Sherwood Forest Village Square

A makeover for our Village Square - 23rd February 2017

The ParcMarket in the heart of the Village Square recently received a modern new look so we’ve decided it’s now time to spruce up some of our other Village Square stores. Just Kids, Pottery Painting Studio, Dining In and The Store Room will be receiving external makeovers of their own.

Work will begin on these stores on 27 February and will end on 1 April.

But not to worry - all our stores will stay open during the refurbishment so you can still pick up a gift for a loved one or treat for yourself.

Why not take a look at a range of stores available at Center Parcs?
