Like businesses across the country, particularly the holiday industry, Center Parcs' resorts across the country have been closed for much of the last year due to lockdowns imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

That includes the hugely popular Woburn Forest resort in Bedford.

But there is now light at the end of the tunnel for the company and those looking to book a break at Woburn Forest.

That's after the company announced it plans to reopen from April 12th.

In a statement to the Bedford Times and Citizen, Center Parcs revealed the resort and it's other villages in the UK will reopen on that date if the Government's route out of lockdown does not suffer any setbacks.

"Following the latest Government announcement, we are planning to reopen our UK villages from 12 April – this is subject to the country moving to the next step of the roadmap on this date," a spokesman for Center Parcs told the Bedford Times and Citizen.

"In line with the guidance issued, guests will be able to visit with their own household in our fully self-contained lodges, but will not be able to book accommodation in either our hotel or apartments. We will be operating a restaurant delivery service and the majority of outdoor activities will be available.

"We are currently reviewing the guidance to understand exactly what restrictions will be in the place and will provide an update on this as soon as possible.

"Guests with existing bookings who no longer wish to visit will be given the option to move their dates with no amendment fee or cancel their break and receive a full refund, in line with our Book With Confidence guarantee. Any guests with breaks booked up to 11 April 2021 will be offered the same options."
