Darwin Forest Country Park luxury self-catering holidays are one of the top three holiday parks in England. Set in the beautiful Peak District in the woodland between Matlock and Bakewell, this is a fantastic holiday spot to luxuriate in countryside and visit the surrounding attractions.

The beautiful lodges are enclosed in the peaceful woodland and equipped to every modern luxury you could want on a holiday, with a lovely view. Choose from accommodation sleeping from two to eight people, there's something for every break type from big to intimate. Every lodge comes complete with beautiful view or a veranda to enjoy.

This holiday park has a brilliant number of leisure facilities to keep you entertained on your holiday. There's a fitness centre, including a spa, swimming pool and gym, an indoor play centre for the young kids and an activity den for the older ones. There's also an all-weather tennis court and mini golf for all the family. At Darwin forest you're not relying on the weather to have fun but the great outdoors of woodland walks and cycle trails are always a popular part of this getaway.

Just because a holiday is self catering, doesn't mean you have to cook. Give yourself a break and enjoy a bite to eat at the Explorers Café and Foresters Bar and Restaurant. There's even a takeaway option if you want to eat in the comfort of your own lodge.

While you're here, you are ideally placed to explore the Peak District, one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Bring your bike and your boots and take the landscape at your own pace. Derbyshire is full of world class attractions to visit including the famous Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. There's also the delightful Bakewell village, home of its namesake tart. If you're looking for a thrill head to Gulliver's Kingdom in Matlock or travel to neighbouring Staffordshire for Alton Towers Theme Park.
