Thrifty tips for visiting Center Pacs

I recently took part in a fab hangout with Tots100 on hints and tips for visiting Center Parcs.

We visited Whinfell Center Parcs earlier in the year on a budget and I wanted to share with you my hints and tips for making the most out of Center Parcs on a budget.

  1. Visit the supermarket before you go.  Even if you are planning on eating out, make sure you take basics such as salt, pepper, washing up liquid, tea towels etc. 
  2. Plan picnics so take tin foil or bags for sandwiches
  3. You can hire bikes, but you can also take your own, if so make sure you take helmets and bike locks too
  4. We only ate out once during our trip, instead choosing to eat in  the lodge.  There is also a BBQ, so take some BBQ coal with you
  5. There is a fire in the lodge, so take some fire sticks rather than buying them on site
  6. Take board games and a DVD for family nights
  7. The swimming pool is ace and including in the price of your holiday, so make the most of it.  But take with you towels and goggles and even a ball.
  8. take sports kit with you including footballs, tennis bats and balls too.  You can use the facilities if they are not booked for free with your own equipment.
  9. The play areas are ace and free too
  10. You don't get access to your lodge till 3pm, but there is nothing stopping you checking in early from 10am and using the facilities.  This is a great way to make the most out of your stay.
