Brand-new Electric Vehicle Charging Points

This summer guests will be able to recharge their batteries and their electric car too! Our EV charging points at Sherwood Forest will be available for guests arriving on a summer break. We have 75 charging points available to pre-book online and a small number of points available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guests will need to download the VendElectric App to charge their electric vehicle (payment is also made via the app). You will find our EV charging points on the first rows you come to in the guest car park, near Aqua Sana.

Charging points can only be booked on Mondays for four nights and Fridays for three nights. The points will charge the vehicles overnight, although they can remain safely plugged in throughout the whole duration of your stay – checking the status of the charge on the app.

Pre-book your electric vehicle charging point for peace of mind and a smooth arrival.

Forest safety

7 August 2020

During extreme dry weather spells we take advice from the Met Office, please see below some basic fire safety points:

  • Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking locations on village and on the patio/ balcony of accommodation
  • The use of wood from the forest is strictly prohibited for use on the fire in accommodation (please only use logs purchased from ParcMarket)
  • The making of fires of any sort is strictly prohibited
  • Should you discover a fire no matter how small, please contact the village emergency number or call 999
  • Due to our forest environment we may need to withdraw the use of BBQ’s in extreme hot weather

We do have regular fire checks in place but please be vigilant and help us to maintain a safe environment in the forest.

Dog owners' advice

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, including Sherwood 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.

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.

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