Darwin Forest is close to the lovely towns of Matlock, Matlock Bath and Bakewell, and is only a short drive from the historic country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.  Or for a perfect family walk, make sure you visit the stunning area of Dovedale, one of the best loved beauty spots in the Peak District National Park, and indeed one of the most visited natural sites in Britain.
