A great holiday, once again. Our second four day stay. The 3 bedroom lodge was ideal with plenty of room for four adults and our two grandchildren. The cooking facilities were generally good and clean. The bathroom and toilet faciliies were clean and having two toilets is very handy when you have young children. The park has great leisure activities...

The water park was really nice but my son got hurt as there was a stone in the pool. The food market place was over priced and specially the restaurants were really expensive. Even the cycling rental prices for basic bikes and MTBs were very high. Even the house keeping was not free!! It is advisable to bring your own...

I've been going to Sherwood Forest for 14 years now with a large group of friends, ages ranging from new born babies to the elder parents. Center Parcs look after us well and ensure that we are always in villas next to each other ensuring that our social weekend away is as good as it should be. The accommodation is...

Center Parcs is our annual holiday that we always make sure we book in! We've been many times throughout each month of the year but we'll always tend to book in Sept/Nov/Jan time, purely because of price but also because of the season. We LOVE the cold and cosy-ing up by the fire in our apartment. We spend every day...

Amazing weekend. Accommodation clean and in good order and the beds are really comfortable. All restaurants provide excellent food even if a little more expensive than at home. You do have the option to eat in if you come as a family which would keep costs down. The aqua sauna was wonderful as only just been refurbed and it's a...

I'm afraid if I stated everything that was wrong with this place, I would be here all day and people would get bored half way through reading. What I will say, is that every issue we encountered has been raised on other reviews and clearly nothing has been done to correct these problems. The accommodation was dirty (plug holes full...

We have just returned from a wonderful family break at Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest. We were a family of ten with ages ranging from 4 to 70 and there was something for everyone. The Lodges were perfect, well situated with ample space, warm, comfortable, well equipped kitchen and spotlessly clean. We hired bikes, and took part in a range of...

Family break, great atmosphere around park. When we first arrived and went to sports bar, busy and noisy , not a great first impression, but once we spent time around the park we felt differently. Decided to eat in curry house , Bella Italia and pancake house after reviews. All lovely but pricey as I expected. Hired a cabana at...

The sun is shining and the place gives a great sense of well-being. Geese and squirrels hopping around as we eat from our private BBQ. Outside school hols so a good price on a big lodge. The written word isn't a strength of CP. I think they expect orienteers as guests rather than poets. The lodge safe instructions are plain...

Went here mon-fri with my wife, son & my parents. We had requested a lodge fairly close to the centre because one of my parents is visually impaired. When we arrived the lodge we had was up 30 steps! Not the best start. Activities were great, the aerial adventure was fantastic, bowling was well worth the money. Swimming was ok,...
