To preserve our safe and natural environment, cars are not permitted to drive around the village during your break. The only exception is when you are loading and unloading your belongings on arrival and departure days. All cars are to be returned to the main car park, with the exception of accommodation with a designated parking space.

Please vacate your accommodation by 10am on the morning of departure and return your wristband on exiting the village. Wristband deposit boxes are available at Guest Services or alternatively, once you have loaded your vehicle, you can deposit your wristbands in the boxes next to the village exit barriers as you return to the main car park. We ask that you kindly help us by leaving your lodge in a reasonable condition, please remove your waste to the recycling bins and pop the dishwasher on before you leave. 

Don’t forget you are welcome to spend the rest of the day with us on your departure day, however please ensure your car is returned to the car park and vacate the village by midnight. Should you need to leave the village before departure day for any reason please inform Guest Services or Security, prior to departing. 

Driving around the village

To preserve our safe and natural environment we restrict the use of guest cars within the village. Guests are only permitted to use their cars within the village for unloading/loading at their accommodation on arrival and departure. Our staff and sometimes refurbishment/maintenance teams will need to use vehicles to travel around the village but this will be kept to a minimum.

Woburn Forest only: Hotel and spa day guests may use their cars to travel to and from the hotel and our Aqua Sana Spa. Hotel guests may use the hotel car park to unload, however please ensure your car is returned to the main car park.
