We have been visiting Center Parcs villages for several years, and we are never disappointed.
This trip marks my sister’s birthday and a final break before the reality of work and school kicks in.
We arrived on Friday to 35 Badger Woods: our address for the weekend. The lodges are practical with a homely feel. We love the open plan design which allows us to cook, eat and relax in the same space.
The past two days have been filled with swimming in the Tropical Pool area; Football-Pool in the Sports Plaza; long walks in the forest; heated games of Table Tennis. This is the first time I’ve not spent the equivalent to a monthly mortgage repayment on activities, and you know what? The boys haven’t complained about the lack of Field Archery, Paintball; Sedgeway experience one bit. In fact, it’s probably been a lot nicer an experience as we’ve not been rushing to get from one activity to another.
We’ve had late nights filled with home cooked meals and board games, followed by lazy mornings and bacon sarnies in bed.
It’s been perfect.
As I’m at work in the morning I’m getting ready to leave. The boys will stay here with my mum and sister, continuing the magic for another night, before returning to reality.
So, it’s with a very heavy heart that I load the car and get ready to travel home. Luckily the school year now consists of six week half terms, so not long until the next break with my loves.
I hope you are all enjoying every last minute of your Sunday. Squeeze the life out of it!
