    Center Parcs Pony Rides Elveden Forest

    In December we visited Center Parcs Elveden Forest for the Winter Wonderland weekend. When looking at the activities we could book I saw that they offered the Pony Rides again. Ethan had been on the pony ride when we visited in May but Little E wasn’t old enough as you have to be two years old. Little E is really interested in horses but we wasn’t sure if she would be happy to ride one. Thankfully Little E wants to do everything her brother does at the moment so getting on the pony really wasn’t a problem. Ethan loved that his sister was joining him on the pony ride. He…

    Center Parcs Elveden Forest Pony Ride

    We haven’t been able to take Ethan on a pony ride for a while now. It’s something I wanted to do regularly with him as he has always enjoyed it. There is a riding school local to my mum’s house but pregnancy and Little E’s arrival stopped the plans. Darren’s shift pattern also doesn’t help and we just haven’t been able to fit it into our routine. So when I was looking through the activities we could book whilst on our Center Parcs break I was excited to see a pony ride option. This wasn’t available when we visited in March last year and we opted for a horse and…

    Center Parcs – Elveden Forest Aqua Sana Luxury Spa Suite

    Being that Darren’s birthday is in January, not long after Christmas, his birthday normally comes and goes with not much more than a birthday cake and cards. This year it had to be different because this year he turned forty, we couldn’t let that pass without marking the occasion. We discussed in length how Darren wanted to celebrate his big day. We discussed party options and meal options but with Ethan’s needs and an 18 month in tow we didn’t feel that it would be a very enjoyable experience for us all. Our family isn’t easy and everything has to be planned with military precision. We discovered that the Aqua…

    The Ducks at Elveden Forest Center Parcs

    We really enjoyed our Elveden Forest Center Parcs holiday, it was a much-needed break. The thing that really made our holiday extra special were the visits we had from the local wildlife. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Canadian Geese who knocked on the window demanding food. Ethan loved it. We had two resident ducks who would be outside our door all day ready and waiting for bread. Every morning we would feed the ducks and if they were very lucky they would get a treat during the day. Ethan was fascinated by our visitors and he would watch them all day. He would count them and…

    The Elveden Mini Farm

    When we visited Center Parcs we decided that one of the activities we wanted to do with Ethan was the Elveden Mini Farm. It was only a thirty minute activity but we knew that would be long enough for our little man. We arrived on time for the activity and we were able to walk around a look at the animals whilst we waited for the whole group to arrive. Ethan immediately rushed around to all of the different pens vocalizing all of the animals names. This amazed me as I think the only animals we had really seen up close were goats and chickens. With everyone present and correct…
