How to make the most of a rainy day at Center Parcs

Body Content

We’ve all been there, the countdown to our Center Parcs break is on and we find ourselves desperately refreshing our weather forecast app in the hopes that the rain symbols change to the sun. But don’t worry the unpredictable British weather doesn’t have to ruin your day, here are some fun things you can get up to with your family in the forest.

Get crafty

Keeping your little ones entertained can be a task on a normal day, but especially when the weather is grey, so keep them busy for an hour or two with a relaxing craft activity.

For your little ones eight years or older, try out the ancient art of willow weaving, as they learn from the experts how to delicately bend willow fronds into their own beautiful creation.

For your smaller ones, head to our Activity Den to get messy together with Mucky Pups. Where you can join your children in getting creative with paints, colours and stickers to create the ultimate masterpiece, that can be proudly placed on your fridge at home.

If you fancy some cosy time in your accommodation, why not try some autumn woodland crafts? Simply print out in advance our leaf template, get colouring with your little ones and cut the leaves out to make your own autumn wreath. Check out our autumn woodland crafts blog post for more inspiration.

Indoor adventures

If you have got a couple of hours to spare during the day, why not have an adventure with one of our indoor activities? With something for every age, you can keep everyone happy from the grown-ups to your little ones and even try something new.

Cook up some comfort food

When it’s miserable outside, there is nothing better than cosying up on the sofa by the fire and eating some warming food. For the ultimate comfort food why not try our one-pot pasta of dreams which is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser with your family. With very few ingredients, taking only 12 minutes to cook you will be back on the sofa in no time.

If you don’t feel like cooking because you are on holiday, after all, order from our new food delivery service for restaurant quality without having to leave your cosy accommodation. With options ranging from Indian, Italian to a British classic, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Make a splash

When you are in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, the weather outside doesn’t matter. Heated to a balmy 29.5C all year round you can still feel like you are in a tropical location without leaving the country. Pre-book your space to be able to relax in our whirlpools, tackle the Wild Water Rapids and most importantly escape the rain for an hour or two.
