Situated in a beautiful historic village within minutes of Donington Race Track and East Midlands Airport.
But on the door step of many historic buildings including Melbourne Hall and Gardens and National Trust property Calke Abbey. It is also within the National Forest making it a superb location for walkers and cyclist, or just a car or bus ride to many city centres including Derby, Leicester, Burton on Trent for shopaholics.
Many tourist attractions for kids include 'Conkers' or a trip to an Adventure Farm or Tropical Bird Santuary even Alton Towers is less than 1 hour away.
If you want a chill out break you could book a day at Champneys Springs or just enjoy a duvet day in the newly refurbished Donington Den or just curl up with a book in the lounge overlooking the quaint cottage garden.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

​This is a great house and place to spend a relaxing time. We enjoyed a long stay with kids. Melbourne is a stunning village with places to enjoy walks like The Poole, the path to the river Trent and Stauton Harold reservoir. Children enjoyed to go to Calke Park, Ferrers Center and a number of family fun places like Conkers.... more

A really great little place to be based. Very comfortable beds and terrific facilities all round. Really cosy. Fantastic location near all major Midland road networks and beautiful, quiet little cottage with really sweet sun-trap garden to relax in after a busy day. Would highly recommend. more
