Has anyone been to centre parcs between Christmas and new year (not actually Christmas or New Years itself though)
I’m wondering how festive it was? The website states winter wonderland until 3 January and implies all the fake snow and decorations and festive activities are still on but when we’ve rung up they’ve said the seasonal activities have finished and decorations have started coming down!!
Just hoping for some experiences from anyone who has been over this time?

We went in 2016 and arrived on the 30th December. The decoration for the park was amazing, beautifully decorated with fake snow and a lot of lights and very Christmassy! Real reindeers and lovely Christmas displays.

Thank you. I’m hoping this is the case. I’ll be gutted if they’ve started taking the decorations down.

I’ve been for actual Christmas twice and the few days after and it’s beautiful.

I'm here now and have been in New Year when most decorations are still up. They have the fireworks mid week still I think.

We go every year, it’s brilliant!

we always take wild bird seed (from wilko`s) and a couple of fat ball in cocnut shells from wilko`s for around the patio. had lots of birds, ducks, squirrels (they like crisps and our biscuits!), deer.

just over an hour away at horsey the seals are on the beach as its pupping season. or go to winterton on sea and walk towards horsey. nice cafe, loos and carpark.
