Try an archive search, there is quite a lot on CP. There are about 4 in UK, more in Europe, UK ones are in Suffolk, Cumbria, Wiltshire (or is is Gloucestershire) and NOttinghamshire (I think). The whole point in a way is that they are great for kids, but I have had child free friends who went because of all the activities.

PS Price wise there are loads of discounts available depending on who is in your party, or which week you choose, but going during school hols possibly means double the price.

i just dont get these holidays - maybe if they were cheaper, but when they work out equal to or more expensive than a holiday in the sun.... i'd go for sun every time...

i'm happy to be convinced otherwise tho'. go on, educate me...

i haven't got up to date passports and thats gonna cost me £150 before i have even gone to holiday in the sun.
I get homesick in different contries, and have never been to centre parks before.

Well we recently hired a 3 bed villa (the accommodation is lovely) for £400 in June, for four nights. That was split between two couples. So for £200 we had a five day break, which included free entry to the swimming pool. We stayed in a beautiful place in the middle of a forest, self catered (cheapest way), and paid for a few "treats" - spa for me, some clay pigeons etc for him, golf for the other couple. We hired bikes, but you can take your own. Not sure if this is great value or not, but it seems ok to me. Biggest plus is that dd (3) was in her element - just so much to do.

What age are your kids? My five year old loves Centerparcs, and they cater for little ones (and big ones) too. We've been to Longleat (near Bath) and Sherwood Forest.

hermione we recently been to centre parcs in longleat. it was amazing and fab for kids of all ages. we came home and bought a trailer for the kids that goes on the back of your bike. they all use them at centre parcs to get around. they are fab.
