The swimming areas were amazing and all staff were incredibly friendly! Eating out is pricey (not Katie) but our lodge was well equipped to make a good few meals. So many people rave about centerparcs and I've always been sceptical but I have to say we're impressed!

Stayed here with my family and friends for the Winter Wonderland after getting a good deal on the price. My little one loved it....especially the swimming pool which kept her entertained for most of the day. The room we had was a little far away from the main activity area, so look out for this if your not up for... More

We have been here many times before. Its magical and amazing. We only go during off season so its cheap and not busy. The only negative which is always over 10 visits disappointed is eating out. Its always overpriced and terrible. Service is shocking and nothing ever looks and tastes as advertised. The center staff are always helpful and apologetic... More

This was our fourth visit . Our four night break was in July. We had a three bedroom comfort plus lodge which was spacious as we shared with my daughter and family children were ages 8 and 4. They loved the swimming pool in the mornings. We were lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the outside pool.... More

This is 3rd visit to whinfell forest, maybe our last. It's overpriced and starting to look a bit tired . It sort of feels like it runs itself, and your a captive audience so we'll charge you as much as possible. I think the party's over for Centerparcs.

We do currently have works on going to improve both the Boathouse and Children’s Pool areas. In addition we are continuing with our refurbishment programme for... More

I was so pleased to read that you found our Village to be “perfect” and that all of your party continue to enjoy their visits. Although you live so close, I am sure you will agree that once on the Village you feel a whole world away from home. See you all soon Sharon Press Guest Services Executive More
