Relax in the luxury of this beautiful lodge, with mature gardens and backed by woodland it offers spacious accommodation and a touch of class.

The Lodge is a Grade II listed building set in half an acre of mature landscaped gardens. Formerly the gatehouse to Donington Hall, this detached Tudor-style house is in an idyllic country location with adjoining woodlands to the rear and offers privacy and seclusion. With its own large private garden surrounded by Victorian wrought iron railings and double electric gates, this is the perfect location for a larger family or a group of friends to enjoy a break.
The Lodge is set over three floors and retains many of its original features, including beams, wooden floors and original doors which are complemented by the stunning interior design. Each room has been decorated and furnished with attention to detail creating a luxurious and unusual holiday home. The bespoke fitted kitchen is well-equipped and the vaulted ceiling creates a light and airy ambience, just perfect to prepare the evening meal in. When you are ready to relax there is a spacious living room with an open fire, ideal for those cooler winter nights. Retreat into the second living room with its beams and characterful decor and enjoy a game of chess in front of the glowing wood burner.
There are five bedrooms; each one decorated and furnished in its own unique style. The ground floor bedroom has an unusual wooden kingsize captain’s bunk bed accessed by a ladder. The master bedroom on the second floor is exclusively designed with stairs leading to an en-suite with walk-in shower, marble floor and sloping ceilings.
The large garden is ideal for the children to run around in whilst you relax on the terrace with a glass of wine and admire the beautiful views over the countryside.
When you can tear yourself away from this charming abode there are many places of interest nearby, including the National Trust’s Calke Abbey, a historic house set in a 600-acre nature reserve. The Lodge is situated on the edge of the National Forest where you will find a network of trails and recreational opportunities.
