“We had such a relaxed amazing weekend”

We used Donington Den as a weekend reunion getaway for girl friends who lives all over the UK. Catryn and Ivan was very kind and forthcoming. The house was spotless and well equipped. The village of Melbourne is quint and clean and has sweet little shops, pubs and restaurants. We chose to stay in most of the time thought as the house was comfortable and cozy.
I would definitely recommend this house for a weekend getaway in the countryside! We wished we could stay longer than a weekend!

“Fab Holiday Base For East Mids Attractions”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I stayed here in April with my husband and daughter, whilst we were waiting to move into our new home, and we had a lovely relaxing 5 days. The position in Melbourne is just perfect for so many things in the East Mids from Conkers, Sherwood Forrest, East Mids Airport (less than 10 mins away), Alton Towers, and any of the cities of this region, as it is within 10 minutes of the M1, but in a pretty Midlands town A really friendly welcome from the owners, who gave us the tour, and then left us to it for the length of the stay, but as they weren't far away, could have been called upon if we had any questions. The bunglaow is fully kitted out with all of the things you need for a self catering holiday, so no need to be dragging around all of your kitchen bits and pieces. The welcome pack included cereeal, milk, tea and coffee and biscuits, and a few drinks, enough to get you started for your holiday. I can thoroughly recommend this well priced holiday home, and will be suggesting it to friends who come to the region. :o)
