      Woburn Forest will close for one day – Monday 19 September 2022 to mark the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

      Last updated 13 September 2022

      Following the announcement of the date of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, we have made the decision to close all our UK villages on Monday 19 September as a mark of respect and to allow as many of our colleagues as possible to be part of this historic moment.

      Guests who were due to arrive at Woburn Forest on Monday 19 September should not travel on this day, though we will reopen on Tuesday 20 September and be ready to welcome our guests then. 

      We hope our guests will understand our decision to support our Queen on her final journey.

      All guests impacted by the closure will receive an email today explaining the options available. The information below will hopefully help our guests with burning questions:

      Please do not travel as all our UK villages, including Woburn Forest, will be closed on Monday 19 September.  We’ll reopen to welcome guests on Tuesday 20 September for guests to enjoy three nights with us (Tuesday to Friday).

      No, Woburn Forest will close at 10am on Monday 19 September and we’re asking all guests to depart by this time. 

       

      I have activities booked on Monday 19 September, how do I cancel these?

      Subtropical Swimming Paradise - no need to book from 11 July

      Last updated 23 June 2022

      You may remember that as part of COVID-19 restrictions we introduced bookable swim sessions to visit the Subtropical Swimming Paradise.  As we have now moved away from such restrictions, we have made the decision to remove bookable swim sessions from 11 July 2022 which means that guests will no longer be required to book to visit the pool from this date.

      We know that the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is a popular feature of a Center Parcs break and we will still need to manage the number of guests visiting at any one time.  The number of guests visiting the pool will be closely monitored and naturally some times of the day/evening will be busier than others, Saturday and Tuesday mornings are typically busy times. 

      It may be necessary when our pools have reached capacity for us to control guest entry.  The good news is that guests will have the freedom to visit the pool throughout their break and we hope they’ll welcome the spontaneity.  

      We will be closely monitoring guest views, feedback and capacity levels in the coming weeks and carefully considering the future for entry to our pools.

      We hope the questions below will help our guests:

       

      What if I’m visiting before Monday 11 July?

      If you have a break booked before Monday 11 July you will still need to pre-book your session to visit the Subtropical Swimming Paradise.

       

      Do I need to cancel my swim session?

      No, we’ll automatically cancel all swim bookings from 11 July.

      Guests will still see their booking in their itinerary until 11 July.

       

      My booking is still showing in my itinerary – what does this mean?

      All Subtropical Swimming Paradise bookings will be cancelled from 11 July.

      Bookings will be removed from all guest itineraries on 11 July and not before. Prior to this date guests will still see their pool session.

       

      How often can I visit the Subtropical Swimming Paradise?

      You can visit the pool 7 days a week, at any time between 10am-9pm and stay for as long as you like. 

      From time to time, we may have to restrict entry for your safety if we reach capacity during busier times.

       

      When are the busy times in the pool?

      The number of guests visiting the pool will be closely monitored and naturally some times of the day/evening will be busier than others, Saturday and Tuesday mornings are typically busy times. 

       

      Can we visit at different times and days to the rest of our group?

      Yes, you can visit separately if you prefer.

       

      What’s the likelihood of the Subtropical Swimming Paradise reaching capacity?

      From time to time, we may have to restrict entry for your safety if we reach capacity during busier times.

       

      I’ve booked towels with my swim session, will I still get these?

      Yes, please visit the pool desk inside the Subtropical Swimming Paradise to collect your towels

       

      Are bookable swimming sessions gone for good?

      We are reviewing how guests access our pool and how we control this in the future.  For now we’re taking them away and we’ll continue to review guest feedback.

       

      Are you still controlling the number of guests in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise?

      Yes, we electronically monitor the number of guests in the pool at any one time.  If we reach capacity we will ask guests to come back at another less busy time.

      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.

      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.
