Falkland Islands: Darwin House

Visit Us

Darwin House

Darwin House a converted farmhouse occupies an isolated spot on the ruggedly beautiful shores of Choiseul Sound, part of a settlement comprising just a handful of buildings. As the nearest accommodation to Mount Pleasant airport, it's a convenient place to begin your Falkland journey.

Built in the typical local style of wood and corrugated iron, the house offers an introduction to the islands' abundant wildlife, with heron, blackish oystercatchers, ruddy-headed and upland geese all frequently seen along the waterfront. Owners Graham and Fiona are friendly and welcoming, and Graham is an enthusiastic and engaging guide who offers battle field tours. Darwin House can also arrange wildlife excursions and fishing. 

There are six comfortable bedrooms with views over picturesque Darwin, Choiseul Sound and Wickham Heights. Facilities include a pub-style honesty bar, dining room (serving home-cooked meals based on familiar British dishes) and separate living room with TV, stereo and lots of books. A particularly pleasant feature is the sunny conservatory which looks out over the bay.
