We have been to Centreparcs several times but have just come back from the most fantastic weekend. I must say November/December is such a lovely time to visit as it had such a xmassy feel. We did not pay the extra to have a nearer villa but ended up being the nearest we have ever stayed, perhaps as quiter time of year?
My 6yr old and I had great fun on the high ropes, it is expensive but worth it!
We enjoyed the panto - Thought may be a bit dodgy but was made hilarious by the fantastic guy playing Wishy Washy. Was so funny - All parts well played!
Xmas Crafts was good for any little girl who loves this sort of thing.
The Fireworks which are on a Tuesday and Sunday throughout November and December were absolutely fantastic as we watched from outside our villa with hot chocolates and marshmallows -Bliss!
A must do trip to father Xmas again exceeded my expectations, the whole area was decorated well and lots for kids to look at and even kept my lively 2 year old entertained whilst we waited. Once visiting him,it was the longest visit we have ever had and a great father xmas with a lovely present in a lovely handcrafted gift bag and a bonus of 2 nice photos included on the way out.
My daughter enjoyed doing the mystery stocking hunt around the park on her bike finding letters to a clue to get a treat.
Only drawbacks were that we feel the water is getting colder in the pools and the whole swimming area cooler too so can get a little chilly for me, let alone young kids!
The sports bar had the most ridiculous queue as per always and i must have queued 20 mins to get a drink and order food on Saturday lunchtime. More staff on tills needed!
We have enjoyed centerparcs more since we have learned to visit M&S and buy some yummy food to take, rather than the disappointment of their takewaways and restaurants which do have poor service sometimes and are expensive.
Also remembering not to book too many activities which all add up as it is nice to have time to enjoy the beautiful setting, cycling (take own bikes) swimming and parks etc which are all free!
