Despite arriving at what I'm told is the busy period we were through check in within about 15 minutes and given lots of helpful info about how to make the most of our stay by the lovely lady at Check in. As we were a little early to go to our accommodation we headed to the Activity Centre for a drink, nappy change and much needed stretch of our legs.
We took the girls straight to the Circus Room which they both loved and gave D a chance to get rid of all the pent up excitement from nearly 5 hours in the car. F also loved how colourful the room is and as she's just at the almost crawling stage it gave her a safe place to have a roll about after being in her car seat for so long.
We then popped across the road to collect our buggy and Mr R went to get the car so we could unpack. If you are planning on coming to Bluestone I would definitely recommend the Buggies, ours cost £80 for the mid week but with a toddler in tow I already know it's worth the money and so so much fun!
We are staying in a Ramsey lodge which is an upside design. The inside is clean, spacious and has everything we need (had a couple of issues with the heated towel rails but that may well be me being dense) the lodges are super family friendly with stair gates, high chair, travel cot and bed rail. Both bedrooms have an en-suite and there is a lovely outside area for the girls to play in.
So far so good, we're really happy and looking forward to the rest of the week.
My only gripe if I had to find one is that for me the check in is a little late at 4.30pm as it's tricky to get unpacked etc in time to feed the kids. Plus our high chair didn't have a tray (it's an IKEA one so I know they have them) and as it doesn't slide under the table so it's tricky for F to feed herself with dropping food. It may be an oversight so will check in the morning
