Welcome back to our UK Family Holidays series. Today Jess from Tantrums To Smiles blog recommends Bluestone in Wales as a superb place to get away from it all with the family.

Tantrums To Smiles are a family of four with two children aged 7 and 3 years old. They love Bluestone in Wales and think the resort gets the balance of relaxation and nature for the grown-ups and fun and activities for the kids just right. Bluestone is the kind of place you leave and immediately want to return. Everything about it is magical. There are 5 areas where Jess thinks Bluestone really stands out as being perfect for families:

  • Accommodation that has absolutely everything you could need
  • Plenty of parks and nature/woodland trails
  • Bookable activities for the kids (and big kids) that are reasonably priced
  • A huge variety of places to eat on site to suit all taste buds
  • There are both indoor and outdoor activities so you don't need to rely on the weather

You don't really need to leave resort but if you'd like to, there's a huge range of places to visit in the area. Jess particularly recommends paying Folly Farm a visit.

You can dine out or eat in at Bluestone and most families will probably do a mix of both. The accommodation has full size ovens, hobs and microwaves which makes eating in the lodge a lot easier. There are several restaurants on site including a pub, fish and chips and Italian. Camp Smokey is a real favourite which is a barbecue restaurant in the woods - you can smell the cooking for miles and it's always very tempting.

Jess's Top Tip: Hire a golf buggy if you don't like to walk or have young kids. Bluestone is set in a National Park and is huge and hilly. Cars are not allowed on site and activities such as swimming can be quite a walk from your lodge. The kids loved whizzing around in the golf buggies.

Thanks for this recommendation - I must admit, I've always fancied booking a holiday here but I've just never got around to it!
