      What to pack

      What to pack for your Center Parcs break

      Make sure you plan ahead and don’t forget anything for your break in the forest. Here are some ideas for what you can pack...

      General hints and tips

      • Don’t forget to bring your everyday toiletries
      • Bring some board games to play in your lodge, ideal for if you have some downtime or if the weather takes a turn
      • If you have your own cycles, why not bring them with you? But if you don’t have space in your car, you can pre-book and pick them up from the Cycle Centre
      • Forgotten your bike lock? You can hire one at the Cycle Centre
      • Don’t forget your phone or camera to capture the special moments during your break
      • Bring milk, tea and coffee for that first hot drink in your lodge, or head to the ParcMarket to pick up your groceries
      • If you want to visit our restaurants or try our activities, it’s best to pre-book to avoid disappointment
      • Looking to make a splash in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise? Remember to pre-book your sessions before you arrive 
      • We provide you with three dishwasher tablets and a sachet of washing up liquid. For any extras needed, bring them along or buy them at the ParcMarket
      • All our villages are cashless and can no longer accept cash payments, including for the purchase of gift cards.

      Bring the correct clothing

      • Comfortable shoes and clothing for exploring the forest
      • You can’t predict the British weather so make sure to come prepared for sunny days with sunglasses, plenty of t-shirts, shorts and, of course, plenty of sun cream
      • For greyer days, don't forget your raincoats, wellies and some warm cosy clothes
      • There are no laundry facilities available when in the forest
      • If you do forget to pack essential items, or just fancy a spot of retail therapy, don't worry, Joules and Aquatique stock everything you need… and more.

      Packing for the little ones

      Packing can sometimes be a nightmare when you have little ones to make sure you remember everything from home. Here is a list of what you might need during your break:

      • Pushchair, bottles, toys and other essentials
      • Swim nappies for the Subtropical Swimming Paradise
      • Linen for the cot
      • Baby food - free baby food is available in our restaurants and to take away

      Some things you don’t need during your stay are:

      • Stepping stool - we provide a stool in all of our bathrooms so your little ones can reach the sink and mirror
      • High chair

      Get ready for your break

      Once you’ve booked your break at Center Parcs you can start to pre-book activities, make restaurant reservations and order essentials to your lodge online 12 weeks before your arrival date, allowing you to really make the most of your short break in the forest and ensure that you don't miss out.
