Bluestone: The Lodge

Saturday, 11 April 2015

This was the welcome sight that greeted me after a long drive from Cardiff to Bluestone (Which I did - and I drove on the motorway for the first time!!!!!!) and I couldn't stop grinning. Staying in this lodge for a week really was going to be awesome. Our lodge was up in Knight's Rest which is right up and out of the way from everything else, but still just a 5 minute walk to the main village. Checking in was really easy, it's a drive through format and only took about 5 minutes. You can drive to your lodge and unpack then park your car in the car park so the whole of Bluestone is a car free place - bliss!

The kitchen was much more equipped than I thought it was going to be. We had all the usual appliances, cutlery and even a few dishwasher tablets - oh yes there is a dishwasher!! You need to take all food down with you and I would recommend taking a mug as the mugs were on the small size and I don't tend to function without a bucket of coffee.   

The rooms were incredible, modern and very comfy. We had plenty of towels, pillows and wardrobe space. The en-suite shower was a personal favourite and to be honest it's better than most hotels I've stayed in. I may also have had a mid day nap every day because the beds were that amazing. 

Massive tv - check! Large sofas - Check! Plenty of space for entertaining - Check!
Our lodge had four bedrooms and one was on the ground floor with a huge bathroom just next door. This was such a lovely touch I thought as it made the whole property really accessible for anyone who couldn't take the stairs. Plus that bath is so deep that you could basically swim lengths in it.

This was the view over the whole of Bluestone from our picnic bench, a few people unpacking their cars but this was the busiest it ever got. I'm going to be posting over the next week about all our difference days we had and ending it on a vlog!
