Enjoy the peace and quiet amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the country - this is picture postcard countryside set deep in the hills of southern Derbyshire. Weston Wood Lodges is also within easy reach of Derby and Nottingham with their shops and nightlife.
All the lodges here have hot tubs for chilled out nights on the deck, and there are a multitude of towns and villages to visit. Chatsworth House and Calke Abbey are close by and Derby is good for pubs and restaurants - try Restaurant Zest, a converted warehouse that has freshly prepared seasonal menus.

Overall it was lovely, although stating it was a lodge it was more of a deluxe caravan that looked like a lodge from the outside it was still brilliant value for money, i would still come again and reccomend this to others!
Beautiful location and lovely lodge!

I had a phone conversation with someone called Susan prior to arriving and her manner was very stand offish. It actually prompted us to try and change accommodation but we weren't able to.
The lodge itself was faultless. We really enjoyed it, and the location was great.
The only issue we had was that we chose this location because we had access to the onsite gym. However to use the gym it would have cost us £15 each which was extortionate for just one session!
Upgraded to the executive lodge as the Oakwood wS not up to scratch. Glad I upgraded as it made a difference.
Lodge was clean and tidy, Good value for money.

It was a nice location with nice and clean log cabins and the hot tub was fantastic!
Lovely cottages very quiet surroundings , loved that the hot tubs are on the back of the property and very private 10* for that , the cottage itself has got everything you could ask for x the only real problem we had was the smell outside obviously thereâ€™s septic tanks around but would recommend taking some air freshener next time but apart from that we would definitely come back . Luxurious towels and bedding a pleasure and a friendly little squirrel on the decking , lovely place .
We have been visitng the lodges for the last 5 years some the loxley vip lodges are the nicest but canâ€™t be a touch expensive so we have also stayed in the valantine lodge witch is also nice just for the 2 of you and can be cheaper than the vip ... on our last visit our hot tub was not hot due to be changed over we was gutted as was only there for 2 nights so we had to make the most of it on the Saturday once it was warm ... we had no lights out side the back of the lodge in the Friday night I texted the emergancy on call and they was kind enough to come out and change them all the Saturday afternoon .. we had no rubbish bags I did go over and ask but they must of forgot to bring me one so lucky enough I found one on the floor out the back of the lodge and used that apart from these little things we always enjoy our stay itâ€™s very relaxing and nice to unwind from work
Lovely staff very welcoming. Great romantic cabin tucked away. We shall be returning.
