Have you ever considered bringing the grandparents with you on a family break? If you haven't then maybe you should. Multigenerational holidays are more popular than ever, and Bluestone is the best place accommodate families of all sizes.
What is a multigenerational break?
One of the biggest trends we've seen over the last couple of years is the multigenerational break. 2020 helped us all understand how important it is to spend time together (especially with our grandparents and the older generations). Referring to a break with three or more generations, the multigenerational family break offers a lot of benefits (not just for the parents gaining free babysitters), take a look.
HealthThe benefits of taking a holiday are well documented, but did you know letting grandparents spend time with children helps keep them healthy? According to a 2019 report allowing grandparents to spend time with children helps maintain their cognitive functions into old age. Holidays, where you’re all staying together, are perfect for this, as playtime never has to end.
It’s better for the planetWe’re all trying to be more conscious of how our actions impact the world around us and going away together as a group is one way you can improve your eco-footprint. Rather than making several trips, by going away altogether it’s better for the environment, especially if you opt to stay in the UK.
A real break for youGoing away with children isn't easy and having the support of your parents – especially after the last year – is something to treasure. You might even get a chance to slip off for time alone with your partner if the grandparents don’t mind babysitting for the night (they won’t). Or an afternoon at the spa? It also gives you the chance to enjoy spending time with your own parents and share the magic of going away, something, we think should be treasured.
Why Bluestone is best
We may be slightly biased, but we think Bluestone is the best place in the UK for a multigenerational break. Especially after the last year, you deserve your holiday away with everyone to be perfect, and you won't find a better place to spend time with the whole family than with us at Bluestone.
Don't take our word for it, here's what makes our little piece of Pembrokeshire a place the whole family will love.
Lodge options to suit everyone!Our lodges are perfect for multigenerational getaways because that's what we designed them for! We've launched new platinum lodges that are perfect for extended families, sleeping up to 8! With more space comes more options.
We also have The Dinas Lodge, where the bedrooms split at each end of the accommodation, so you can divide the sleeping arrangements up between early and late risers, meaning everyone can enjoy a good night's sleep. Or, if you still want a little bit of separation try our Tenby or Caldey Connect lodges. These are mirror-image lodges that are connected by a door in the living space and are perfect for a holiday together, but also give you some privacy.
