Where's Landal Darwin Forest?
mrs winton
this was our 6th stay at darwin forest and already booked for 2012. So much to see and do in and around the local area.The staff are fantastic.A fantastic holiday for all the family. Cant wait to get there in the summer.
Susan, Cambridge
Date of stay: 29th October 2018
Exceptional standard. Roomy but cosy, warm and very very clean. With everything we needed.
Michael, Falkirk
Date of stay: 20th October 2018
We had a fantastic time. The lodge was extremely comfortable. Only reason it didn't score a 10 was because its age was showing a little bit in places and the kitchen was a little cramped compared to our expectations. We'd have no hesitation in returning though.
Brian, Kilmarnock
Date of stay: 19th October 2018
High quality accommodation and facilities. Its as good as any self catering Ive ever stayed in. I highly recommend and look forward to coming back.
Samantha, Luton
Date of stay: 19th October 2018
we visited twice this year. Fantastic stay both times
Claire, Stirlingshire
Date of stay: 19th October 2018
This is a lovely site, with so many things to do nearby. It's quite small in comparison to other parks that are similar to Landal, but we found that to be a positive. The accommodation is of a high standard, and what was particularly good was that the couches in the lounge were fabric, even in a pet friendly lodge (rather than the vinyl ones that are elsewhere).
The amenities are more limited - swimming pool quite small, one restaurant on site (but good selection of food) with activities such as tennis, pitch and putt, cycle hire and a few other options. However, the cost of these are lower and if you're only there a few days, then there's still enough to do.
All in all, we would definitely recommend Darwin and these lodges.
Andrea, Leicestershire
Date of stay: 15th October 2018
We have visited as a family of 5 (children 15,13,9) a few times and have always loved the site, facilities and accommodation. The cabin has everything you need and is so clean and cosy, the staff are all approachable and helpful and the facilities (we used the on-site restaurant, swimming pool, crazy golf, and shop are all brilliant. Only slight negative to visiting is that it is an expensive break away and the food can be pricey in the restaurant but the quality is there and you do get what you pay for I suppose!
Wendy, Hull
Date of stay: 15th October 2018
Very well kept lodge and park . Very friendly and helpful staff in all departments . Hot tub checked daily if not more . On site facilities good. Restaurant good quality food and choice .

Debi, Norwich
Date of stay: 5th October 2018
The skyline lodge in the meadow complex was fab, well fitted out, comfortable and quiet. Everything you need is there. The only thing we could grumble about was the lack of a sharp knife! We will be returning.
Fiona
Date of stay: 28th September 2018
Despite a late booking discount we still felt our stay was overpriced as we were staying off peak.
Andrew, Solihull

One of the best holidays we have had so far. Derbyshire is a beautiful place and Darwin forest has become one of our favourite places to go and explore.
Hazel, London
Date of stay: 24th August 2018
Best British holiday I think Ive had!
Lisa, Darlington
Date of stay: 24th August 2018
All round excellent site. We took our son who uses a wheelchair and the facilities catered for him well. A hoist on the pool side may have been advantageous. But we managed fine. The staff were excellent and even put on an extra archery lesson for us as the existing lessons were all full. We had an assistance dog with us and he was welcomed without question and the dog walks on site were an added bonus for him. I would definitely recommend this site. You won't be disappointed.
Vicki, Doncaster
Date of stay: 20th August 2018
Fantastic lodge and hot tub would definitely return!
Laura, Bedford
Date of stay: 18th August 2018
Great week, we would definitely return to this holiday park.
Wendy, Hertfordshire
Date of stay: 18th August 2018
Cabin was far more comfortable than we expected and it was a nice surprise to find that it actually had a washing machine as that wasn't mentioned in the description.

The biggest downside was the complete lack of a mobile signal and the rather poor wifi reception. As a result my mobile phone had no service most of the time. Not an overwhelming problem as I didn't intend to use it much but not being contactable in the event of an emergency was rather disconcerting. You definitely need to make sure you leave the contact number for the site office with anyone who may need to get hold of you urgently.

We were rather put off by the dire warnings of needing to book in advance if you wanted to eat in the restaurant but soon found out that you could just order the same food in the bar on an adhoc basis.

