Excellent facilities and accommodation

A bit pricey

Introduction Having visited the Center Parcs complex at Whinfell Forest a couple of times over the last 12 months I found the place has a lot to offer especially for those of us with kids. The park itself is set in a large pine forest which includes a variety of both indoor and outdoor activities...

This is not our normal sort of holiday. We are more likely to pack a bikini and sunscreen and take a flight to some far flung part of the world before packing up the car and heading for the hills!! But, with a 2 month old and a terrible pregnancy, we thought it best to take a nice and easy...

RELAXING, MOD CONS, PLENTY TO DO

EXPENSIVE PRICES

As any female normally likes the idea of a romantic break away I decided that I wanted to go off to have a break in a log cabin and my fella suggested Center Parcs as he had been a great number of times before and really enjoyed it. How to Book:- www.centerparcs.co.uk or call 08705200300...

Activities Expensive, Pool Noisey at Peak Times

CENTER PARCS I had heard lots of things about Center Parcs and mostly it was everyone saying "its really expensive and you have to pay for everything"... so was always put off by it. So never really thought about it. I use lots of discount codes so when I found a great discount code for Center...

Lots to do in a beautiful setting.

Aimed more at families with young children.

I used to come to Center Parcs Whinfell Forest when I was much younger, and it used to be owned by Oasis, until Center Parcs bought it. In recent times I've been here twice with my boyfriend as it's cheap and there's lots to do. It is aimed more at families with children, but that didn't stop us...

Brilliantly concieved. Great accomodation

money money money money

There is probably no way I can give justice to this place in less that a thousand words. I'll give it a go. In one sentence: If you can afford it - go! Why? Because there is no where that quite reaches the standards this place hits. Not that I've ever seen. I've been 3 times in 5 years. Oasis is...

An expensive holiday when you add it all up.

I first heard about Center Parcs from my sister and brother-in-law, who took their children to the one at Penrith a couple of years ago. They went on a Monday to Friday break and said it really wasn't long enough and booked in for a week last year. This year when they booked, me and my son went...

I haven't been to Center Parcs in years and i'd only been to the Sherwood Forest one but this summer my family and I decided to give this one a go. it's set in the north of the lake district so as you can imagine it is a beautiful setting. The accommodation isn't exactly five star luxury but that...

The check in process is aweful on Fridays, it takes us 90 minutes to drive there, and 90mmins to get in at peak times, even off peak we've waited 40 minutes in the queue, on line registration does speed you through but doesn't cut the queues down. I've stopped here 3 times, the facilities and...

Very child-friendly

Could be miserable in the rain

This was our first break since having our first baby so it was fantastic to find somewhere so child-friendly. Our lodge was a 2-storey, 4 bed in excellent condition and beautifully equipped with the all-important washer/dryer, microwave and dishwasher. One of the 2 bathrooms also had an enormous...

Just come back from 2nd visit this year to Center Parcs Whinfell, I love the place and find it very relaxing, however this time around my husband and I found it very busy. We were there in March and then October and felt they were very different holidays, we do not have children so do usuallly like to have meals out and visit the sauna. Our accommodation was Lakeside apartments ground floor lake view, next time we will go for 1st floor lake or forest view, as we could not keep out curtains open and enjoy the lake as my husband and I were better viewing by passer-by's. As for the day pass to the gym don't get me started....

I visited Center Parcs Whinfell Forest in March and April 2010. My first break was a family holiday for a weeks' duration, and the second trip was a weekend with the girls. I had very different experiences at each break, so I will start with the weeks' stay in March. We booked 7 nights in a...
