Rosemary Lodge is a Nordic style lodge sleeping 4 people and set in a green and tranquil lakeside area within the 74-acre Mercia Marina with its range of fantastic facilities. Nestled in this secluded part of the Marina with lodges sited around a picturesque lake, Rosemary Lodge has its own unique atmosphere. The owners have combined neutral tones and natural textures to give you a truly restful experience. Relax on the sofas and take in the views from the large French doors or step outside onto the spacious veranda and enjoy your morning coffee while watching the birdlife.
The lodge comprises a high specification fully equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area provides plenty of space for leisurely meals. There are two good sized bedrooms; one with a kingsize bed and private en-suite and a twin room also with en-suite.
The largest inland marina in Europe, Mercia Marina has a host of facilities onsite within a few minutes’ walk of the lodge. These include cafes, restaurants, a deli, and a general store. The Boardwalk is a promenade of boutique retailers – clothes and gift shops, a beauty salon, a jewelers and interior design shops centered around the two-story bar and restaurant (go upstairs for the best views). Stroll along the raised wooden walkway to watch the colourful boats and the wildlife, stop for a coffee and cake, or treat yourself to a glass of wine. You’ll also discover nice walks within the Marina grounds with ideal spots to sit, relax and watch the world go by. If you fancy boating along the canal, the Mercia Swan runs trips in summer. The Marina has its own Community Bicycle scheme, which provides bicycles free to use for residents and visitors (bring your own helmet!).
Rosemary Lodge is the perfect base to explore all that the local area has to offer. Close by Willington, Melbourne, Tutbury and Repton are lovely villages, the latter being the capital of the ancient kingdom of Mercia. If you like to explore on foot, there are interesting walks including the Trent and Mersey Canal with its towpath and locks. We provide for your use OS Explorer maps and maps of circular walks in the local area including the National Forest. It’s a great base to explore the Peak District too, the market towns of Bakewell, Belper and Ashbourne, the world-famous Potteries including Denby Pottery Village and the many nearby National Trust properties. For wildlife lovers, the Willlington Wetlands nature reserve is just the other side of the village and is home to newly introduced beavers (and their kits, born in 2021) as well as many species of birds. At Mercia Marina itself, you may see herons, geese, ducks, swans, grebes, kingfishers, oystercatchers, goldfinches, bullfinches and long tailed tits.
Once your booking is confirmed, you will receive our digital visitor guide which gives detailed information about Mercia Marina shops and eateries (visitors receive a discount on purchases), local activities and places to visit.
