An 18th-century manor house in secluded grounds: luxury and style
This glorious listed Grade II Georgian manor house offers hospitality in a grand yet accessible style, with private, walled grounds set in the heart of the charming village of Breedon on the Hill near Derby. The rooms have been lovingly restored by the current owners, offering comfort and considerable style. There are five guest bedrooms, all en-suite with either a shower, bath or both, and each individually furnished and decorated. Two bedrooms are huge, one large, and two compact – but all are comfortable with a good spread of prices to suit most pockets.
There’s lots of space. A large drawing room is available with an open fire for winter evenings, and an adjoining dining room if dinner is requested. The grounds are beautifully kept, with a croquet lawn and, as it’s in the centre of the village, it’s an easy walk to its two pubs and shop-cum-Post Office. Well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be vaccinated and non-aggressive. Breedon Hall is actually in the National Forest too, and electric*/manual bicycles are available for those who wish to explore further.
* a fee is charged for the e-bikes.
Breedon Hall suggests
Breedon Hall also offers self-catering accommodation in three beautifully-renovated mews cottages. Meynell Mews is a terrace of two-bedroom properties, rich with sumptuous furnishings and period features but also the latest amenities and comforts. Kitchens are well-equipped, all bedrooms are en-suite and there’s wifi throughout. Each sleeps four in comfort (five if you add a trundle bed) and would be a comfortable and elegant base from which to explore the area. To find out more click here.

Breedon Hall is just off the M1 on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border and is close to the borders with Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire: it's easy to explore five counties in just one day! It is in the National Forest that protects 200 square miles of scattered woodlands, but the trees shelter several cultural treasures. The town of Melbourne attracts foodies from far and wide and Ashby de la Zouch is known for its regular farmers' markets. Donington Park Race Track is five minutes away, as are several National Trust properties, including the magnificently unrestored Calke Abbey. East Midlands Airport is five minutes away by car, East Midlands Parkway rail station that connects to Sheffield or London St.Pancras is 15 mins by car.
"I was staying the night to break a long journey with my 5 month old baby and my dog - Breedon Hall couldn't have been more welcoming. Fantastic friendly service, lovely breakfast and a great dog walk straight from the garden."
