Center Parcs is a car-free environment, making it the ideal place to get close to nature. A majority of guests choose cycling as their way of getting around, bikes are available to hire from the Village Cycle Centre.

Center Parcs’ uniquely designed rooms also feature a mirror behind the exposed headboard with mirror behind which has been added to give depth and space to the room and to draw the forest surroundings into the bedroom. The bed is situated in the centre of the room, with the toilet and washing facilities tucked away behind it for added privacy.

Amongst the 75 Hotel rooms, there are a selection of rooms with self-catering facilities, offering guests the chance to prepare refreshments and meals in the comfort of their own space.

Woburn Construction Director, Don Camilleri, said: “I first saw this room design in the Tyrol Valley while on holiday and it was perfect for the new Center Parcs Village. The rooms felt spacious but cosy and celebrated the beautiful setting. Like Center Parcs, it’s the connection with the outside that guests want and every aspect of the room design embodies that. They are simple, stylish and comfortable, offering luxury accommodation for pairs, close to nature”.
