Last year we went to Whinfell Forest and we had a brilliant time, so it's easy to describe our perfect day.
I'd start with breakfast with a red squirrel. This actually happened to me, I'd been trying to get a good photo of a red squirrel all week, they were a little shy, or so I thought. One morning I woke up before everyone else and was enjoying a nice peaceful cup of tea on our patio when who should come along and join me but a gorgeous red squirrel.
Then we could choose to have breakfast at the lodge as there is a lovely well equipped kitchen and a well stocked supermarket for all your needs on the site. However, we are on holiday, so why not go out for breakfast instead. Even better, breakfast on the boardwalk overlooking the wonderful lake. What a brilliant way to start the day.
Swimming is a big favourite and the subtropical swimming paradise at Center Parcs have everything for an exciting splash around. The Little Man loved it in the special pool for little ones, with their own little slides and plenty of toys. The girls loved the wave pool while Daddy The Adventurer loved the Canyon ride.
Then there are the play areas which the kids adored, and it was all so safe that Mummy was able to relax while the Little Man ran around too.
For afternoon activities we are going to take the little ones for some fun time at the Wizard and Fairy School, where they learn magic and how to ride on a broomstick! Ok, perhaps not, but they do make wands and fairy cakes and get face painted. Meanwhile why they are having so much fun, Mummy and Daddy can sneak off to the Aqua Sana Spa for some steamy relaxation (of the sauna sort, clean your minds!)
Then we can pop back to the lodge for the obligatory BBQ and a rummage in our back garden.
Then the evening entertainment would involve a walk around the parc and a game of tenpin bowling. But before retiring for the day we'd have a quick peek to see if there were any badgers on the badger cam. Then we would go to our cosy beds thinking about all the exciting things we could do the next day because we hadn't time to fit in the crazy golf or pottery painting.
Before I leave you with our perfect day I have to remind you that the best way to travel around any Center Parcs is by bike.
This is my entry into the Center Parcs and Tots100 January Challenge and if chosen I would like to go to Sherwood Forest.
I've been watching the Center Parcs Family Videos and was most inspired by Children of All Ages.
