Customers ranked cleanliness and quality of the accommodation four out of five stars.

Activities around the parks include nature walks, kayaking and cycling.

One guest said: “It’s possibly not a holiday for anyone looking for constant entertainment and activities like [at] Center Parcs.

“However, if you like long walks with your dog through forests and quiet paths, hill walking, cycling or just a bit of peace and quiet, it’s ideal.”

The overall verdict from Which? said: “Perfect for a relaxing break in nature, but the hot tub lodgings ramp up the cost.”
