During extreme dry weather spells we take advice from the Met Office, please see below some basic fire safety points:
Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking locations on village and on the patio/ balcony of accommodation
The use of wood from the forest is strictly prohibited for use on the fire in accommodation (please only use logs purchased from ParcMarket)
The making of fires of any sort is strictly prohibited
We know that our focus on providing a safe environment with minimal traffic is something you really value. That’s why we need your help to reduce the traffic on our villages to protect what you love about Center Parcs: a place where little ones can run free and explore, and parents can feel at ease.
