Our trip to Bluestone national park is just 8 days away and I have to say that I am very excited, but also nervous about the weather.
As we are in the UK It will probably be very cold but there will also be a risk of snow over the next week.
It is quite a long drive down to Pembrokeshire on mostly A roads, so I am really hoping that the roads will be clear because although I have been driving for over 8 years I still don’t feel very comfortable driving in ice and snow.
I have been sat writing (very long) lists of all we will need for our trip, and I have split it into 3 categories, Clothes, Food and Extra’s.
I am only going to write things that I think we will need to take for C on here as D and I should know what to pack by know and I always think I will miss something that a toddler will need.
Vests x 5
PJ’s x 2
Pants x 7
Tops x 7
Jacket (fleece/hoodie) x 2
Boots x 2
socks x lots
Tights x 2
Clothes wise is there anything else that I will need for a nearly 2 year old?
As the holiday is self catered, D is a fussy eater and I am on Slimming World I am planning on taking food so that we can cook for ourselves. I know that we will be out doing activities, swimming and playing a lot of the time so will probably eat out a bit but to some on some money I am taking food. There isn’t a large supermarket close by so it’s easier to take things with us.
Tins- Beans/spaghetti/ emergency toddler faves
Frozen – turkey dinosaurs/curly fries – for D.
store cupboard – Oil/cooking spray, salt, stock cubes,
What other food would you take?
This is all the other things that aren’t clothes but we will need,
Nappies and wipes
Plates/bowls/cutlery for C
Sippy cup/ bottle for C
Washing up things – Dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, brush, tea towel.
Entertainment – toys, DVD’s, Laptop etc
Anything else I’ve missed?
I really hope that this will all fit in our little Golf.
We aren’t taking a buggy/pram with us as I think that it will get little use as C likes to walk and it will save on space in the car, I will however be taking my MGG carrier just in case she gets tired.
All about Bluestone
If you don’t know about bluestone national park resort it is a holiday resort situated in Pembrokeshire, south-west Wales. Close to Oakwood park theme park and about 20 minutes drive from Tenby.
Bluestone has self catered holiday lodges in varying sizes from little studios for 2 up, large connected lodges that sleep 8 and Bunkhouses that sleep 14 people!
We will be staying in a Ramsey “upside down living” lodge which sleep up to 4 people.
The Ramsey lodges have sleeping downstairs and a large open plan living area upstairs, so that you can take advantage of the spectacular views.
We have stayed in a Ramsey lodge on our last visit and I have to say the view was fantastic.
I can’t wait to tell you all about this trip!
