Introducing Darwin Duck

Come and Meet the Flock…

Introducing our new Darwin Ducks! The great British public have spoken and helped us choose the names for our latest paddling of Darwin Ducks.

Darwin Duck has spread his wings and dropped his offspring off at our various luxury holiday resorts across the UK.

Big Daddy Darwin Duck asked each of his paddling to pick their preferred holiday destination based on their unique characters and preferences to ensure that they would be staying at a holiday park which is absolutely perfect for them, safe in the knowledge that they would be in good hands at any of the locations within the Darwin Escapes portfolio.

So without further ado, let us introduce you to Darwin Duck and his Flock…


Bath Mill

The Bath Mill duck adores luxury and chic style but enjoys the great outdoors. She loves meandering through Newton Brook shaded by gorgeous trees on a hot sunny day.

Likes: Artisan bread, Cloudy lemonade.


Beach Cove

This duck is a laid-back romantic. You’ll often find him by the quirky beach huts writing beautiful poetry or indulging in a spot of fishing.

Likes: The sound of the waves, Rom com movies.


Canterbury Reach

Rupert has plenty of tales to tell and has a passion for literature. You’ll often find him lying back on our gorgeous grounds with a book in his webbed hand.

Likes: Reading short tales, visiting historic attractions.


Cheddar Woods

As the ultimate family duck, the Cheddar Woods mascot loves to keep active. Whether it’s swimming, bowling, golf or a long walk up the Gorge – this wholesome duck loves it all.

Likes: Cheddar cheese, The Glastonbury festival.



Zen would be this duck’s middle name – if she had one! She has found inner peace with the outstanding natural beauty of Hawkchurch and always has a relaxed smile on her beak.

Likes: Aromatherapy, Hydrotherapy pools.


Keswick Reach

This particular Duck has a penchant for Sci-Fi & spends hours snuggled up by the log fire in his luxury lodge watching Star Wars. When he’s not watching TV, he is to be found exploring the beautiful countryside walking routes with his dog…Chewie.

Likes: Star Wars, Dog walking.


Kilnwick Percy Resort

Rosie is a keen golfer and spends hours improving her handicap on our championship 18 hole golf course. After a busy day on the greens, Rosie loves nothing more than taking advantage of the wide spa treatment offering available on-site.

Likes: Golf, Spa Days.


Mullion Cove

The Mullion Cove Duck loves to try new things, see new places and make new friends all in a relaxing environment. There’s nothing this duck loves more than to explore the Lizard Peninsula and come home to a nice warm bubble bath to relax his wings.

Likes: Hot tubs, Hiking.


New Pines

The New Pines duck is an adventurous soul and loves learning new skills such as football, tennis and even bodyzorbing. One minute he’ll be taking a dip in the pool and the next he’ll be enjoying the entertainment in the club house.

Likes: Karaoke, Charlie Bear.


Norfolk Woods

Delia loves nothing more than taking advantage of the modern self catering facilities in the group accommodation at Norfolk Woods to prepare sumptuous culinary delights for the whole flock of Darwin Ducks.

Likes: Cooking, Family time.


Piran Meadows

This duck is just a big kid! We’re always seeing her taking part in our Go Active programme or playing tennis against our guests (she lets everyone win – or so she says!). But sometimes she’ll treat herself to a spa treatment if she wants to take it easy.

Likes: Being competitive, Surfing.



Ever the comedian, the Sandymouth duck loves to have a laugh with the best of them. He even has his own stand-up show in the on-park clubhouse. This duck is as happy in a teashop in the nearby town of Bude as he is playing a game of bingo.

Likes: Cornish pasties, Pub quizzes.



Deedee is so laid back that she is almost vertical. She loves nothing more than sitting back in her 5 star holiday home & admiring the unrivaled coastal views. Also enjoys gentle strolls along the nearby beach or in the surrounding countryside.

Likes: Coastal Views, Scenic walks.


Swanage Bay View

Fossie is a Duck who likes to remain on the go and is regularly to be found taking part in the many adrenalin fuelled activities which are available at Swanage Bay View. Also enjoys taking advantage of the nearby beach whenever she feels like having a paddle.

Likes: Paddling, Adrenalin fuelled activities.


Talacre Beach

As a more traditional duck, the Talacre Beach mascot enjoys the classic family-friendly ‘British Seaside’ holiday. He’s an easy-going duck with an appetite for fun – think family entertainment, beach frisbee and climbing Snowdon!

Likes: Ice cream, Castles (both real and sand).


Thanet Well

Thanet Well’s duck is a self-confessed foodie – which is perfect as our Lake District site is near lots of lovely cafes and restaurants using fresh local produce. This duck indulges in a quiet life surrounded by spectacular scenery and an abundance of wildlife.

Likes: Grasmere gingerbread, Lake swimming.


Tilford Woods

This duck should have been born a chameleon, as she gets on with everyone! One day she could be hiking across the tranquil countryside and the next she may be riding Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe Park. Fun-filled or chilled out – the Tilford Woods duck is ready for anything.

Likes: Saunas, Seeing her friends at Birdworld.


Wareham Forest

Mulberry is very much an aquatic Duck, who loves water and everything involving it. Often found setting sail from the nearby Poole Harbour in his own luxury Yacht whenever he finds the energy to tear himself away from the relaxing hot tub located on the decking area of his holiday lodge.

Likes: Yachting, Relaxing in a Hot Tub.


Woodside Coastal

Quirky and individual, the Woodside Coastal Retreat duck loves to learn about history, explore nature, fine food and adventure. She enjoys taking time out for herself in her private hot tub, as well as long bike rides by the coast.

Likes: Organic food, Boats.


Woodside Bay

The Woodside Bay duck keeps himself to himself, so the secluded surrounding of the Isle of Wight lodge retreat is perfect for him. He regularly goes on beautiful woodland walks after a long, luxurious breakfast.

Likes: Reading (his favourite book is Jemima Puddleduck), Fresh sea air.
