UK and Ireland holiday break locations
With five locations across the UK (and one to come in Ireland in 2019), each one of our villages is beautifully unique for your short break. Every village still has the key features that make them Center Parcs, including 400 acres of natural forest landscapes, a range of accommodation and activities (something for everyone, whatever the weather), a beach with watersports lake, our Aqua Sana Spa and the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, at a balmy 29.5 degrees all year round.
Nestled among a stunning landscape on the edge of the Lake District, a short break holiday at Whinfell Forest is perfect for nature lovers, as you might catch a glimpse of rare red squirrels and the uncommon orchid. Unique lodges, in a range of sizes, are set in the 400-acre forest, with lakes and streams befitting the picturesque breathtaking scenery.
Set in the heart of Nottinghamshire, take a UK short break holiday at Sherwood Forest for a perfect fusion of woodland and lakeside. It's the ideal setting for exploring and spending quality time with friends and family. Activities, indoors and outdoors, are spread around the 400 acres of woodland and village life comes together around the leafy terraces of the Village Square, with a range of places to relax, to eat, just watch the world go by, or discover our range of shops.
For the perfect family break in Suffolk, Elveden Forest - set in 400 acres of stunning woodland - is ideal. Great for all the family, the village offers everything from calm and creative activities to adrenaline-fuelled challenges, both indoors and outdoors. Our watersports lake and sandy beach offer activities including Cable Water Skiing, unique to Elveden Forest, while the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is home to our award-winning, gravity-defying water ride, Tropical Cyclone.
Just one hour from London and set in 365 acres of woodland, Woburn Forest is the most recent Center Parcs location. A short break at our Bedfordshire village gives you the chance to try our largest Subtropical Swimming Paradise, soak up magical views over the lake and undulating forest and stay in modern lodges, nestled deep within the forest.
Spectacular scenery and hundred-year-old Giant Redwoods greet you on your relaxing Wiltshire break at Longleat Forest. During your stay you can cycle, walk or catch the land train. Located in the valley is the lake, the perfect place for you and your family to spend some time relaxing on the beach or out on the water trying one of our many activities.
Our first village in Ireland is on its way. Longford Forest, just five kilometres from Ballymahon, will feature 470 self-catering lodges and more than 100 indoor and outdoor family activities, some adrenaline-fuelled, others relaxing – a perfect place for families to be together. Guests will be able to enjoy a range of restaurants and shops, our superb Aqua Sana Spa and our famous Subtropical Swimming Paradise, featuring an array of water rides and activities for all ages and a temperature of 29.5 degrees all year round. All nestled within 370 acres of beautiful woodland.
