We understand if you do not wish to visit Center Parcs, therefore if you are within 11 weeks (UK bookings) or six weeks (Ireland bookings) of your arrival date you may cancel for free with a full refund, or you can move your break to a date in the future with no amendment fee.

In all our villages, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is open. Our Aqua Sana Spa is open for spa sessions and treatments.

A full list of available indoor and outdoor activities will be available to view and book online no later than four weeks before arrival date, we’ll email to let you know when you can start booking. We advise to book in advance of your break for best choice and availability, however, our booking desks will be open on village during your stay.

You may arrive on village any time after 12 noon on arrival day and your accommodation will be available from 4pm. As usual we would kindly ask you to leave your accommodation by 10am and departure anytime up to midnight.

We now operate on a cashless basis for your ease and convenience. You can even add money to a gift card if your little-ones want some spending money for treats, so they can go cashless too.

Yes. We still believe it is important to avoid overcrowding but also, longer-term, we have been closely monitoring guest feedback from those that have stayed with us recently and they consistently tell us that fewer numbers in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise gives a much-improved experience – and it is the pre-booked swim slots that help us to manage guest numbers better. The pool is less crowded with shorter queues for slides and the changing experience is more relaxed.

We know that the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is a really important part of the Center Parcs experience and lots of guests have shared their disappointment regarding limited pool slots. Pre-bookable pool slots help us manage capacity and keep everyone safe and this is the reason we’re keeping them.

We are planning to increase the number of pool slots as we step out of restrictions, as long as we feel it is safe to do so. We will continue to review the situation on a weekly basis and guests should start to see additional swim slots become available in the coming weeks.

We need to protect our staff and guests and so we’re asking anyone with symptoms of coronavirus not to visit us. Please contact guestservices.uk@centerparcs.co.uk for help and advice.

Yes, all our lodges will be ventilated thoroughly once guests leave on departure day. We’re carrying out enhanced cleaning as standard, including additional cleaning of touchpoints such as handles, taps and TVs. Some small items are removed from accommodation to help reduce touch points and prevent the spread of the virus.

Every lodge will be checked by a supervisor before guests arrive to ensure we are always meeting the highest standards.

We’re also carrying out enhanced cleaning, in our central areas, paying particular attention to touchpoints and areas with high footfall, as well as toilets, changing rooms, buggy parks and bins.

You’ll be pleased to know that all our shops and restaurants are now open.

Our retail partner has been severely affected by the pandemic. As a result, they have decided to no longer operate in the fashion sector meaning that they have closed some of their stores on our villages. Aquatique, Just for Kids and The Store Room will remain open, but unfortunately, Spirit, Sportique and Time for Shade are now closed. We know these stores are firm favourites with our guests and we are working hard to look at new and exciting alternatives to add to our retail offering.

All refunds for breaks impacted by the closure period are now complete. If you are waiting to hear from us please send us an email using the link at the bottom of this page and we’ll take a look.

If you have cancelled using our website, it may take a few days for the refund to show in your account. If you have been unable to cancel on our website and are waiting to hear from us please send us an email using the link at the bottom of this page and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

You can cancel your activities, restaurant reservations, spa session or treatments and any extras on your Center Parcs account. View our activity cancellation guide for further details on how to do this.

In line with our commitment to protecting our forests and wildlife, we’ve made the decision not to bring back our firework displays at Center Parcs. Whilst fireworks are beautiful, they can cause stress and anxiety to wildlife, household pets and some of our guests, and can be damaging to the local environment.

We know that fireworks have traditionally been an important part of the festive experience here at Center Parcs, so this winter we’re lighting up the forest with a brand-new Enchanted Light Trail instead – and you can visit as often as you like!
