We have carefully designed activities, created menus and equipped Lodges with your little ones in mind. So before you visit Center Parcs with your toddler or baby, here’s your most-asked questions, answered.

Are cots and cot bedding supplied?

At all our Villages except Woburn Forest, one cot and a high chair are provided in all two, three and four bedroom Lodges. The size of the cots provided are 121cm x 60cm and the mattress sizes are 116cm x 52cm.

At Woburn Forest, travel cots of length 127 cm, width 66cm, depth 77cm are provided, with wooden cots available on request, simply call our Contact Centre on 03448 267 723 ahead of your stay and we’ll arrange it.

If you’re staying at any of our Villages with a little one that requires the use of a cot, you will need to bring cot linen along with you.

Do you have any babysitters at Center Parcs?

Our Villages offer a professional babysitting service, if you fancy a romantic meal for two or a couple of hours in the spa. There is a minimum age of 3 months for this service and if you have three little ones under 5 or more than four children then an extra babysitter will be required.

The cost of this service is up to £8.50 per hour. But a bit of me time? Priceless.

You are able to book a babysitter through our activity booking website or you can call the Contact Centre on 03448 267 723.

Can I hire a pushchair?

You can hire a pushchair at all our Center Parcs Villages for a small charge. You are able to pre-book these and collect them on arrival at collection points around each Village.

At Sherwood Forest you can collect your pre-booked pushchair from Activity Den, except on a Monday and a Friday where they can be collected from Guest Services.

At all other Villages pre-booked pushchairs can be collected from the Cycle Centre.

Do we have a Crèche?

At all Center Parcs Villages, sessions in our Crèche are available at our Ofsted-registered Activity Den, for ages 3 to 23 months and 24 to 35 months. In these non-parent accompanied sessions, your little ones will learn and develop in a stimulating, safe environment.

For times and availability, find out more here.

Do we have to keep within the age ranges for activities?

All our activities at Center Parcs have age criteria to ensure the safety and enjoyment of each guest taking part. For all activities, participants must meet the age criteria, with some activities requiring an adult over the age of 18 to participate. If in doubt, check with our Guest Services team during your stay or a member of staff at a booking point.

How will I get my little ones into the centre if they can’t ride a bike?

If you’re looking for an easy way to get around the Village then the Cycle Centre offer the perfect solutions. You can hire adult bikes which are specially tailored for you and your little ones. Adult bikes are available with a child seat on the back for a single child or a small trailer designed for little ones aged 6 months and above. Check out our Cycle Centre video here to find out which bike is best for you.

If you’re staying at Longleat Forest, our Land Train allows you to easily get from A to B.

A timetable is available on arrival, however in general the Land Train runs from 8:30am to 11.00pm every 20 minutes, with times varying on arrival and departure days.

What activities are there for under 5s?

At all our Villages, Activity Den offers a range of fun and stimulating activities you and your little ones can enjoy, such as Mucky Pups, Forest Crafts and Toddler Party Hour. You can learn more about preschool breaks at Center Parcs here, or find a full list of activities available on your break on our activities booking website.

    How about my question? “Why do you have such unhelpful security staff and how come it’s so difficult to get ill children off-site?”
