We recently returned from our second Woburn Center Parcs break. We were so taken with the whole Center Parcs experience as a family of four when we went last September we decided to take the extended family as a Mother’s Day weekend treat.

Our holidays at Center Parcs are very much focussed on family time and spending lots of time being active with the girls. Think pool time, bike rides and short tennis.
But, we decided as it was Mother’s Day and we were with my Mum and sister a few hours at the spa would be a lovely treat.
My sister and I surprised our Mum with one of the spa packages you can book online, we chose a 3-hour spa escape without treatments (I have heard the treatments are amazing so next time might book in for one of them).
I have heard only good things about the Aqua Sana spa at Woburn. It’s set in the woodland and is impressively huge. Aqua Sana is set over two floors and boasts 22 treatment rooms; from meditation rooms to rain showers to rooms with temperatures from cold to hot!
The spa makes full use of the beautiful views of Woburn, the infinity pool has views into the forest with the lake beyond and inside you’ll find a light and airy design spa with areas filled with colour and forest designs.
I knew the spa was large but I was wowed when we went in and all the different areas and experiences.
There are six main spa areas; Fire & Ice, Mineral & Gemstone, Blossom, Herbal, Sensory and Salt; each one with a variety of multi-sensory experience rooms. There is something for everyone and every taste. I’m not a huge fan of saunas but I found ones with a slightly lower temperature that I really enjoyed.
With all of these areas the spa never felt too busy (even though it was fully booked) but we did often have to go back to areas as some were more popular than others!
The infinity pool was amazing, with powerful jets perfect for aching shoulders and a beautiful view we spent quite a long time relaxing in the pool.
My favourite parts of the spa were the infinity pool, the reflexology foot baths (which were very popular and I would say they needed some more of), the salt steam room and the Saunas in the fire & ice spa.
We didn’t use the restaurant but my sister had a coffee which was well made. The food coming out looked good and if you were spending longer than a few hours there would be a good place to eat (the views and outdoor area were also lovely).
We had a fantastic few hours at the spa and I would highly recommend a trip there if you can find 3 hours (or more) to escape!
We paid £49 each for the spa experience but the price varies, once you’ve booked your beak you can log on and book experiences…
