Top tips for your stay

  • On your day of arrival, you can start your adventure in the forest from 10am and have access to your accommodation at 4pm
  • On your final day at Center Parcs don’t rush to get back to reality, you will need to leave your accommodation by 10am, though guests are welcome to stay on village until midnight
  • The weather doesn’t stop family adventures at Center Parcs. Know what to pack for your break and check the weather forecast ahead to know if you need your raincoats and wellies or sandals and shorts
  • Don’t forget to check-in your guests online before your break and to have your booking reference ready on arrival, so you can spend more time exploring the forest
  • Don’t worry about doing a food shop before you arrive on village, head to the ParcMarket for your everyday essentials and if you spend more than £40 we’ll deliver your shopping to your accommodation for free
  • With 400 acres of the forest to explore, it can be difficult to get your bearings, so why not book onto our Wildlife Walk activity to help you get to grips with the village quicker and learn about the friendly animals you can see during your stay?

For something extra...

Why not spend a little more for some of these things…

  • Before you arrive why not purchase a breakfast pack to be in your lodge, so you can cook your loved ones a delicious hearty first meal of the day?
  • Not got enough room in your suitcase? Don’t worry, why not save some valuable space and hire your pool towel at the Subtropical Swimming Paradise for £2.
  • Want a cosy night in, in front of the fire and the TV, but don’t want to cook? Choose from a range of takeaways to order online, from Indian to Mexican.

Once you’ve booked your break at Center Parcs you can start to pre-book activities, make restaurant reservations and order essentials to your lodge online 8 weeks before your arrival date, allowing you to really make the most of your short break in the forest and ensure that you don't miss out.
