Our Holiday at Center Parcs Whinfell Forest

Last week we spent an fantastically relaxing week away at Center Parcs.

We normally visit the Sherwood Forest resort but this time we ventured to the other side of the country to visit the Whinfell Forest resort. We are huge fans of Sherwood Forest and hoped that Whinfell Forest would be as great. It certainly lived up to our expectations! We had such a relaxing break and came away feeling well and truly recharged.

We spent the week with my parents which was lovely for all of us. It is a huge help for the hubby and I to have the children's grandparents there to lend a helping hand, the children adore having them around, we always have lots of giggles and I also enjoy having the quality time with them!

As always we decided to hire bikes for the week. For us, having the bikes is part of the Center Parcs experience. Riding through the forest is all part of the fun and the escapism from day to day life. No cars, just riding the bikes and walking. Plus Joseph loves having the freedom to go on bike rides to the park, the twins have so much fun in the trailer and the hubby and I feel a little less guilty after all of the over indulgence.
This time we decided to let the children have an activity day. The twins had 3 hours being pirates and princesses in the Activity Den while Joseph had 3 hours doing the Woodland Games. This gave us the chance to spend quality time with the twins in the morning and then with Joseph in the afternoon. Next time we visit Center Parcs we will definitely be letting the children do more activities as they all loved their time out! The children had an amazing holiday playing in the woodland, seeing beautiful woodland creatures, playing adventure golf, making teddy bears, puddle jumping, bowling, swimming, soft play, pool and spending quality time together as a family!

The hubby and I even managed to escape on evening to have a meal out while my mum and dad looked after the children. This is something that the hubby and I do not do enough so it was a lovely treat.

Here are the highlights of our holiday in pictures...
