“We’ve really enjoyed the great range of activities. Matilda has particularly enjoyed exploring the natural habitats and spotting the different animals every day. A great place to spend quality family time together.”

Three generations of the Smith family were taking a break when we caught up with them at Whinfell Forest. Children Oliver and Millie were keen to tell us about how much they enjoy the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, while their grandmother, Jane explained that she prefers to take things at a slower pace: "I like walking around the forest. I think it's relaxing to just take your time and enjoy nature. The birdsong this morning was particularly beautiful."

"We have been to Center Parcs lots of times. This is our sixth or seventh visit," Brian Shields explained when we met him with his wife Siobhan and children, Luke and Lucy. "We’re just on our way to your favourite family activity – Aerial Tree Trekking. We also enjoy getting out on our bike and cycling around the forest together."
