Christmasland 2020

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Join us in November and December for our festive extravaganza, Christmasland, where we'll be unveiling the Christmasland Chronicles.

This year we're going back to the beginning, to discover how Christmasland first began and to celebrate the greatest gift of all, time with those we love.



A message from Father Christmas:

"Now, more than ever, quality time and togetherness are extremely important. A time for Enchantment, for Love, and for Family- The foundations of Christmasland and the very meaning of being an ELF.

That is why, this year, I invite you on a journey, to follow in my footsteps learning how I grew from a boy named Claus to become the Father of Christmas. Together with my Christmasland Chronicles book, which is your passport to adventure, I will be there to guide you along the way and I look forward to seeing you at Bluestone very soon!"


Christmasland Journey 2020

Your magical Christmas journey will take you on an adventure across the resort, where from your lodge, to the ancient woodland and Serendome, you'll feel wrapped in the Christmas spirit.


Father Christmas:

"Enter the Enchanted Wood, home of the Coed (The Toymaker Elves), and discover their secret woodland workshops- which can only be seen by those who truly believe.

"Along the trail you will find illuminated workshops from toy testing, dream and design, whittle and weld, the colour factory and mistletoe magic, finishing with the Sleigh workshop where you can capture your very own memory on the sleigh itself.

"Don't forget to head to the Tinkers Tool Shed and collect your stamp and your essentials for the magical adventure."


Stop One: The Toymaker's Trail

We all knew there was something magical about the Nature Trail at Bluestone, but this Christmas for the first time it’ll come alive for our Christmasland celebrations.

Wrap up warm, wear your best Christmas jumper with pride, and step into a magical portal, where the story of Christmas is told before your eyes.

Peep through the doors to the workshop, listen out for the sound of the elves busy at work, and enjoy the glow as the woodland comes alive.

We’d love to tell you more but we can’t spoil the secret surprises that are in store!


Look Out For: The Coed Elves

These Elves are amongst the most magical of all Elfkind, with their little houses hidden in the most special of woods. They work year-long creating the perfect presents in their workshops which can only be seen by those truly good.

With rosy red cheeks and round little bellies, they’re led by the Tinker- who wears wishing wellies. Hard to spot with our human eyes, they use Christmas magic to shrink down in size. They make all the toys with laughter and play, the sack for the presents, and Santa's special sleigh.


Visit Tinker's Toolshed

Our friendly Rangers down at HQ have made way for Tinker and his friends this Christmas. Before you step along the magical Christmas journey pop in to to see them at Tinker’s Toolshed, for all your essential adventure ware.

You’ll find Christmas delights to tantalise your taste buds, gifts to light up the night, and delicious hot chocolate for that lovely festive fuzzy feeling.


Father Christmas:

"This Christmas there's something we feel you should know, the village of Bluestone has a new kind of glow. A flashing, twinkling and magical sight. With tales of a nose that will light up your night.

"Our team have grown antlers and a shine to their nose, filled with excitement from their head to their toes. Excited to serve you as the stars shine above, to create magical moments filled with care and with love."


Stop Two: The Reindeer Village

Experience the warmth of a Bluestone Christmas with your family. Head to the village to see Rudolph and his friends, they need your help to make sure there are enough love and belief across the world to make the magical sleigh fly!

Warm-up with a delicious hot chocolate and enjoy that festive feeling with the ones that matter the most.


Enjoy The Glow: Rudolph Light Show

Wrap up warm, grab a signature Christmasland Hot Chocolate and cwtch together with your family in the heart of the village to witness the power of Rudolph's shiny red nose.

With your help it might shine brighter than any other day, lighting the village most magically!


Father Christmas:

"Welcome to the secret world of winter wonder. Enter the Snow Globe and enjoy fun-filled magical moments created by the Eira Elves, who bring the snow to life!

"Enjoy culinary delights from the Christmas Market, play at the Christmas Fairground, craft in the winter workshop, and listen to festive Welsh traditions."



Stop Three: The Snow Globe

Step into our giant Snow Globe this Christmas, as we transform Serendome into a glistening Winter Wonderland.

Under our twinkling, transparent roof you'll be able to explore our festive village with all the traditional, Christmas trimmings!


Don't Miss: The Christmas Markets

A Special Welcome: A Message From Santa

Every lodge and cottage will get a very special message from Father Christmas on their arrival - his Christmas Chronicles.

Personally written just for our guests, this magical tale will not only help you map out your Christmasland adventure, but you can take your copy home to cherish and always remind you of your magical stay.

Father Christmas and his Postal Elves will be travelling around the resort every Wednesday and Saturday night to collect your Letters to Santa.
