The Grange Derbyshire

The Grange Derbyshire Heart of England

The place for a perfect party

The Grange Derbyshire, in the little village of Donisthorpe, offers something a bit special. When you stay here you can enjoy the luxury and exclusivity of a private country estate in a quiet Derbyshire village. Unlike many of our properties, The Grange Derbyshire positively welcomes stag and hen parties and is the perfect place for that special get-together, whether it is a special birthday, a reunion, an anniversary or just a holiday away with your extended family. Set in 1.5 acres of gardens, and with accommodation for 26 people, The Grange Derbyshire is a fantastic home and will be exclusively yours for the duration of your stay.

There is plenty to do in and around The Grange Derbyshire: take a stroll round the garden or play croquet on the lawn or have a go on the trampoline; have a game of pool or darts; enjoy a Jacuzzi bath or relax in the huge hot tub; take in a movie in the 12-seater cinema or enjoy a quiet read in one of the four lounges. And the Wi-Fi around the house allows you to keep in touch with the outside world.

Guest reviews

The Grange was the perfect venue for my hen party - we all had SUCH a blast! From the hot tub to the cinema room, the facilities are amazing. The chef service was fantastic too. Thank you for a very enjoyable weekend.

Despite the fact this house was original built in 1690, The Grange Derbyshire has an air of modernity and comfort. Bright, modern décor is the hallmark of the house with two comfortable sitting rooms with views over the courtyard and gardens. The wonderful orangery with French doors to the garden, lies alongside the main kitchen where there is a dining table for up to 22 people. For smaller groups there is a formal dining room that seats ten. And the house is fully fitted with two dishwashers, instant hot water, a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities, a steam cooker, a range cooker, an induction hob and an American fridge!

The master bedroom suite at The Grange Derbyshire has to be seen to be believed! It is 100ft long with original exposed beams, a Victorian open fireplace and great views over the courtyard and gardens. The en-suite has a double Jacuzzi whirlpool bath, a walk-in double power shower, double sink and vanity unit, WC and airing cupboard.

At other end of the spectrum, the old apple store can sleep six kids with access via a spiral staircase. Just the stuff for childhood adventures that will remain as happy memories for ever. There are seven other bedrooms, some with Jacuzzis and some that can be set up as either twins or doubles. There is also a family room with two double beds and, if you really need it, there is a double sofa bed on the landing! There is huge flexibility in the accommodation that it can be arranged to suit most family groups.
