What a wonderful place to stay. We spent 5 weeks here in November and December whilst visiting family and friends. The owners were so accommodating and helpful. The bungalow was spotless on our arrival with a widespread amount of kitchen equipment, crockery etc. The addition of Christmas decorations over the festive season was such a thoughtful touch. It was quiet but close to the beautiful village of Melbourne. I would not hesitate to recommend Donington Den nor to stay here again.
Lovely modern, comfortable place to stay within easy reach of many places of interest. every amenity for a short or extended stay. as ours was.
The owners are lovely to deal with, really accommodating and welcoming.
The house was great, with lots of the things included that make it easy to settle in (washing up liquid, loo paper, shower gel, tea bags ect) It was also spotless with useful storage space. As a family of four, it was perfect for us and we had a very low-stress holiday!
Melbourne is a lovely little village, very good chip shop, some lovely walks, and a decent pub. Cottage was perfect could not fault it, very quiet area apart from the planes but even they were not too bad. Definately will return to Derbyshire, lovely part of England.

My husband and I stayed at Donnington Den with our two young children aged 1 and 2. The property had everything we needed, was very comfortable, clean and attractive. We planned to use the property as a 'base' and go out every day, with a big trip to Cbeebies Land at Alton Towers (which is 50mins away). We hadn't realised how beautiful Melbourne was and used one of our days walking around the quaint shops and tea rooms, looking at historic buildings and viewing the gorgeous gardens at Melbourne Hall. All within walking distance of the property. There is also a mini supermarket less than 5 minutes walk which came in very handy!
A pleasant stay in a lovely property in beautiful Melbourne. We hope to return again and would definitely recommend.
