"There’s so many activities for the children and family. The swimming pool is a must! With all the decorations and real effort the staff put in or really is just so magical. Highly recommend a family festive break here" - @JasmineB


"Santa was fantastic, we booked to see him at 10.15 on Sunday morning and there was no queue at all. It always seemed busier in the evening. The little ones can fill out a letter for santa, post in the magical post box and then when they woke up in the morning a response letter from santa was left on the door step of our lodge. Such a lovely touch." – Michelle M 


"She got a reply from the Big Man!! This is such a nice touch from Center Parcs 📮🎅🏼" - @gemma.thompson


"Lovely weekend seeing Santa and elves. Light show was magical. The children loved it with wreath making for adults. Also the usual visits to the swimming pool. The lodge was lovely and clean and had everything you needed. Deers and squirrels came right up to the lodge." – Margaret S


"We visited for Winter Wonderland and had a fantastic time. Santa and all the lights and festivities were super. The staff were attentive and professional. Our lodge was spotless. Everything was fantastic from the restaurants and activities" - Stephanie P


"Had a fabulous stay. I have been coming to this Center parcs for 30 years we always enjoy the tranquility of the woods. The lodges are very clean and warm. Dog friendly. Site is well kept and managed. Winter wonderland was fantastic." – Lindawest44


"We have just returned from a long weekend as part of the Winter Wonderland breaks and were thrilled with the experience. The Christmas decor on site is lovely. The light experience and other decorations made for a lovely festive atmosphere and Santa's Woodland Workshop was really nicely done. The site itself had a lovely atmosphere with Christmas music playing and generally never felt too busy which was lovely in the current climate" - Adam N


"Visited with husband and two sons 7 and 4 for Winter Wonderland. It was amazing my sons faces were mesmerised by all the lights, displays, the staff dressed as elves all were happy and cheerful. The grotto and visit to Father Christmas 🎅 was something my boys will never forget." – Laura H


"The Winter Wonderland was so amazing, fake snow falling from the trees, plenty to see the light show was brilliant - we went every day. The light trail and footpaths after dark were well presented with fairy lights. The Christmas craft activities were great too. We made and decorated biscuits and Izzy made her stocking for Santa." – Laurence S


"We've been going to Winter Wonderland since 2013 and we love Centerparcs for a winter break as a family. It's now a ritual and we really value it as family time. The lights, the wreath on our lodge door, the swimming pool and cycling around are all amazing." – Keen Campers
