Cabana life

Center Parcs


A family favourite for over 25 years, I took my daughter there as a little girl and now we take her children there. We tend to go as a large group; we take a couple of lodges close to each other which means on an evening if we choose not to go out, we have supper parties in our lodges. The level of comfort is such that it lends itself to this, soft lighting, log fires, good quality wine glasses and nice cutlery plus a dishwasher so no fighting who does the pots.

Getting up on a morning to draw back the curtains and look out at the forest and usually some squirrels staring back or some ducks or rabbits all adds to the magic, we never go in the height of the season, we could not afford it, we tend to go in November or early spring, always mid-week far less crowded and a great time of year to enjoy sitting in the 84 degrees in the swimming dome.

The quality and thought put into the park justifies the charges I have found nowhere to match it hence the reason we are still going back 25 years later, we have seen changes it is evolving it has to so it stays a market leader, not all of the changes I have liked but for the biggest part they have only included more choice. I think if asked what is the number one reason I go back it would have to be that the whole family even the babies are considered in their plans, the whole family is welcome in restaurants all day long, so no real babysitting worries, but if you want a break from the kids there is also the option for that as well and ultimately there is so much choice all high quality.

The one adult haven I must mention is the Spa, it is simply wonderful, at first I thought was a bit pricy, but after trying it, I now know why it gets busy, it is worth every penny and can also recommend having lunch in the conservatory, best food I have had on the parc was in there.

I think the swimming dome is so well known no real need to write about it other than to say it is still as nice as when it first opened and has the best disabled facilities I have ever found, we use these as our little granddaughter is fully disabled, this is also one of the best sites for disabled people the staff are so helpful, nothing too much trouble, so try a winter break and enjoy the forest life
