Forest leisure operator Center Parc is hoping for a boost to business this year as it continues to invest in facilities at four of its sites, including Elveden Forest in East Anglia.

Center Parcs is already adding 57 additional lodges, including 15 Woodland Lodges and 42 Executive Lodges, at its newest village, Woburn Forest, in Bedforeshire, under a project valued at £11.4m.

This follows last November's opening of 48 new 'Breckland Apartments' at Elveden Forest in Suffolk, featuring a double or twin beds, a self-catering kitchen, a living area, an en-suite shower room and a balcony.

There is also a new addition at Eleveden for companies booking a teambuilding event in the form of The Drop, the newest addition to the range of activities at Action Challenge. Delegates can climb to the top of a tower and take on the Double Drop Zip Wire, Air Bag Jump, Leap of Faith and Quick Jump at heights of up to 10 metres.

Work is also underway on developing Aqua Sana's World of Spa concept at Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, for delegates and guests looking for a more sedate activity and due to be completed in early 2017.
