Announcement: Center Parcs UK

Press releases   •   Mar 17, 2020 14:28 GMT

In light of the latest government announcement regarding coronavirus, the decision has been taken to close all of our UK villages, including Aqua Sana, from Friday 20 March to Thursday 30 April 2020.

The five UK villages are:

  • Center Parcs Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire
  • Center Parcs Elveden Forest, Suffolk
  • Center Parcs Longleat Forest, Wiltshire
  • Center Parcs Whinfell Forest, Cumbria
  • Center Parcs Woburn Forest, Bedfordshire

Our village in Ireland, Center Parcs Longford Forest, remains closed until Thursday 30 April.

We will be in contact with guests due to arrive during the closure period to move their break to a different date or arrange a full refund as soon as we can.

We recognise that this will be disappointing news for anyone looking forward to their break. We would like to thank our guests for their patience and understanding in these exceptional circumstances and look forward to welcoming them back later in the year.
