Activities That Won’t Break The Bank At Center Parcs.

I think we can all safely say that a Center Parcs stay in school holidays isn’t a cheap getaway. However, the fact that they offer many activities a short drive from home, makes it is an appealing short break for families.
Planning is key when it comes to a stay at Center Parcs and you can read all about my top tips for a stay at Woburn.
  1. Make use of the swimming pool that’s included in the price. My boys absolutely loved the swimming pool. It was slightly annoying that the water slides are all now 1.2m and above, but the outside rapids more than made up for this.
  2. Take your own bikes with you rather than hire them. We decided that due to the cost of hiring bikes, it was worth our while buying a bike rack and taking 2 cars up. This also meant that my husband and the boys got a head start whilst I finished work
  3. Buy some marshmallows and toast them on the fire (or bbq in the summer.) Ok, you need to purchase special wood to burn in the fire, but you will probably want to do this anyway and the children will love heating their marshmallowstoasting marshmallows center parcs
  4. Book a katakanu. For five people this cost £16.50 which makes it a really low cost activity. We got to watch the ducks in the reeds and it was a nice way to spend half an hour.
  5. Play snooker or pool. Daddy wanted to catch up on sport whilst we were away so we headed to the sports bar and had a game. They had different sized cues and a step for younger players.

  1. We’ve never done a Centre parks holiday as they do cost a lot and I’ve always been worried how much more it would cost once we are there, so I’m really glad to read this, Thanks, Mich x #Countrykids

  2. The pool has to be the big attraction for families. I do think taking your own bikes is a good idea too. We’ve never been to Center Parcs and my kids are probably too old now but I always liked the idea…. apart from the price with a big family. It sounds like you have all the best tips for keeping the price down and the fun up.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids
