Center Parcs UK and Ireland has been a separate company to Center Parcs Europe since 2001; the two organisations only share a brand name and the core concept of family short breaks in the forest. Center Parcs has six villages: Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, Elveden Forest in Suffolk, Longleat Forest in Wiltshire, Whinfell Forest in Cumbria, Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire and Longford Forest in Ireland. Each village is nestled within 350-400 acres of woodland with a variety of activities to choose from, as well as restaurants and cafes. There is also a Subtropical Swimming Paradise and award-winning Aqua Sana Spa. Center Parcs offers weekend, (Friday to Monday) or midweek (Monday to Friday) breaks and welcomes more than 2.1 million guests each year, with 96% of guests expressing an intention to return. Visit England recently awarded the company five stars for the UK sites (scoring each village between 90% and 98%), making comments about the friendly nature and efficiency of the staff and the quality and cleanliness of the facilities. As the leader in the UK short break holiday market, Center Parcs achieves average annual occupancy in excess of 97%.
