Just spent a family weekend here to celebrate a special birthday. Lodge well equipped, clean and well maintained. Beautiful forest surroundings. Lots of activities for all ages and tastes. We all left feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Always love centre parcs, it's brilliant with young children as there's so much to do. Only downside is the prices inside are rediculous! Was nearly £4 for a tube of pringles in the parc market.
