Just returned from my first visit to Center Parcs and it exceeded all our expectations. We booked a 3 bed Comfort Plus Lodge for 4 adults, a 2 year old and a 4 month old and there was plenty of room.
The park was all decked out for Christmas with lights, trees, festive displays, Santa's workshop and 2 reindeer!! My 2 year old was absolutely thrilled to see Rudolph in the flesh!!
We took our own food for breakfast and evening meals but did eat out at lunch time and the food was reasonably priced. We especially loved the pancake house for lunch on Thursday and kept warm with hazelnut hot chocs from the two Starbucks on site throughout the day.
On Tuesday afternoon us mums had a 3 hour Aqua Sana Spa Session which was absolutely lovely - 15 different experiences and we managed to do them twice in 3 hours! Wednesday we had booked in to create our own bauble which my daughter loved and it is now pride of place on our tree. We used the pool in the afternoon and the dads took full advantage of the outdoor pool which is 30C and has rapids which allowed them to be kids again!!
We took our own logs for cozy nights watching Xmas films but the shops don't sell firelighters as they sell packs of 3 logs for £10 - unfortunately these only burn for 2 hours but we managed to put our logs on top to keep the fire burning longer. The heating in the lodge was ideal in the main living area was boiling but it didn't quite heat up in the bedrooms, so thank god I took my daughters oil filled radiator to keep her room warm overnight as temperatures plummetted!!
All in all though it was a brilliant break and we have all booked again for next xmas and we are also booking in March for the 3 of us and my in laws to go again!!
Ignore the bad reviews on here - I was expecting the worst because of them and it topped the holiday I had in the Summer abroad!!
