Is Center Parcs any good?

In short, yes! Its a great weekend (or week) in the forest where you get to do as much or as little as you want, which makes it as expensive or ‘cheap’ as you want. I say cheap loosely since it depends on villa deals. You have to pay for nearly all activities (bar swimming) and you either take your bikes with you or hire them while you’re there.

The misconceptions:

1. Center Parcs is not a ‘slightly better version of Butlins’. It is totally different and something for everyone.
2. No, not everything is in that dome you keep seeing pictures of. Only the pool is in there.
3. The villa’s are of really good quality – but I would recommend going for executive if you can. Its nicer.

What I love about CP:
1. You say goodbye to your car after you offload – from then on its cycling in the forest to get wherever you want to go – its great fun – and everything you need is there (supermarket, restaurants, activities, bunnies etc…)
2. If you like watersports, its there. If you like indoor sports (badminton, squash, table tennis) its there. If you like random things like fencing, its there. If you like spa’s, they have an amazing spa.
3. You can’t get those kind of views in London, you’re in the forest with beautiful lakes and animals! Lots of little bunny rabbits run around as well.
4. You can choose from four CP’s – and they are in the process of building a 5th slightly nearer to London. The one we went to was in Thetford, Suffolk. If you go, go in the summer because you don’t really want to be screwed by the rain…Either way, will definately be going back!
