    Went to centreparcs in in Nottingham a few years ago as my partner was expecting and she couldnt fly, found it great but the park was huge and the food was amazingly expensive, im sure there must be a better alternative, i think its a good holiday to take if you want to lose weight, a bit like fat camp but without the drill instructor

    lost the other post but was looking for more experiences of the value for the cost of this from people who had been there. dont know anyone personally with experience to ask. i am wondering about the problem with getting round the site too as i have manual wheelchair so may be too much for me as cars are banned. cycling not an option unless the rest go without me. hoping for tips on whats worth spending the money and how much its likely to be to see if can budget for it.

    thanks thats the sort of feedback i was after. the expensive of this would mean we would have to cut back on everything so would need to be a really special holiday to be worth it for us. If i didnt think it would be i would be better investing in something else, especially as have to factor in a ferry crossing as well and loads of fuel.

    this site also lists loads of places to stay that have wheelchair access and days out that are suitable

    it might help, wont hurt emailing a few for prices.

    dont forget you dont have to eat out and the supermarket prices are not bad at the parcs also at the whinfell forest there is some very steep paths in the parc compared to nottingham

    If you are disabled you can get a pass for your car that allows you to drive around
