If you’re looking for a gluten free holiday in the UK, then Center Parcs in Longleat is a great place to go!
Having just returned from a Mon-Fri trip to the Longleat Center Parcs, I was really suprised by the amount of choice that was available to me as a coeliac.
Steve and I visited Center Parcs with our friends Hannah and Lloyd, and it was honestly the most fun and revitalising week I have had in a long, long time!
If you are after a holiday that will leave you feeling healthy and refreshed (all dependent on the amount of wine consumed, of course!) then get to Center Parcs, hire a bike, hit the spa and don’t worry about not being able to eat!
The ParcMarket, the supermarket in the Parc, suprisingly stocks a good range of gluten free products.
There is a very small selection of gluten free pizzas (The DS version) and some (very!) expensive frozen pies which I didn’t try!
There is also a selection of gluten free basics, such as bread, flour, pancake mix, pasta and biscuits.
Eating out wise, my ultimate favourite was the Pancake House!
After asking and discovering they did gluten free pancakes (as well as omelettes, though I didn’t try these!) I indulged in several yummy pancakes over the week including the one pictured – with chicken, mushrooms, cheese and garlic mayo!
We also dined in Cafe Rouge, where they provided me with a menu showing what each meal contained.
Although there wasn’t a massive amount of gluten-free choices, I did enjoy a yummy salad with chicken, bacon and avocado….and a nice few glasses of rose wine!
Overall, I was really pleasantly suprised at the amount Center Parcs catered for coeliacs, and I barely went to half of the restaurants there!
