@Freedom62480689664 - April 2024, Longford Forest

We arrived on the Friday to a lovely cosy cabin. We loved every second of it. Even the dog had a ball!!!. We went kayaking, bowling swimming every morning with ease. Restaurants were great this time as we could just walk into some of them. Dine in service was super too. Staff very welcoming.
Weather was fantastic. Couldn't have got a better weekend.
10/10 from us. Thank you centre parcs.
