    Were just back from Darwin forest and really had a good time. The cabins were lovely and clean with everything inside for your stay. It's a brilliant place for children with lots to do. Would definitely recommend.

    A good standard of accommodation. Good facilities. The pool is good. The soft play is good. The pub/restaurant is fine. A good spot for a break. The area is interesting and Matlock is very close. Chesterfield is within easy distance so shopping is OK.

    I think there is a lake at Darwin Forest but when we stayed it was fenced off. I’m sure if you contact them direct they will answer your question

    No canopies on current lodges but they are building an exclusive development so ask reception when these will be open
