Here at Center Parcs, we design everything with you and your family in mind. We know that breaks with pre-school children can be challenging, so we've done everything we can to take the hassle out of your break. Our modern Lodges contain everything you need set in hundreds of acres of safe, peaceful woodland. There are indoor and outdoor activities to get little imaginations racing, and something new to discover every day.

  • Off-Road Explorers

    Your little ones get behind the wheel of a miniature 4x4 in this new activity. With you nearby, they learn to steer and use pedals on the practice track. Once they’ve built up confidence, they head to the woodland track to tackle bumps, dips and rumble strips, collecting puzzle pieces as they go.

Cycle around the forest

Getting around

 

The best way to get around our Villages is by bike – and that’s no different if you have little ones with you. Car access is restricted during your break to make sure our forests are perfectly safe for your little adventurers to explore. You’re welcome to bring your own bikes or you can hire them from our Cycle Centre once you arrive. We have trailers, tag-alongs, child seats, balance bikes, helmets, pads – everything you could possibly need.
