The Darkling Woods is a lush, green forest near the resting place of Gorlois and encompassing the city of Camelot. It is used by various characters to meet people outside of Camelot during the night and, in particular, Morgana who met Morgause there to discuss their plans (The Tears of Uther Pendragon, The Crystal Cave, The Castle of Fyrien).

Morgana waits for Morgause in the Darkling Woods.

This is also where Merlin met the Great Dragon to ask him to heal Morgana (The Crystal Cave).

Also this is probably the location of the cave where Arthur, Merlin, Gwaine, Gaius and Elyan stayed after Morgana had conquered Camelot (The Coming of Arthur).

There is a possibility that this is where Morgana enchanted Arthur's sword (His Father's Son) and since it is a location near Camelot it is also a possible candidate for Morgana's hovel. Morgana was watching Camelot from the Darkling Woods when she awaited Agravaine's signal to attack the kingdom (The Sword in the Stone: Part One).

When Guinevere turned against Camelot, the night after Elyan died, Gwen went out in to The Darkling Woods to meet Morgana and the two plotted Arthur's downfall.
