Center Parcs Whinfell Forest Penrith

We visited Center Parcs for the first time ever. My wife, I and our 16 month old son in tow, we had a four bedroom lodge to accommodate us and 2 couples and their baby each. Even though it was 3 couples and 3 babies in total, we had to book a four bedroom lodge as a three bed was not allowed for health and safety reasons.   

The Lodge

We had lodge number 25 in Lake Beck, a very nice lodge with 2 car loading spaces in front  of it, quite close to the bins on the  main path for us to dispose nappies! The living area was big, couch that would easily site 5 people along with 2 single seater sofas. Was pretty impressed with the large 8 seater  dinning table. The kitchen was open plan type with lots of crockery and cutlery provided. The 4 bedrooms were quite small, 2 double bed and 2 twin beds, one room with a tv.we all had brought our own travel cot however they do provide a wooded cot in the dinning area. Our cots just managed to fit into the bedrooms, I can say the one they provide will not really fit into any of the bedrooms. There was a hoover provided, iron, board, hair dryers and towels. 

Some tips on what things you may need day to day that they do not provide:

  • Washing up liquid
  • Cooking oil
  • Kitchen roll
  • Cling film and foil
  • Shower gel and shampoo
  • Toilet roll (you get 2 rolls provided) 
  • Slippers
