I’ve just booked a holiday at Centerparcs in The Netherlands. The shop and restaurants at Centerparcs UK are pretty good with allergy friendly stuff but not sure about abroad.
For example, does anyone know if you can get soya milk from the supermarket? Otherwise I’ll be packing a suitcase full for my dd!

Just thought I would post an update, as we have just come back from our holiday at Centerparcs Kempervennen.
The on site supermarket had Alpro milk and coconut yoghurt. They also had the flavoured milks in small cartons. I had brought my own tub of Pure spread in a suitcase but noticed they had a dairy free spread called Becel. Prices are inflated but good in an emergency. Food labelling is EU regulations so easy to identify allergens. Hubby cycled to Lidl for supplies which was only 15 minutes away.
We only ate once at one of the restaurants there but the staff were very helpful; we had allergy cards printed in Dutch which made things clear and could be taken to the kitchen to check.
Hope this helps somebody else planning to go!

sanmiguel trip was good, and the facilities at the park were great. However the accommodation was very dated - back to the 70s! There is no oven in the kitchen, just a hob and microwave, and no extractors in the bathrooms so felt quite damp. It did feel unloved, and was lacking a really good clean, including the walls and ceilings that had various marks and squashed mosquitoes.
This was a premium cottage which was a step up from the budget comfort tier; I’ve heard the VIP ones are better.
Having said that we had so much fun. We hired bikes, the kids requested a daily visit to the pools, went on the pedalos, climbing, bowling and the animal farm. There was so much we didn’t get to do. We had a couple of days out and cycled out to a pancake house less than 3km away, who were really good with allergies and provided me with a list of dishes the dc could have when I emailed them (no pancakes though), the owner even had my email pinned up in the kitchen ready when we arrived for our booking! www.suykerbuyck.nl. (Use google translate).
So for us it was 6/10 let down by the accommodation but would have been a much higher score if it was in better condition.

Thanks for updating. Always on the look out for new places to visit and had considered CP further afield.
