“Great place”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

​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. The house is well equiped and close to a supermarket, cofeeshops and pubs. The owners were very kind and offered a very good attention. We were looking for a quiet place, close to nature, and well located to family fun attractions... and this was perfect.

“GREAT BASE, WONDERFUL LOCATION, EXCELLENT FACILITIES”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

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.

“Loved Donington Den”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have recently returned from a short break at Donington Den. Its a lovely clean modern bungalow and catered for all our needs. We have 2 young children and they loved their room nice comfy beds and even some toys for them to play with along with a selection of dvds and books to choose from. Owners are very friendly and keen to accommodate all your needs. We are already planning to come back.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Donington Den. Our first impressions of the property, were that it was clean and modern and had everything we needed for our short stay there. We visited Nottingham, Burton On Trent & Ashby de la Zouch whilst we were there. Nottingham is brilliant! we will definately be going back there again on a future visit. We didn't manage to do the wheel (like the london eye) as it was school hol's and very busy, but that's on our 'to do' list next time. Thanks also for the welcome pack on our arrival, much appreciated. We will be back again in the future.
