We usually come twice a year to whinfell and this is our second visit of this year, I'm finding the hygiene of the lodges is getting worse at each visit. The lodge this time, 80 moorland view, has ripped wallpaper, hairs around bathroom & muck/dust not hoovered off the floor. I love everything else about Center parcs but I really...

We enjoyed the weekend especially because it did not rain. I would not like to be there at all if it were to rain all day, what would you do apart from the swimming pool? The swimming pool is one of the best that I have been in and it was lovely in the outside pool in the late afternoon...

Another family visit to the winter wonderland. Stayed in 2 lodges at Bilberry Wood. Great accommodation and sauna was an added bonus! What else can I say except thanks again to all staff for another wonderful 5 days. If you haven't been here you really need to get booking!

6th Annual Visit to CenterParcs! This time, just the two of us instead of the usual family stay! Cabin as always, perfectly situated, clean and comfortable with cosy log burning fire! As a couple instead of a family the experience and expectations were different! Still enjoyed "Winter Wonderland" and the reindeers - even as a "grown up! Aqua Sana an...
