Take a trip to the woods at Center Parcs Elveden Forest
Share This Article:
Can’t afford a holiday abroad but hate the prospect of holidaying in damp England? Impossible, you may say - but it most certainly isn’t. Set in over 200 acres of picture perfect woodland, Center Parcs holiday villages, of which there are currently five with plans in place for a sixth opening in 2019, cater for small family breaks and pampering spa weekends. Having visited previous villages throughout my childhood, this time around we opted for a family break at Elveden Forest in Suffolk. After checking in at the Arrivals Lodge, we quickly got to grips with the village's one-way system to access our villa. Based in the Maple area, our Executive Lodge offered an open plan living space with a modern touch, set deep in the heart of the forest. Equipped with all the essentials of a self-catering apartment, alongside added bonuses such as daily maid service, flat screen televisions in all bedrooms, and a jacuzzi bath, it acted as the perfect base to the weekends activities. As with all Center Parcs villages, the holiday homes are situated around the outside of the complex, with a main epicentre acting as the hub of activity for the break. Elveden’s meandering Village Square boasts restaurants of endless variety, from the rich smells and spices of Rajinda Pradesh’s contemporary Indian, to American classics at Huck’s. Popular family chains in the guise of Bella Italia, Café Rouge, and Starbucks are also all available and offer menus at similar prices to their high-street equivalents. If eating in is more your thing, Dining In offers a delicious takeout service, with the ParcMarket, Center Parcs own supermarket chain, open well into the evening.
