We really hope you’ll make the decision to continue with your break, we’ll contact you no later than four weeks before your break to let you know what facilities are available.

We understand if you do not wish to visit Center Parcs, therefore if you are within 11 weeks (UK bookings) or 6 weeks (Ireland bookings) of your arrival date you may cancel for free with a full refund, or you can move your break to a date in the future with no amendment fee. For more details see our Book and Stay Guarantee.

In our UK villages, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is now open. Our Aqua Sana will also be open for guests on a Center Parcs break for spa sessions and treatments*. 

*Elveden Forest is open for treatments only from 25 May 2021.


We look forward to welcoming guests back to Longford Forest from 4 June.  Our Subtropical Swimming Paradise will be open for breaks arriving on 18 June onwards, and Aqua Sana will be open for treatments and retail only from 4 June.

A full list of available indoor and outdoor activities will be available to view and book online no later than 14 days before arrival date, we’ll email to let you know when you can start booking. The only place you’ll be able to book activities is online via your Center Parcs account.

To keep contact to a minimum we won’t be accepting activity or takeaway bookings face to face on village.

You may arrive on village any time after 2pm on arrival day and your accommodation will be available from 4pm. As usual we would kindly ask you to leave your accommodation by 10am and departure anytime up to midnight.

No, we’re working hard to make the Center Parcs experience as safe as possible for our guests and staff. We’re trying to limit contact as much as we can and having cashless paying systems is a simple way to help achieve that.

We’ll have a number of measures in place – please see what to expect on your break.

We need to protect our staff and guests and so we’re asking anyone with symptoms of coronavirus not to visit us. Please contact for help and advice.

Yes, all our lodges will be ventilated thoroughly once guests leave on departure day. We’re carrying out enhanced cleaning as standard, including additional cleaning of touchpoints such as handles, taps and TVs. Some small items are removed from accommodation to help reduce touch points and prevent the spread of the virus.

Every lodge will be checked by a supervisor before guests arrive to ensure we are always meeting the highest standards.

We’re also carrying out enhanced cleaning, in our central areas, paying particular attention to touchpoints and areas with high footfall, as well as toilets, changing rooms, buggy parks and bins.

Some of our retail outlets, including ParcMarket, will be open and you can expect to see the same social distancing rules you will have experienced on your local high street.

Our retail partner has been severely affected by the pandemic. As a result, they have decided to no longer operate in the fashion sector meaning that they have closed some of their stores on our villages. Aquatique, Just for Kids and The Store Room will remain open, but unfortunately, Spirit, Sportique and Time for Shade are now closed. We know these stores are firm favourites with our guests and we are working hard to look at new and exciting alternatives to add to our retail offering.

All refunds for breaks impacted by the closure period are now complete. If you are waiting to hear from us please send us an email using the link at the bottom of this page and we’ll take a look.

If you have cancelled using our website, it may take a few days for the refund to show in your account. If you have been unable to cancel on our website and are waiting to hear from us please send us an email using the link at the bottom of this page and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

To allow you time to decide if you would like to continue with your break, move your break date or cancel for a full refund, we’ve decided to reduce the final balance payment date on existing bookings to 3.5 weeks for all breaks up until 29th April 2021 and to 5 weeks for all breaks from 30th April to 20th June. All other break dates for all villages remain at the usual 10 weeks. In addition, all bookings both new and existing can enjoy the peace of mind of our Book and Stay Guarantee.

To maintain social distancing we have had to limit the number of guests on village, therefore we are not currently accepting day visitors.
