I was looking for things to do over the Easter holidays and came across some special offers on the Center Parcs Website. The deals tend to be the weeks before and after Easter but they are offering up to 25% off some accommodation if you have flexible holidays.
I used to go to Center Parcs all the time when I was younger but the only one I really remember is Longleat Forest in Wiltshire. This one has a great swimming pool inside a glass dome and loads of activities to get involved in. They also have the most fantastic pancake house where you have the choice of many different inventions! I remember the last time I went (2 years ago) I felt the chalets needed a bit of a refurbish but they also have some newer larger chalets that have an outside hot tub and some relaxing extras.
If you do go to Center Parcs try and take bikes with you; you will need them and Center Parcs charge a lot for you to hire them. Remember to take your bike locks as well, we forgot these and had to pay about £10 for a new one.
It is best to go with a group if possible, sometimes a 1 bedroom apartment works out only about £50 cheaper than a two bedroom so you’ll definitely save if you go for more bedrooms. The chalets range from ‘comfort’ to ‘VIP’ so make sure you look at the options and see if you can get a good deal.
You can visit Center Parks for a whole week, the weekend or from Monday to Friday. Check out their website to see if you can take advantage of their special offers.
