Landal Darwin Forest is an award-winning holiday park set in 44 acres of woodland, surrounded on all sides by the most beautiful Derbyshire countryside. 

The 137 luxurious self-catering pine lodges sleep from 2-8 people, allowing you to relax and spend quality time in the great outdoors, either for an indulgent break or for an adventure with your family and friends. 

You might feel very tempted to never leave the park, with its swimming pool, steam room, spa, sauna, gym, mini golf course, tennis courts, footpaths, cycling trails, archery zones, café and restaurant, not to mention an adventure playground, huge indoor play centre and games room for the younger members of your group.  But if you do decide to venture further afield, Landal Darwin Forest is the perfect base from which to explore the Peak District National Park.

Landal Darwin Forest Location

The Peak District National Park boasts 555 square miles of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom.  It’s a great place for an activity holiday – whether you love climbing, cycling, riding, para-gliding or running – but it’s also perfect for just strolling and soaking up the views at your own pace. 

Landal 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.
