    My brother is finally haying the knot and. We are down that neck of the woods and have a week off , ms crazycatlady has booked us for 5 days into centre parcs, it looks really cool loads to do and the pool of course is lovely. The stark park for the day and then home via Stonehenge.

    Paid a bit extra for wifi in our cabin, slit will be real ' back to nature stuff ;) '

    Cheers chief we have the magic show booked a zip wire and some bowling booked, the falconry looked cool but the boys were not in the right age groups at all which is a shame at 10 he fell between the age bands

    have been loads over the years but not longleat as its hilly and me + bike + hills bad mix they ususally have brillinat foodshops for the basics and fresh bakery daily a tip take a fire log (they are special log things to burn) with you for the fire as they are expensive there :)

    You will love it. I have been going to Center Parcs for 16 years. There is loads to do. And hopefully you will be near water as the ducks come right upto your door. As do the squirrels
