Landal Darwin Forest is part of our Go Active Breaks Collection, nestled in stunning woodland close to Matlock and Bakewell on the edge of Derbyshire’s breath-taking Peak District. Proud winner of multiple awards, including the Best in Britain award, this top park blends fantastic facilities and stunning woodland surroundings – ideal for spending quality family time entirely at your own pace. Go as fast or as slow as you like! From tennis, mini-golf, bodyzorbing, archery, and SeaScooters, to abundant footpaths and cycling trails that crisscross throughout the park; there’s something that all ages can enjoy! Younger children love Little Monkeys indoor play centre with its multiple levels of fun, while the Activity Den hosts pool tables, air hockey and an arcade games room ideal for older kids. The Trim Trak obstacle course, orienteering and the simple pleasures of a woodland walk are hits with the whole family, alternatively Evolution Health and Fitness offers a heated indoor swimming pool, spa area and gym with fitness studio together with pampering beauty therapies if you really want to indulge yourself.
Venturing out of the resort puts the very best of the Peak District right at your feet. Alton Towers offers adrenaline thrills whilst Chatsworth House is perfect for an afternoon stroll; both are among the wealth of family attractions nearby. There’s plenty of natural and scenic splendour to discover too; take a walk along the picturesque Monsal Trail, ride a cable car up the Heights of Abraham and take in the stunning views from the top before exploring the old underground caverns to learn their rich story, or hike up the famous Mam Tor and Bamford Edge.
