Festive lights at Center Parcs Whinfell - day
Festive lights at Center Parcs Whinfell - day
Almost the end of the 'Festive Season', and the whole site was still well, but tastefully, decorated with trees and other static objects garlanded with white LEDs, and an abundance of similarly decorated seasonal animals. For a view at night see NY5726 : Festive lights at Center Parcs Whinfell - evening.
Center Parcs at Whinfell :: NY5727
This hotel/resort complex is in about 160 ha [400 acres] of maturing forestry just east of Penrith. It is now just over 20 years old, and the 800+ 1-6-bedroom lodges are nicely dispersed in groups of about 10 throughout the area. There are also some apartments by the lake. Organised activities are plentiful, indoors and out, with abundant opportunities for various sports, swimming, cycling, and many other activities indoor and out, although the organised ones would rack up a biggish bill for a family of four over a long weekend. There is a large Sports Plaza, lake and Village Centre, and plenty of eating opportunities. It is a largely car-free zone, with a huge car park on the northern side of the complex. LinkExternal link
