Eating out one night, taking ready meals for the other two. Got dishwasher tabs and tea towels on list, what else?

Bird seed and nuts! ( if you're taking little ones!) my DS loved leaving right by the patio door for the squirrels and ducks. We had a swan tapping on the patio door!

Condoms and anal lube, I heard.

A kindle, your swimming stuff and some nice wine smile
We're going to Woburn when it opens, it says they don't have the Parc Market but more of a convenience store so I am wondering what it's going to be like getting stuff for meals - we go to the shop daily and everybody picks and chooses what they want that night as we don't eat out.

We usually take a clothes airer to dry swimming stuff/towels on. Folds flat so doesn't take up much room in the car. I love CP! Have a nice time.

Karaoke
Prosecco
Board games
Ground coffee
Croissants
Kitchen roll
Big mugs
Proper cereal bowls
Torch

We were at Winterfell last week and some people had LED lights outside their chalet to help them find it in the dark.

Thanks all, have added board games, bird seed, torch, croissants, kitchen roll to list. Will get logs there as nowhere near us sell them. Won't bother with wooden spoon etc as won't be cooking and we aren't fussy about mugs bowls etc

Corkscrew is added to list

Appreciate your replies

Beach towel for pool.

givemeaclue Mon 20-Jan-14 11:04:44

Yes taking loads of towels

Torch and lots of money.

Are you near an Aldi?, they have the firelogs at the moment much cheaper.
Don't forget a rucksack or two easy to carry bags for your swimming stuff.
Have a good time.

Unless you are a seasoned cyclist, I would recommend a gel seat grin

ParcMarket is ludicrously expensive, just to warn you.

Firelogs from the supermarket, they're a third of the price. Good wine. Sounds silly but we always take a little side lamp, we find the living room lights too bright for relaxing evenings. And also night lights for the kids and a multi plug extension because there's never a socket free near the beds.

Rucksack. If you white their bikes they have no baskets for swim stuff!

We take microfibre camping towels for the pool. Much quicker to dry & easier to cart round 7 of them in a bike (1 towel each & 2 extra for long hair)

AF I heard those items might be useful. That or a kosh, anyway.

ToucanBlack Mon 20-Jan-14 18:35:54

DVDs or Netflix! Especially if you have very young DC and will be stuck in in the evenings. (You can only have so much bum sex wink)

AnyFucker Mon 20-Jan-14 19:58:05

thank goodness for you, onefewernow and TB

I was beginning to think my contribution was about as welcome as explosive diarrhoea in a (Centerparcs) swimming pool grin
