If you have already booked a holiday with us and are due to travel in the next couple of months, please refer to our COVID-19 Page or the FAQs for how COVID-19 affects your holiday and the options that are available to you. 


The facilities and activities are currently closed but are usually available all year round. Even when travel restrictions are relaxed that allow you to come on holiday to the lodges we anticipate that due to continued Government Restrictions and Guidelines regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and social distancing, that all or some of the facilities may be closed or have limited capacity or opening hours during your holiday. We also anticipate that some or all Activities will be unable to take place or will have reduced capacity. We will update this information as restrictions are lifted and facilities and activities begin to operate again. You should presume that Facilities and Activities are not open unless specified otherwise.  


Guests who book direct via this website can be reassured that they are booking their holiday with an established family business they can trust. If  the park is closed due to COVID-19 and your holiday cannot take place, then you can either receive a full refund, a credit note or amend your booking to a future date. We have also revised our payment terms so balances are now due 4 weeks prior for holidays up until the 31st August and 6 weeks prior for holidays up until the 30th September.  Please see the FAQs for details. 


Landal Darwin Forest in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District is one of the UK's top holiday parks and provides luxury self-catering holiday accommodation. The park was recently named 'Best in Britain' at the 2019 Hoseasons Awards, ‘Best Holiday Park’ at the 2020 Derbyshire & Peak District Awards and is now a finalist in the Visit England Awards for Excellence. 

The Park is family owned and we put customer service at the heart of our business. Our company mission statement is to ‘Delight every guest so they wish to return’. We have ensured that guests have been able to receive full refunds if their holidays have been cancelled due to COVID-19 and we will ensure that this policy remains in place for future bookings. 

We have been welcoming guests to Landal Darwin Forest for over 25 years, many of whom return year after year. We are very proud of our Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and for the hundreds of positive reviews we have received. Our Reevoo score is also a fantastic 9.4 so you can be confident that a holiday in one of our luxury lodges will be remembered for all the right reasons.
