We booked a Family weekend to celebrate 3 birthdays - Grandpa, Son-in-Law and Granddaughter. We arrived at lunchtime and, after parking the cars we went straight to the village centre. Having travelled for a couple of hours I needed a loo and went to the nearest "gents". Some inconsiderate moron had left a soiled disposable nappy on top of the toilet roll holder. So not the best of starts. But not the fault of Centre Parcs. And the people at Guest Services investigated immediately.
We had lunch at the Pancake House and all thoroughly enjoyed our choices. That evening we dined in the Pub and all had the excellent carver.
We had snow over the weekend and enjoyed walking in the woodland. It was quite magical.
The disappointment was when we cancelled our Granddaughters "Tree Treking" because it was sleeting heavily and it was very cold. WE felt it was too dangerous for a nine year old girl but Centre Parcs didn't and so charged us a cancellation fee of £17!! But were selling the experience for £18 when they had charged us £25. AS if they don't make enough?
Every time we visit Centre Parcs we agree to try somewhere else next time - but we keep going back and have done so every year for the past 23 years.
When all is said and done it really is a great place to visit and we all feel the benefit - even though it never seems long enough!
