Weekend Break with Another Couple and 2X toddlers

@tomq581 - September 2020, Longford Forest

"Booked a break in a woodland lodge for myself my wife and 2 yr old to share with another couple and their 1 yr old.

We were immediately impressed with the level of attention given by all members of staff in Centre Parcs to adapt to the Covid-19 crisis and maintaining excellent customer service.

The woodland lodge itself was clean, comfortable and practical with beautiful views from both ends of the building of the surrounding forest.

The fact that the park after the initial check in period is pedestrianized for walkers and bikers only is also reassuring and truly gives one a unique break from the world.

We were very impressed with the pool and its leisure facilities, I have never seen our 2yr old as excited in his whole life.

We were blessed with the weather for the final weekend in Sep and this made it possible to chill and relax outside on the lakeside beach and the coffee shop terrace with fantastic views of all activity going on. The staff in the coffee shop were so friendly to my son and even handed me a little espresso cup filled with mini marshmallows to give him as i was heading out with a takeaway coffee- he was delighted with himself.

We took a cycle of the 5Km loop around the park boundary and found this to be very enjoyable. It also is ideal for anyone who wishes to get a run in during their break- ask the friendly security staff at main gate for direction.

We ate in Hucks and really enjoyed it- particularly the staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Our toddler took part in two activities - mucky pups and under 3's soccer- these were very well run activities and were conducted in a covid-19 compliant manner.

We had a quick bite to eat in the Sports Plaza on the sat evening where a young male waiter was a complete legend who looked after us well and provided every distraction to ensure our two year old was kept occupied.

We ate in the Pancake House on the Sunday morning and thoroughly enjoyed this experience and food with a very helpful young female waitress who brought an extra cup of milk for the young lad (you can see a trend here )

Upon departure we had an issue where one of our party forgot a purse in the lodge and we went back to look for it- a member of staff (thanks Liz) was on site who was extremely helpful looking for the purse which was eventually found in bottom of suitcase in car :)

My only regret is that I did not get the names of all the staff who were so helpful to us throughout the weekend.

I would thoroughly recommend Centre Parc's to people of all ages- I didn't know what to expect and was taken a back at the level of attention to detail and the friendliness of the staff (this is the parks greatest strength- its people)

Hope to visit again in the near future.

Kind Regards

Thomas Quigley"
