Center Parks

We decided to spend 2002 christmas on our own. We booked ourselves a week at Center Parks in the Lake District.

This picture is me and Steve on Christmas day. Even though we was going away, I still went out and bought a Christmas tree.

We decided that we should see a bit of the Lake District and not stay in the camp all the time - we did the way from London so we thought it be good to get out and see the place.

Any activities outside center parcs I have out them in the off the Beaten Track.

Christmas Lunch

You must pre-book your christmas lunch. You get a booking form a few weeks before you leave. Ring up and book ASAP. We could not book our first choice but we still had a fab time. We was not rushed, which was great - took us about 3-4 hours to eat our meal.

Picture of me our Christmas lunch - out first together is 6 years!!!

Swimming on Christmas Day

Yes I did it. I went swimming on Christmas Dayb and it was great. Here's a picture of the Fab water world. This is the only activity free and you can stay as long as you like. There's a cool wave pool in here!!
