I am currently staying in a Woodland Lodge at Center Parcs Longleat (in PINE 190-200 area).

What would you like to know about the accommodation?

Entrance Hall:
Coat rack and shoe rack

Boiler/Storage Room contains: Highchair, Cot (requires some assembly), Iron and Ironingboard, Electronic Safe, Dustpan & Brush, Vacuum cleaner.

Toilet: Dual-Flush toilet, toilet brush, handbasin.

Master Bedroom:
Double bed, two small bedside tables, radio alarm clock, wardrobe, shelving, mirror, hairdryer and stool. There is a large picture of a flower on the wall.

Microwave (750 watt I think), Dishwasher (with 3 dishwasher tablets), Kettle, Toaster, Small sink with integrated draining board, Fridge. Gas Oven (haven't used this yet) and Gas Hob.

6 towels were supplied. There is a toilet, sink and bath with shower (right hand tap controls the water temperature, left hand tap controls water quantity... turning towards you for shower, away from you for bath). There is a volume control, which lets you listen to the sound from the TV (in the lounge).

Hope this is of help to those of you planning your first visit to Center Parcs. What you get in each villa may vary a bit, but this is what I have in the villa I am currently staying at.

What else would you like to know?

When you don't take children, you get lots of time to do what you like!

Have you seen the deer ? We had a really tame one at the back of our villa when we went. Wish I was there have fun !

does it smell musty? have you seen any ufo's?

nannynick Wed 14-Jan-09 10:10:35

Having late breakfast, so checking in.
No musty smell (or cats wee smell as some refer to it), so the cleaners must have changed brand of cleaning liquid.
UFO's? No, only Deer, Squirrels, Rabbits etc.

TonyAlmeida - adults go for the Spa, at least that's why I come.

After we fed the ducks on the patio, huge rats used to come and clean had them visit?

nannynick Wed 14-Jan-09 10:15:41

No unwelcome visitors noticed, though it does not surprise me as rats get everywhere.

AccidentalMum Wed 14-Jan-09 10:23:05

When I thought about it I wasn't was just the contrast with the snow white stlye bunnies and ducks scene.

Have you not got squits yet - most of the people I know who go to Center Parcs end up sick!

lovelysongbirdie Wed 14-Jan-09 10:55:35

how much did it cost and for how long ?

nannynick Wed 14-Jan-09 12:35:36

Out on my lunchtime walk. Peace and quiet with great mobile reception at this spot im at.
Cost wise, villa was £200 for 4 nights mon-fri.
Yes i can be scaringly observant at times.

lovelysongbirdie Wed 14-Jan-09 12:42:15

200 quid for 4 nights thats goos i looked thi sabout was about 400 for 3 nights in march

KatyMac Wed 14-Jan-09 12:48:13

You girls obviously haven't met Nick - I have & would fully expect that level of details grinwink

lovelysongbirdie Wed 14-Jan-09 12:51:53

grin its very funny thoughgrin

nick are you like this when you visit peoples houses?

onepieceofbrusselssprout Wed 14-Jan-09 12:52:00

What colour is the dustpan and brush?
I am joking by the way in case you are in any doubt!

Check if your bottle opener is there in the kitchen drawer. Ours was missing, presumed stolen, as was the microwave. The lovely staff turned out very late on their rounds to replace both. I wasn't bothered about the m'wave so much but NONE of the wide assortment of other kitchen implements could open the wine grin

Clearly center parcs is dull as shit.

As i'd imagine.

nannynick Wed 14-Jan-09 13:32:55

Well it is winter!
My flat is very dull as well and small. Villa here is about 4 times the size of my flat.

Nick, just wanted to drag this thread up to ask you have the TV is like in the woodland lodges? I know they have lcd's and dvd's, is it some sort of dodgy "center parcs" tv with 3 shitty channels and then an adverts channel?

We are off next week and can't find any info. I know you are anal enough to know these things! grin

nannynick Sat 16-May-09 23:49:45

Yes alas it is like a hotel tv - usual main 4 (may have had CH5) plus then a few other channels. Think it did have CBeebies during the day and I think one was Jetix (or some other strange tv channel showing badly dubbed Japanese cartoons). Think there was a news channel - Sky News I think.

I know this will surprise you... but I didn't make a note of which TV channels there were - so relying on my bad memory grin

PfftTheMagicDragon Sun 17-May-09 08:12:32

Thanks nick.

And next time, make notes [whip]grin
