As a family we were super excited about our trip to Wales with Visit Swansea Bay during half term. I have to confess I really didn’t know very much about the area before our visit, but I’ve returned feeling completely inspired by all the things there are to do in and around Swansea Bay, the beautiful award winning beaches and the stunning countryside they have.

Perhaps I should say, we were invited to the Kingdom Of The Elves as Bluestone takes on a whole different persona in the winter, and some very special visitors play host to the guests that are staying there. The elves, along with Santa Claus, take up residence at Bluestone, turning it into a magical festive bonanza of Christmas fun and activities, for the whole family to enjoy. The two
Wales is a beautiful holiday destination, and offers some of the most beautiful beaches that the UK has to offer. There are several holiday options available for visitors, but the most relaxing has to be a stay in a Welsh holiday cottage. They are perfect for families, groups or couples looking for Wales holiday cottages, and I’ve picked 4 of the best for enjoying the sea and sand, and setting your own holiday itinerary.
When we took our holiday in Pembrokeshire, one thing I really wanted to do was visit Folly Farm Park. While we were staying at Bluestone National Park Resort, we were lucky enough to be able to spend lots of time with our friends, Kaz and Pickle from Ickle Pickles Life and Travels.

As a surprise, Kaz very kindly arranged for us all to have
