Bluestone Holiday Park - Wales

Bluestone - Luxury Holiday Park (Hoseasons Ultimate!)

Bluestone Holiday Park is in the Pembrokeshire countryside, in deepest Wales. We decided to take our summer holiday at Bluestone because of the quality of the park (it's a 5 star rated park). And because of the water park which is attached to the site.

Let the holiday begin

Although we couldn't get into our lodge until 4pm, we decided to arrive early, turning up at reception at about 11am. We hoped we would be able to make use of the facilities when we arrived; we weren't disappointed. Guests are allowed to use the facilities (the water park being the main draw) from 11am on the day of arrival.

Anyone who has stayed at a Center Parcs holiday park will recognize the layout here. Cars are not allowed on-site (apart from unloading at the start of the holiday, and loading up at the end of the holiday). With a large car park to abandon your vehicle in.

First stop - the Blue Lagoon

So off we set, on foot, to the water park - known as the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon was everything the brochure promised. There is a lazy river which snakes out of the sub tropical surroundings of the Blue Lagoon building, and into the Welsh rain! There are also four flumes to try. Two which take you into complete darkness; I never managed to make it all the way down these without making an involuntary "ahhh...". One of the other flumes is just very fast, while the forth flume takes you outside and allows you to swim in a small outside pool, before rejoining the flume for the final descent into a plunge pool back inside the dome. As both of our children are over the 110cm minimum height, we could all share the flume experience.

Luxury lodges too

After our fill of aqua adventure, we headed for our lodge. There are a couple of hundred lodges on Bluestone, with the Caldey Lodge being one of the smallest. The Caldey Lodge has two bedrooms, ideally we go for 3 bedrooms so the children can have there own bedroom, and therefore find less to argue about. However we plumped for the Caldey due to the price of accommodation. The lodge is very tastefully furnished - with leather sofas, comfortable beds, plenty of space in the living room, and a wet room.

Bike hire and buggy hire

Bluestone has cycle hire, to help you around the park. There are also electric buggies to hire. We didn't pre-book any of these, so had problems hiring a bike. If you definitely require cycle hire or buggy hire, I'd advise you to book before you arrive. We did, however, mange to hire an electric buggy towards the end of the holiday. This cost £20 for 24 hours, and was one of the best £20s I've ever spent! The children loved riding about in the electric buggy, and loved having a little steer too.

Should you come to Bluestone Holiday Park?

Bluestone draws lots of parallels with Center Parks - water parks, no driving on the site, cycle paths, etc. So if you like Center Parcs, you should get on well at Bluestone too.

How can I book?

Bluestone Holiday Park, along with many other lodges and parks, is available through Hoseasons Holidays.

Oh, hang on. I've just realised you can't book Bluestone with Hoseasons anymore, however you can book directly with the park. So try Bluestone Holiday Park, that should sort you out.
