One of the best holidays we have ever had!!!
@Kayleigh W- May 2023, Whinfell Forest
"It was our first time at Center Parcs and we had a fantastic holiday. The lodge was beautiful and very clean, the beds were very comfortable and I loved the spa bath. There was lots of wildlife which my children loved spotting. Being amongst the forest felt so refreshing and relaxing. There were plenty of action packed and crafty activities for the children and not too expensive, they loved the aerial adventure, swimming, tennis, roller skating, kayaking and electric boats.
The food was lovely and not too overpriced. The staff were lovely and very friendly in every section of the park. We had a fun holiday with some relaxation in between. We will definitely return and would highly recommend.
Amazing 50th birthday
@Rachel H- May 2023, Whinfell Forest
"Had a lovely weekend celebrating my 50th birthday with family.
This was our first stay at a park. We were all very excited about our trip and we were not disappointed. We had the most amazing time and we could not fault anything.
The cabin was immaculate and comfortable. All staff were very friendly and helpful. My daughter was taken I’ll at the pool, she was looked after by the life guard and was made to feel safe and well cared for. All activities were safe and fun. Thoroughly enjoyed the Ariel extreme experience and quad bikes.
My teenage daughter said it was the best holiday she had ever been on."
Awesome family holiday

Fun filled activities and time to relax also .

Second visit and a lifetime more to go!
@Sabrinarh91- May 2023, Sherwood Forest
"This is the second time my partner and I have stayed here, this time we was joined with our lovely little baby. We have made a pact that we will visit every year now and make it our new family tradition!
There is something for ALL ages and the only thing I would change is to make time go slower as the week just flew by.
I would like to mention that the staff (everywhere) are so welcoming and friendly and I think that can really make or break a holiday. There was one girl in particular who worked in the toy shop who was super lovely but sadly I didn’t catch her name (working afternoon 22/5/23)
Sadly I left a couple of things behind in our lodge but Guest Services were so wonderful and have been able to recover and post it back to us.
Thank you Sherwood CP for being the first and best holiday for a baby girl, we can’t wait to come back every year! xx"
Perfect holiday for kids
@Flyer282217- May 2023, Sherwood Forest
"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! Their swimming facilities and the huge number of water-based activities were thoroughly enjoyed by us. You don't have a dull moment in this perfect holiday destination!"
Perfect for all the family
@Maggie H- May 2023, Sherwood Forest
"There is so much to see & do at Center Parcs. Shops for gifts & supermarket for anything you’ve forgotten or need. Many different places to eat. Best for us was the swimming area which has so much included for all age groups & all included in the cost of your stay. You can do as much or as little as you like. We love the fact that it’s car free after people have arrived & on leaving. The grandchildren loved using their bikes, and parents used the bikes & carriage for the real little ones. Definitely recommend."
A fun family weekend away
@Sharon B- May 2023, Longleat Forest
"This was our first visit to Center Parcs and we absolutely loved it. A long weekend of fun and laughter. We truly underestimate how large the parc was, and in hindsight we should have requested a lodge in a more central location. We had an executive lodge; which was perfect located in the Fir area, 45 minute hilly walk to the car park and plaza. The land train was very welcomed to get us around. The pool was amazing, we hired a Cabana which I'd recommended as the pool area is extremely busy. Quad bikes, wall climbing, bowling and the double Kayakes were good value for money and so much fun. We can't wait to return."
Another amazing stay and super helpful staff
@christinebl208MZ- April 2023, Longleat Forest
"Location was great, we had 4 lodges between 16 family members for 4 days and everyone had a wonderful time. Lodges we’re spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The children had such great fun especially watching the squirrels, ducks and deer that wandered onto our patios. Various activities were undertaken by all and family meal get togethers in the evening. All in all we had a superb holiday and would highly recommend.
Only downside was the weather, but that’s just the luck of the draw and it didn’t stop us enjoying the facilities offered. The Spa was amazing!"
Loved our stay at Maple, Longleat, Wiltshire !!!
@Jan C- March 2023, Longleat Forest
"Super space in the lodge, good games room and sauna too...
We soon discovered the excellent new play parks for the toddler and baby !
The adults loved the Aqua Sana experience, and the Gardin de sport!
Also the mini shopping carts were a hit for the little ones in the plaza parcmarker and we all enjoyed the water fun in the subtropical swimming paradise!!
As you queue to get checked in you're thinking "Oh my ! The world and his wife are here !" But once you have unloaded at your lodge and have settled in, it feels like it's just you and your family on holiday in a vast forest - truly magical to see deer, squirrels and many birds on our walks ...
Loved, loved all of it - thank you !!!
We will be back !!"
The perfect family escape
@SuBra- May 2023, Elveden Forest
"Second visit with 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 Forrest and being visited by geese with goslings, deer 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 planing next year’s visit and will bring friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"
Fantastic fun filled family break
@Sally H- May 2023, Elveden Forest
"We all had a wonderful holiday, our ages range 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 of 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 Centerparcs to anyone wanting to get together with friends and family for a relaxing and funfilled break . I have already booked for next year x"
Annual family holiday!
@MAC T- May 2023, Elveden Forest
"It has now become an annual family holiday to Center Parcs!
We returned to Elveden this year as we found it as a family perfect for our needs with two grown up children, partners and grandchild.
We all enjoyed the facilities on offer and were able to explore surrounding area.
The Parc has under gone some improvements since 2022 and further improvements are underway now and will be opening later this year.
I can thoroughly recommend Elveden Center Parc."
@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."
Family weekend break- Woburn
@SarahAston - May 2023, Woburn Forest
"Just returned from a weekend stay with the family. 6 Adults, 7 month old grandson and the dog. Everything was perfect. The lodge was spotless and had everything you could possible need. Very modern with the perfect amount of space. We booked our activities online and everything went perfectly. We did archery, crazy golf, bowling, swimming and a sensory class for myself and grandson. We could not fault the weekend and have recommended it to friends and family and will be back."
@Marissa - May 2023, Woburn Forest
"Ive always wanted to go to Center Parcs - a holiday in the middle of the forest, surrounded by wildlife, and so many wonderful activities which range massively from each other, so there is always something to do for each family member. I was a little apprehensive prior to arriving as I am a single parent of a 6 year old and 1 year old, my eldest having ADHD. However, the staff at Center Parcs, no matter what their role was, was always so helpful and accommodating towards us, it made my daughters anxiety at ease, therefore my stress levels - level.
Every single day without fail, we would wake up to squirrels and birdsong at our patio doors, and both girls would stand with their 'The Pancake House' binoculars watching them.
We stayed in a standard lodge (Maple 817), it took us a few walks to find the easiest route to the village and the plaza but we did it, and was hitting 10,000 steps by 2pm!!
It was lovely not to worry about any cars, so my daughters could explore the woodland, climb trees etc without any danger.
We had a pedalo booked and soft tennis, both which the staff again couldn't be faulted. You can tell they are very well looked after and enjoy their jobs.
We ate in Cafe Rouge and the Pancake House, again staff couldn't do enough for you, food was great and about the same price you'd pay elsewhere, so definitely not extortionate in my opinion.
I think the highlight of the holiday was definitely swimming, my girls loved it. My youngest was only really interested in climbing the steps up and down and the wave pool, so I spent the majority of the time doing just that. But my eldest was off and on all the children's slides, the lazy river, wave pool, it was difficult getting her out even after 2hours swimming.
Its just a perfect holiday. 4 nights was definitely enough for the children, even though we didn't do half the activities they had on offer. So we will be back, Center Parcs. You did not disappoint!!"
