Excellent time had by our family and children, plenty to do and all activities enjoyed by all from wall climbing, quad bikes, roller skatting, cycling and swimming. Great food and company. Lovely escape for a week would go back.

We got a great deal on a 4 bedroom lodge in mid January as an antidote to the post Christmas blues. We didn't really do much more than mooch around the amazing tropical swimming paradise for hours on end every day, our 2 & 3 year old girls were trashed after that! The lodge was good, but I did feel... More

Went for a weekend with friends in a lodge with a jacuzzi and sauna. Was a lovely relaxing time, regardless of the rain all weekend. The spa was a prefect end to the weekend, Gemma G in the Spa provided the best facial ever. Thank you for a wonderful time.

This was our 6th trip to CP Whinfell, and there is a reason for that. We have been told to go to Sherwood by other people who have been to both, but we love this one so much, there is just no reason to go to another one! We went Mon-Fri as we have done before. We stayed in Foresters... More

This was the first time I've been here but my mother and her partner often take my 2 children and they love it so I thought id join them and see what all the fuss was about and I must say I certainly wasn't disappointed we had an amazing time. The lodge was beautiful set in a little Cul-de-sac and... More

We've ben going to this site since it first opened. This site was not built by Center Parcs, it was, I think, Whitbreads' alternative, but now part of the Center Parcs group it's influence on their other Parcs is clear. For instance the food outlets have always been high street favourites and not CP's own, this is far better. This... More

We stayed at 86 Heather Glade, which is one of the three bed/two storey lodges with a sauna and hydro bath. The accommodation was great and well worth the money. The daily maid service was great too. The lodge was two minutes walk to the village centre and swimming so very handy location. We had a bit of an issue... More

The lodge had 4 bedrooms all en suite and was well appointed. The lodge was clean and tidy and well thought out. The lodge was very warm although we had a problem with noise from heating system but this was sorted immediately we reported it. There was a bit of noise disturbance one night in a nearby lodge which someone... More
