About Us

Located in Castle Donington the Cottage is run by the owner Helen who strives to make the Guest House a warm and friendly atmosphere for all her Guests. The property built in the late 17 century, was originally four cottages and has been sympathetically altered to seven letting rooms consisting of four en suite bedrooms and three with shared bathrooms. There is a small Guest Kitchen with microwave fridge utensils and crockery in it for those who wish to use it. There is plenty of car parking behind the premises leading on to a spacious garden which our guests are very welcome to enjoy.
