Center Parcs Restaurants: Café Rouge

On the second evening of our holiday we had booked to eat at Café Rouge at 6pm. Tuesday is Steak Night so you can get any steak with fries for £15, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than the price on the main menu. We arrived at about 5:45 as we had just finished swimming and we got seated no problem. We were seated at a lovely big table and we had more than enough space for the four of us, Erin and the couple of bags we had with us. The restaurant was steady but not overly busy.

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

A Greater Anglia Adventure To Lowestoft

John and I love going on family days out and this week he has been off work, giving us plenty of time to get out and about. We have been lucky enough to take part in Greater Anglia‘s newest campaign, #lettheadventurebegin. Even though we live in Middle of Nowhere, Norfolk we are lucky to have a train station a 15 minute walk away from us. This week we went on a family adventure to Lowestoft, somewhere I’ve only ever been once and that was for a concert! We had a very early start to the day to make sure we got
