Center Parcs Competition. I give you… Treefall!

24 Nov

I am sooooooo excited about the latest Center Parcs competition over on Tots100.  Anyone who read my review of our holiday there last year will know that I am a huge fan and would love to go back again.

Center Parcs have recently launched a fantastic new water slide at Elveden Forest and to celebrate ‘Tropical Cyclone‘ and also their 25 year anniversary, they are asking us to put on our thinking caps and come up with what we think would be our perfect water slide.

We put our heads together as a family and came up with what we think would be a pretty cool water feature.  I give you…… ‘Treefall!’


We wanted this water feature to represent everything that we love about Center Parcs. You start your ride in the entry pool where you board your family dinghy which is actually designed to look just like a bird’s nest. The pool currents take you around the pool and into a lift area where your dingy is transported skywards using a technique similar to that you would see in a canal boat lock system. You are transported higher and higher up into the giant redwood tree passing some treetop creatures along the way!

When you arrive at your destination (an amazing treetop house), you choose which of the three slides you wish to go down by grabbing the ropes at the entrance to the slide and pulling yourself over the edge and into a super cool exhilarating ride. The slides each look like a tree branch from the outside so for anyone that has read ‘The Faraway Tree’ this will be just like the ‘slippery slip’!

When your ride is almost finished you will fly through some reed beds and finally, enter an underground cave where you can either depart the ride OR if you’re feeling brave, get right back on again!


Win a Spa Day at Cedar Falls Health Farm

28 Feb

Peace and tranquility await you at Cedar Falls

I’ve been lucky enough to stay at Cedar Falls in the past.  My mum and I went a couple of times, before the children arrived and I actually had time to myself!  Set in a stunning location in Somerset, Cedar Falls is a haven of peace and tranquility. From the moment you arrive it’s as if you have stepped back in time.  No televisions, no mobile phones and no laptops, just time to read, chat, relax and be pampered.

Banish any thoughts of stuffy, clinical health farms with carrot juice and colonic irrigation. Cedar Falls is more like a posh hotel with spa facilities. When you arrive you are given a big fluffy robe to wear for the duration of your visit and if it is your first stay you will be given a guided tour of the spa from one of the friendly members of staff. There are many exercise and fitness classes available which are all included in the cost of your stay.  Treatments are available for an extra fee and, having tried a few I can highly recommend then.  The therapists are wonderful, very friendly and they truly go out of their way to make you feel relaxed.

In between yoga or massage you can chill in the hot tub, pool, steam room, sauna or swimming pool. We used to spend a lot of time lazing in the indoor or outdoor pool, reading and chatting.  I can’t actually think of a better way to unwind than a visit here.

The food at Cedar Falls is fantastic. Lunch is buffet style and there’s no teeny tiny portions here. Just help yourself to whatever you want. We don’t all go to a health farm to count calories do we! Dinner is a 3 course meal, with wine if you want it. I can usually be persuaded to have a glass or two…
