  • Thinking of extending your stay?

    The areas surrounding the hotel are full of greenery and plenty of dedicated places to enjoy it. Just over 20 minutes away is the Attenborough Nature Reserve and Centre, which is home to over 160 species of bird. It is also considered one of the best places in the UK to see a kingfisher, if you can pry your eyes away from the cute otters and other critters who roam these parts. We also love visiting Elvaston Castle Country Park, St Chad's Nature Reserve, Bird Island, and the dog friendly Manor Farm Nature Reserve.

    Looking for a different kind of stroll? Within 15 minutes you could be making your way around more than one million square feet of pure, unadulterated shopping heaven. Also know as the Derbion Shopping Centre. If that is not enough to keep you busy there is also an onsite cinema, bowling alley, and adventure golf course.

    If you want something a little faster paced, make sure you don't blink and miss the excitement happening at Donington Park Circuit. Satisfy your need for speed just round the corner. In less than 20 minutes you could be wizzing round the track or witnessing the pros put the pedal to the metal to win.
