We have just returned from Whinfell and had an amazing time. We planned our visit in advance so managed to book a range of activities and reserved tables where we wanted to eat. Well worth doing this to get what you want. There were six in our party and we felt it was an ideal break. It's certainly not a...

A last minute half term break for my three year old and me. As we were only 2 we could stay in one of the Lakeside Apartments, a marked change from the woodland lodges in the outskirts we normally pile into. The apartments are fantastic! Clean, spacious and well equipped we had everything we needed. A full sized fridge, hob,...

Overall we had a great few days. Going in February half term the weather's not going to be 20 degrees, but we packed for that!! The kids had a great time. They enjoyed the swimming, and the laser quest (I have 3 boys) the best. Junior quad biking was not great as it was over policed so my 8 year...

We stayed in the Lake side apartments and the room was spacious, clean and very comfortable, you couldn't tell that other people where staying there because it was so quiet. Whinfell is such a great place to be as it is clean, peaceful and the staff on site are so friendly. The tropical pools were very clean and the outdoor...

We went with our grandchildren to Center Parcs Penrith and had an amazing time. The lodge we stayed in was exceptionally clean and warm. The children enjoyed the swimming, crazy golf, badminton, aerial tree walking as well as wall climbing. The freedom they had on their bicycles made the stay even more enjoyable.

Stayed for a mid -week break back in January, we had a two bedroom villa on Meadow View. We had been warned before we arrived we may be disturbed by some building work, we could see it but it wasn’t a problem. And the vouchers came in handy when we visited Bella Italia for dinner which was very good. We...

Finally, after years of pestering by my sister, decided to give CP a try. Arrived on Monday 20th Feb for 5 days and due to leave tomorrow. Staying in Lakeside Apartments with my 14 year old son. As much as we have enjoyed a few days break though, I've just found CP to be over-rated and well over-priced. Having just...

Once all the cars were in the car park it was lovely being able to walk without dodging traffic. Although there were a lot of people there the property is large enough and there are enough activities for everyone to spread out.We were disappointed to discover that the cleaning staff had failed to clear the bin, fridge and bathroom sink...

Great place with fab lodges. We stayed in the Three Oaks area which is about 10 minute walk from the shops, restaurants and facilities. It's also a great place to relax in the Aqua Sana spa and also good for the kids to do activities like archery, bowling, roller skating etc. The only problem we had was that when trying...
