We have just come back from bluestone where we spent a relaxing week in a Ramsey lodge. The accommodation was very spacious and included 2 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a good sized living area upstairs. It really was a 'home from home' and had everything you might need for a self catering holiday (although would recommend taking your own dishwasher tablets and loo roll as those supplied ran out quickly.)
We travelled with a 2 year old who particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and outdoor childrens play area for under 6's. We visited both of these every day, and they were fantastic.
Of the available restaurants we only ate at Camp Smokey which has a scenic forest location. Burgers were very good, sides ok. Service was friendly and the location is great for watching others taking part in the high wire activities.
Check in and out was the easiest I have experienced anywhere. No queues and straight in and out both times. We hired a buggy which our toddler loved. Only downside was we weren't aware the buggy hire place closed at 7pm on Fridays, so we missed out on the first evenings hire by 10 mins which was a shame. It would have been great to know this in advance, but only a minor complaint as we picked it up no problem first thing.
Outside of Bluestone would recommend Tenby beaches and Folly Farm, for toddlers. Both great days out and nearby.
Overall, highly recommended and would love to return someday.
