We had a great time with great weather. Wouldn't recommend the 'comfort' lodges, which is all that were available when we booked (only a few weeks before going), as they are very basic. Also the food and drink is very expensive for what it is. If the children didn't like it so much I doubt that I would go back.

This was our first visit to Center Parcs. We were a party of 5 - 2 adults, 1 OAP, a teenager and a 10 year old. We stayed for 4 nights in a new style woodland lodge, which was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. Having a bathroom with a shower and an extra shower room was really convenient. We took...

Spent Mon-Fri at Whinfell Forest with my two adult daughters and grand-daughter and we had a brilliant time. There are so many activities - indoor and outdoor - that we were busy all the time and each out of our 'comfort zone' at some point. Between us we did bowling, badminton, golfing, swimming, biking, riding, aerial adventures, tennis, quad-biking. Everything... More

Again, my experiment is proven - sleep is better quality at Center Parcs perhaps due to the excellent quality beds and the forest conditions - either way, I'm a fan. This time, we stayed in a 3 bedroom lodge near to the Sports Plaza (Moorland View) which was a great location and provided a little exercise going to and from... More

We love this place - very family friendly and our kids adore it! The only reason for a 4 not 5 is the constant sell sell sell. You turn the tv on and get ads to spend, you walk down a lovely woodland path and see an advert for a show - It's just too much and unnecessary. We will... More

Absolutely brilliant family holiday. Although slightly expensive you get what you pay for. Loads of activities for all ages including adults. Cant say enough about the pool could spend a full day with family here at no expense apart from food. Lodges are fantastic cant believe people complain about little things as carpet stains. No matter where you are always... More

Very clean everywhere and relaxing , the only small negative was the early closure of supermarket & restaurants, if I was here just with my other half we'd... More

This was our first visit to Center Parcs, so didn't really know what to expect, we had heard so much about it, so we thought we would go. Firstly we had to que for 30 mins to get in to the check-in bay. The lodge was OK, we paid for New Style Woodland Accomodation, I thought it would be better... More

Apartments were excellent,extremely clean, well equipped (microwave,oven,dishwasher,TV), we had a balcony overlooking the lake. It was so quiet and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break We hired bikes which allows you to explore, pathways are all excellent... More

What a wonderful long weekend away from the world and back to family values, doing things together, talking , eating enjoying. What a great way to bring the extended family together as one. Our annual visit to Whinfell forest is already organised for next year and looking for dates for 2016. Hope you will be able to leave your world... More
