Just a fabulous place, set in a well managed parkland setting. Facilities are great. Pub/restaurant is very good. There is a games room plus crazy golf and woodland walks. The swimming pool is a very good size and there is a good gym etc.
The lodges are really good in size and spec. They continue to improve the site with more luxurious lodges being placed on site as we were there.
It's well placed for Chatsworth and Crich tram museum. Dales and National park on your doorstep. We love it there!!

We together with our daughter, son in law and our grandsons just recently returned from spending 4 days at this country park, in which we stayed within an elite lodge with hot tub.
The lodge and the facilities within were first class, we were disappointed with the on site restaurant and service within , otherwise the whole experience was excellent, and the weather stayed nice throughout our stay.

Room Tip: All lodges looked at a high standard, but if you want a hot tub go for an elite lodge

We stayed in a classic vogue. Perfect location, it was so serene and peaceful all around, we hardly saw any people!

Check in and check out was easy, fast and to the point. We found our way around easily and found the lodge to be spotlessly clean with plenty of extras. The lodge was warm and inviting and had everything we needed, with a microwave, toaster dishwasher and fridge freezer. There were also cloths, sponges, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, towels, toilet roll and much more.

Wifi was touch and go in the lodge which is probably a good thing as it forces you to put your phone down. We could get a signal in the lodge but only one of us at a time on the network plus it is slow. It worked much better nearer the centre.

The beds were comfy, everything worked well and it was so lovely to see lots of rabbits hopping around the site.

The centre itself was immaculately clean. We enjoyed visiting Evolution and made the most of the free swimming. The shop was well stocked but on the pricey side and we enjoyed the crazy golf.

The entertainment was a bit sparse. It was nice to have a game of pool and play the arcade machines but it would have been nice to have a bit more - like a 2p machine and more popular machines. (A few were out of order whilst we were there).

All in all, it was so relaxing at Darwin Forest, it was simply wonderful and just what the doctor ordered. If you are looking to switch off and relax and enjoy the great outdoors, this is the ideal place.

We had a long weekend away with our grown up children, partners and children to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The lodge was very spacious, clean and well equipped. We had a hot tub which was well maintained, we enjoyed evenings in the hot tub whilst drinking a glass of fizz! We booked some of the activities at Evolution sadly it wasn't until we arrived that we were told there was a weight restriction on some of them, and then another was cancelled without any real explanation as to why. On saying that the ones we did do were well delivered by lovely instructors. Lots of amenities to keep the children busy. All in all a very enjoyable weekend I would highly recommend this park.

Room Tip: Good place to stay you can be as busy or as relaxed as you want to be!
