Four go to Sherwood Center Parcs (as going abroad felt like too much hard work!)

In late 2018 Sam I discussed going abroad for our 2019 family holiday. Little H starting school in September means this would be our last opportunity before needing to pay crazy school holiday prices. But Christmas came and went. Then I started back at work.

Last weekend we went on a long weekend break with the in-laws to the Woburn Forest Center Parcs near Bedford. Living in Hertfordshire, it was a wonderfully convenient 40 minute journey.
