Wonderful Family Holiday. The lodges are so clean and spacious. The forest is just perfect. The swimming pool was great for all of us. Loved the spa. What a place that is!!
We use the sports bar which had a great play area for the little ones. Plenty restaurants to use. Booking for next year !!!"

@Sarah L - October 2023, Sherwood Forest

"We ♥️ our breaks at Center Parcs, it never disappoints for a fun but relaxing time.
It gives us quality family time, a lovely place, great accommodation & facilities.
Friendly staff and love the setting and the wildlife. We ate out a few times on our visit and were very happy with the service and the quality of the meals and really make a fuss of your little ones too.
Hucks will definitely be top of the list to go to next time we visit.
The swimming and flumes and tropical cyclone were really good too….
Looking forward to booking our next break and starting our yearly trips again to Center Parcs. Thanks again Center Parcs for a really special break - None of us were ready to leave!!!"

Surpassed expectations

@Helen M - November 2021, Longleat Forest 

From the first booking the visit surpassed all expectations . We’ve put off coming before because we thought it would be too organized for us but with 4 families with a range of ages it was ideal. The staff were amazing and to a person, we’re helpful, and pleasant"

Excellent family holiday

@Eileen - Nov 2023, Longleat Forest 

"We love coming here! The accommodation was spotless. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need. The bedlinen was clean and crisp and the beds were very comfy. The staff at each activity and in each restaurant were exceptional. They are all so kind and friendly and can't do enough for you. Although our week was action packed we found time to soak up the peacefulness of the forest and even enjoyed a short visit from a muntjac deer one evening. Our 9 year old was thrilled. Handy hint- young ones love the robot waiters in Bella Italia!"

Wonderful family reconnect in our busy lives, 3 to 67 having fun..

@Beatrice L - November 2023, Elveden Forest

"Lovely tranquil calm setting. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit with the amazing colours. Beautiful walks and amazing scenary. Pool is fun and something for all the family. Nice mix of retail shops."

A brilliant family fun weekend

@Mld - November 2023, Elveden Forest

"Superb family fun. Lodge was clean, roomy yet cosy. Loads of family orientated activities. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and super friendly. Some of the activities were a bit pricey but at the end of the day, they were all things we wouldn’t do at home and they were really well organised."

Top experience

@inas a - November 2023, Woburn Forest

"This was not our first time visiting Center parcs Woburn, my kids love it and every half term they ask if we can go there . My kids are 17 , 12 and 10 and there is something for everyone. We enjoyed cycling all of us around the forest, we played badminton many times and of course all of us enjoyed the swimming pool . We went by train from London st pancras to Flitwick station and there we found the shuttle bus waiting for us outside of the station . Everything went smoothly because of the friendly staff and well organised system. Lodges are very clean and completely equipped. The parc market was good and have everything that we needed. Will definitely be back soon"

Great family memories

@Cruiser15655991169 - October 2023, Woburn Forest

"We’ve been to many of the Center Parcs locations both in the UK and also Paris and we love it… especially Woburn! When your kids say that they are going to their “second home” because they enjoy it so much and have fabulous memories from previous trips, it makes you feel great as a parent. No matter what the weather, they love the activities, with a great combination of things to keep everyone amused outside and indoors and knowing that there’s loads of food choices for picky kids is also brilliant! My wife loves the spa and I love parking my car up and not worrying about it for a week or so. Overall a great experience with more incredible memories and as always we will be back. Thanks"
