ACTIVITIES - JUNIOR ADVENTURES

Designed for children between the ages of 4-7. These activities provide free range fun for curious minds and are firmly based within the natural world that we are lucky to be surrounded by here at Bluestone. Children are encouraged to call on the imaginative processes needed when creating new worlds of fun, particularly with activities like Bluestone Buccaneers where kids are taken on pirate adventures within mythical lands beyond reality.

With 8-12 year olds it can sometimes be tough to coax them away from the computer or the TV screens in today’s vast maze of technology and gaming, but worry not – we’ll have them running, jumping and playing in no time. Imaginations will run wild as they become woodland survivors down at the Steep Ravine as they swing through trees and build their very own dens or camp fires. Or take them back in time as they become a medieval knight on the tournament field and perhaps finish up with the mental challenge of our 4x4 safari where they’ll navigate narrow roads and fallen trees through their very own safari drive.

(8-12 years)

TREE CLIMBING (6 years +) 1 hour - Minimum height 1.1m Guardian required to observe Tree Climbing is just another treat that the Steep Ravine has on offer. You’ll use your own stamina to work your way to the top of some of our tallest trees. Pause at the top and you’ll have stunning views of the entire National Park land.

If the weather isn’t quite playing ball then you can still enjoy some pulse racing fun undercover at the Adventure Centre, dubbed the indoor playground for its array of activities. The climbing wall is a favourite amongst our thrill seekers. With various routes, this one caters for all abilities so it’s perfect for a bit of parent, kid competition or lone rangers alike. Our experienced instructors will talk you through your route and then it’s down to you to work your way to the top!

WOODLAND WARRIOR (8 years +) - 90 minutes Guardian required to sign disclaimer Woodland warrior laser combat is like paint ball, it fires lasers and all hits are recorded.

ACTIVITIES - ON THE LAKE FAMILY RAFT WARS

On the Lake

(8 years +) - 1 hour - Guardian required

This is a great activity to bring out the fun, competitive side of families as you are split into two teams and given an allowance of plastic money. Spend it wisely as you will have to bid on the items that you think will help you to build the winning raft. Once you have built your raft the race is on to get to the other side of the lake. The fun is in the chaos and in the challenge of avoiding sabotage from your opponents.

(Seasonal activities)

We are very lucky to have such a fantastic landscape and one of our favourite places is the lake. It’s a beautiful place for a light stroll, or simply to sit and enjoy a little serenity. It’s also a favourite amongst photography lovers. During the summer days the lake is home to a range of activities too.

WELSH CORACLES (10 years +) - 1 hour - Guardian required

Guests will learn to paddle a coracle and negotiate their way across the lake in a swift silent fashion to replicate the movements of Welsh fishermen. The coracles are a small round craft designed to be lightweight so that the fishermen could carry them on their backs whilst making their way through the woods.

KAYAKING (12 years +) - 1 hour - Guardian required

Kayaking is loved by all ages and it’s a perfect way to bring the family together in an activity that everyone can enjoy. This gentle sport is a great way to enjoy the tranquil waters of the lake as a couple or a small group. There’s still a challenge in the balance but nothing too demanding, we promise.

OUR LAKE ACTIVITIES GET BOOKED UP FAST. If you haven’t booked already it’s best to do so in advance which you can do via any of the options listed on page 27.

ACTIVITIES - BLUE LAGOON WATER PARK

ACTIVITIES - THUNDER GAMES

Thunder Games

Once upon a time knights were invited by kings and nobles to show their skills in tournaments. Here they would fight to the death for riches and land! Now there isn’t that sort of danger on our Tournament Field but things do get fiercely competitive!

Make a Splash

Enjoy tropical temperatures in our huge eco friendly Blue Lagoon Water Park. This bubble of aqua fun boasts slip slides, winding flumes and whipping waves that will take you on a castaway like voyage through the largest water park in West Wales. Roll on down the lazy river at a relaxing snail’s pace. You’ll switch from indoor to out during this leisurely winding journey that passes below the screams of laughter from the flumes above. Take a break mid way through to enjoy our secluded hot tub nestled within a south facing patio, here you can relax

on a sun lounger or take a short walk over the bridge to grab an ice cream from the Fish Shack. Enjoy all the fun of rolling waves in the main pool at intervals throughout your swim; the water jets will roar and the waves will begin whooshing across the water.

We can’t promise you royalty but we can promise you all the fun of middle age tournament, including that competitive edge but without the great losses. Our tournament field brings out your fighting spirit as you perfect your aim in archery and laser clay shooting, or test your mettle with our cross bows.

The air is filled with giggles and laughter as the fun is turned up a notch. Get your dancing flippers on for Wild Water, our Friday night water based disco as we turn up the tempo! The lazy river gets rapid, waves get wild and the music’s turned up as the weekend arrives.

CROSSBOW

LASER CLAY SHOOT

ARCHERY

(8 years +) - 45 minutes - Unaccompanied The correct term for a crossbow in the middle ages was an Arbalest – a fantastic example of human engineering of a world long past. Hit the gong or knock the knight down, this fun target practice is a real test of your coordination.

(8 years +) - 45 minutes - Unaccompanied We go a little more modern as we lead you onto the laser clay shoot but this is a real favourite across our rural county. This one may not demand the physical skill of the bow and arrow but the target practice is a great one for speed of mind. Fathers and sons easily find their competitive inner selves coming out with this one. Good luck with the games...

(8 years +) - 45 minutes - Unaccompanied Archers were the most important part of a castle’s defence. A lifetime of practicing this ancient art could be the lead up to one battle or mean survival during journeys through the forests travelled before beaten tracks existed. Can you play Twm Sion, the Welsh Robin Hood for one day?

USEFUL INFORMATION

Getting Around

CYCLING It would be a shame not to explore our countryside during your stay and we have plenty of ways for you to go about it. Wherever you want to cycle we have the bike for you too! There are city type strollers if you’d like something for simply transporting you across the resort. If you’re going to get down and dirty on the muddy tracks of the forest then we have mountain bikes for adults and children. We also offer tag-­alongs for young children that are not yet confident with cycling, these are easily attachable to the back of most standard bikes.

TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT

We’ve made booking our activities, spa experiences and dining options as easy as possible and accessible to all. We understand that whilst some might prefer to speak to somebody in person or by phone, others may wish to simply click a few buttons on their device.

BUGGIES Our electric buggies are a great way to get around our car free zones if you don’t fancy walking, but don’t forget to bring along your driving license because these are for adults only. GUEST TRANSPORT Our complimentary guest transport can take you anywhere across the resort. There are dedicated bus stops however if you see it coming just hail down the driver and jump on board – it’s that easy.

Guided Historical Walk Take a step back in time and discover Bluestone’s rich history with a guided tour by our resident historian Terry John. Join Terry on an adventure where you’ll find out some fascinating facts about the past of Bluestone’s majestic setting – from why Castle Coch was built and who lived there, to why a white rose is left in Newton Church once a year.
