“Fantastic trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2016 via mobile

Loved every minute of our break! The lodge was fantastic, so clean and was a brilliant size for 2 adults and our 9 month old baby. The pool although not huge was brilliant as there was never anyone in it! The small indoor play area was great for what we needed and the outdoor one was great too. We also ordered pizzas for take away and they were brilliant too! Cannot wait to go back!

We have been to many short breaks however this is the first one we you can truly start your holiday, with simple things that mean a lot from tea towels to washing liquid as we are all aware the small touches mean a lot. On arrival we where early however having taken my number the phoned and we were in the lodge well before the recognised start time, as the accommodation had a sauna spa bath it was a pleasant surprise to be supplied with more than enough towels to make good use of the facilities,clean smart and well cared for would highly recommend.

Family of 11 booked 2 lodges, 62 and 65, great spot at the top of the park. Both with beautiful hot tubs which had lots of use and enjoyment! Had our shopping delivered directly to the lodge an hour after arrival (asda)
Lodge well equipped, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, cloths and tea towels provided. One double and 2 twin bedrooms with room in the double for our own travel cot!
Swimming pool thoroughly enjoyed twice during our stay with the changing facilities ample and clean.
Beautiful meal in the coach house, with some coeliac and others picky in our party nothing at all was too much trouble for them! Great selection of wines and food very nice, I enjoyed the posh mushrooms on toast followed by the jerk chicken.
Hot tub checked twice daily by staff.
Great weekend, planning to come next year at least once and can't wait!

Me and my partner stayed here from 31st October til 4th November and have to say we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in lodge number 63 which has a hot tub, which is round the back and completely private which was really good. The kitchen was good, very modern with everything you need such as a fridge, little freezer, oven, electric hob, microwave... and you get tea and coffee on arrival. The bed was very comfy and the sauna in the bathroom was the icing on the cake. Only negative is that the shower is not very powerful at all and you either have to have it lukewarm or boiling hot so you can't even stand in it. Overall we had the most amazing stay and we really didn't want to leave. Just what we needed just the 2 of us away from work and the outside world. Also, we went to the coach house for a meal on the Thursday for my partners birthday (steak night) and the steaks we had were amazing. Would definitely recommend!!

We rented 2 lodges Friday to Monday both had dogs teenage boys, younger girls and a couple with baby.
Having stayed before at Darwin Forest we were disappointed by the site.
The walk for the dogs was small, and not long enough, we expected the same sort of length as Darwin Forest. No trails like Darwin.
Girls enjoyed the park and riding on their bikes, but it is hilly. The children's area is nice, and one of the teenagers did the archery, £12 an hour pp.
The lodges have everything you needed and were warm and clean, plenty of towels etc but had lights on all the times because they are dark.
We did walk and take the kids bike to pick up the Tissington trail, but be aware you have to cross a very busy corner, then there is a footpath by the side of the road for 50 yards, then it is road walking with some dangerous bends. It is a good hilly walk. If the site was linked it would be excellent.
