Center Parcs is the perfect place for family holidays with toddlers in the UK. Little ones can find their feet in the forest, explore, discover and try something new with our wide range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Here are a few of the exciting activities that offer big adventures for little ones!


Mini Trek

Ages 2-5 years

This exciting aerial rope course is specially designed for younger children, giving them the chance to have their very own adventure in a safe, secure environment just one metre above the ground. Guide them and cheer them on as they balance, swing, leap and wobble their way around the course, building confidence as they go.


Off Road Explorers

Ages 3 to 7 years

It’s time to move over and let your little ones take a turn in the driving seat in our off-road adventure designed just for them. They’ll take to the wheel of a miniature 4x4, tackling rough terrain and rumble strips as they learn to steer and navigate our bespoke track.


Mini Captain’s Boat Hire

Minimum age 2 years (Only at Sherwood Forest and Elveden Forest)

Ahoy there! Hop aboard and set sail on an adventure as you and your little shipmate take to the lake on our special tiny trawlers. Watch your little one use their boating skills to navigate around the lake, soaking up the forest scenery and spotting wildlife, with you sitting right behind them.


Football Fun Factory for Tots

Ages 18 to 36 months

Introduce your toddler to the joys of football inside our inflatable football pitch. It’s the perfect environment for them to simply play and have fun, taking part in activities set by our superstar coach and learning a new set of football skills.


Mucky Pups

Ages 18 months to 5 years

Join your children for some squidging, sticking and splashing fun. Our Activity Den is packed with creative play stations where you can get messy together. Leave the clearing up to us and take your pictures home with you as a special memento of your time together at Center Parcs.



Ages 3-23 months or ages 24-35 months

Little ones can enjoy endless adventures in their crèche, cared for by our professionally trained childcare staff. They’ll encourage children to learn, develop and investigate, all in a happy, safe and stimulating environment. Why not book your little one into the crèche whilst you head off to enjoy a relaxing Spa Session in our Aqua Sana spa?
