      Brand-new Electric Vehicle Charging Points

      Last updated 12 May 2022

      This summer guests will be able to recharge their batteries and their electric car too! Our EV charging points at Sherwood Forest will be available for guests arriving on a summer break. We have 75 charging points available to pre-book online and a small number of points available on a first-come, first-served basis.

      Guests will need to download the VendElectric App to charge their electric vehicle (payment is also made via the app). You will find our EV charging points on the first rows you come to in the guest car park, near Aqua Sana.

      Charging points can only be booked on Mondays for four nights and Fridays for three nights. The points will charge the vehicles overnight, although they can remain safely plugged in throughout the whole duration of your stay – checking the status of the charge on the app.

      Pre-book your electric vehicle charging point for peace of mind and a smooth arrival.

      Avian Influenza (bird flu)

      Last updated 13 April 2022

      Sadly, there have been cases of avian influenza (bird flu) recorded recently at Sherwood Forest and in the surrounding local area.

      The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) have said that avian influenza is primarily a disease of birds and the risk to human health is very low.

      Together we can help to protect our wildlife by taking the following steps:

      • Keeping to footpaths
      • Keeping dogs on leads
      • Not feeding wild waterfowl
      • Not picking up or touching dead or sick wild birds
      • Not touching wild bird feathers or surfaces contaminated with wild bird droppings (if you do, please wash your hands thoroughly)
      • Reporting dead wild waterfowl (swans, geese, or ducks) or other dead wild birds to a member of staff

      COVID-19 measures

      Last updated 24 February 2022

      Following the most recent announcement regarding the further relaxation of COVID-19 measures, Center Parcs will continue to follow government guidance.

      As always, our priority is to protect our guests and staff as much as possible, and we recommend that all guests due to visit take a lateral flow test before visiting our villages. Guests who test positive for COVID-19 should follow the government guidance for self-isolation.

      Guests due to visit prior to 18 April 22 are covered by our Book with Confidence guarantee and should complete this form if they find that they’re unable to visit due to isolation guidance. Guests may reschedule to a new date* or cancel with a full refund.

      *If the new date is more expensive guests will need to cover the additional costs, however, if the new date is lower in price we will of course refund the difference.

      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.

      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.

      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.
