Forest safety

7 August 2020

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
  • Should you discover a fire no matter how small, please contact the village emergency number or call 999
  • Due to our forest environment we may need to withdraw the use of BBQ’s in extreme hot weather

We do have regular fire checks in place but please be vigilant and help us to maintain a safe environment in the forest.

DVD players

9 January 2019

As part of our accommodation upgrade, we are enabling you to connect your own device to the TV via Bluetooth, HDMI or USB. Connection points are located adjacent to the TV and directions for use can be found in the Guest Directory which is available in every lodge.

As technology advances, the requirement for DVD players is declining and we have therefore removed these from some of our upgraded lodges. This, in turn, provides a shelf for you to position your own device affording more protection.

However, if you would like a DVD player please contact Guest services on 01842 894452 to arrange provision.

Lake closures on our villages

2 September 2019

As we operate a number of submersible activities on the lakes at our villages, we test our lake water for quality on a regular basis. Due to natural organisms, we occasionally receive a reading that means we have to close our lake whilst we treat the issue and gain a normal reading again. Should this happen we will ensure that guest disruption is kept to a minimum and that we bring activities back online as soon as we possibly can.

Minimising traffic on the village 

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.
