Things To Do in Castle Donington
Sitting in open countryside to the south of the River Trent, in its own landscaped gardens, with lots of room for two and four legged friends to really stretch out and relax away from it all. Head down to the river with pooch, and explore the wooded banks and tributaries of the Trent, which dominates the landscape of the area.
Head west towards King’s Newton, and pick up the old railway path across the river towards Derby, or head east to Castle Donington, with its dog friendly pubs, cafes and restaurants. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, Donington Park racing circuit is just south of Grange Lea, and has race meetings throughout the year.
This part of the midlands is home to the National Forest, which spans the borders of Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Notts and Staffordshire. A short drive to Burton upon Trent takes you to the headquarters of the Forest, where you’ll find helpful visitor centres with maps of the best walks and trails to follow, with your well behaved canine companion by your side.
There are also many reservoirs in the area, fed by the Trent, and you can find some excellent water sports and lakeside paths here. Staunton Harold Reservoir, to the south of Donington, is a particular favourite with dog owners.
South west of the reservoir is the National Trust run Calke Abbey, which sits in acres of grounds for pooch to explore while you take in the Abbey’s culture and history. To the north east of the reservoir, meanwhile, is Melbourne, which has the distinction of having more places to eat per area than anywhere outside of a major city.
It’s a foodie’s paradise, and your furry friend will love the sights and smells of this thriving market town.
Grange Lea is a four bedroom, detached house in half an acre of its own grounds, which really does take some beating. With sunlit rooms throughout, and views in every direction from the bedrooms, it’s a great place to stay.
Just on the doorstep is superb countryside, with the mighty River Trent flowing to the north, offering miles of waterside paths for people and pooches alike to enjoy. Nearby are famous visitor attractions like Donington Park and Calke Abbey, plus the natural beauty of the National Forest, which surrounds the towns and cities in this part of the midlands.
With easy connections to Derby, Nottingham and Leicester, not to mention East Midlands Airport, you’re never far from anything you might need. A great place to stay, and a great base from which to explore.
