Nestled in 362 acres of Bedfordshire forest, the latest Center Parcs village has now opened its doors to holidaymakers.
The Woburn Forest centre saw the arrival of its first guests eager to relax in its wooden lodges and subtropical pool complex.
Waiting to greet them personally was Center Parcs chief executive Martin Dalby, who said: “After years of hard work, dedication and passion, we’re thrilled that Woburn Forest is opening and we’re ready to welcome our first guests.
“There is already a real buzz around the new village and we hope that families are as excited as we are at the prospect of a short break at Woburn Forest.
“Everything about the new Village is the culmination of 27 years of experience and lots of guest research into what modern families are looking for.
“We are determined to offer the best short break experience for families, unrivalled in quality by anyone else in Europe.”
Center Parcs predicts 350,000 people will take a short break at Woburn this year, the fifth resort the firm has opened in the UK.
As well as the boasting the largest Subtropical Swimming Paradise, which houses more than 6,000 plants from areas threatened by deforestation in South East Asia, the site has an outdoor infinity pool overlooking the forest.
