Center Parcs Escape Sherwood Forest

UK forests also provide the perfect setting for a short break to recharge your batteries and feel close to nature. At Center Parcs, kids and adults can take part in falconry and learn about birds of prey and enjoy having a hawk feed directly from your hand. And as a holidaying family of seven this is what we decided to do courtesy of Center Parcs. And whilst my niece was not happy to eat fruit ...

No fruit please !
She was more than happy to stroke the birds at the falconry session being braver than her older brother who just didn't want to have a go. I think the young Falconry session would have been ideal for them as it would have been tailored to their ages and temperament.

Center Parcs offer a wide range of lodges and villas to suit all tastes, from the simplicity of a Comfort Villa to the luxury of a Treehouse. All the villas and lodges at Center Parcs do, however, have one thing in common - they all offer you peace and tranquillity from the modern world, all within a woodland setting. We had decided to stay with in the Executive lodge with Games room and four bedroom complete as well with its own Sauna. And this was great way to relax at the end of the day after many an exhausting session such as Badminton.

We split the cost of the villa between the two families so whilst expensive I didn't mind as it was a unique experience and was my choice of holiday this year. And bearing in mind we were catering from an age ranging from 8 -42 you have to keep children amused especially the 42 year old!
