Treats at Whinfell Forest

New year, new look for Treats - 5th January 2017

Our favourite place at Center Parcs to pick up a delicious treat or two is getting a new look.

Treats will be closed from 23 January and will reopen on 13 February, so be sure to pop in to see what we’ve been up to.

Of course, we wouldn’t leave you without anywhere to pick up some sweet treats. ParcMarket will be offering some of your much-loved indulgences, including our popular pick and mix and delicious handmade fudge.

Swim Pups

STA Swim Pups - 7th September 2016

Unique to Center Parcs, STA Swim Pups is a new water activity designed for little ones aged 3 months to 4 years. The activity involves a structured swimming programme for mini swimmers to gain essential swimming and movement skills in a fun and exciting environment, through a series of enjoyable and stimulating games. Your little ones can cycle around the pool on a float, canoe on a pool raft and take part in an aquatic nature trail. As recognition of their achievement, they will be awarded with an STA certificate to take home.

Available at Whinfell Forest and Sherwood Forest from 7th September.

Center Parcs

Minimising traffic on the Village  - 12th July 2016

We need your help to minimise the amount of traffic so we can protect what you love about Center Parcs: a place where families (and wobbling children) can ride their bikes and are free to make the most of their time in the forest.

Mini Trek

Mini Trek now at Whinfell Forest - 5th July 2016

One of our Mini Adventures Together, this popular parent-and-child activity has arrived at Whinfell Forest. Mini Trek allows little ones from the age of two to join in with the Action Challenge fun. They can strap into a harness and explore our lightly elevated course, complete with platforms, bridges and jumps, all with you by their side to guide them.

It’s a great first taste of our aerial activities.
