Fantastic break

Lynda 31/05/2021

We had a wonderful 25th wedding anniversary here, it was perfect. We booked an afternoon tea to be delivered to our lodge and it was superb. Everything was presented as beautifully as if we’d gone to the restaurant. They set the table, boiled the kettle and everything that should’ve been warm, was! Perfect.

Amazing lodge

Loved the hot tub steam and sauna, also the Sonos sound system. We were extremely comfortable in the lodge. The windbreak screen to the hot tub area was a useful new addition. It meant that we used the outdoor space much more this holiday. It was great watching the one day cricket from the hot tub.

As above. Very very nice

Only negative was on the last night we noticed the lodge next door had a hammock up outside their lodge, we hunted in our lodge and eventually found it in the wardrobe. Would have been lovely to use it during the really nice weather we had. 

5 *****Our Ruby Wedding Anniversary treat to ourselves, after 40 years of marriage! Very overpriced at the moment (as is everywhere), due to Covid resulting in staycations being so popular. Such a perfectly pretty tranquil setting though. From driving up to the Restaurant for check in, we knew this place would be great. Beautiful drive past the lake, and golf course, grounds are immaculate. Check-in was so welcoming, with a coffee and a delicious shortbread from the lovely restaurant manager. The check-in lady was so friendly and made us feel special. She gave us our key, and all the information we needed for our stay. We drove up to our lodge, through the coded barrier. It was even more amazing than it looked online! .....Just WOW!❤ So private, spacious, spotlessly clean, and high end decor, furniture and fittings. We had Prosecco on ice waiting for us too! 壟 My Husband loved the 4K huge Panasonic Smart tv with Sonos sound throughout the lodge. My 'Wows' were the wonderful quality kitchen equipped with everything you may need. The massive bathroom, with fantastic sauna and shower, amazing silver-coloured free standing bath surrounded with led lights. The huge bed with massive headboard, led light panel around bottom was a bit high to get in and out of... but very posh! And of course, the huge under cover hot tub area, with t.v and outdoor furniture and decking. The ceiling out there had twinkle lights above, led wall panels and the ambience at night in the hot tub was perfectly relaxing and amazing! The views and outdoor area were first class too. We will definitely be back. Darwin 4 is our new "Happy Place!"

This was our second visit to Darwin Lodges. We enjoyed our stay had a very relaxing time. Area gives a good base to venture to other areas. The restaurant offers delivery for lunch and dinner. We had a few small issues but these were dealt with immediately by excellent customer service so this speaks volumes for this accommodation. We will certainly return in the future and have shared this with many friends and family to give this consideration for a holiday. I would like to recommend that when booking you are given a choice to choose the lodge you wish to return to that would be of great advantage to the customer with expectations of their accommodation.

Been going to brayton park for the last 6 years great location best lodges we have stayed in good value and very clean and tidy

Lesley 30/08/2021

We have had many lodge holidays and not one compares to the Darwin. I actually don't think you can ask for anything better.

Jason 16/09/2021

Just spent a very relaxing week here. The lodge and facilities were first class. Although the restaurant was closed during our stay (staffing issues)we could still order food and have it delivered, which was perfect. We were kept informed during our stay, no complaints about the service. I used the well maintained, compact 9 hole golf course. Again, no issues. My wife made use of the spa treatments that can be arranged for your stay. She was very impressed with the service. The Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room were great, as was the Sonos and Smart Tv's throughout the lodge. The local village and shops are only a couple of minutes drive away. Overall an ideal location and facilities for a relaxing break.

Superb lodge, very luxurious. Very helpful staff.

David 22/09/2021

Loved this break. Was so relaxing and quiet. Have already booked again for next year. Only complaint was the sofas in the lodge were quite dirty and a bit smelly. However everything else was pristine

Lynn 22/09/2021

The most fantastic stay in the most beautiful lodge. The lodges are just stunning, and the attention to detail in the design is incredible. The staff are great as is the takeaway food and surrounding gardens. By far the best lodge stay I have ever had and we will be returning without a doubt!
