We have been to this particular site 2 years running now as a family of 6 . We particularly like the fact that we can take our dog, however it is only certain lodges you can stay in with the dog , and you do get charged extra for the dog. The site is very family friendly and there is... More

We have visited Whinfell many times. It was the first time we have had fab weather which was a bonus. We have yet again had a lovely time. We stayed in Seven Pines accommodation was clean and had everything we needed. We played short tennis, squash, snooker, visited the ranger lodge to see small mammals and the more energetic took...

Had a wonderful break, staying in an Executive 4 bed villa with infra red room. Accommodation was great but was a good 20 minute walk to centre (73 Meadowview). The village was immaculate and all the staff were very helpful the only downside was the prices in the restaurants and bars. The food was extremely over-priced for very basic menus,... More

Just returned from a 3 night weekend stay Center Parcs, Whinfell to celebrate a 60th birthday.10 years since our last visit and can't figure out why we left it so long! Grandparents, parents and children stayed at a lodge on Fell View. Excellent accommodation maintained to a good standard. Excellent facilities and activities which can be quite expensive but the...

We visited Center Parcs at the beginning of June saying in a woodland lodge for 4 nights. To say the least we were very impressed. Lots to do without spending a fortune! We had mixed weather so did a range of activities. My 9 month old daughter absolutely loved in swimming facilities. We've booked to return again in November a... More

We stayed in Heather Glade for a 3 night weekend break - 4 adults and 2 children aged 2 and 5. I made the same mistake as last time (Doh!) of booking too many activities for the kids. It really isn't necessary, the pool and the playpark are enough to keep them amused, but if you are tempted by the... More

Apart from a very silly policy of issuing only one key per room rather than per adult (how unwelcoming is that ?) it's hard to say how this could be improved (certainly as a venue for three generations on a special occasion). If Center Parcs stood for election I'd give them a chance to better organize the country than the... More

OK so the weather at 25 degrees C for a whole week was a bit of a freak, but for the second year we had a great time at Centre Parcs Whinfell Forest. From the easy check inn, through a 5 day schedule of activities for 3 kids it was great. The staff are excellent, and even if the kids... More
