Center Parcs to reopen four sites next week – despite coronavirus restrictions

Some Center Parcs resorts in England are reopening next week, despite strict new regional level restrictions imposed by the government.

Four Tier 2 resorts – Elveden, Longleat, Whinfell and Woburn Forest – will open on December 4, but the Sherwood Forest site in Nottinghamshire will remain closed until December 17, at least because it is in a Tier 3.

Martin Dalby, CEO of Center Parcs, said: “We know that many families need a break after the past few months, and we are pleased to welcome them in four of our villages.

“While it is disappointing that we cannot reopen all of our villages in the UK, we know we all have a role to play at the moment and, as always, the safety of our staff and guests is our absolute priority.

“We’ve worked hard behind the scenes to make sure we can safely cheer our guests up with our Winter Wonderland, and our teams look forward to welcoming families back to the woods in a safe way.”

The resort operator added, “We will continue to support government advice, with our priority being the safety and wellbeing of our employees and guests.”

Guests whose booking has been affected by restrictions have the option to change dates with a £ 100 discount or cancel and claim a full refund.
