The holiday chain is a favourite among families looking for a UK trip. Brookfield had appointed investment bankers to sound out potential buyers, the Financial Times reports.

Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire was the first UK location to open in 1987. Elveden Forest, Longleat Forest, Whinfell Forest and Woburn Forest are all included in the portfolio for the  UK holiday chain’s villages.

Back in 2019, the first Centre Parcs site in Ireland was opened. Centre Parcs Longford Forest is close to Ballymahon, County Longford.
