Weekend breaks in the heart of the forest

Make your weekend one that you and your family will remember forever with a short break at Center Parcs.

Escape the daily grind and immerse yourself in hundreds of acres of mature forest, boating lakes and woodland trails.

From Friday to Monday, try out some of our indoor and outdoor activities, discover our tempting restaurants, explore the award-winning spa or simply relax in your luxury forest lodge.

Tailor-made weekend breaks

You'll be amazed by how much you can fit into a three-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

Leave straight from work and arrive in the forest by early evening. Settle in while you admire the touches of luxury in your Executive Lodge.

Stroll over to the Village Square and choose from our range of tempting restaurants. Perhaps it’s a Huck's American Bar and Grill night – an easy-going family favourite with gourmet burgers, steaks, hot dogs, fajitas and more.

Wake up to peace and quiet

Pick up some freshly baked bread from ParcMarket and enjoy a lazy breakfast in your lodge – some of our wildlife might join you at the patio doors for leftovers!

Spend the whole morning in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, trying out the rides and savouring the privacy of a Family Cabana. In the afternoon it's on to Quad Bike Safari – Junior Quads for the little ones – followed by a family Pottery Painting session.

It's been a busy day, so leave the cooking to someone else and order Dining In – freshly prepared, restaurant-quality food in your lodge.

Immerse yourself in the forest

Treat yourself to breakfast at Café Rouge – French toast or eggs benedict?

Today is all about the forest – hire bikes and explore our miles of woodland trails in the morning. After lunch, go on a real family adventure with Den Building and Decorating. The sun is still shining, so grab some supplies from ParcMarket and fire up a barbecue on your private terrace for the evening.

Come back again soon

Your break isn't quite over yet – head to Center Parcs institution The Pancake House for a stack of fluffy American pancakes before you leave.

Head home relaxed, refreshed and excited to book your next break!

Weekend getaways with a difference

When you come to Center Parcs, your break begins from the moment you pass the sign welcoming you into our peaceful, mature forest.

You can make your break anything you want it to be – pack it with activities and adventure, discovering new things like Abseiling or Archery. Or if you prefer a more gentle pace, book a spa treatment, explore the Subtropical Swimming Paradise and enjoy long, leisurely meals in our range of restaurants.
