Aqua Sana Spa At Center Parcs Elveden Forest

Something I had been looking forward to since the minute we booked out holiday at Center Parcs was the spa. I had heard so many great things about Aqua Sana and I was desperate to experience it for myself. I’m 31 and I had never actually been to a spa before so I was really excited. My sister was super nice and paid for my spa visit as a very early Christmas present. There are loads of different packages available but we got a 3 hour session and it cost £69, not including treatments. Packages vary depending on the time

Center Parcs Restaurants: Huck’s American Bar & Grill

We decided to eat out on each evening of out holiday and our first night we chose Huck’s American Bar & Grill. We wanted to be able to eat a variety of food and not eat at the same place more than once. Huck’s is located in the Village Square and was a quick 10-15 minute walk away from our lodge, depending on whether Erin was walking or in her pushchair. The play areas in Huck’s are pretty amazing. There is a small room with soft play blocks for very young children and a bigger room that was a bit

Center Parcs Activities: Target Archery

Although we didn’t book in too many activities during our midweek break at Center Parcs Elveden Forest, we did do a few different things over the course of the week. When we originally booked to do Target Archery it was supposed to be for John, my sister and her fiance. However, about 6 weeks before our holiday, John broke his wrist so couldn’t go to Target Archery. So, I went instead! Target Archery costs £24.50 per adult and £20.50 per child and the activity lasts for 55 minutes. I’m not sure what age this is suitable for with regards to

Center Parcs Restaurants: Sports Cafe

On the first day of our holiday we arrived at about 12pm but couldn’t get into our lodge until 3pm. As we already had meals booked in at some of the other restaurants throughout the week we decided to get lunch at the Sports Café which is located in the Sports Plaza. All of the restaurants are in the Village and only a couple of minutes walk from the Subtropical Swimming Paradise. When we got there it was heaving!! We got a table okay but there was a bit of a wait for a high chair for Erin. Luckily, the

A Midweek Break At Center Parcs

For years and years I have wondered what the big deal was about Center Parcs. I’m 31 and it’s taken this long for me to finally get to experience it for myself. A couple of weeks ago me, John and Erin headed off for a midweek break at Center Parcs with my sister Natalie and her fiance Chris. We live in Norfolk so our nearest Center Parcs was Elvden Forest in Thetford which is only about an hour away by train. As we are a family that don’t drive we had to be pretty careful with how we packed. We had

Our Family Holiday Bucket List

Having just got back from a wonderful holiday at Center Parcs, I am in massive holiday mood. I am already itching to book another and I was pretty much as soon as I stepped through the door. I want Erin to experience as much as the world as possible, and visit new places as much as we can afford to! I am always looking for inspiration for our next family adventure and Destination2 is a fantastic place to start. I’ve found a few fantastic places that are going straight on our family holiday bucket list. Maldives I used to love really busy,

Center Parcs Here We Come

Today were are officially heading off on our first family holiday. John, Erin and I have been away quite often over the past year but we haven’t been on an actual holiday. Today we’re going to Center Parcs Elveden Forest for 5 days with my sister and her fiance. I have been so excited about this for months. Although we didn’t know this when we booked our holiday, Erin is now in a really big exploring kind of phase. She LOVES being outside and will be out in the garden regardless of the weather, if I let her! She loves

My Best Holiday Photo

John and I have been on a few holidays in the nearly 6 years we have been togehter. We were recently challenged to write a post based on our best holiday photo by Holiday Gems, who have so many places to choose from for holidays and it has been so much fun looking through old pictures and deciding which one I like the best. I get rather snap happy when we’re on holiday, wanting to take photos so that we remember everything for as long as possible. Although we have been on some great holidays, there is one that will stick
