We've stayed here several times over the years but never in Severn Pines. Looking at the map it's at the bottom of the park near the car park. What a great location! A 3 minute cycle to the park centre (up the hill) or a 2 minute cycle to the car park. The pub is about 4 minutes whilst the sports centre about 6 minutes by cycle. Clean, friendly, safe and secure. A family with small children will find this venue to be first class as there's plenty to entertain. My daughter is 7 and my son 2, both lived the pool and we're free to stroll around the entire park with only a very, very small chance of encountering any vehicles other than cycles. Some people, often people who have never visited a centerparcs, state that it's very expensive but it's as expensive as you want to make it! Shopping is best done at either Morrisons or Sainsburys in Penrith using the on site market for minor odds and ends. The restaurants are fairly average prices and the toy shop openly states that they attempt to sell at high street prices and if found to be overpriced will refund the difference. The activities are all priced in my opinion about 10% over non centerparcs attractions. My wife, mother in law and daughter all did the go ape tree trekking which cost £22 for adults and £18 for children which is fairly average. Will be definitely looking to visit again soon.
