We spent our second week of school holidays in Whinfell forest Center Parcs. We have been to this one before, but this time it was a new experience, as we spent the week with friends. Considering there were 6 children and 3 adults in one lodge, we all got on beautifully. The big two gained a real sense of independence going off swimming with their friends so it was an insight to how we will be ditched in favour of friends in a few years time! We got more quality time as a couple with the little two, seeing the joy on their faces as their swimming improved and they experienced slides and flumes for the first time.
Finlay, Daisy and Florence all had a go at climbing and Teddy who isn’t one for heights enjoyed archery and crazy golf. We don’t do an awful lot of paid activities or eating out when we’re there as we make the most of the pool and eating a bit more frugally with picnics and cooking in the lodge. But we did treat them all to pancakes on the last day at the pancake house. Next week sees us back to routine and I hope the children share their fun tales of their week in Whinfell forest.
