Just a 10 minutes' walk from Donington Park (Paddock entrance), The Barn is the perfect base for up to four people to stay comfortably. This one-bedroom (and double sofa bed), well-equipped self-contained barn conversion has full kitchen, dining area, shower room, TV/DVD, Wifi, wood burner and beautiful garden views, as well as parking. Fantastic village pub approx. 15 minutes walk away.
Before being converted a few years ago, The Barn was a cart hovel for the main house, which we understand was the flour and water mill for Donington Manor in nearby Castle Donington.
The Barn is brilliantly located for events at Donington Park and it is just a 10 minutes' walk to the Paddock entrance.
The space is divided into a separate bedroom, which has an en-suite shower room (with electric shower and heated towel rail) as well as a wardrobe / storage cupboard. There is plenty of clothes storage and hanging space to make yourself at home and a comfy king-size bed. The curtains are also blackout lined to help you get a good night's sleep.
The living space is 'open plan', with the full kitchen in one corner. Facilities in the kitchen include kettle, toaster, four-ring ceramic hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge / freezer and there are glasses, plates etc. for at least six people.
Please note that there is no washing machine in The Barn, but we would be happy to offer access to this in the main house should you urgently need it.
There is seating for four people at the dining table alongside the kitchen and in the living area, there is a double sofa (sofa bed) and a separate arm chair and foot stool. There is a TV/DVD and Wifi, as well as a wood burning stove with enough logs supplied to keep you going for a couple of nights!
From every room in The Barn you'll get fantastic views of the garden where you should be able to spot lots of birds, maybe even the Kingfisher and Heron who love the pond. Whilst the pond is in the garden of the main house, please be aware of it if you're booking or staying with young children.
Whilst we are in the process of creating a much more private outside space for The Barn, there is an outside table and chair for guests. Additional outside seating can also be shared from the main house, if you require this.
Interaction with guests
The Barn is a self-contained space and you're free to come and go as you please during your stay. However, there is usually someone available in the main house or via mobile phone if you have any questions or queries while you're here.
Other things to note
At the moment the driveway for the main house runs past the front of The Barn. Work is taking place at the moment - and nearly finished - to move the driveway to ensure The Barn has private parking spaces and a separate garden area and outside space. Whilst traffic up and down the drive is minimal, especially in the evenings, please be aware of this on booking.
