Center Parcs

So at the weekend me and simon made the 4 hour trip north to meet all of our best friends in sherwood forest at center parcs! I started planning the little trip at the beginning of June and it seems flown around! I actually think Centre Parcs is the perfect UK getaway .. and is suitable for any personality or age group! 
Im lucky enough to have a bunch of friends which are a mixture of boys and girls and we all get along fab! There was 10 of us which went to center parcs and it was just the most perfect little weekend away! Made even better by the fact it was now the center parcs christmas season which meant that we were able to see the reindeer and christmas lights etc.. and also I sampled my first mulled wine of the year! Mulled wine is definitely one of my favourite things ever about christmas and now ive had it i am well and truly in the mood for this season! 
What i also love about center parcs is that its the perfect excuse for a chilled and snuggly weekend wearing lovely warm clothes and being less bothered about dressing up fancy. My wardrobe choices for this weekend involved endless pairs of boots, fluffy jumpers, bigggg snuggly scarves and leggings! 
Some of the activities which we got involved in were swimming, biking, badminton, table tennis, bowling and they were all sooo much fun! Also on a night as there isnt much to do and we were fortunate enough to have a gorgeous lodge we all stayed in and cooked, drank loads of alcohol (too much but hey ho), played loads of drinking games etc. Honestly i feel so fortunate to have such a close bunch of friends which are a mixture of boys and girls with so many different personalities and interests! 
If anybody is looking for a little weekend or even a midweek break with their friends or family or even just their other half.. i would 110% recommend centre parcs! Its fab! And even though it may seem a little bit pricey its definitely worth it for what you get when you're there and how well its run! Book well in advance would also be a little tip and you can pay by deposit and then pay the remainder 10 weeks before you go which is fab! I have been to Whinfell forest (penrith, cumbria) and now sherwood forest (nottingham) and both were brilliant! Definitely recommend a visit! everyone should go and check out their website and see for yourselves or have a little peak at my instgram 'lthwaitesx' for some photos of what we got upto! Let me know your thoughts on centre parcs too.. or even any other little UK getaways that you have enjoyed because id love to give some more a go for a perfect little relaxing weekend!!
