The best way to get around our Villages with little ones is by bike. During your break, car access is limited to ensure Center Parcs is a safe place for your little ones to explore on foot or on two wheels. You’re welcome to bring your own bikes, or save the hassle and hire them from the Cycle Centre before you arrive. We have a variety of bikes available as well as child seats, trailers and tag-a-longs.
Activities for families
The forest is a natural playground for you and your little ones to explore. Watch the joy on their faces as they feed the wildlife from your patio door, or see the leaves change colour through the seasons. Our children's activity programme has been designed to provide adventures for the whole family. We offer a range of unique shared experiences for you and your child to experience together. See more
Adventures for little ones
Our exciting and varied activity programme includes adventures for little ones to enjoy without parents.
