    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.

    "Our review reflects our stay being made very uncomfortable due to the fact the Lodge was invaded by hundreds of dead/alive lady birds, I mean hundreds! despite reporting to reception and promised a cleaner nobody came. It was obvious by the numerous dead lady birds that this was an ongoing problem. This left us to vacuum up EVERY DAY and this is not what you go away for, this did not keep the ladybirds under control, they were even found in the bedding, all drinks had to be covered Also there was a pair of underpants visibly left under a dressing table, two loaves of bread and other items of food left in a kitchen cupboard which beggars the question about the standard of cleaning here. Also there was no information pack i.e for the alarm, television pin."

    "Stunning home and gardens, easy to find and well furnished. Helpful hotel staff and easy check in and out. Wifi and internet access was limited and at some times did not work at all, which affected watching films or TV. I would perhaps have a DVD player for times the internet drops out as at points we couldn't watch anything or have music on. The decoration is beautiful and the house is warm, inviting and comfortable."

    "We stayed at the lodge for a 60th birthday weekend. Upon arrival the lodge was freezing and there was no logs to start a fire and it did state on our email there should be enough logs for our whole stay. The central heating also didn't work. We called the help number and someone came to try to work the heating. Still didnt work ans promised he would be back in the morning with logs as we have brought some by this point. No one turned up. We called again and again. Finally the manager turned up at 5pm with logs but still couldn't get the heating on. Thr heating finally. Came on during the night and turned off in the morning. There was also not adequate kitchen items. Lady bird and fly infestation in the master bedroom. Not very clean as loads of large cobwebs everywhere. Also Netflix didn't work as it said too many people was already using it."
