Wouldnt go there, lived about 15 miles from it and it burnt down a few years back(really) and got rebuilt and was on Watchdog about 2 years ago as it has terrible customer service, and you do realise that you pay for everything on top.

Its owned by the same people as Haven and Butlins but on top of price you pay you need to pay for entertainment too, swimming pool etc.

You will struggle to get any discount for that week as it is valentines and school hols!

We are going to Centre Parks for the May half term (family of 6 2 adults 4 kids) and it is costing under £400 in Belgium. The same week in the UK at Longleat or Sherwood Forest would cost approx £1000 for 5 of us this way my child is taking a friend. Worth looking at European sites too.
#13
Think you are mixing this up with oasis as it was, everything is included in price unless you eat/drink out

I have been 6 times and heard no complaints about customer service.

Centre parcs is owned by a French company, they bought it when oasis went bust.

It is also a forest the size of a small town and if it burnt down it would still be on fire!
#14
Wow. What a rip off (the comments)!

Nice discount though. Voted hot.
banned#15
Ah right then, I knew it was Oasis, I think it was the main buildings that burnt down, still im sure it was Centre Parcs when it was on Watchdog.

I used to live in Carlisle where most of the staff were from, and they were always asking for staff as so many left as they got minimum wage and got messed about with hours etc.

Sorry - you don't know what you are talking about. No doubt you've never even been there so how can you comment? Pool is free and is included in the price. Entertainment isn't but if it's kids entertainment and old fashioned shows then Butlins is the one you should be going to (went to both Butlins and Center Parcs last year so am qualified to comment).

Went last January and had a great time, customer service perfectly fine. Be aware it is pretty hilly compared to the flat Elvedon Forst one which i've also been to.
#17
Good find!

Centre Parcs is great
#18
This also gives 25% off weekend of 11th. You need to search first, then use the side box on the results page to see the discounted places though. If you just do a straight search it says none found, but if you search mid-week, then change the side box to weekend, up pop the 25% off deals!
#19
Would this be suitable for a couple with no kids?

What else is there to do?

Um....you are FAR from correct there. :whistling:

If you want to enjoy ANY of the activities other than swiming or walking ( for example - archery, cycling, boating, climbing, golf, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, falconry, go-karting, grass track rally, paintball, quad biking, canoing, windsurfing, padalos etc. etc) it all costs a STACK of cash.

Not diss'in the place, we go most years and always have a great time. but be aware, the costs can spiral if you're not careful.

What a rude comment I already said I must of been thinking of when it was Oasis, and I saw it on Watchdog.

And actually I have been there, I applied for a job a few years ago which I turned down later as I got a job elsewhere(not stayed there but I spoke to other staff who worked and still work there)
#22
the price of centre parcs has rocketed in the last six months , due to the upgrading of the accomodation (which was over due !!)
#23
I've been to Elveden loads of times and once to Longleat (when Elveden got burned down) it is great if you're into all the activities but yes it does cost a fortune on all the extras, I think it's just the swimming thats included.
If you're planning on doing a lot of the sports/activities be prepared to have deep pockets!

Says when i try to book the 14th jan :
Unfortunately, due to high demand we dont have availability for this type of accommodation on the date you have chosen. Please try a different date, Village or bedroom criteria using the search summary box on the right.

Plus the cheeky gits want £55 if u wish to bring a dog
#25
Noooooo I've used up all of my holidays until April :(

Excellent deal and well worth the money - myself and my gf had a great time at Whinfell last year. Some things are expensive yes, we saved some cash by getting a small grocery shop before we went to eat in most nights and spent the money we saved on pampering ourselves :)

Voted hot!

I have been with the wife b4 we had our son and there is loads to do, lots of outdoor activities and sports, swimming and slides, lots of restaurants and even a good old pub.

I had just as good a time without my son as we do now.:thumbsup:

Great find! Just booked Elveden Forest for £191! It better be good! :thumbsup:

This is a holiday in it ie in Jan looking at woods and if you want to do anything that resembles a holiday you got to pay more lots more. FFS I'll stick to good ole wales with its great views and woods and pop to thailand again for 4 weeks with a family of four, do 20+ trips, eat great food and stay in brilliant hotel with a driver to take us anywhere shop n fill 5 suitcases and still get change from 3k. Or feeeeeeeeze my balls of in Jan at centre parks and still pay 2k becasue the family will hit me for six becasue they are not going to be impressed with the countryside we errrrrr live it every day :-)

Sounds like a great deal, but if you work all year then time is precious and sounds like butlins without the fun :-)

A bit of countryside sounds nice to me. Living next to London is a bit mankey at the best of times.

