      Aqua Sana onto a winner

      19 August 2021

      We’re absolutely delighted to share the news that for the fourth year running, Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest has been named ‘Best Day Spa’ at the 2021 Good Spa Awards. 

      Kay Pennington - Group Spa Manager said “I can’t tell you how proud I am of the team, they thoroughly deserve this award. Since we launched our Forest Spa concept in 2017 this is the 4th time Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest has been recognised by the Good Spa Guide.

      We are very fortunate to have a fantastic product in a beautiful location within the forest, however I truly believe that it is down to the individual team members at Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest who are committed and driven to drive excellent service. They are a very passionate and motivated team and have supported each other during the pandemic to come back stronger than ever.

      To win the Best Day Spa (sponsored by Dale Sauna) is the best accolade and a true credit to every member of the team.” 

      After what has been an incredibly tough year for the spa and beauty industry, this award means the world to us.

      Two small dogs on leads

      Dog owners' advice

      In recent years, an unexplained dog illness known as 'seasonal canine illness' has been found in an increasing number of forest areas around the UK, particularly in late summer and early autumn. The illness is currently believed to be triggered by a naturally occurring cause and has affected a number of dogs in areas across the country, including those local to some of our villages, including Sherwood Forest. This issue is still under investigation and there is no comprehensive explanation as to why it has occurred. We are therefore pre-warning all guests who plan to bring a dog to Center Parcs.

      Cases of Alabama Rot have also been reported around the country in 2017. This is another unexplained disease affecting dogs. None of our Center Parcs villages have been identified as locations with cases of Alabama Rot, but in the interest of vigilance, we recommend dog owners familiarise themselves with the symptoms.

      If you are bringing a dog to one of our villages and are concerned, please call our Contact Centre team on 03448 266 266.

      *available when break booked is 26 weeks or fewer away.
