Our family stayed at the Forest Holidays in the Forest of Dean and we really enjoyed our stay. The log cabin was excellent. We had lunch one day in the café and had pizzas sent up to the cabin, both were very good too. We hired cycles and went into the forest. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only...

Went as a group of friends - 50 something ladies - for the weekend and this was a great place to stay - clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub. Beautiful location. Spacious lodge. Other reviews said the lodges were too close but we didn't think so at all. Dishwasher broke but got fixed within an hour.

7 friends and I visited an amazing holiday cabin for three nights. The bedrooms (4) and bathrooms (3) were luxurious. The open space included a large table and a jacuzzi. The living area was a large space with lots of room for 8 people.

We had tried to book Centre Parks but couldn't get the dates we wanted. So glad! Our experience here has been fantastic. The cabins are amazing with everything you need and more (ours had a hot tub!).

Service can be lousy, lunch took 45 mins for a couple of sandwiches, sausages and fish goujons. Toilets smell most of the time. While it's a welcome sight for a cold peroni at the end of the long ride up the hill, it's not somewhere I'd venture for lunch.

We've just come back from a wonderful week in the woods. Our cabin (top end, but not pre-booked location) was in a very quiet setting, not very overlooked - they all are to some extent - and quite quiet; it was just as on the website, feeling very luxurious and spacious. We were glad that we hadn't booked the wifi/entertainment...

This place was easy to find and we booked in without any problems.
