About Ticknall Lodge

An intriguing pentagonal gate lodge with elegant interiors surrounded by Calke Abbey parkland.

Ticknall Lodge sits at the northern entrance to Calke Abbey and park. Built in 1806, this Grade II listed building has been refurbished as a holiday home but still retains a great deal of character. The most intriguing feature of the cottage is its unusual pentagonal shape. The rounded shape of the living room encloses you in to a cosy space with an open fire, while three large windows stream in lots of light. 

Make the most of your stay on this beautiful estate by exploringe the surrounding parkland before any other visitors arrive. Enjoy free entry to Calke Abbey – a perk of staying at the lodge. 

Further afield, make your way to the town of Melbourne. Within easy reach of the cottage, enjoy a hot drink and slice of cake in a tea room, before sitting down to lunch at one of the towns many pubs and restaurants.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