All in all very pleasant and relaxing. Dog enjoyed it as well.
David, Jarrow

Claire, Kent
Date of stay: 28th July 2018
lovely and clean with great facilities on offer. didn't feel cramped as staying with friends
only negative I would say was the outside table was lovely but a bit too big for the terrace as couldn't all fit round it at the same time unless someone didn't want to move out of their seat!
Janet, Burscough
Date of stay: 27th July 2018
One of the best lodges that we have stayed in which could only be improved with a TV in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms? Slight smell of drains in the main bathroom when we arrived, which improved once maintenance crew used bleach to clear. The information folder in our lodge had the wrong instructions for all the electrical appliances so it took a while to work out how to use the cooker and hob on our first night!
Kate, Leeds
Date of stay: 27th July 2018
Excellent - black out blinds would have been a great addition.
Laura, Birmingham
Date of stay: 23rd July 2018

Nice lodge ,lovely position.No shelves or cupboards in bathroom! we used the sauna for storage. We liked the touch lamps and clock/radio.King size bed was wonderful. The lamps came on by themselves sometimes in the night! A smaller fry pan would have been good.
The outside table was filthy .

The lodge gave us everything we needed to relax. It's position in the forest so we could enjoy the view. Everything we needed was provided but most importantly we were really warm and comfortable when the weather was cold.
Linda, Oxford
Date of stay: 13th April 2018
The lodge was of a good size although the kitchen was a bit tight for the 9 of us and a slip mat in shower would have come in handy.

Sarah, Aylesbury
Date of stay: 19th March 2018
The lodge we stayed in could not have been nicer. The only thing I would say is we had a 1 bed lodge and it was equipped for about 6 people. And the sofa was not the comfiest but the majority of the time we were either outside enjoying and exploring the local area or in the sauna warming up after being out in the snow!
Nicki, Walsall

Aron, Doncaster
Date of stay: 15th January 2018
For a 3 bed with 6 adults and a toddler I don't there wasn't enough comfy seating in the lounge area. It would benefit from some foot stools to put feet up and maybe some bean bags for kids. TV in main bedroom had a very poor signal due to the arial cable we think but that's a small issue to resolve. The TV in the bathroom was a great bonus!
However, just minor suggestions, we had a wonderful time.
Michelle, Chesterfield

Date of stay: 11th December 2017
Cannot fault lodge at all, brilliant. Got home one day the water pipe outside had burst, called reception, fixed in 10 mins, brilliant. Best lodge I've stayed in. As mentioned facilities/activities are lacking a bit compared to other similar resorts. Gym & spa should be included in break. Maybe more kids activities, although we visited in December out of season, so possibly there would be more in summer? Not complaining though, was a great holiday.
Katie, Doncaster

Caroline, Derby
Date of stay: 10th November 2017
Stayed in one of the new luxury cabins on the glade. It was lovely such a nice area with just a few cabins on. Was very clean and well set out. Loved the bathroom through double doors from the bedroom with its own tv, double shower and a sauna. Very upmarket furnishings and outdoor furniture and with a ps4 and huge tv. We had a really relaxing short break. Best of all with this cabin it had its own dedicated wifi so I could skype with my family as the phones don't work here and upload pictures of our day. Went swimming once and travelled the area on one day. Weather was awful but the place was clean, staff were always smiling and the place was warm and welcoming.

Fab holiday
Sara, London
Date of stay: 3rd November 2017
Lovely chalet. We thought it was very good value for money. A couple of thoughts to make it even better:
- cooking knives could be sharper
- bedside lamps came on unexpectedly in the middle of the night or very early morning throughout the bedrooms. Very odd and obviously disturbing so we had to unplug them at night. If they are on some sort of timer that should be switched off.
- Maybe some plastic cups/plates for kids.
Samantha, York

The only recommendation we all would like to make is that when the cabin is hired to all ladies we all require a Robe & slippers not just two that are offered. And a change of towels would help in the winter months.
Robert, Darlington
Date of stay: 13th October 2017
Only thing I would say is that the bedrooms are a bit on the small side but then you don't spend all your time in them.

Overall an excellent base to explore Derbyshire and the park had everything you might want. However, despite indicating there was free WiFi this was very poor and intermittent and the Free View TV reception was non-existent, at least in lodge 7.

