Aerial Adventure: new element at Elveden Forest
Back in November, we told you about the new elements of Aerial Adventure in place at Whinfell and Sherwood Forest. This month, Elveden Forest has had the Aerial Adventure treatment, with an exciting new ‘twisted ladder’ added to the obstacle course up in the canopy. If you’re visiting soon, be sure to check it out.
Have you voted?
For the 13th year running, we are delighted to announce we’ve been nominated in the coveted ‘Best UK Holiday Provider’ category for the annual Tommy’s Awards. Late last year, 2.5 million parents were asked to nominate the brands and companies that make lives a little easier for families with babies and young children. We’re really proud to have won this award for the past 12 years and we hope that, with your continued support, we can keep up that record this year.
Voting is open until 5pm on Wednesday 10 February, 2016, and you can vote for Center Parcs here.
A new arrival
This month our Facebook fans went crazy for the story of Baby Reuben, who was born on Boxing Day in the middle of his parents’ Longleat Forest break. If you missed it, read about Rory, Helen and Reuben’s incredible story.
Taking Woburn Forest back in time
After catching up with Woburn Forest Ranger Lucie, we brought you the exciting news that she and her team had discovered ancient hedgerow on the Village and were in the process of recreating it. This is part of our ongoing journey to support a diverse and healthy range of wildlife at Woburn Forest, and you can read about it here.
New Year makeovers for Sports Café
Work has begun on sprucing up the Sports Café at Sherwood Forest and Elveden Forest. To ensure the work doesn’t disrupt your break, it’s being in done in a series of phases and will be complete by the end of April 2016 – just in time for summer. The fresh new look will modernise the venue at both Villages, which is one of our most popular with guests, whether it’s a full cooked breakfast, a hot baguette at lunch time, or dinner and drinks while you watch the match on the wide screens.
Exclusive new treatments at Aqua Sana
Elemis have a new menu of spa treatments, and they’ve decided to bring them exclusively to Aqua Sana at each of our Villages until mid-February. So if you fancy a treatment or could do with a spot of pampering, head down sharpish to be one of the first to try them. Find out more about the treatments available.
This is going to be a busy year. We’ve got new activities coming, accommodation upgrades and, we hope, work will begin on Center Parcs Longford Forest in Ireland.
