Bluestone, West Wales. Family holiday day 3

Another beautiful day in Pembrokeshire. The weather had been kind to us so far. It was reasonably mild for January and more importantly it was dry. A trip down into the village was planned for this morning to explore that area. The village is really pretty and I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures of it.

They were just due to start the new park last time we visited and the children highly approved of the new park. In particular they loved the boat. There are some lovely views from the top of the hill.

We headed over to the adventure centre for some play in the Treetops adventure playground. It is a massive outdoor adventure playground, just indoors. There is also a soft play section for under 6’s, mini golf and a bouncy castle. There are also other activities available that need to be booked and paid for. Check website for details. We all loved exploring the adventure playground although I’m not going to lie it was a better workout than the gym. There are so many different sections and ways to go.

Upstairs is the Woodland cafe where you can get some food or drinks. As we have a picky bunch we tend to mostly take picnics wherever we go anyway. Downstairs in the adventure centre are picnic tables and you can eat your own food here. Upstairs just through the Woodland cafe you will find the Circus Zone. A free play area for toddlers/preschool children. Little little particularly liked the car ride.

There was so much to keep the children entertained (and the grown ups worn out!) that 3 hours passed in no time at all. We returned to the lodge for tea and to swap into our wellies ready to see the Winter Lights Trail after dark.

The Winter Lights Trail was absolutely beautiful and truly enchanting. I loved seeing all the different light displays and the fairy village made me feel like I was in Enid Blyton’s Enchanted Wood. There were some fun and interactive things to do along the way. If you go take your time to look at everything. Wellies or old shoes are advisable as it can be a tad muddy but the route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. The children and adults alike were in awe of all the wonderful lights. Sadly we didn’t time it quite right for Merlin’s show and we had to go back to the lodge as little little was exhausted with the days excitement.

What did we get up to on day 4? Find out here.