Definitely didn't spoil the holiday and you could certainly argue it was a benefit everyone in the family not having phone or internet access

Just returned from our week at Darwin Forest for February half term, which was fabulous. We stayed in a Chatsworth Elite 2 Bedroom lodge which was warm and toasty even though there were blizzard conditions outside for our first couple of days. From our welcome at Reception, to the staff at Evolution, and those running the activities we booked for our 8-year old (archery and waterwalkerz), everyone was friendly and helpful. There's plenty to do in the area, and we will definitely return. Thanks!!

We had an exceptional time celebrating my husbands 50th birthday. Only slight disappointment was that I did not notice the automatically added holiday insurance until it was too late to cancel; as I'd book 3 cabins it really added up. Hightlights need to check paperwork immediately it arrives rather than just prior to paying balance. Would suggest that staff mention this a time of booking would be really helpful.
Annette, Nottingham

The cabin was lovely, spacious and modern. The only thing I would have liked would have been a larger more comfortable bed, however that might just be me being overly picky since I am used to the one I have at home :)
Apart from that it had all the basic items required to be fully self sufficient.
The Hot Tub was amazing.

This is our second time at these lodges, first time was just excellent, couldn't fault them in any way possible!! But second time very dissapointed, turned up to dirty lodge that definitely hasn't been cleaned or checked before our arrival, as you can imagine, cleaning being the first thing we did which is not what we signed up for, to make it worse we had to make a trip back home cleaning products and a hoover... and the dishwasher is falling to pieces which definitely need replacing.. Apart from that the actual place and the atmosphere and the activities you can do are fantastic! Last year we put a deposit down for the year after without thinking, now we're definitely not too sure..

very clean, the sofa wasn't very comfy, and the internet wasn't great. We as a family watch Netflix and the TV signal in lodge wasn't great, so we tried to watch Netflix in the evenings, sadly this didn't work due to the internet signal, so would be a good idea to upgrade the internet. Also, no phones in the lodge and no phone signal, what does someone do in an emergency?

Lodge was a little on the cramped size but fully functional and very clean. Bed was one of the comfiest we've slept on. Not a lot of drying space though especially as we had swimming, bath and hot tub towels and the shower wasn't particularly powerful.

I have been in a few lodges over the years and this was up to the usual high standard. The only niggle is that there could be a shelf and mirror in the bedroom as a sort of dressing table. This would help people like myself who cannot stand for too long and would appreciate somewhere to sit.

This one bed lodge with sauna and spa bath was excellent. We had all we wanted and the lodge was ready to move into. No making beds or carrying towels etc. It was warm, pleasant and very comfy. The window on the front door needed replacing though (misting in gap of double glazing. On a 5 star site I would have expected this to have been replaced. It did not detract from the overall feel of the place though. A kitchen overlooking the woods with lots of wildlife. A quiet relaxing break (except for the muppets in a nearby lodge, sitting in the hot tub all weekend and having music playing)
Overall we loved it and have booked in June.

Lovely to have all the comforts and space of a cottage on a holiday park. There were 6 adults and 2 children in our party but we never felt cramped.

The weather wasn't really warm enough to sit outside but outdoor patio seating was there.We didn't have or want a hot tub but the lodges either side of us did. The natural wooden screen between the lodges doesn't give much privacy.
There is ample parking outside each lodge which was great.

It was our first visit to the park which was pleasant and relaxing. There's something for everybody to enjoy however we chose to spend most of our break relaxing in the hot tub. All staff on site were friendly and very approachable. The only advice to any new comer would be to book your spa treatments in advance to avoid disappointment.

We were very impressed with the log cabin which was spacious, clean and very well equipped. Even the towels were soft and fluffy. The lobby is perfect for storing dirty boots , wet clothes and bikes or towelling down the dog. Cleaning equipment is provided and there is a clothes airer.
There are two bathrooms in the Haddon Classic and this makes such a difference. The two showers, bath and two toilets are in spacious rooms and spotlessly clean .There are two large tables, one indoors and one on the verandah, both with six chairs.
There is plenty of storage and hooks for coats or towels.
The beds are comfortable as is the settee and chairs. A very comfortable lodge.

