So it’s all over – for another year at least. But that means it’s time to start planning next year’s adventures. Why not take 2020 by the horns and plan something exciting, new and usual for you and the kids? Just in case you’re in need of inspiration, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Center Parcs to suggest a few possibilities.
One way to get the new year off to a relaxing start is by taking a hot tub holiday. Center Parcs have kitted out a number of lodges at each of their villages with private hot tubs, including the Executive, Exclusive, Treehouses and Waterside Lodges. The tubs are enclosed in your own private garden, so privacy is guaranteed. You can spend your days exploring the forest and trying some of the fun activities before sinking into a bubbling tub and easing those tired muscles surrounded by the peaceful sounds of nature. Enjoy the tub as a family or wait for the kids to go to bed before enjoying a glass of wine and some stargazing from the water.
Centre Parcs' most luxurious options are their unique, two-storey treehouses, which combine all the best childhood fantasies with gorgeous interiors, an open-plan living area, a stylish, fully-equipped kitchen and four large, plush bedrooms. They have private decking and balconies with amazing views of the forest and entertainment for your entire troupe is guaranteed by a private games den, complete with pool table, games console and a stack of board games, along with an outdoor hot tub, sauna and entertainment system.
A forest holiday at Center Parcs is the an opportunity to relax, unwind and reconnect with nature: amid acres of natural woodland and winding trails, you can explore the great outdoors from sunrise to sunset, take a guided Wildlife Walk with experienced rangers or try one of the forest activities on offer. There is something for every age and personality, from Aerial Tree Trekking and Aerial Adventure rope courses to close-up encounters with the woodlands’ fascinating birds. There are also plenty of opportunities to get creative, using natural materials to create a family of woodland creatures as well as a habitat home for them to live in.
