Officially a Center Parcs convert!!
@maihemphotography - May 2023, Whinfell Forest
"I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing, safe, and friendly place to holiday with my dogs.
Every single staff member at the Whinfell Center Parcs were authentically friendly and happy.
All our booked activities were accessed with ease and thoroughly enjoyable.
The lodges were immaculately clean with everything you need for your break... and the bed was so comfortable, especially after a full day outside walking or doing fun activities.
As someone who has never been to Center Parcs before, this is definitely a UK holiday I'll be booking on a yearly basis from now on."

"Our lakeside apartment was a perfect size. We didn't need a lodge as there was only two of us. It was very clean and overlooked rows of trees, which was great for watching the birds. The park is beautifully maintained and very clean. Lovely paths to enjoy our daily walks and endless activities on hand. The food we had from restaurants was delicious and were generous with their portions. It's a great location for visiting the lakes."

"This was our second visit to Center Parcs Whinfell Forest amd it was just as good as I remembered.
The activities were first class, the accommodation was excellent along with the food and beverage facilities on the park.
Will definitely be back in this summer.
Thank you for an awesome holiday with great memories Center Parcs."

"Went there to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. We have two children - 5 and 8 years old and we also had our parents with us. What an amazing family experience! The swimming facilities and the huge number of water-based activities were thoroughly enjoyed by use. You don't have a dull moment in this perfect holiday destination!"

@Barbara L- May 2023, Longleat Forest
"What a wonderful magical place. So peaceful and set in the midst of a nature wonderland and yet there is so much to do for people of all ages.
Facilities are amazing and all the staff couldn't be more helpful. There's a subtropical swimming paradise that is second to none, shops, restaurants, a spa, woods, lake and a beach. Highly recommend whether you are 2 or 82."
Worth every penny
@Charlotte E - May 2023, Longleat Forest
"We had a fantastic long weekend with our children. We stayed in one of the older 2 bedroom lodges and it was perfect for us, very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were on the edge of the forest and we were visited by deer and ducks which was magical.
The pool is excellent and we spent loads of time there, the changing rooms were very clean & all the staff were lovely. We booked kayaking and night golf which was enough for us together with the pool.
We will definitely be back as there is so much more to do and our young teens loved it."
The perfect family escape
@SuBra - May 2023, Elveden Forest
"Second visit with a family group from 12 to 78 years including family member reliant on mobility scooter. We had a wonderful time. There is so much to do and the lodge in Birch was so relaxing looking into the Forest and being visited by geese with goslings, deet etc.
The pool is fantastic. My son and I dared go on the cyclone again loved it. Also both did the Aerial adventure with zip line over the lake which was a real adrenaline rush adventure. My mum was always picked up and transported to the carpark when we did outings. The staff here were all so incredibly friendly and helpful and always had a smile and solution for any problems. When mum got lost in the evening on the scooter one accompanied her slowly alongside until she got home safely.
We are already planning next year's visit and will bring friends. Thank you for the wonderful stay."
Fantastic fun filled family break
@Sally H - May 2023, Elveden Forest
"We all had a wonderful holiday, our ages ranged from 63 years down to two years and there really was something for everyone, baby ballerina, Little dolphins and toddler football for my granddaughter and oh course lots of fun in the swimming pools, for the adults; kayaking and badminton along with swimming, walking in the beautiful woodlands and eating out at different restaurants in the evenings.
Our accommodation was clean, stocked with everything that we needed with lots of room to move around. The parc market was handy and had everything we needed, and we all enjoyed the Starbucks! I would recommend Center parcs to anyone wanting to get together with friends and family for a relaxing and funfilled break. I have already booked for next year x"
@Gemma D - May 2023, Woburn Forest
"Literally had the best time, we went for a girlie holiday group of 9 of us for my mums 60th and we couldn't fault it. Lodges were lovely and spotless. ALL staff were so friendly and polite and nothing felt like too much trouble. As a group with an age range we did so many different activities between us. But what is great is there is something for everyone and you can take and do as little or as much as you want to, it caters for everyone. All facilities were great. And swimming, well we had so much fun. We loved it so much, we are booking for the one for next year already."
@milly K - May 2023, Woburn Forest
"Exceptional trip. This was one the best things we have done as a family. The children had so much freedom on bikes and around the forest. Everything was spot on. The lodge was so clean and spacious just perfect for our family. In fact, on departure the children cried they didn't want to leave. I will definitely visit again. Thanks so much for the hospitality. The staff were fabulous very polite and always helpful"
