“Absolutely amazing as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We all had a great time, the staff were helpful as always, everywhere was clean and tidy. The kids had a great time and so did we! Loved the subtropical swimming paradise. My daughter really enjoyed tree trekking, next year she is going to attempt the aerial adventure ! Great for the children to cycle around all week knowing they were safe with no cars. See you again next year!

First off, the staff at Center Parcs were extremely friendly and accommodating; clearly given high quality training.
Our accommodation at Pine was a little dated, but it was clean enough and it was about a 10 minute walk to the Plaza. It also said in the welcome pack that beds would be pre-made, however ours weren't. Although that was not a big deal to us, really.
There is plenty to do there, but boy is it really expensive. Some things certainly warranted the expense, such as the tree-top adventure costing ~£30pp, a lot of staff are required here and I imagine insurance is high. £30, however, for two people bowling is extremely extortionate. Pretty much every activity was agonisingly expensive and prices appeared to fluctuate. For example, we played snooker one day and it cost £5 for the hour and a couple of days later it cost £8.
We ate at a majority of the food outlets there, and the chains 'Strada' and 'Cafe Rouge' provided better value; that was a surprise. The pancake house was expensive and a touch disappointing.
The real killer was something out of Center Parc's control: children. Dear God, the children! Every restaurant, every activity, every 10 meter long path there was some screaming child (the screams these things are capable of are extraordinary- deafening). The good thing was that it did reaffirm our desires to never, ever have children. Please, spare me the "if you had kids you'd understand" nonsense, this is something parents say when they've completely given up hope and use it as an excuse so their wonderful little Henry can be a little c***.
I obviously made the rookie mistake of believing the tabloids, as I was under the impression parents were fined a bajillion pounds for taking their little Harriet out of school. Certainly I take the blame for my own naivety, here.
Really, that is why Center Parcs scores 3/5 for me. I feel bad as this isn't Center Parcs fault at all, but it really made the whole break pretty much miserable. We went away to relax and we simply didn't have the chance to.
In summary, if you're unfortunate to have children (does anyone willingly want these things?) this is the place for you. If you're a couple looking for a relax; go elsewhere.

after 13 years of raising a disabled child and feeling very stressed we took a long weekend here. Wow WOW wow. I came back feeling totally refreshed. The atmosphere was amazing, staff exceptional and the forest has a calming aura that totally chilled us all out.
The facilities were bang on , the shops were just right and the pool was fabulous.
So...you are wondering why I only put 4 stars. Sadly as our 1st visit we had no clue as to where ,what ,whys and hows and the initial reception staff did not give us the start we needed. We had booked early arrival in a disabled lodge but the receptionist told us to pull over into a side car park and wait(until we corrected her). The lodge whilst initially looking clean had a dirty floor that had been surface cleaned and the same behind the doors in the bathrooms

Room Tip: pine lodges are closer to main facilities

Had a long weekend here with ages from 1yr to 80+ yrs. Its a lovely place & we were very lucky with the weather, but if you've never been to CP before, be aware that you have to park your car at the main entrance, which can make getting around difficult. There is a cute little train that goes round the site, but I imagine its nit much fun in cold weather. The swimming pool gets ridiculously busy - get there at opening time. Accommodation a little tired for the price, but well set out & space for kids to run around outside.

A party of eight sharing a four bed Woodland Lodge found the accomodation too small, it was cramped, Kitchen & utensils were inadequate for cooking proper meals for everyone.

The general public areas were very well kept and a pleasure to walk/cycle around, mature trees & abundent fragrent flowers.

The swimming pool complex was poor, compared to other Center Parcs visited. The changing rooms were clean, but very cramped; the pool was way too small; the rapids were not free flowing and need improving.

We have visited 7 years on the trot and found Longleat brilliant. If you are reading this and have never been to Center Parcs, then you are missing a real treat. If you have kids they will love it. Everything from the accommodation, sports facilities are spotlessly clean and the staff are so friendly and willing to help in any way they can.
I would and do recommend Center Parcs, Longleat Forest without hesitation.
Do not view Center Parcs as a 'butlins type holiday park' it is not (and yes I have been)
Expensive, yes. Great fun, yes. Worth the money? Look at your kids faces and your own that will tell you! Just brilliant.

Only negative is that it can be a bit of a free for all when the barrier goes up to let you unload and reload your car on your first and last day but never a major problem.

We've been to Center Parcs Longleat many times now and never tire of it. Whilst our children have grown up and changed their likes and dislikes over the years, they have never got bored of coming here. In fact it's the only holiday they truly love. Both have been able to learn to ride their bikes here, and the excellent swimming facilities has meant that they have become so confident in the water. Because they are happy, we are happy. Yes, it can be expensive during school holidays, but going abroad is much more so and coming here is so much easier and less stressful. We probably do more activities here than anywhere else and yet the minute we arrive, we are more relaxed than ever. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. Quality fun stress-free time with the family is priceless and Center Parcs enables us to have that and more.
