During the May half term holiday, we spent the week on a Canvas Holiday at Camping Duinrell staying in one of the new Moda mobile homes. The accommodation was perfect for us for the week as a self-catering family but what made the week even better was the unlimited access to the Duinrell theme park that was included in our stay.
Duinrell catered for children of all ages and included a soft play area, shows, ball pits, shadow room and lots of fabulous detail all around the site. There were lots of parks and play equipment for the kids to play on as well as rides of all sorts from rowing boats, bumper cars and roller coasters.
The Duinrell site was well organised with everything close together so as not to waste space. It seemed that every time we visited we found something new tucked away and it was a real adventure wandering around to see what we could find. The whole site was really well maintained and themed and as well as rides we found lots of interactive areas such as the castle where you press buttons to make a variety of things move. The girls particularly liked the button that made a statue of a little boy squirt water out as though he was going to the toilet! We found a variety of theatre seating areas that included mechanical storytelling characters which the girls loved watching.
We hardly went on the rides whilst we were there as there was just so much to do and a week just wasn’t long enough to experience it all.
The Duinrell site wasn’t just about the theme park though, there was also the Tiki pool water park which includes 11 water slides, a lazy river, kids pool, jacuzzi, sauna and a wave pool. This was not included in the price of our stay but for just four euros for two hours it was very good value.
The Duinrell site also features a pub which has a kids disco, karaoke and a variety of different evening entertainment scheduled throughout the week. We also found a fabulous indoor games room which had some brilliant family games to play and a bouncy castle for the kids to wear themselves out on before bed. If that wasn’t enough you could always hire a bike or go kart to explore the site or take a walk along the many paths through the forest. There is also an Adventure Mountain area which includes forest rope courses, zip lines and more. Unfortunately, this was only open two days of the week we were there and we missed the opportunity to have a go but it is definitely on our to-do list if we return.
If you are looking for a great Self-catering holiday for the family with lots to do already included in the price then I would highly recommend a visit to Camping Duinrell in the Netherlands.
