"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.

"Very comfortable house ideally situated for East Midlands attractions."
Donington Den is a very clean, comfortable house situated in a lovely village with an interesting array of small, independent shops. We enjoyed our stay there so much that we have already re-booked the house for another trip to visit family in the area. The owners were very obliging and arranged for a neighbour to be on hand with the key to the house as the owners were away on holiday when we arrived. I would recommend the house for a relaxing stay in a nice area of the country.
