You can book a Center Parcs break for a three-night weekend (Friday-Monday), four-night midweek (Monday-Friday) or seven-nights (starting Monday or Friday). Breaks over the festive period may vary from this pattern.
Center Parcs came to the UK in July 1987, when it opened its first village in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, offering short break holidays on a year-round basis. More than 25 years later, the name Center Parcs has become synonymous with the provision of an exceptional short break experience in a natural forest location.
The Center Parcs concept is to provide short breaks in the forest, bringing families together and back to nature with high quality accommodation, a range of outstanding leisure facilities and more than 200 indoor and outdoor activities, all set within a protected and enhanced woodland environment. Center Parcs operates five villages in the UK: Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire; Elveden Forest in Suffolk; Longleat Forest in Wiltshire; Whinfell Forest in Cumbria and Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire. Opening in County Longford, Ireland, in 2019 is Center Parcs Longford Forest, the first of our villages outside the UK.
