CENTER PARCS WOBURN FOREST
Address: Millbrook Rd, Bedford MK45 2H
Alright, it’s VERY chilly since it is the third week of January,
but the lure of the GREAT MORNING SUNSHINE is too much to ignore.
So here we are, leaving the warmth of the hotel room,
yes they have hotel rooms
for lodges are too much of a hassle if you just really want warmth and a bed.
The HOTEL & SPA (charged & booked separately)
is located at THE VILLAGE PLAZA, facing the lake,
and you have all the restaurants, grocery store, gym, etc.
without leaving the building.
If you have booked your stay in one of the lodges,
well, you have to walk quite a bit.
Walking is fun though, but not in midwinter lol.
Enough talking. Let’s go.
THE VILLAGE PLAZA
The path turning to the right in between the trees
leads to the WATER FACILITIES
(LAZY RIVER, WILD RIVER, SLIDES, etc.
– sorry no pool though which was a really big disappointment).
This lake or rather a pond is where you do all your watersports,
i.e. kayak, pedal boating, and others.
It can’t get any more zen than this can it?
Loving the walk.
Only that it is really chilly still.
PINE TREES & LODGES
CYCLE CENTRE / CYCLE HIRE
THEY EVEN HAVE A MANMADE BEACH, HOW COOL IS THAT.
is located here in the VILLAGE SQUARE.
Look for the glass-walled building, you won’t or can’t miss it.
At the time of writing, you are allowed 2 hours of SUBTROPICAL FUN SESSION per day
and you need to pre-book it.
If you want an extra SUBTROPICAL FUN,
you can always go back around 7 pm (last session) as it is free for all,
you don’t need to pre-book.
But as always, their policies could change so make sure to confirm it with the staff.
This was actually the highlight of our stay and AQUA SANA SPA,
but unfortunately, we can not show any photos
as photography is not allowed in the SUBTROPICAL SWIMMING PARADISE
and AQUA SANA SPA.
FYI: AQUA SANA SPA is located in THE PLAZA.
You need to prebook your session
and each session lasts about 2-3 hours (strictly).
You’ll be provided a complimentary tote bag and ROBE whilst inside the SPA.
You must try all the SPA facilities (which is a lot).
Mind you, I / WE could easily spend that whole session
just for the POOL/JACUZZI overlooking the forest.
The pool is best enjoyed at nighttime
as the lights around and the stillness of the forest is just so ZEN.
We’ve broken this CENTER PARCS WOBURN FOREST PARK blog
into several parts as it would take up too much LOAD TIME
to dump the whole thing in 1 blog post.
Keep an eye.
As always, STAY ZEN! BE ZEN!
