Great weekend escape in executive apartment. Very good value and very impressed by the care and attention provided by the staff. Recommend booking activities well in advance, especially restaurants. We had a carry out a couple of nights and the Indian was superb!

Great house in the perfect location. Service from everyone in every place is brilliant. If a few of you, well worth chipping in for a Cabana near the pool. Left something and rang 2 days later. Alan from Lost Property was a legend and got it send back within 18 hours.

Cheap break during off peak. Stayed up in Moorview which I thought initially would be too far out, however nope it was close the sports plaza and the centre was a mere 5 minute walk, intact I got a take away one evening and managed to walk from the main car park to our lodge in 10 mins. Facilities mainly...

New year just felt like all Centre Parcs were interested in was money making and Whinfell isnt as nice as Sherwood Forest. First we contacted CP on facebook to ask if we didnt book anywhere for New Years Eve was there somewhere open to...

Currently staying and whilst it's hard to define, the staff (with notable exceptions) just don't have their heart in it as much as other centre parcs I have visited. That said, pool staff are excellent. The cleaning in our chalet was poor both when we arrived and during. Staff were bordering on rude and left floors unvacuumed, crumbs under toaster...

We've just returned from our annual January trip and we had a great time. The staff have always been great in all the years we've been going but this year they seemed particularly pleasant and helpful, especially Clare behind the bar on Sunday night! My only gripe is the price of drinks. Over £5 a pint means the bars are...

This is my third visit and we are staying in a 2 bed forest lodge. The accommodation is perfect for me, my wife, our 3&1 year olds. No matter what lodge you get, you are a pleasant walk from the village centre. With kids my age, I'd recommend a means of transporting them both, my 3 year old is lazy...
