It can be hard to find a weekend break that fit’s all family needs, in fact it can be pretty impossible, especially when you have two overactive boys aged seven and eight, a husband that works very hard all week and thinks weekends are for relaxing and me, who just doesn’t want to cook and wants a little me time.
Well, I think that we might just have found the holy grail. Enter Center Parcs, Whinfell Forest. We had never been to Center Parcs before and we had a blast. It was great fun and there was something for all of us.
We drove to Center Parcs on Friday afternoon and spent the weekend there and just look at what we managed to cram in.
My boys are pretty sporty and have no fear so we had an active weekend and they conquered the climbing wall.
They even managed the aerial challenge, which I have to admit that I bottled. Oh yes, I got one foot on the tyres and froze! Thankfully I can say the staff are amazing and they had me back on solid ground before the boys could laugh at me!
We really did have a super weekend. We made a rule to be screen free and you know what we managed it with no issues what so ever. We swam, cycled, zip wired, walked, looked for red squirrels, rock climbed, abseiled, rope climbed, played football, played pool, ate delicious food, played board games, sat in front of a log fire and much much more.
I have so much more to say, but don’t want this post to overwhelm you, so I will be posting more over the next couple of weeks.
