This is the Sixth time we have been to Centre Parcs in Whinfell Forset. The last time was about 18 months ago and was a little tired and dated. What a difference this time......both subtle and obvious. We stayed in a New Woodland Style lodge which appeared to be recently refurbished. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. On arrival... More

This was our first visit to Centre parcs and I'm sure it won't be the last. We only decided last minute to come here as we hadn't done a passport for the baby, so we had to do a staycation and Centre Parcs was highly recommended. We booked a New style woodland lodge 4 bed, as that was the only... More

As annual visitors since it opened, it's safe to say we like it. In fact we love it. Plenty to do/see. Either fun filled or relaxing-suits all. Accommodation suits any size of group-big or small. Ready to book for next year-again. Keep up the good work!

First visit to Center Parcs for myself, my wife and our 3 month old. Initial impressions of the Whinfell Forest village are impressive, and the offset of manicured woodland residential areas against a retained feel of being close and amongst nature is very well realised. A theme which runs through the whole site very well. Lodging was perfectly situated minutes... More

A great stay. New style woodland lodge in Seven Pines, great location although we were next to a path that people used as a shortcut which was a bit of an invasion of privacy on occasion! Modern, clean and spacious accommodation. Ok so we weren't there to watch tv but be warned if you have little ones used to watching... More

After my husband walked out on my son & I 8yrs ago it was scary to think of going on holiday without him. I chose centerparcs as we had already been to one in Holland as a family & loved it. There is such a secure feeling at Whinfell, I never felt nervous about being out after dark. No cars... More

We stayed In Fell view in a four bedroom lodge. What an amazing place, the lodge was clean and well equipped and very spacious, far better than we were expecting quite honestly! The age range for the seven of us was 18 months to 50+ years and we all rate our experience as 10 out of 10!!! The parc itself... More

Excellent holiday. Great outdoor location. Good variety of activities for adults and children. Great swimming pool. Staff very polite and helpful. Everywhere very clean but some lodges do seem a bit old and outdated. No wifi in some of the lodges. Some aspects seem overpriced e.g the shop and coffee bars.
