English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


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

Formerly the impressive gatehouse to Donington Hall, The Lodge is a unique Grade II listed, detached Tudor-style house set within ½ an acre of matured landscaped gardens with double electric gates. Retaining much of its original charm and character, The Lodge has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated to a high standard. Relax in one of the two living rooms with comfy sofas and a crackling open fire, enjoy a leisurely meal with family and friends around the large dining table seating eight guests, or even in the beautifully landscaped grounds. The property spans over three different levels and offers spacious accommodation with stunning interior design. Four double bedrooms are split over two floors with the master having a unique shower room that has to be seen! The bespoke designed kitchen with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams is a great place to cook and chat.
It is set within an idyllic country location, with adjoining woodlands to the rear which offer privacy and seclusion. Stone walls surround the property and a large private garden with Victorian wrought iron railings and mature trees enhance the grounds.
You will not be stuck for things to do if you can drag yourself away from this stunning home, as the National Trust Calke Abbey, a historic house within a 600-acre nature reserve, is close by, along with Staunton Harold Reservoir, with its yacht club and children’s activity play area. The largest inland marina in Europe is close by at Willington Mercia House, not to mention Donington Race Track, which houses the Grand Prix Collection in the museum and hosts major motor cycling and racing events, as well as the yearly Download Festival. Ideally situated on the edge of The National Forest, you are given access to a wealth of beautiful countryside suitable for walking, bird watching and cycling. Travel a little further and you are in the Peak District, with Chatsworth House and the historic towns of Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, where there is a plethora of things for people of all ages to enjoy. Shop 2 miles, hotel bar and restaurant ½ mile.

    Enjoyed our stay very much, very quirky property! Loved all the log fires, the space and the quiet. It was perfect for our family reunion, in terms of location and facilities offered. Very popular with the younger members of the family who are agitating to come back! Fantastic for larger groups to get together and have fun together, an excellent house for games of hide and seek! Highly recommended.

    Great place for a family weekend. One needs to know how to cook with an AGA before going. Very comfortable. Good parking. Private. Overall, family very pleased.
