Luxury Holiday Parks in Somerset with Darwin Escapes

Culinary delights, famous attractions and two of the best holiday parks in Somerset await you.

If you are searching for some of the best holiday parks in Somerset, then look no further than Darwin Escapes. We have two of the most exceptional resorts in the rural South West County, one of which was awarded the Hoseasons Best in Britain Diamond Award 2014.

Somerset, a county full of rolling hills, cider and famous cheese is the ideal destination to become an owner or to take a well-deserved holiday break. With an array of attractions and places to visit, including Wells Cathedral, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury and the beautiful Mendip Hills, it comes as no surprise to hear that Somerset attracted 1.3 million overseas visits during 2013.


Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa

Our luxury holiday parks in Somerset are all newly developed and created to the highest of standards. We have the award-winning park of the year Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa nestled in the Mendip Hills which was named the ‘Best in Britain’ by Hoseasons in 2014.

Cheddar Woods underwent an extensive redevelopment in 2013 and is designed to cater for customers of varying requirements. If you are on the look out for family holidays in Somerset, then look no further because we have plenty to keep the kids occupied, including an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley, pool tables and adventure play area. We also have a Go Active programme, with various ventures to partake in each day including archery, fencing, snorkelling, body zorbing and aqua aerobics.

For the adults we have a heavily equipped air conditioned gymnasium to take advantage of, as well as the now famous Eden Spa. Our fully trained professionals can help you overcome the stresses and strains of everyday life, with a range of therapies and massages available to revitalise you. There is also a fully stocked bar (with Sky Sports HD coverage) and mouth-watering restaurant with a wide variety of food types available.

New for 2015 Bath Mill Lodge Retreat offers the perfect alternative to a city break in Bath. Located just a few miles from the city of Bath, the resort is perfectly situated to allow our customers to enjoy undisturbed tranquil natural surrounds, without being too far away from the many visitor attractions that Bath has to offer.

We now have extensive facilities including a heavily equipped gymnasium, function room and the Brook Bar and Restaurant which is located on park in a refurbished Mill House, which is over 350 years old.

This truly is one of the best holidays parks in Bath if you are looking to stay close to the city, with our lodges featuring everything you will need on your break in the region. We have one to four bedroom lodges available, with our one bedroom Norland Lodge being ideal accommodation for short stays or overnight business trips to the region.
