally beside the beach so great with the kids. It’s a very sandy beach with a pub on the beach as well as a restaurant and a little bistro overlooking the sea.

It could be just a trip to the beach or around town, but it could also be a much longer trip like going abroad or driving to the other end of the country.

Wherever you are going, you need to be prepared for all eventualities, especially if you are travelling with toddlers!
