CHATTERLEY HOUSE AND DH LAWRENCE.
Chatterley House is so named due to its close historical links with the famous author D.H. Lawrence, who was born just up the road.
In its former life the building has been a school and a hotel, then In 2014 this extensive property was converted into a very large family home by the current owners.
Three double en-suite double rooms with their own separate entrance are available in this very large Rural Family Property, and the current owners have opened up part of their extensive home to guests.
The property is well situated between the cities of Derby and Nottingham. There is a train station within a 5 minute walk, which takes 11 minutes direct into Nottingham City centre, with all the attractions such as the legend of Robin Hood and Nottingham Castle, plus the galleries of justice and Nottingham caves. Nottingham also has great night life, with many bars and restaurants to visit.
Derby City is only a 20 minute car or taxi journey, and we are well situated for plenty of 24 hr supermarkets, bars, fast food outlets and retail outlets such as Ikea, Next,Decathlon, Costa's, Pizza Express and Pappa John's pizza, Nando's, KFC, Mcdonalds (24hr opening), and more close by...
In this semi rural location, you can enjoy walks or cycle rides down the canal, and free use of our gym and full size table tennis table to keep adults or kids occupied during your stay.
The property is also on the edge of the Derbyshire countryside, with tourist towns such as Matlock and Buxton just 30-45 minutes drive away.
We also have a Breakfast/dining room that can be used by guests, containing microwave, kettle, fridge, washing machine, toaster and unlimited tea/coffee making facilities (Please see photo's).
Although please note that there are no cooking facilities and WE DO NOT provide English cooked breakfasts, we provide items within this kitchen area for guests use, such as cereals, toast, jam, eggs, tea, orange, coffee and milk that allow guests the flexibility to do their own breakfast as and when they require. We find that this offers more flexibility to guests, especially with young children, and makes a great place to eat food or takeaways, as it can seat up to 8 guests, and has a large TV with Netflix (allowing guests to log into their own account, plus multiple tv channels.
Guests have privacy with the ground floor east wing of the house having the bedrooms, dining room and gym/games room. This wing of the house has its own entrance for guests convenience and privacy.
"We stayed here with our grown up children and were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were lovely and clean and modern and the breakfast set up where you helped yourself was brilliant because you didnâ€™t have a set time to stick to. Will definitely be visiting again."

"Wonderful warm welcome and a beautifully clean convenient room. We wanted an overnight stay to break up a journey north and didnâ€™t fancy the usual cheap chains. Chatterley House was perfect. Great value for money. Close to the M1. Comfortable bed, quiet room and great self serve breakfast that meant we could help ourselves and didnâ€™t miss out despite our early morning start. Weâ€™d definitely go back. "
