This was our first Center Parcs experience as a family of four and we found the whole thing very enjoyable. Things We Loved 1. THE SWIMMING POOL We visited here on two out of our three days and also used it for the scuba diving experience. My two teenage boys loved the slides and the rapids, whilst my wife enjoyed... More

As always we have a great time, lots to do the tropical pool is excellent fun, clean which I am funny about and the cyclone ride great fun and you could spend all day in there even a Starbucks and cafe so even non swimmers can chill. Accommodation is good, clean with good facilities in a nice forest spot, loads... More

Our accomodation was very tied and not very clean. It was not up to the standard that we have experienced at other Center parks. Hope that we were unlucky and this is not the norm at Elveden. The Facilities and staff were excellent so we had a great time. The accomodation marked down the overall rating.

We stayed in an "exclusive" lodge, although some of the "exclusive" features were not much use to us, such as TVs in every room. We used the sauna to dry swimming costumes! One or two minor problems with the accommodation which were resolved quite quickly once pointed out. Good kitchen, dining and lounge area. Subtropical swimming paradise was great with... More

I've stayed at the Longleat Center Parcs and found that to be most superb. Sadly, Elveden falls way short of that standard. First the positives; The staff were extremely friendly throughout the venue and out accommodation was a very nice lodge, clean and well equipped, with very good wifi which connects easily. And generally the facilities of the park were... More

Fantastic for the family, lots to do and brilliantly designed to feel secluded while in the middle of a holiday village. The only thing is book activities and restaurants in advance and be prepared to pay captive audience rates. So pack the kids drinks, sarnies for the pool and save yourself a fortune! Perfect break for a young family.

After nearly 20 years of Center Parcs holidays, this was our first visit to Elveden forest. We stayed in an exclusive villa for 11 days, which came complete with hot tub, steam room, sauna, games room, and daily maid service. The villa was excellent, although the weather meant that bedroom windows were open at all times and even then it... More

I don't understand why people rave about centre parcs? If you like arranging a full rota for your holiday before you go and are happy to be ripped off (£30 for bowling lane, we normally pay £10 and that's in London!) then this is the place for you. Absolutely nothing is included in the £2,000 accommodation price other than the... More

I am genuinely sorry that a visit to Center Parcs does not meet with your expectations. Whilst I appreciate it is not always easy to plan ahead, we do recommend that were possible guests pre book both activities and restaurant in order to avoid any disappointment, particularly at peak times. The cost of your stay not only includes your accommodation... More
