Great break in the forest!

@shannoncollyer_17 - May 2021, Woburn Forest

I usually go to Elveden but me and my partner decided to go to Woburn as it is not far from us. We had a two bed executive lodge in Maple number 956 that had en suites, hydro bath, wine cooler etc. It had a very nice lounge, comfy sofas and a great size tv. It has the hdmi connections to enable you to add a firestick etc or a hdmi cable into the laptop which I did, we watched the football and netflix in the evenings and the WiFi was great!!

Restaurants were open for outside dining only, first come first serve. No problem getting a table. All the activities we wanted to do were available - we did badminton, tennis outdoors and table tennis. It was a shame we weren’t able to play pool or go in the games bit but that was down to government guidelines. It is a nice complex all very nice and new looking. It is smaller than Elveden in my opinion but it’s great if you don’t want to adventure out far.

I went to the aqua sana for a foot treatment which was gel for the toes. Very nice treatment area etc very clean tidy and staff had the full ppe required. I felt at ease and the lady did a good job. The spa area looks massive, unfortunately it was closed (government guidelines).

We hired bikes too which was quick and easy. It is hilly in some parts depends where you are staying. The lodge was clean. We had a great time, a week chilling in the forest away from work!

Felt at ease with COVID guidelines etc social distancing etc mask wearing.

Whinfell Centre Parcs

"Returned from a family weekend, stayed in exclusive lodge, ( 84 Bilberry wood ) with hot tub and sauna, absolutely lovely, could not fault the lodge , very spacious, immaculate, large bedrooms all had en-suite, lovely kitchen with all necessary appliances, easy walking distance to centre, lovely little shopping area, all staff were very friendly and helpful, booked a few activities before arriving, really good fun 😄, this was our first visit, but certainly will not be our last, I would definitely recommend 👍🏼😊."

Fantastic Covid Safe Getaway

@jessicaprota - May 2021, Woburn Forest

"I have been visiting Longleat Center Parcs every year for the past 25 years and have never once had a bad experience, rain or shine! It has been the place of many happy childhood memories and holds a very special place in my heart. I was a bit apprehensive visiting while the pool was closed (as the pool has always been a huge part of our stay) but I need not have worried, we still had a wonderful holiday and had the opportunity to do lots of activities we haven't done before.

The covid measures in place were excellent and we felt very safe. The pancake house, Foresters and Sports Cafe were open for outdoor dining and most of the other restaurants offered delivery to the lodge. We stayed in the Fir area as we usually do and saw lots of deer, ducks, squirrels and even a few birds of prey this time.

We had treatments at the spa - thank you to Shantale and Charlotte who were excellent.

We are going back in September and cannot wait!"

A fantastic holiday

Fun & Relaxing week in Elveden 

@scole96 - April 2021, Elveden Forest

"Just come back from a lovely relaxing & fun five days at Center Parcs Elveden
The particular CP is our local and a firm favourite of ours
We stayed on the 3rd week of opening after the last lockdown and to be honest apart from the Water park being closed we had a great stay
We booked target & Field archery 🏹 and had such a great time could not fault the activities at all
The staff where warm and friendly as well having safety as an important factors
The park is adhering fully to the Covid measure
We also booked the pool tables and adventure golf which where fun
The pedalos where good fun also
We had lunch at cafe rough on the terrace but it was so cold we could not enjoy our lunch so patio heaters might be worth it for keeping your diners warm
We had a takeaway from Hucks and it’s so incredible we had it twice
I love the fact that they fully cater for Coeliacs & Vegans
Very very impressed and the quality of the food was spot on, fantastic value and massive portions
Park Mart is spot on too as they also have a really decent selection of GF foods
All in all we had a great four days and we have since booked to try out Woburn in November
However Elveden will always be our No1
Thank you massively to the whole team keep up the great work"

Absolutely Fantastic Yet Again! 

@emilymP9891PR - April 2021, Sherwood Forest

"Obviously with the covid situation, we were unable to use the swimming pool and have meals in the restaurants... BUT it did not affect our visit at all.
The activities for the children were correctly carried out and they loved each one (pottery painting, archery, crazy science) and us adults also took part in family putting and the electric boat which were great too.
The dogs loved the walks and we were able to tie them outside whilst we had barbecues too which was great as they did not have to stay cooped up inside the lodge.
The lodge itself was very clean and just as we'd expect from Center Parcs.
Already booked our visit next year!"

Couple's Break @ Center Parcs

@Shazshaz - September 2020, Longford Forest

"Me and my boyfriend went to Center Parcs in place of our Spain holiday and it did not disappoint!! Stayed for 5 days and would highly recommend it to anyone. Although it was more kid orientated, you can still have a brilliant trip for couples of older group of adults too. But, if you don't like kids at all, its not for you...

Overall would 100% recommend to everyone especially families, the next time I would go with a group of people to make our own craic in the evening rather than just a couple."

Exceptional Holiday

Tony C - September 2020, Longford Forest

"We took a 4 night break in Center Parcs 6 adults and 2 toddlers. From the time of booking the communications were excellent. Constant updates about Covid & the activities available. Check in on the monday was extremely efficient a little wait but not too bad and once we got to the Lodge - wow. We had a 4 bedroomed each with ensuite, an excellently equipped kitchen and ding/sitting room and a games room with a monstrous TV and a pool table. We hired Bikes and used a number of the facilities. We ate in the Italian and The Indian restaurants on site and food was extremely good. The sub tropical pool area was fantastic with pool and slides to suit all ages ensured we were all kept entertained. The cleanliness throughout the whole site was superb, and you felt safe. Our stay was extremely enjoyable and a big part of were the staff. They are obviously very well trained and enjoy what they do. Nothing was a problem and they were all ever so helpful. The car free environment is a fantastic feature. We hired bikes for 2 toddlers and we were happy to let them pedal away, obviously supervised, but without the fear of a car suddenly appearing."

Family weekend

Lisa W - September 2020, Longford Forest

"Just back from Center Parcs where we spent a great weekend. The weather was great, the lodge was perfect, as we arrived 4 Deer ran across the front of the car so set us up with high expectations lol!
We weren’t disappointed.
We have children aged 3 to 14 and there was something for them all. They have already planned their activities for the next time we visit!
We all felt Covid safe from the pool to the shops to the restaurants!
We can’t wait to go back!"
