10 Reasons To Book A Summer Holiday

Are you thinking it might be better to stay on home soil this summer rather than holidaying abroad? Why we think so too.

The number of people choosing a ‘staycation’ summer break is growing all the time – avoiding the stress of overseas travel and enjoying the many benefits of holidaying in the UK.

We’ve got 10 reasons why your summer holiday should be spent right here in the UK at Bluestone.


Choose Bluestone For An Epic UK Summer Holiday


1. Pembrokeshire's Glorious Beaches

A beach makes a summer holiday and Pembrokeshire boasts over 50 beaches and with 11 holding the rank of a Blue Flag Beach, you're spoiled for choice.

While there are many beautiful stretches of coast line in Wales and the UK, Pembrokeshire is the only official coastal National Park. Thanks to the Park Authority's work, our beaches boast clean waters, clear sand, and have been lovingly protected and nurtured for generations to enjoy. It's not surprising then that many are considered not just the best in the UK, but the world.

That's pretty impressive for one little county and right at the heart of it, Bluestone is perfectly placed to explore all of these beautiful places - from coves, bays and havens, to long epic stretches, and traditional seaside towns.


2. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

If you want to spend your summer holiday walking and exploring the great outdoors then you can't beat the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Completely free to use, the 186-mile coast path takes you on an incredible journey around every inch of the beautiful coast line, through wonderous beaches, along towering cliffsides, and to magical places you can only reach on foot. It's a breathtaking adventure, that's unique to Pembrokeshire and definitely one that should be on your bucketlist.


3. Bring the Whole Family

There’s room for the whole family at Bluestone. Did you know our largest lodge sleeps up to 14 people? There is plenty of space for everyone to join in the summer fun together.


4. A Subtropical Paradise

We can guarantee that you’ll swim in a subtropical climate – right here on home soil. The Blue Lagoon Water Park here is filled with fun, what’s even better is as our guest you can swim to your heart’s content for free!


5. Activities Galore

There are oodles of activities to try during your stay. With woodland activities high up in the trees, to paddleboarding on the lake - whatever your idea of having fun in the great outdoors is - we've got it. 

There's something to suit all ages and tastes too. If you're creative, check out our summer craft sessions or what about going on an adventure in the woods and discovering how to explore the woodland? Or if you're just an all-out adrenaline junkie the high ropes is definitely for you. 


6. Nights Out Under The Stars

Lights don't go out until late (the sun we mean), so you can enjoy games on the hillside and explore the woodland in the early evening. With the sunsetting in the east, there are so many beautiful places to watch nature's greatest show. Choose the hill above the village, or why not head to the lake?

Or, as it's warm enough, when the sun goes down snuggle up under blankets outside your lodge and enjoy Pembrokeshire's beautiful clear sky to admire the stars.


7. Stress-Free

Relax on the journey here knowing that there will be no stressful checks to see if you have packed your passports for the hundredth time or got enough local currency. And when you get here? Exhale and enjoy a Free Range break in every sense of the world.


8. Forget Weather Worries


If the sun isn’t shining then you can still play the days away at our all-weather Serendome. With countless activities and places to eat and drink, we bring the outdoors, indoors.


9. Eating Out

A huge part of a summer break is the meals at the end of the day - where you get a chance to chat about everything you've done and plan for the next.

You also want to try something a little different when you're away, so you'll be pleased to know we have no chains on our on resort restaurants and all eateries have been designed to cover whatever mood you're in for - we've even got a Chippy food van - definitely a must for a summer break.


10. The Great Outdoors

Whether the sun's shining or not, the summer is the perfect time to get outside and try something new. Stay on resort and trying one of our many activities, or hit the Nature Trail and cycle paths.

Or, why not head out into Pembrokeshire?

Paddleboard at the beach, kayak down the Cleddau river; hike in the Preseli Hills or take a wildlife boat tour along the coast - there's so much to fill your days, you're never short of options.
