Center Parcs

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK

Repeatedly, I heard from others that we MUST take our kids for a long weekend to Center Parcs

With four locations to choose from in England,
we packed our bags and headed to Longleat Village for a 'family camp' adventure

One of many water slides

Open year round, each location is situated on 400 acres of forest
and features a long list of indoor and outdoor activities, 
including a subtropical indoor pool complex with a lazy river, wave pool, and water slides

With so many options, we had difficulty narrowing down what to do
but ultimately we chose scuba diving instruction, aqua jetting, laser clay shooting, a treasure hunt on bicycles,
and a chance to handle cutie-pie animals

That's just the tip of the iceberg of what they offered

Cabins are fancy or not, depending on budget
We could eat in the various restaurants on campus or
cook meals in our cabin's kitchen
An impressive grocery store was on site as well

Row of cabins

One of the great things about Center Parcs is
it's a great vacation for families with kids of multiple ages
There really is something for everybody

Bikes are the main mode of transportation

Will we be back? Well, with so many activities yet to do,
that answer is a no-brainer

My kids would tell you, not soon enough :)

Looks like fun! So great that you're taking in so much around you. My guy has had 2 days off (though I don't know what 2 days they were!) since August so getting out and enjoying the sights has still been on hold.

We went to one of these years ago when we lived in Germany. It was a wonderful holiday and I'm glad to read that they're still around.

Can you find us a place like that in Chicago! Wow that looks awesome for the kiddos! It is so hard to find places that offer both rustic outdoor living and fun activities for the kids....Loving it!
