I've just returned from a fantastic holiday in Centre Parcs.

I went with my boyfriends family and all his little nieces and nephews. We stayed at Whinfell Forest in Cumbria as it was sort of halfway between where everyone lives. If you've never been to CentreParcs before I can thoroughly recommend it, in fact we liked it so much that this was our second visit staying in exactly the same woodland lodges that we had last time.

There's loads of activities to do whilst your there including tennis, badminton, quad biking, horse riding, a big indoor swimming pool, archery, paintball and loads of other stuff.

Despite not being the most sporty of people, we played a lot of squash and got pretty good at it (in fact most of my holiday photos seem to feature a squash court...) As well as tennis which we weren't so good at, and mainly seemed to involve collecting the balls that we'd hit into bushes.

As well as sports, Centre Parcs is located in the middle of a very manicured looking forest so there's lots of animals to see too. There was constantly a family of ducks wandering through the back garden outside our lodge. There were also pheasants, rabbits, badgers (which you can watch on the TV on the special badger channel!) We even took a trip to the bird hide where there were loads of squirrels and birds.

We also did lots of cycling 
Took lots of photos
and made some new friends...
