Darwin Lake is a private well-maintained holiday village built, not of lodges, tents or caravans but of carefully crafted stone built houses centred around the stunning 3 acre lake, with woodland walks, and village green with its own red telephone box. There is also a large stone built Hall for events and celebrations.

At Darwin Lake the cottages are modern and spacious with all home comforts and excellently equipped, many recently updated and all decorated throughout to a high standard. These superbly located and presented holiday houses are 4-star rated by Visit England and the wonderful 10 acre woodland grounds provide the perfect setting for a tranquil, relaxing break amidst an abundance of wildlife. Time to kick back, take stock in a beautiful peaceful place, reflect and recharge.

An ideal base from which to explore the many excellent Peak District tourism facilities: from walking to caving, shopping to eating out in lovely surroundings. Matlock Farm Park is close by and there is Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock, Carsington Water for water sports and outdoor pursuits is a little farther and then on to Alton Towers and its famous theme park rides. Or visit Chatsworth House, one of the best preserved stately homes in Britain, with magnificent grounds; or Haddon Hall and Tissington Hall close by. There is excellent walking, hiking, cycling, fishing and many other outdoor pursuit centres all around the Peak District. Go caving, take a boat ride down in the depths of the Blue John Cavern, or try paragliding, soaring over Stanage Edge or Mam Tor (Mother Mountain).
