The impressive glass covered Village Centre is a lively focus for a variety of activities and there's a fine tradition of live entertainment in the Green Room.

Whinfell Forest is a great place for wildlife watchers and nature lovers, so there are magical moments in store, especially when you catch sight of the red squirrels.
