We have stayed here many times over the years with family. This time we went just my husband and I. We stayed in the lakeside apartments which was a studio apartment which catered for all of our needs. It included maid service, dish washer and hydro bath. What more could you ask for. We went out for a couple of... More

We stayed at Whinfell Forest C.P. for the very first time this last weekend with all our family in one of the woodland lodges. We were really excited it was to be our first and hopefully one of many family holidays. We arrived at 3.30 on our first day and after a slight delay getting through the booking in system... More

Had a disappointing stay this time as the villa was very poor cleanliness and maintenance was poor! Staff service was great as usual but the restaurant booking system needs to be reviewed to leave space for walk ins!!!

Yet again had a wonderful weekend at Centre Parcs. As on previous visits we chose a Woodland Lodge . We were not dissapointed. Only negative would be that the corners of the rooms could have been a bit cleaner. The kids room had pile of debris sitting in the corner behind a foot stool. Apart from that the Lodge and... More

We walked into our lodge, which was very easy to find, to find it completely spotless. The lodge was very cosy with its open fire and the beds were very comfortable. The bird feeders outside the patio doors are a nice touch as they encourage a bit of wildlife. The play areas were brilliant loads for kids of any ages... More

My family and I have been coming here for about 12 years now, not once have we been disappointed ! There is so much to do and is great fun for the whole family ! The accommodation is great with a real homely touch. And required everything that we needed. The subtropical swimming paradise is very hygienic and with 2... More

We ( my 15 year old daughter and I ) decided to go Friday to Friday this year which meant we could relax and not try to cram too many activities in. This was our 10th visit. As usual the lakeside apartment was clean and comfortable. We could not figure out how to switch on the Jacuzzi bath and had... More

Location wise, Whinfell is great. But our accommodation was very disappointing. Cleanliness was pretty bad- dust everywhere, huge cobwebs all over the walls and dead bugs that we cleared up. Maintenance wasn't great in our 'executive' lodge (which we knew was old style but my God, that doesn't excuse the state of it). Since we were only there 4 days... More

First visit in years - so clean, staff very helpful, beautiful forest setting with red squirrels and great free swimming facilities with loads of lifeguards for peace of mind with older children using flumes etc in Subtropical Paradise. Food good though fairly pricey (as expected). Activities (pre-booked) very well organised and thoroughly enjoyable - will definitely be back - 5... More
