Just returned from a mid week break at Whinfell. We had a 4 bed executive lodge booked, first time in this sort of accommodation, which was fantastic. Kids loved having their own bathrooms & TVs in the rooms. We paid extra to pick a specific lodge as our eldest daughter has learning difficulties & we wanted to be as near...

Thoroughly enjoyed visit with Daughter, Son-in-law, and grandchildren. Only blemish was the Crazy Science activity which was lacking substance, interest and entertainment. Apart from that great and will be returning.

Btrilliamt range of activities for all ages - ideal for a sporty family. Had an Executive 3 bed Lodge in Seven Pines, high quality property in excellent location. Shame it is so expensive, basic holiday cost, meals and activities. Despite that had fabulous time.

As always everything was spot on. The accommodation, the pool complex, the activities were all perfect. An older park but still in good condition and the slides are a that little bit wilder than the new ones.

Enjoyed my stay at Whinfell Forest. The lodge was kept in a very good condition. Worth while to hire bikes. Swimming pool is free of charge, recommend going in the evening as it's less busy. Book activities in advance as it's recommended too.

Very expensive for a camp holiday. We first visited here 20 years ago with our children who are now grown up and had a great time. However it doesn't seem as though any work has been done since and there appears, in my opinion, to be a deterioration of almost everything. The apartment we stayed in was very dark and...

I have always loved Centerparcs, and still do. This was our second trip to Whinfell. Lakeside Apartments are clean, well equipped and close to all the amenities. The provision of wristbands which act as keys, payment devices and general ID is a fantastic bonus. As always, the wildlife and forest walks are stunning. My biggest draw to Centerparcs is the...
