Ticknall Lodge at Calke Abbey

Ticknall Lodge on the Calke Abbey Estate, Derbyshire

Ticknall Lodge sits at the main entrance to the Calke Abbey Estate. It is just a few metres from Ticknall High Street providing easy access to this picturesque village.

Take a break

The lodge is a Grade II listed building and was built in 1806. It has been refurbished with plenty of character. The cottage sleeps three people and can accommodate one dog.

The ground floor

On the ground floor you will find the spacious kitchen/dining room with a modern yet rustic country feel. It is equipped with a washing machine/dryer and microwave.
The sitting room is a good size and an unusual shape with large windows which fill the room with light. It has an open fire which really adds to the character and cosiness. The stairs in this property are particularly steep and may not be suitable for everyone. 

The first floor

The property has two bedrooms. The first is a double room with a 5 foot (1.5m) bed and the other is a comfortable sized single room. The bathroom is modern with a shower over the bath.

The garden

A door leads from the kitchen/dining room out onto the large garden which has a seating area and is mainly laid to lawn.
The garden is partially enclosed and has great views of mature trees. As you are right on the entrance of the Calke Estate you can take in the 600 acres of parkland at your leisure after the park has closed to visitors.
There is parking available for two cars to the front of the cottage and a garage
