Family walking by the lake

Swap the working week for a few days building everlasting memories at Center Parcs.

A midweek break in the forest is enough time to switch off, disconnect and explore hundreds of acres of mature forest, woodland trails and boating lakes.

Join us from Monday to Friday and discover hundreds of indoor and outdoor activities, visit our restaurants, explore Aqua Sana spa or simply relax in your forest Lodge.

Tailor-made mid-week breaks

You'll be amazed by how much you can fit into a four-night stay with us. We’ve put together an itinerary to show you some of the ways you could spend your time. But at Center Parcs, your break can be whatever you want it to be.

Slip into holiday mode

Feel the usual Monday stress leave you the moment you first glimpse the forest.

After unpacking in your Woodland Lodge, head to the Cycle Centre to pick up your bikes for the week. Pop to ParcMarket for some dinner supplies and take the scenic route back, exploring some of our woodland trails.

Spend the evening laughing, unwinding and cooking together in your fully equipped kitchen.

Open plan living

Spend quality time together

After an amazing night’s sleep in the tranquillity of the forest, there’s nothing like breakfast in The Pancake House. A New York stack with crispy bacon, fluffy pancakes and maple syrup will set you up for the day.

Spend the morning in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, where the little ones can splash about in the toddler pool while you discover our rides and slides.

Try something new together

When the weather’s glorious, it’s time to tackle Action Challenge. You take on Aerial Adventure while the little ones have their own adventure with Mini Trek.

In the afternoon, take your bikes to the beach for an ice cream and a stroll through the sand. For dinner, make the most of the sunshine by firing up the barbecue on your own private patio.

Make the most of your break

Flip a coin to see who gets a lie in while the other picks up freshly baked bread from ParcMarket for breakfast.

Hire an Electric Boat and take the whole family out on the lake to soak up spectacular views of the forest.

For your last evening, take advantage of our in-Lodge baby-sitting service so the two of you can slip off to the spa and enjoy a night at Rajinda Pradesh, our contemporary Indian restaurant.
