Half Term Break - Pendine Sands

Wow things have been so busy here over the last few weeks.  I have been inundated with custom orders for baby blankets, dolls blankets, hot water bottles, baby hats and bed spreads; so the half term has come as a welcome break.  Time to get away from it all for a few days.

We travelled straight from school pick up on Friday and headed for South Wales.  I have many fond memories of childhood holidays in Wales and was very excited to be returning with Little T.  It took us around 3 hours to cross the Welsh border and the sun was setting just as we traversed the Seven Bridge, providing stunning views.  A little over an hour later we arrived at the Pendine Sands holiday park.  It was now pitch black and we would have to wait till morning to see the local scenery.

It really was worth the wait.  The next day proved to be a blinder, with gorgeous sunshine and hardly a cloud in the sky.  Just look at the breathtaking Welsh coastline...



 rugged cliffs...


gorgeous sandy beaches...

family time at the beach.


The accommodation in the park itself was great too, we stayed in a lovely caravan and there is plenty to do if you have little ones.  A family indoor swimming pool, play areas for the kids, restaurants and pubs, a chippy and also the show bar for evening entertainment.  The staff were all great too very friendly and helpful.  I am sure we will be visiting again soon...

I hope you have all enjoyed a last blast of summer too, wherever you are.

Back soon

  1. Happy to hear you've been inundated with orders! We've never been to Wales (always travelling further up North - as you know), but it sure looks worth a visit!
    Have a great week ahead!
