Why Wouldn’t You Go To Centerparcs?

It’s no secret how much I love Centerparcs. If you follow me on twitter then you are probably sick of all my tweets about it, my bad!

Anyway, on to what we did. There were 7 of us to start off the week which increased to 8 half way through, so it made sense to get a 4 bedroom villa but we were very lucky because we also had a games room and a sauna.

This is the first time in a long time that we cooked most of our evening meals in the villa, but with so many of us, it would have gotten overly expensive. That saying, we went out on Thursday evening to the Indian, called Rajinda Pradesh, for my brothers birthday (he’s officially a teenager!).

To be honest, we do so many activities during the day that by 5pm we’re about ready to drop! So it was really nice to sit down in the evening and be comfy as opposed to stuck in a restaurant! I just think we enjoyed our evening a little more, despite the fact that it is lovely eating out.

Each day we played tennis and badminton (standard for us!), plus so much cycling. We also enjoyed a couple of rounds of adventure golf and on our last evening we did an Aerial Adventure, which is very similar to Go Ape! and you zip wire across the lake at the end. And of course how could I forget the swimming, as well as pedalos on the lake.

These activities are of course our preference, and there are so many more too - you have the spa where you can have treatments or spend a half/full day, there are other outdoor activities including rock climbing and abseiling, a lake for all kinds of water activities and also indoor activities. This is only for adults, there are even more for children, check out the website here.

I think it can be very difficult to spend every day outside unless it is your job! It’s so refreshing to spend this time outside, doing activities, cycling and walking about.

I honestly think that Centerparcs is for absolutely everyone, there is something for for whatever takes your fancy. Cost can always be negotiated, whether you choose an activity and eat in, or go swimming and cycling so that you can eat out. There’s a lot of controversy about this, particularly on Mumsnet, so I’ve decided to do another post about it. Stay tuned!

Obviously I’m completely biased but if you are considering going then go! You won’t regret it at all!

I love it so much that I’m off again in 2 months with @LDNmeetup for #bloggersinvadecenterparcs and I cannot wait!

Have you ever been? What do you think? Or are you considering going?



  1. I have been to Center Parcs nearly every year since I was a teenager. It is mine and now my children's favourite getaway. I would love to visit over Christmas but we've not been luckily enough to yet.

  2. I'd love to go for Christmas too! We've done New Year several times before which was great fun! And I can't wait to go back again :)

  3. I've been once with an ex's family, but I'd love to go again - there's loads to do even if you're a grown up!!

  4. You should! Perhaps with someone else this time ;) It's so worth it :)
