Our Christmas Break at Bluestone

We have never been away at Christmas time before, not once. But with work being a bit stressful and all the upheaval we have gone through recently I couldn’t have been happier when Bluestone got in touch to see if we would like to stay for a few nights.

Christmas Holiday Fun
Christmas Holiday Fun

A holiday park with a difference, Bluestone is set in a beautiful National Park in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We loved Pembrokeshire last time we visited, and were familiar with the area There is loads to see and do, plenty of walking, attractions and a truly stunning coastline. We were so excited to be returning, especially as Bluestone had everything we needed, right there, there would be no additional travelling, spending or time. Just a few days to kick back and relax. Oh and Christmas was in full swing which was really exciting. All the December breaks included tickets to ‘The Kingdom of the Elves’.

Christmas Jumper Day & Chocolate

We joined in with Christmas Jumper Day today. I wore my jumper to work, L wore his to nursery and apparently wouldn’t take it off all day, even though he was really hot. Bless him, that’s dedication right there. The we all went to see the Christmas lights in Norwich this evening. But I think Cadbury might have just put us to shame. To celebrate Christmas Jumper Day, Cadbury has created the ultimate festive jumper knitted entirely from chocolate. Yes, knitted from chocolate.
