Deerpark Lodge is situated in a woodland clearing within private parkland in the grounds of Staunton Harold Hall. The Staunton Harold Estate is a traditional country estate of some 2,000 acres centred on the great Georgian mansion.
Nestling in a corner of north west Leicestershire, close to the Derbyshire border, Deerpark Lodge was built using estate timber for its frame and cladding and provides a contemporary retreat overlooking the parkland.
Accessed via its own drive and entrance, Deerpark Lodge still has access to the craft centre, tea rooms, delicatessen (at weekends) and garden nursery which forms part of the Staunton Harold Estate. There are also magnificent lakes which guests can fish by arrangement at no charge and there are numerous walks throughout the estate. Occupants of the lodge can access the 28 acres of privately owned land which is otherwise not open to the public.
