Dogs at Center Parcs

Dog Owners' Advice - Updated 18th May 2017

In recent years, an unexplained dog illness known as 'seasonal canine illness' has been found in an increasing number of forest areas around the UK, particularly in late summer and early autumn. The illness is currently believed to be triggered by a naturally occurring cause and has affected a number of dogs in areas across the country, including those local to some of our villages, particularly Sherwood and Elveden Forest. This issue is still under investigation and there is no comprehensive explanation as to why it has occurred. We are therefore pre-warning all guests who plan to bring a dog to Center Parcs and recommend consulting the Animal Health Trust for the latest information.

Cases of Alabama Rot have also been reported around the country in 2017. This is another unexplained disease affecting dogs. None of our Center Parcs villages have been identified as locations with cases of Alabama Rot, but in the interest of vigilance we recommend dog owners familiarise themselves with the symptoms on the Forestry website.

If you are bringing a dog to one of our villages and are concerned, please call our Contact Centre team on 03448 266 266.

Please note: if you are visiting Longleat Forest, dogs are not allowed on our Land Train except guide dogs.

Parking on Village 

We are keen to keep our Villages as traffic free as possible so that guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the forest environment. There will of course be a small amount of traffic during times of developments and to support Village operation. However, once you have unloaded your belongings from your vehicle, we kindly request that all guests move their cars to the car park as soon as possible, on the day of arrival. In response to recent feedback from our guests, the Security team will be supporting this by requesting that all cars left on the Village after this time, are moved. Should the accommodation type include a car parking space, please use the space allocated.

Using hoverboards on your break - 23rd December 2015

Center Parcs

External Shows, Events and Festivals - 10th November 2015

Because our Villages are set in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK, they are often close to popular tourist areas which can mean increased noise and traffic in the surrounding area. Despite our best efforts to preserve the tranquillity of the forest in our Villages, there may occasionally be noise from local events, shows and music festivals.

It's never too early to have a short break in the diary, so book now and give yourself something amazing to look forward to.

Forestry works at Center Parcs

Forestry works

As we are in a forest setting it is essential that we manage the environment and preserve the natural outlook. This means that from time to time forestry works such as tree felling may be taking place during your break with us.






The lake in winter at Center Parcs

The lake in winter 

Being close to nature is an important part of a Center Parcs break, but it also means our Villages are subject to the whims of British weather! For this reason, and for our guests’ safety, each year our lakes are closed for watersports during December and most of January. Activities run on the lake in November and from the end of January will be subject to weather conditions. But don’t worry, we still have plenty of indoor and outdoor activities available during this time, from cosy indoor crafts to bracing bike rides.
