"a very nice holiday home and a friendly welcome"

We stayed at Donington Den with our 2 small children and enjoyed it very much. We received a very nice welcome. The house was very clean and cosy with all the necessary appliances. It's a nice base to discover the surounding region in a cute village. We just wished we had stayed longer

"Perfectly situated cosy cottage in the heart of Derbyshire"

Lovely, cosy cottage. It was very clean and perfect for our family of 4. It was a home away from home. The hosts were very friendly and the welcome pack was yummy. Short walk into town to shops, pubs and restaurants.
