We just got home from center parcs whinfell forest, I went with my partner and our 8 year old daughter. We loved it, our accommodation was immaculate, there was so much to do, the restaurants were excellent, we ate at bella Italia, hucks and the lakeside inn and the food in each place was excellent value for money. All the... More

Back from a wonderful 3 night stay at Whinfell Forest. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised! We stayed in a new woodland 3 bedroom (Fell View) which was lovely - clean and comfortable. It was in a great position, just 10-15 minutes from the centre but not too close. The beds were extremely comfortable. Our 2 teenagers had... More

This was our second visit to Centre Parcs, the last time being 3 years ago when our children were age 3 & age 6. We had all loved it then and were not disappointed this time! We stayed at no.49 Beechwood which was a lovely modern 2-bedroom lodge and a perfect distance to either walk or cycle to all the... More

We are just home from a 7 night stay at Whinfell Forest. We stayed in a new style executive lodge which was nicely decorated and very clean. (On our last visit 10 years ago our stay was spoiled by a basic and unclean lodge). Very different experience this time around. Our lodge had 3 en suites bedrooms and a sauna.... More

First class situation in a forest setting, all well kept without being over manicured. Lodge was delightful, only let down by old fashioned plastic shower liable to burn/freeze user if other family members ran water elsewhere, and lack of wi-fi - really not acceptable nowadays. Activities were great, especially the swimming pool which had lots of different aspects. Some activities... More

If, like me, you have never been to a Centre Parcs - just go, just do it. We took 10 adults, 18 - 58 from our extended family for a 'get to know you better weekend' and what a hoot it was. High ropes, canoeing, cycling, swimming, table tennis, eating, drinking, laughing and joking all compulsory. The Lodges were superb... More

What a great place to stay! I will use words like comfy, cost, relaxing and a place to charge your batteries! Great cabins, excellent facilities and you can leave your car in the car park. I couldn't find a fault and if you don't enjoy yourself, you're missing out!

This is by far my favourite UK Center Parcs and quite possible my overall favourite! I love the layout of this village and all of the facilities are kept to a really high standard. I've lost count of how many times I have stayed here and the service is always excellent. I stayed here a couple of years ago for... More

This was our 4th visit to whinfell forest and I have to say we were slightly disappointed in the experience this time round. The lodge felt dated (tape deck on the stereo and a big fat CRT telly) with maintenance issues which when reported were not fixed. The sofas were the most uncomfortable slippery things to sit on- I know... More

Short and sweet..well I'll try. Great place! Our son aged 7 went round the Canyon Ride (rapids) continuously. Must have gone into x3 figures over the week. Staff are ALL so friendly. Facilities great. Very clean. Love the ducks at the patio door. Great adventure park for the kids. Take your own bikes if you can. Hucks food, cocktails, drinks... More
