Great weekend away in winter wonderland with my family. The children had a brilliant time and the place felt magical. The staff were very friendly especially the girls doing the children's teddy bear picnic and toddler Christmas party.

Been going now for 20 years and it just keeps getting better, we do love our family holidays abroad but we can't beat the festive season at centre Parcs. The kids adore the santa experience with plenty of things to do... until next year👍

This was our second visit to Centre Parcs so took all,our food and drink. We... More
