Darwin Forest

Immersed in beautiful woodland surroundings, Darwin Forest has become a choice destination for those looking to visit the Peak District.  Their lodges have been awarded 5 stars by Visit England and the park also made the finals of the Visit England Awards for Excellence.

Thanks to years of excellent service and great reviews, the increased exposure enjoyed by Darwin Forest saw their business needs evolve in a number of ways. Due to their desire to deliver an immersive digital experience more reflective of their brand - and a need to bring bookings online - they commissioned Evoluted to design them a new website.

Project Details

With their previous website, Darwin Forest were unable to take bookings online. This meant they were constantly on the phone for booking queries. This was costing unnecessary time and money.

We provided the solution for the client by developing a booking system that brought the whole process online. In addition to showing live availability, this system has been integrated with the Hoseasons API to provide the best possible user experience.

Striking visuals have been used throughout the site to show off the great facilities at Darwin Forest, with the previous table-based site left as a distant memory.

  • Complete overhaul of former table-based site
  • All bookings brought online
  • Integrated with the Hoseasons API for live availability and booking
  • Simplified booking process to assist with ease of booking
  • Ongoing management of automated welcome email ‘journeys’
  • Tailored content and imagery to show off the park
