Fun Holiday Ideas For Active Toddlers: The Great Outdoors Break

Tots can be full of energy 24/7 – but try these brilliant getaways and you’ll never be stuck for something to do…


Bluestone National Park Resort, Pembrokeshire, Wales


Although Pembrokeshire is remote, it’s easily accessible by car or train – and there’ll be none of the hassle (or expense) of flights. The nearest train station is Whitland, which is 10 miles away.


A luxury holiday camp, Bluestone is about connecting with nature through freedom, fun and fresh air. You stay in lodges, cottages or studios set in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. In their Mini Rangers club (newborn to three years), little ones will have as much fun as older kids, dressing up as pirates, looking for hobbits in the Secret Fairy village and searching for mini beasts in the National Park grounds.

Then there’s the Juniors Rangers club, for three to seven year olds, where children can get busy making dens in the Wacky Woods and running wild on the beach. For under ones, there’s a sensory playroom with bubbles, lights and music, as well as a Lego Room.

The on-site Blue Lagoon waterpark is an all-round hit for all ages, with its flumes, waves and pools, and grown-ups can recover in the Well Spa after a hard day’s play. Treatments feature Décleor and Espa products, plus there are herbal and marine steam rooms, an ice pod and dry salt room.


Two- to four-bedroom, luxury timber lodges, or one- to two-bedroom cottages, arranged around a ‘village’ with shops, a bakery and wine store.


From £369 for five nights for two adults and two children in a self-catering lodge. Visit Bluestone Wales or call 0183 486 2400.
