I won a break through work last year and opted to go to Bristol. A wonderful hotel but he craved being outside and not enclosed in a small room.
Alyssa, on the other hand, absolutely could get used to the first class attention she received. She could be a 'lady who lunches'.
This year we are heading to 'Sunny Hunny' as they can spend literally all day outside, on the beach or investigating local areas. Right up their street. And mine. The beach is one of my favourite places.
I've been to Centre Parcs just once before with some friends . It was absolutely brilliant and I loved every second of it. It was wonderful just being able to do what we wanted, when we wanted. An ideal location to take my children too as well as there was so much for them to do. I would particularly love to take them down the rapids at Elveden Forest as that was certainly a highlight for me.
My ideal day there would be to wake up early. Yes, early! After years of asking them to not wake me up too early in the mornings. We would eat breakfast as a family and then be out the door with swimming costumes at the ready. We'd have a quick walk around the forest and then head for 'Subtropical Swimming Paradise.' They'd have such fun there that I imagine it would be hard to drag them out to get something to eat.
Lunch would possibly be the biggest decision to make as there are so many places to eat but Huck*s sounds good to me ~ an American diner.
After a big meal, we will possibly head back to where we are staying or go on a nature trail. Nothing too adventurous for me anyway. Maybe I'd let them look at the activity list where they could choose archery, pottery painting or even a cupcake class. (Can I join in with the cake one please?)
The day would end with them both drifting off into a peaceful sleep ready for the next action-packed, fun-filled day.
The video that inspires me the most is "An adventure with little ones". They will love being outside and I will enjoy the relaxing environment. Might even let Mum come along too so she can have a break from it all. She'll be in the spa if anyone wants her I'm sure.
