“Squirrel Fest”

Written on: 27/09/2014 by francharlie02 (1 review written)

We enjoyed our break at Sherwood Forest center parks so much that i have already booked for next year and i only got back yesterday. We loved the squirrels so much, they greeted us every morning for their nuts. So nice to see wildlife and birds, rabbits in abundance. The pool was amazing fun for all ages. The lakeside beach was a lovely idea for little ones to play on. All in all it was a wonderful holiday with many activities ensuring that you will never get bored. Amazing!!!… Read Full Review

Enjoyed our break but will not be returning as family we much prefer Whinfell which is much more compact & enjoyable Felt the lake was huge let down as no proper seating areas.The swimming pool wasn't very inviting for folk who don't do water slides not much else for them to do & lack of showers !… Read Full Review

“Perfect family break”

Perfect combination of peaceful forest setting with crazy swimming pool rapids and good choice of activities. Always something to do - not always involving money! Recommend Sherwood - people are friendly and helpful… Read Full Review

“Felt worse after the holiday ”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Russellwi337 (1 review written)

Had to clean our villa when we arrived, the whole place stunk of curry and there was sweet wrappers and chocolate stuffed down the side of the sofa cushions. Loose electrical sockets aren't ideal when you've got a toddler either. You would expect more for £1800 for the week! Police were called to the villa next door to us half way through the holiday. Was assured by security there was nothing else to worry about. Was kept awake that night with shouting from next door and the diesel engine of… Read Full Review

“Sherwood not really value for money”

Written on: 05/04/2014 by Jaywootten (1 review written)

Ants in our lodge, bathroom towel rails did not work so could not dry towel so could only swim once. Bowling lane did not work no bowling shoes for 3 yr old. When you look at competitors in the area of sherwood or longleat then they are worth considering as they generally offer the same for less money… Read Full Review

“I had a great short break!”

Written on: 15/03/2014 by susanvlatham (1 review written)

I went to Sherwood Centre Parc, with not a lot of optimism. I was pleasantly surprized. The accomodation was so lovely and clean and spacious!The attractions were just right for families with children and the staff were ALL very attentive. Even the general market was not too ever-priced and the scenery was peaceful… Read Full Review

“Family Holiday”

Written on: 22/02/2014

As a Center Parcs fan having visited since it first opened in the UK in the 1980's but not having visited the Sherwood site for a number of years I was a little worried when I read some of the reviews listed on Trip advisor. However I did not need to have worried in any way everything was up to a very acceptable standard some people may feel it is a little expensive but I feel for what you get, always provided with excellent service levels, it is good value. It is easy to navigate and very… Read Full Review

“VEry poor choice for a family with young children”

Written on: 29/01/2014

Very poor choice for a family with young children. You need to compete with the other guests to get access to the overpriced activities many of which are booked up weeks before you ever get to the site. Can not remember when I have been on holiday to a place where I needed to bring my own toilet roll or where there was no wifi/phone/3g/mobile reception … Read Full Review

“Short break at CenterParcs”

Written on: 29/11/2013

My husband and I have just enjoyed a 4 night stay at Sherwood Forest CenterParcs. The setting is beautiful and we were surrounded by wildlife including ducks, swans, rabbits and squirrels all who came to visit us on our patio every day which proved to be a unique experience. The sub-tropical dome was lovely and I will not forget swimming outside in the really warm water and looking up at the stars. We went bowling, had a go on the driving range and my husband really enjoyed Archery target… Read Full Review

Just come back today , from Sherwood. We were there to celebrate my 70th birthday & my granddaughters 4th birthday. We stayed in ash 903. It was great parking right by our villa. Accmodation was very good. All the staff very nice. Food and drinks, we're a little expensive. Supermarket we'll stocked, best one we have been into. Would I go again ? (Yes) if you need your kids to burn off some energy this is the place to go… Read Full Review

“Our Center Parcs Stay”

Written on: 28/08/2013

Having not visited centr parcs before we were pleasantly surprised at the great accommodation, the beds were fantastic. It took a while to get our bearings around the site but we found it was simple to book any event to participate in. We had a takeaway our first night which was cooked to a high standard but we felt a little pricey. The swimming complex was fantastic and a fantastic experience for any age group,we enjoyed the spa baths particularly. We went to Aqua sana for a birthday treat… Read Full Review

been going to Centre Parks since I was a kid and I love it. the one a Sherwood forest is the best and its close to where I live and has the best swimming pool and a giant slide with an inflatable donut for 4 people to sit in. the villas are realy good and not too close to each other and there are maps so you dont get lost which is easy becuase its so big. the football pitches are good for 5 a side and the tennis courts are very good and you can go on for free if your cheeky enough. theres a… Read Full Review

“Would not recommend”

Written on: 18/08/2013

I have just read some of the previous reviews. Center Parcs needs to read these and review. They are only concerned about inflating their swelling profits, and that is your money. As another reviewer commented on the "rip- off, cash generator and obvious greed". This sums up their ethos perfectly, particularly greed. I am totally disgusted at their lack of consideration, but it is their business to make money and they succeed very well. Look elsewhere before you book, but if you do beware of… Read Full Review

“Great holiday for everyone”

Written on: 27/03/2013

We have been to Centre Parcs 2 times now (we have booked another holiday now so it will soon be 3) and it has always been a brilliant experience. The wildlife there is fantastic, all the woodland creatures are friendly and come for visits to your door step daily also the view from your porch is amazing. The subtropical swimming paradise is one of the best things about Centre Parcs. There are plenty of waterslides, including the rapids and grand cascade, also a hot tub to relax in after… Read Full Review