The lodge was brilliant very modern and new with excellent facilities. We would have loved a hot tub but unfortunately non were available when we booked think you need to book early for these we booked in March for August and they were non left for a 8 bed lodge.

Barbecues are available for hire which is great there is a local farm shop down the road which sell lovely farm fresh burgers and sausages.

I definitely would not hesitate to stay here again. The kids loved it !!!!!

The only area that I feel could be improved within the cabins is the mattresses. They are rather firm resulting in pins and needles and sleeping (me) sleeping on the comfortable sofas.

This was our fourth visit to Darwin Forest and for the first time the cleanliness was lacking with visible stains and dirty patches on the lounge carpet and upholstery and dust that had been missed on the changeover clean. The remainder of the lodge maintained the usual high standards.

A very clean lodge. Our daughter is a coeliac and I usually need to clean most things before we start. But not on this occasion. Well done.I would recommend Darwin Forest. We wanted a peaceful lodge as we have young children and this is what we had.
There was plenty to do and yet this was at a distance from the lodges which was great.
We would stay here again.

This was our 3rd time staying at darwin forest. We love it and it is very family orientated. If we are not holidaying abroad then we love to visit Darwin. The only disappointed for us is we travel in a family of 7 and always book 2 weeks and have never been able to book accommodation with a hot tub, even when booking a year in advance.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay but I had two 14yearold girls with us who needed to be supervised to use the swimming pool and they were not allowed to use the gym. Both girls can swim and have [asses for using our local gym they did not enjoy me having to go to the pool with them nor did I. For this reason I will not be back for a holiday.

Had a great time but when we chose a pet free accommodation we didn't expect the lodges actually opposite us to all have dogs with them. Not exactly what we thought to be pet free, thought pet free area would mean that and there would be an actual separate area to have pets not opposite lodges which are meant to be pet free.

Lodge too warm when we arrived so turned off all the heaters which had been left switched on. Would prefer curtains in the bedrooms as the blinds let in the light.
Ilona
Date of stay: 5th June 2015
The cabin was spacious and comfortable, the cabins we've stayed in elsewhere were much smaller so it did feel almost like being in a bungalow in comparison. The bathroom was lovely and the shower not too bad, had better but definitely had worse! I wouldn't say the kitchen was brilliantly equipped - (no breadboard, but there was a bread knife!) but it was adequate. The thing I didn't like was how open the cabin was to the road, there are huge windows and anyone can see in. I prefer a bit more privacy. Having the decking out on the road as well just felt too exposed. Very expensive for what it was as well, definitely not value for money IMO.

We spent a short break here at Easter and were extremely impressed. The site has undergone (and still is) some major improvements (inc a soft play area and restaurant). We used it for a base for cycling and were not disappointed. There is even a cycle route on site through the forest which is good fun. The teenagers liked to visit the gym, and the younger children the pool. Us Mum's used the spa facility which was also a nice relaxation. Only slight downside is that the pool is also used by the locals for aqua aerobics which means there is very little swimming space, but if you check the times you can avoid this if a problem. The lodges are fantastic! Very clean and modern. My father-in-law thought they were amazing. The hot tub was also well used. Looking forward to visiting again.

Really liked this lodge it was spacious and in a great spot (no 80) It had everything we needed and it was very clean. We would definitely go again.
The only thing I can say which I forgot to mention while there, was that the grill puthered with smoke when in use so we had to revert to frying our breakfast.
Also the cushion on the sofa on the right as you walk in has sunk in, (not sure about the sofa's) not very comfy.

Everything you need and more. Dishwasher tabs and washing up liquid, a useful touch. We successfully made a full Christmas dinner without falling over each other or running out of dishes.

The cabin was modern, clean and tidy, we had a hot tub which was also very nice, warm & well maintained. It was great to have parking right outside the cabin when you have a family & lots of presents! The only downside for us was the phone situation, there is no phone signal without difficulty or wandering around the park & normally this would not bother me but being Christmas we would've liked to be able to speak with other family members. Perhaps a phone in the cabin with a standard charge would be a good idea.
Richard, Cheltenham
Date of stay: 19th December 2014
The lodge was beautiful! It was extremely well kitted out with everything we needed: we even managed to cook a full Christmas dinner! It was magical to have our own sauna and whirlpool bath in our lodge. The only thing we would have loved to have had was a real/gas fire to curl up in front of because the electric ones aren't quite the same but we understood this was probably for fire safety/gas fitting reasons.

