Even if the weather hadn't been so good, we would have been fine. The Adventure Centre had all sorts of undercover activities, including miniature golf, a lego room, where I might have got a little bit carried away and forgot that I was meant to be an adult now, a Circus Zone for the under 5's, a massive adventure playground with slides & rope bridges, and the Big Four activities - high wire swings, climbs, rope trails & bungees, though this last one had an additional fee.
There's a full programme of activities daily, some are free of charge, but others are paid for. We didn't take part in any of the paid activities, because we found more than enough to occupy ourselves without doing so, and because Squeaky's still young enough to not know what else is going on. I can see though, if you have older children that there's the potential for things to get very expensive.
We visited the swimming pool every day, another activity included free in your break. There's no photos of this, mind, for obvious reasons. The pool was great fun, as long as you're not a serious swimmer, as there's nowhere you could swim lengths. Daddy spent much of his time on the slides, with 4 to choose from, he was occupied for a while. Squeaky alternated between the children's pool and the shallow end of the big pool, and I bobbed about in the waves and around the lazy river. I couldn't believe the lazy river went outside, and we were happily basking in an outdoor pool, in the UK, in April, at 5 in the afternoon. Unbelievable! There's a spa bath outside as well, for the over 12's. That was a bit of an experience, dashing from a warm swimming pool to a hot spa bath, when the air between the two is a bit on the nippy side! Made me enjoy the warm water all the more though!
