What’s so special about Sherwood Forest

Body Content

Legendary forest setting

Home to the infamous Robin Hood, its central location makes it easily accessible from all over the UK, making it a firm favourite for many of our Center Parcs guests. Take long woodland walks with your family in our beautiful historic pine forest with over 400 acres to explore.

Treetop Escape

Visit the Aqua Sana Spa while on your short break and experience the one of a kind Treetop Sauna and Forest Terrace. Reach new heights with this unique spa experience with three tiers to choose from. Relax and unwind as you feel your stresses melt away, and with the large panoramic window, you can bring yourself closer than ever to the tranquil forest. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and revitalised as you allow nature to lift your spirits and boost your outlook, while listening to the birds sing and the trees rustle.

Rides and slides

Make a splash in our newly refurbished Grand Cascade ride. Exclusive to Sherwood Forest, hold on tight as you twist and turn down the nearly 600m long water shoot. It’s family fun at it’s finest and an experience not to be missed!

Tropical Cyclone, Venture Bay and Venture Harbour have also arrived at Sherwood Forest as part of our brand-new renovation project. Our Subtropical Swimming Paradise is now even bigger and better than ever with something the whole family can enjoy.

Unique activities

Sherwood Forest is home to some unique activities that can’t be found at any of our other villages. Using the latest in VR technology, we have two new virtual reality experiences, Alien Invasion and Mayan Temple. Immerse yourself in these virtual worlds and experience an adventure like no other.

For a total body workout try our exclusive Hydrobikes session in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise. Combine the dynamism of indoor studio cycling with the proven benefits of water-based exercise and leave feeling refreshed and energised.

Why not book you next Center Parcs break to experience all this and more.

As PR Assistant at Center Parcs, I’m here to give you an insight into all that is new and exciting across our villages. For me, there is no better family time than a short break in the forest and I’m lucky enough to be able to share everything I know, from lovely guests stories to top tips, so you can make the most out of your stay with us.
