8 things you probably didn’t know about whinfell forest

1 The forest has been known as ‘Whinfell’ since at least 1203 when it’s mentioned in ancient documents, being gifted by King John

2 Whinfell Forest’s Subtropical Swimming Paradise is the only one to feature a rip-roaring Canyon Ride that takes you twisting and turning along outdoor flumes through the forest

3 It was opened as ‘Oasis Lakeland Holiday Village’ in 1997 before being bought by Center Parcs in 2001 – as Oasis, it included a Burger King and a Hard Rock Café!

4 Whinfell Forest is home to some of the rarest flora and fauna in the United Kingdom – it’s one of a handful of red squirrel sanctuaries in the country, and you can spot the very rare orchid, Creeping Lady’s Tresses

5 It’s the only Center Parcs village with a live entertainment venue – there are shows held in the Green Room throughout the year, including the sell-out Christmas pantomime

6 The lodges at Whinfell Forest are unlike those at other villages – they’re built in the traditional Scandinavian style, with pitched roofs, two storeys and dark wooden cladding

7 Lakeside Inn, our waterfront gastro pub with its over-the-water decking and unparalleled views across the lake, is exclusive to Whinfell Forest

8 Whinfell Forest is the only village to feature a Golf Driving Range, where you can work on your technique in stunning surroundings
