The accomodation at this site was excellent. The activities are different and thoroughly planned and the setting is idyllic. We had a totally relaxing and fun break. The only niggles were the prices of the supermarkets, restaurants and gift shops. Surely if the prices were more reasonable, people would buy more? The site could also benefit from a few more...

We travelled from the London area upto Winfell Forest and after a horrendous journey, this was a fantastic place to unwind and destress. Having checked in on line, the drive through check was very quick an easy and it great not having to get out of your car. Being from the London area, the prices were very much in line... More

Just arrived back from Whinfell Forest. Arrived Friday afternoon straight into the chalet Very quick check in. When we got to the chalet we were very disappointed with the very dated décor. Everything was gruppy and marks all over the carpets. But we had a swim and a meal and went to bed, getting up next morning to be greeted... More

I was very sorry to read of the issues you experienced with mice in your accommodation. Our Grounds Services team do have procedures in place to keep an occurrence such as you experienced to a minimum. However, with our Village being situated in a forest environment there will be occasions when wildlife, including mice, will find their way into the... More

Centreparcs has been a staple holiday of ours for a few years. If you go abroad you have to get up at an ungodly hour, drive to an airport, spend three hours going through endless security checks, get on your plane which is then delayed. Eventually you land at your destination airport, wait around for your luggage to be thrown... More

Facilities are amazing, the opportunity to do a wide range of activities is second to none. Most of the activities are reasonably priced, all things considered. It's very functional, clean and tidy, and in the main staff are excellent. It has woodland charm, freedom for children and having to park the car away from the lodges is awesome. Real escapism,...

Just returned from a four day break at Center Parcs with my three kids, two grandchildren and two 'significant others' and I have nothing but praise for the fabulous time we all had. There really is something for everyone and everything you could possibly require all on hand. In fact, it feels as if you are returning to the real... More

Just back home after a 7 night stay at Whinfell Forest. My husband, two daughters and their partners and our 3 year old grandson stayed in a 4 bed 2 storey woodland lodge. This was ideal for our family; it was comfortable and like all the available properties, in a lovely setting. Our 3 year old grandson loved the daily... More

A brilliant time, and well looked after too. From aged 70 to 6 everyone enjoyed their time at Whinfell. Very clean, well laid out accommodation. Excellent staff service throughout, especially on childrens activities.

We were here for a week. I must say pretty expensive accommodation. We had a 3 bed with a sauna. Check in was fast and easy-- I did this online so only had to collect the wrist bands once we got there. Wifi was the only minus at our executive style lodge as we had a problem initially with this.... More
