Must haves for Center Parcs

We LOVED our holiday to Center Parcs and we will be re-booking for next year very soon. Below are a few things that I will be taking with me next time, some of which I did take this year and also some that I realised, whilst away this time, that would have been useful. Here they are... 

A friend had mentioned to me to take with us:
  • Toilet roll - you can buy more at the shop there but it is quite expensive.
  • Dishwasher tablets - again, you are provided with some but not enough for the week and it is cheaper to bring some from home than to buy in the on-site shop.
  • Towels for swimming
Next time, I would also bring:
  • Washing up liquid - none was provided at the cabin
  • Kitchen Roll
  • Coffee machine - we actually did take this with us this time, which was an absolute treat (we do like our coffee)!!!
  • Bird/Animal feed - there are so many birds and animals around the cabins; we gave them some bread but if you bring proper bird feed, I am sure you would be able to see loads more.
  • If you are going with a toddler/child and you have to stay in in the evenings, a few DVD's and blankets would be lovely (also wine if you are able to drink!!!).
  • You spend so much time outside because of the different activities so I would have definitely packed so many more layers given the chance again. When walking at night I was generally fine but when on the bike I was freezing! 
  • The kitchen was a little basic so one thing that I brought was a Lasagne that I had made at home and which just needed heating up. I would have brought more meals like this as it was so much easier (eating out with a toddler is just not as relaxing as eating at home!).

Let me know if you have any other suggestions on what we should take next time!