In my experience, Butlins =

Mildew smells in the rooms
Dirty chalets/caravans
Overpriced Coors Beer
Tacky plastic entertainment
Sh*t overpriced food
etc
etc

We went to Whinfell in December for 4 days, and it was excellent.

Just to put things right:

1) The swimming pool is included in the price
2) There are several "play areas" for younger children that are free.
3) All activities are extra
4) Evening entertainment is sparse, and you will have to pay extra for it
5) The restaurants are very good but quite expensive - althought they are all branded restaurants now (they used to be owned by Centerparcs until very recently. So the Italian is now "Bella Italia", the french restaurant is now "Cafe Rouge" and the others are in the process of change.
6) There is a massive refurbishment programme underway, so expect some minor disruption (particularly as some roads are closed off, which caused chaos on the first day when driving to our lodge)
7) The on-site supermarket is very reasonably priced, so you can eat cheaply using the self-catering facilities in the lodge
8) If you want a cheap, quiet holiday where you can relax and walk and swim, then choose this deal. If you want cheesy evening entertainment included then go to Butlins. Simple.

:santa:Hey Mister_E.

I like the sound of your Thailand holiday. Why don't you post details of that as a hot deal so we can all enjoy some of the same. I was wondering where to take my family this summer and wjat you've just described sounds great, particularly the price.

Cheers.:-D

I have been to Whinfell three Summers in a row. I have 3 small kids, so they don't cost too much as we really only use the pool which is free.
It is a great location and it hasn't burnt down.
I think its really suited to families. I wouldn't recommend it for couples, all the activities are over priced. You may as well just get a normal self catering cottage in the Lake District.
The other main attraction for children is that cars have restricted access, so its really just cycling and walking to get around.
We also book a big chalet and get the grandparents to come to help, helps bring the cost right down.
As the children get older they will want to do all the costly activities. I think we will start going abroad when they get older though.

The restaurants are expensive but the supermarket is ok. Never sampled the evening entertainment, apart from a few drinks at the bar.

You don't know much then, it was Elveden that burnt down a few years back and the pool is free.

If I get time I will Pussy Cat, we had a brilliant time best hol we've ever been on. I've always fancied center parks mind you, the idea is brilliant but I dont like buying an idea and then getting stung lots and lots when your there to live it. Also I do think for many in the cities a break to a bit of country side is a good idea too :-) Likewise I spent 4k taking them to florida (disney etc) last year I went in 1992 and it was brilliant then, now its terrible and I'll never go there again lol, its like porthcawl except rougher and more dirty. I'm not one for going oooooo spent lots must say had a nice time it was great. It wasnt I hated it but done everything for the kids, they liked it the misses also thought it was a toss hole, but many love it. Funny enough my mate jsut took his kids and he went in 1992 too, I said nowt and he came back and said the same thing that its poverty / crime town. I was looking at the center parks becasue we got a dog now and I dont want to leave him to go abroad :-) I've been many places in the world and worked in many, but Thailand is without a doubt the best ihmo :-)
#36
The site is great - been already - gonna book again. Voted hot:santa:

Been to center parcs loads of times - also gonna try the Belgian site and looking into the site in France (I think) that does skiing.

Thank you very much for insulting my intelligence.

Strange though it was on Border news at the time and the road to it was blocked off.

Centre parcs is owned by a French company, they bought it when oasis went bust.

It is also a forest the size of a small town and if it burnt down it would still be on fire!

Center Parcs UK is owned by an American Venture Capitalist company called the Blackstone group. Before this it was owned by Scottish & Newcastle breweries.

Don't get the Center Parcs UK confused with the European Center Parcs. The European venture is owned by a French company called Pierre et Vacances. To all intents an purposes they are completely seperate organisations.

The central plaza thing did indeed burn down at Whinfell a few years ago and took out all the major facilities such as restaurants etc. The camp was closed for a year whilst it was rebuilt.

Oh, an it was on Watchdog for bad service. I suspect they have improved as Watchdog don't appear to have done a follow up!

Well I stand by what I say, it was Elveden that burnt down and the pool is free at all Center Parcs.
