Lilac Tree Lodge is in a fabulous location right beside the water. Watch the resident swans and ducks, and kingfishers often visit the end of the pontoon looking for the small fish that inhabit the lake. Oyster catchers nest on the small islands during the spring. Bring along a bat detector during the summer months and hear the Pipistrelles, Noctule and Daubentons bats. Rabbits, deer and foxes are also frequent visitors to the lakeside and surrounding fields.

This spacious lodge has three large bedrooms giving two kings, and a twin room and all bedrooms feature Freeview TVs with radio. There are two bathrooms; a family bathroom with shower over bath and an en-suite with shower cubicle to the master bedroom. You have a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area flooded with light, and French doors open onto the veranda with the fantastic pontoon to enjoy whether it be eating alfresco or sunbathing on the zero gravity sunloungers.

Nestled in the award-winning largest inland marina in Europe, this really is the perfect base to explore all that the local area has to offer. Why not take advantage of the Boardwalk, a promenade of six boutique retailers, centred around a fabulous two storey bar and restaurant. From here you front onto a raised wooden walkway offering terrific views of the water, boats, and wildlife. You will also discover a sensory garden at the end of the Boardwalk to sit and relax and watch the world go by.

Close by Findern is a lovely village situated about six miles west of Derby. The village green is overlooked by All Saints Parish Church where a carved semi-circular stone or ’tympanum’ discovered when the previous Norman Church was demolished in 1862, is preserved. There are lovely walks in the area and it is a great base to explore the Peak District with its market towns of Bakewell and Ashbourne, as well as its many pretty villages.
