... gin was cheaper to drink; men and women lost their hair (including eyebrows) due to wearing make-up that was lead-based, so they fashioned mouse skin into eyebrow shapes (and wore wigs) - water in the spas/springs contains 43 minerals and has to be cooled to 33 degrees from 49 degrees (it was hot to touch) - Bath fairly busy traffic-wise as there is no bypass, so all traffic must come through - Jane ...

... of Sighs. We were late getting back to the car, but still managed to get there in time to buy another hour parking pass with the plan of hitting the White Horse pub for lunch before maybe peeking back in to Blackwell's for a second before leaving town.

What we didn't plan for was the evil power emanating from Blackwell's Books that sucked us in effortlessly. One does not simply "peek into" Blackwell's any more than customers at a buffet turn down seconds. We got sucked ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Center Parcs Longleat Forest Warminster

    Dreadful accommodation

    from

    Center Parcs ia a fabulous place - beautiful forest, excellent facilities. However the basic 'Comfort Villa' experience was horrible. These are portacabins stuck in the woods - they are dated, cramped, tatty, not remotely comfortable and in our case, dirty (fag burn in sheets!). We will never go back, although the more expensive villas looked lovely (from the outside). If you're gonna go, pay for the top standard or don't bother. We quit our 3 day break after a day, we just couldn't sit in that depressing hovel any longer.

    Not cheap but good family fun !

    from

    Have just returned form a weekend break staying in a 2 bedroom "comfort" (basic) villa.

    Avoid Longleat at all costs

    from

    If you are thinking of visiting a Center Parcs don't pick this one

    Wasn't too sure but had a good time

    from

    We booked a 4 night break at the last minute so didn't recieve any literature regarding the resort and package.

    Loved it again - But pricey

    from

    This is the third time we have visited this Center Parc and once again we had a great time. We had originally booked an executive apartment but were immediately disappointed. Whilst clean and adequate it wasnt a patch on the executive villas and we asked to move. To the sites credit we were moved straight away and from that point on had a blast. We went bowling, did archery, rode our bikes for miles and attended the fondue evening at the pancake house.

    IT IS EXPENSIVE! If you're on a budget, bring your own food and cook in the adequate kitchen with each villa.

    And lock your bike, my wifes was taken but we found it later the same day.

    Strange 'Villas'

    from

    Center Parcs accommodation is mostly in 'Villas'. You will not find any images of these on their web site, apart from a brief description as 'single storey accommodation'. They seem to be shy of showing people what they are getting. See my photos. The building at first looks like a portacabin, or even a electrical utility building. Calling them 'Villas' is a con. Chalet or even bungalow would be a fairer description. Inside however, it is very nice. Spacious, with fixture and fittings of a good standard. Its also very clean, and quite light inside. This was an 'executive villa' and cost 785 pounds for a 3 night weekend. With 3 bedrooms its quite a good base for a family.

    Walking in a winter wonderland

    from

    Just returned from a midweek (5 day)break and want to go back already! We booked a pinewood apartment (penthouse, 2 storey with private sauna on balcony)and it was exactly 27 steps to the Plaza (my husband counted!). The bed was comfy enough - and although there were a few things (non essential for us luckily)missing from the inventory when we arrived - after reporting them on arrival, they were replaced within hours.

    Mixed feelings

    from

    My partner and I stayed at Longleat CP November 2004, and despite the fact it was out of season we still had to pay £350 for the weekend and all we got was a little apartment!Although the apartment was nicely furnished(with a lovely bathroom) it was quite a distance from the Plaza and the Jardin de sports. It was awful weather(which wasnt anyones fault obviously)but it meant that we got drenched cycling anywhere. The pool is truly wonderful, for kids and adults alike, we spent all day in the pool as there wasnt much else to do due to the weather. The retaurant we ate in(an italian one I think) was overpriced and dissapointing. We were unable to try the Indian as it is over the other side of the complex and we were unwilling to cycle over in the dark in the poaring rain!We went out for a drink one night, but it was a bit dull to be honest. We tried the spa, which was lovely but rather expensive.

    Fantastic UK short break!

    from

    I stayed at Centre Parcs Longleat Forest earlier this year. I was very lucky as the weather was amazing, so I could spend the whole week outdoors - there is certainly a lot of outdoor activities.

    Great fun for a weekend!

    from

    Center Parcs is excellent to go for a weekend. I think staying for a week might be too long but ive only ever stayed for the weekend. Having stayed at the Center Parc in Longleat, Wiltshire many times, i can safely say ive never had bad memories of the place. As a teenager I hugely enjoy the vast swimming complex, with the exciting rapids being the standout ride. Anyone with an interest with sports (i love them) will find themselves in heaven in the Jardin de sports, a complex which features many tennis courts, indoor badminton, squash and soft tennis courts and also snooker and table tennis tables. Almost every need is catered for. There is also a vast lake where you can practise sailing among over things.
