accommodation at Center Parcs
While it’s wonderful to be surrounded by nature, it’s even better when you can enjoy luxury amenities too. Here’s how to get the most out of your accommodation at Center Parcs
Nestled in the beautiful surrounds of Longford Forest, Center Parcs is an ideal place for families to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some quality time together.
Open 365 days a year, guests are welcome to experience the many activities, bars and restaurants before retreating to one of the warm, spacious lodges to sleep.
While each of the self-catered lodges promises a private slice of the forest (not to mention stylish accommodation for up to eight guests), there are a few things to consider. Your days will be spent in the (often cold) outdoors, so we think exclusive accommodation is not just worth it, but absolutely deserved.
The accommodation you choose will depend on which amenities you fancy. But rest assured, even the standard lodges will come with a fully equipped kitchen, an open-plan living space with a flatscreen TV and log-burning fireplace, as well as a patio with garden furniture.
Want some luxury amenities too? Here’s how to get the most out of your accommodation at Center Parcs.
To enjoy all of the practical facilities with an added touch of luxury, book your family into an Executive Lodge. Here you’ll enjoy open-plan living with a modern, stylish interior. While this is offered in all accommodation types, the interior of the Executive Lodge is styled slightly differently in terms of colours and fabrics.
Notable features include ensuite bathrooms for all bedrooms (both double or twin), flatscreen TVs in all bedrooms, and daily housekeeping services. This is in addition to the fully-equipped kitchen (which also has a wine cooler) and furnished private patio area.
What’s more, some Executive Lodges even have their own private sauna, while the four-bedroom options include a games room (perfect for late-night family fun). A number of these are specially designed for people with accessibility needs, including wheelchairs users, too.
Factoring in the hydrobath (plus the hairdryer, brick-built barbecue stand, and free wifi included in every lodge) – it’s well worth booking.
Side note for any dog owners: your pooch is more than welcome too. Center Parcs has a number of dog-friendly Executive Lodges available to ensure your four-legged friend can enjoy the relaxing family break.
Want to go all out? Why not stay in one of Center Parcs’ Exclusive Lodges – the highest quality luxury lodge at Longford Forest. These detached, two-storey, four-bedroom lodges come with outdoor hot tubs and a private games room.
Not only will you enjoy exclusive features (such as ensuite bedrooms, daily housekeeping services, flatscreen TVs in all bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen), but you will also benefit from added extras, like an outdoor hot tub, private sauna and steam room.
“We’ve taken care of everything within our Exclusive Lodges from luxury linen in bedrooms and bathrooms,” says the Center Parcs team. There are also premium sun loungers in the patio area. What more could anyone want?
Accommodation at Center Parcs is designed to allow you to spend time together, whether you’re cooking, feasting or just relaxing – but with privacy when needed. Whether you go for the functional Woodland Lodge, the ‘something extra’ Executive Lodge, or the luxurious Exclusive Lodge – you will not be disappointed.
