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