Log Cabins In Wales – Bluestone National Park Resort, Narberth, Pembrokeshire.
If you’re looking for log cabins in Wales that have a little bit of added luxury then look no further than the Bluestone National Park Resort. Set within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the resort is within easy travelling distance of the ever-popular seaside town of Tenby, and the untamed wilderness of the Brecon Beacons. The natural beauty of the surrounding countryside encompasses seven special areas of conservation, a marine nature reserve, six national nature reserves, and 75 sites of special scientific interest.
Set in 500 acres, Bluestone boasts its own village, spa, adventure centre, and water park to keep both you and the kids entertained. If you want to test your mettle there’s also the Steep Ravine high ropes adventure course which features climbing, and zip wire opportunities. Meanwhile, Bluestone’s village features the Tafarn, a traditional Welsh pub, and a selection of restaurants, cafés, and shops. Featuring nine different styles of log cabin, the resort also features artist-style studios, and one and two bedroom cottages.
Luxurious log cabins
Log cabin accommodation is provided for various group sizes. For groups of four people the Caldey, Caldey Adapted (for guests with disabilities), and Ramsey deliver comfort and convenience, while for groups of up to six you could try the Gateholm or Skomer lodges. Larger groups are catered for by the Dinas, Caldey Connect, or Grassholm which all sleep up to six people. If you’re planning on bringing the entire extended family, the Dinas Bunkhouse sleeps up to 14. All lodges have internet access and a television with DVD player as standard, while some feature fully fitted kitchens with dishwashers, and outdoor decked areas complete with patio furniture.
Excellent resort activities
If you’re in the mood for some pampering then try the Well Spa, where trained-therapists will attend your mind, body, and spirit and which features saunas and steam rooms, along with more advanced therapeutics. While you’re relaxing in the spa, why not pack the kids off to the Adventure Centre or Blue Lagoon Water Park? The Adventure Centre features a LEGO room, NRG zone, and a sky trail where they can enjoy all the thrills of rope climbing safely, and under trained supervision. Alternatively, they might prefer the Blue Lagoon Water Park with its enclosed flume rides, and indoor wave machine. In any case, you’ll know they’ll be getting some good exercise while still having loads of fun.
If you fancy an excursion away from the resort then why not take a trip to Tenby – an incredibly popular resort in its own right – featuring miles of long sandy beaches to the north, east, and south. This medieval-walled town was originally a busy trading port exporting goods including wool, coal, and canvas and was where the first oranges were imported into Wales in the 16th century! The town itself features Victorian-esque styled restaurants, shops, cafés, and bars – often painted in vibrant pastel colours – all of which are interconnected by ancient cobbled streets.
If you fancy some more strenuous exercise then why not visit the Brecon Beacons, which has the tallest mountain in south Wales – Pen y Fan (886m). The Brecon Beacons also has heathland, waterfalls, and caves to explore, with a wide variety of related activities including walking, mountain biking, hand gliding, and caving. If you’re feeling adventurous then why not walk some of the 100 mile Beacons Way? It’s the first path to run the entire length of the Brecon Beacons range. If, like me, you’re after an easy life then the Bluestone National Park Resort has more than enough to keep you as busy or as relaxed as you want for your entire stay.
