Go behind the scenes at The Pancake House

Just as we’ve brought you the new Dining In menu, we’re at it again! This time, it’s the beloved Pancake House that’s getting some exciting new additions to its menu.

It doesn’t launch until October, but we couldn’t possibly keep you hanging for that long, so we’ve brought you a sneak preview from the menu photo shoot. There are hints and clues as to what might be coming to an American stack near you very soon…

New land trains unveiled at Longleat Forest

Longleat Forest is the only Center Parcs Village to feature land trains, which help transport our guests to and from their accommodation, activities and restaurants. We’ve just welcomed two beautiful, shiny new engines to the fleet, the Willow Wonderer and Ash Adventurer.

Why not hop on the land train during your break and try the most stylish way to get around the Village? The trains run from 8.30am until 11.00pm, arriving every 20 minutes, with a reduced service on arrival and departure days.

Infographic inspiration

We brought you this infographic on nine ways to spend your Center Parcs summer break. From building sandcastles on the beach to firing up the barbecue on your private patio, check it out for break inspiration.

Stories under the Stars

As summer looks like it might be about to dip below the horizon for another year, it’s time to make the most of those last few mild nights by spending quality family time together outdoors. Our new series, Stories under the Stars, helps you do just that.

Offering inspiring ideas for you and your family to get together at the end of a long busy day, the first two instalments of this new series are available for you to read now – classic campfire recipes and an introduction to family stargazing.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next piece, about identifying the wildlife you can see and hear out at night, whether you’re in your back garden or staying in Center Parcs.

Winter (Wonderland) is coming

The team is busy preparing for the incoming grotto, lights, reindeer, elves and the big man himself – Santa. Find out more about spending the perfect family Christmas at Woburn Forest.

Over the next few months, we’ll be tracking the creation of Winter Wonderland at Woburn, bringing you exclusive access to how we go about getting the Village ready for these very important guests.
