Thank you so much and again BRAVO to the management team and owners on developing such a wonderful complex. - Peter Battershill

A beautiful place to take your family! Really enjoyed our time there and we will definitely be going again. We stayed in dovedale and it was spotless. We went during corona virus and it was a safe place to go. Social distancing regulations were all in place. Would definitely recommend going! - Sonia Esmaeily

Amazing property and location. Staff were very helpful. – Stephen Jones


The cottages at Darwin Lake are spacious and just a really nice place to be, the grounds are peaceful and it is a bonus to have a beautiful lake and woodlands. – Photographer Phil Sproson


Super modern, clean and comfortable cottages. We stayed in 3 cottages for 4 families which worked brilliantly. Lots of space to BBQ and play football. Beautiful area. Really welcoming hosts. We've already booked for next year! – Ros Cowell


Darwin lake holiday complex is 4 star luxury accommodation with all facilities at hand.
The cottages are fully equipped and finished to the highest standard.
We stayed for a four night stay and had a wonderful time. 
It was home away from home. 
I can only highly recommend it to anyone contemplating a visit to the area.
We had a fabulous stay and can't wait to return. - Glynn Ennis


What a Gem. This place is amazing. A collection of beautifully designed cottages hugging the shore of Darwin Lake. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Peveril, a stunning tastefully decorated, immaculately clean and well equipped cottage, with a view of the lake. Looking forward to returning. Hopefully for longer next time. I can't recommend it highly enough.– Amanda T

Great stay in a wonderful location. House clean and tidy and easy to find. Would stay again - Air BnB - Helen

My partner and I stayed here and can highly recommend the place. The lake is stunning and there is a walking trail around it through the woods. The cottage was very well equipped with cooking utensils, tvs in each room, DVD player, DAB radio and the bathrooms were very clean - Trip Advisor KN910

Dovedale is a wonderfully equipped cottage, home from home, located in the picturesque and quiet location of Darwin Lake. The photos online don't do it justice It surpassed our expectations. Everything was clean and kitchen well kitted out. Bedrooms are not huge but compact, cosy and very comfortable. Two double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms both with walk in showers. One shower was not draining properly which was a pain but not enough inconvenience to mark down from a 5* rating. One double bedroom had a TV too - a nice touch! The main TV has Netflix for those rainy days in. We were lucky with the weather and though we were out mostly, our time at the cottage was truly enjoyable. There was nothing that was lacking. Couldn't have asked for more. Even wap worked fine though we avoided those distractions as much as possible. Parking outside was very convenient too. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to disconnect from a mad pace of life and readjust themselves with nature and serenity. A truly memorable holiday. Thank you - Trip Advisor Sabiha A

Lovely place with hassle free checking in and out. Really suited us with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom (wet room) for my father just post knee operation - Air BnB Annemarie
