Thank you for reviewing Landal Darwin Forest. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed a peaceful weekend stay with us, and our maintenance team managed to fix the faulty oven within the hour for you. With regards to your feedback about the hot tub, I hope you will be delighted to hear that one of the unique features of our new Spinney exclusive lodges are, that they have a canopy over the hot tub area. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Yes. Just phone Darwin Forest reception a few days before you check-in to get your lodge number and then you can order groceries to be delivered to your accommodation. We used Sainsbury's.

"Doesn't seem to be any advantage over location of lodge."
"Go for a lodge at top of site much quieter"
"Hot tub a must!!!"
"The larger Coppice lodges are newer and have better bathrooms, plus ensuite and a hot tub."
"The more expensive SPA rooms are spread out more so more privacy!"