Overall was very good however there was always a smell of urine around the carpet and sofa area. We did put one of the spare duvet down so our baby could play on the floor. The smell could of been from dogs ad we did stay in the lodge that allows animals, and we did bring our own spaniel. We also did keep catching our feet on the screws that where sticking out of the roof were the carpet meets the kitchen.

We enjoyed our holiday as a family and it was made more enjoyable by the clean lodges which were of the highest quality. We have travelled to many holiday parks in the UK and without being baised in any way this is a beautiful and the best park we have visited.
Keep up the good work

Our second time at Darwin and our fourth at ine of this company's sites.

It's not cheap but you do get quality in return for your money. The best lodges we have stayed in. Even in peak times the site feels quiet.

Plenty of days out locally, the amenities on site are good and we like the setting.

Richard, London
Date of stay: 15th August 2014
No problems with our accommodation. Comfortable for a couple with two small children. This particular lodge was at the top end of the site which makes the walk to the swimming/pub/soft play etc. just enough that scooters or cycles make a worthwhile difference and stop you taking the car (which you can do).
Harry, Kent

Accomodatin was spotless and this was not the most expensive of the many beautifully set lodges at Darwin Forest. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday despite the May Bank down-pours and the site being so close to Bakewell and chatsworth House has tons to offer. On our more relaxed days the pool, games rooms and forest fitness trail were all great. Mobile reception was terrible.....another bonus!

Everything was sparkling clean, need to give the cleaners a big bonus! We had everything to make our stay easy including dish washer tablets which we had forgotten! The beds were like clouds, the carpets were lovely. Furniture was very contemporary and to our taste. Being young adults we were shocked at how much value for our money we got as we weren't expecting a lot for how much we paid. It was an absolutely lovely, luxurious break for my friends and I. We are looking forward to returning for another special occasion.

Booked the Haddon Classic Spa 3. On arriving at lodge 106 we were pleasantly surprised. It was luxurious, spacious and very clean. With the two bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, the open planned kitchen, dining and lounge, it was extremely comfortable, a real home from home. Everything we would need for the weekend was there, even down to the dish washer tablets, tea towels, washing up liquid, a sponge for wasting up and cloths for wiping down the surfaces. An iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner, soap and toilet paper in the bathrooms. The list goes on...
Another outstanding feature was the hot tub - wow! This was a luxury for which we paid for, but a definite must have!
Sistah Harmony - our first reunion - looking forward to the second...

A lovely place to relax
Adam
What can I say, beautiful cabin, spotlessly clean everywhere, naturally helpful and engaged staff, my 3 year old loved the swimming pool, we spent nearly two hours there every day and then nipped over to the pub for a pot swim drink, chatted with the staff who couldn’t have been more welcoming. The food at the pub was lovely, and sitting in the conservatory for date night was a real treat. Trips to Matlock Bath and Chatsworth were easy and enjoyable. The woodland setting and overall facilities really lived up to our expectations and more. We had a fantastic holiday despite awful weather. We will be back soon!
Matthew
Really enjoyed ourselves, kids loved going out on bikes, maybe a bit of work on the forest trails to make them more accessible in wetter weather? Swimming pool was fab and we used it every day. Shop was reasonably priced even though it had a captive audience and staff were friendly, my two boys(6and 9) were sent regularly and always cam back with the goods! Maybe the sports field needs turning into an all weather surface, sadly we couldn’t do any football or cricket as planned because of the wetness, this would have been a useful pastime. All in all good. Enjoyed popping into Matlock, River Cafe was amazing. Good holiday and would definitely return.
Eileen
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to our friends, also welook forward to our next visit

Our first visit and enjoyed the surroundings and the lodges we not crowded so it was very peaceful.

excellent place very well maintained cabins are superb will be back later this year well done everybody

The only downside for me was the pub did not have sky sports, for the money you pay I would of expected it to have had it. However the lodge/site was fantastic and we are booking again for next year
Simon
Great location, shame you can’t guarantee the weather!
Emma
Lovely place to go for a relaxing break brilliant for all, staff were extremely friendly and helpful will be going back again.
