Center Parcs for Adults – What You Need to Know!

Center Parcs is primarily marketed as a forest getaway for families. However, you don’t need kids to go to Center Parcs. In fact, Center Parcs is also great for adults, whether solo travellers, couples, or groups.

Sadly, there’s no dedicated adults-only Center Parcs village or area.

However, adults will still have a fantastic time at Center Parcs. I say that from experience, as my wife and I spent our UK honeymoon at the Sherwood Forest Center Parcs village and had a fantastic time.

Best Center Parcs Village for Adults

There’s very little difference between the Center Parcs villages in the UK. As such, there isn’t a ‘best Center Parcs village for adults’.

Most people who have been to multiple Center Parcs villages have a favourite. However, it’s often just personal preference. Instead, I recommend booking the Center Parcs village closest to you.

Best Center Parcs Lodges for Adults

There’s little difference between Center Parcs villages. However, there are many differences between the different Center Parcs lodges.

In this case, I recommend filtering your Center Parcs lodge search by features. The different features a Center Parcs lodge has included:

  • Steam room
  • Sauna or Infrared room
  • Games room
  • Mediahub
  • Two storey
  • Single storey
  • Detached
  • Hot tub
  • Dedicated parking nearby
  • Hydrobath
  • Log burner
  • En-suites
  • TV in all bedrooms
  • Sky package
  • Updated style
  • Log burner or electric fire

When I visited Center Parcs as a couple with my wife, we spent a lot of time in our lodge, reading and relaxing. As such, it was worth it for us to upgrade to extra facilities instead of spending money on activities.

Best Center Parcs Activities for Adults

One of the best things about Center Parcs is the different activities available. Some of the best Center Parcs activities for adults include:

  • Aqua Sana Spa
  • High Ropes Challenge
  • Archery
  • Laser Combat
  • Pottery Painting Workshop
  • Indoor Climbing Adventure
  • Segway Experience
  • Tennis
  • Bowling
  • Canoeing and Kayaking
  • Stand-up Paddleboarding

You can book Center Parcs activities online in advance or in person. However, popular activities can sell out, so I recommend reserving them as soon as you book your break.

Is Center Parcs Good for a Stag or Hen Weekend?

As a family-orientated destination, Center Parcs does not encourage stag or hen parties or offer stag or hen packages.

However, groups are welcome at Center Parcs, and my wife Helen has been on a hen weekend there in the past.

That being said, this wasn’t your traditional hen party. Instead, it was more of a girls’ weekend. They relaxed in the spa, enjoyed take-out, and played board games.

Is Center Parcs Good for a Honeymoon?

My wife and I got married abroad. As such, when we returned to the UK, we were ready to spend time together alone as a newlywed couple.

We spent four nights at Center Parcs and found it the ideal UK honeymoon destination.

Sadly, Center Parcs does not offer any dedicated honeymoon lodges or packages. However, I recommend booking a lodge with a hot tub or a sauna. We spent much of the time in the lodge on our honeymoon getaway. We ordered take-out, read books and enjoyed each other’s company.
