Our holiday in Pembrokeshire // Day four // Manorbier, Blue Lagoon & Sunsets

Thursday was a beautifully sunny day so after another lovely night’s sleep, we got ready and popped out to Manorbier which is about a 15 minute drive from where we were staying in Saundersfoot.

The beach at Manorbier is absolutely beautiful and has no dog restrictions so it’s a wonderful place to spend time with your pooch! Elsie wasn’t really in the mood for walking however and much preferred people watching or being fussed by folk walking past (#puglife).

After a morning of sandcastle making and relaxing, we headed up back into the village where we lunched at the Beach Break Tearooms. The garden at the back of the tearoom is dog friendly and it was such a lovely place to eat. The baguette I ordered was just what I was craving and the children’s snack box containing a sandwich, yoghurt, crisps, vegetable sticks and a jam tart was really good value for money too!

We had pre-booked an afternoon swimming session at the Blue Lagoon water park so after lunch, it was time to jump in the car to head over to Bluestone. The session lasted 3 hours which we found was just the right amount of time to experience everything on offer. Miss E is a lot more confident in the water these days and she had a blast in Nippers Cove, an area dedicated to small children complete with ‘rock pools’ to explore and more inflatable balls than you could shake a stick at! 

My favourite? The lazy river (ha!). My brother also talked me into trying out the slides too which are very much not my kinda thing and after riding them? My opinion remains the same! Overall though, a super place to spend the afternoon…. Even if you’re not staying onsite at Bluestone.

The weather in the evening was super lovely so we all enjoyed our meal outside back at the cottage overlooking fields full of sheep whilst Miss E bounced herself silly on the trampoline (Oh, I wish we had space in the garden for one at home!).
