About Croxton Lodge
Croxton Lodge is part of the Croxton Park Estate, in Leicestershire. The lodge shares a courtyard with another holiday house, the Curlew’s Nest. Each of the properties has 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 16 guests.
Croxton Lodge is arranged as an upside-down house, and has the bedrooms on the ground floor. Each of the four bedrooms have an en-suite, two of the bedrooms are twins, and have a roll-top bath.
Further on from the bedrooms, there is a comfortable sitting room, and a games room with a snooker table. There’s a further, separate shower room and loo, on the ground floor.
Upstairs, there’s a large sitting room, with a dining table and a bar, for any cocktail fantasists. There’s a small, practical kitchen.
The Curlew’s Nest has a more traditional layout, with the bedrooms (all en-suite) on the first floor, over-looking the lake. The ground floor has an open-plan living area.
Both the Lodge and the Curlew’s Nest share a gravelled courtyard with a big, outside table and BBQ. Guests are welcome to walk and play in the grounds of the Croxton estate.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“Both of the holiday houses were renovated beneath the eye of the Duchess of Rutland, and she clearly has an admiration for artistic wallpaper. My absolute favourite is in one of the bedrooms, and incorporates a parliament of owls.”
About the Location
The Croxton Park Estate is just outside the village of Croxton Kerrial, in Leicestershire. It’s four miles from Belvoir Castle (home of the Duchess), and near to the market town of Grantham. Grantham has a main-line train service, and is about 40 minutes taxi drive from the estate.
Things To Do
The Lodge and Curlews’ Nest were once part of a country sport estate, and the area is very much set up for hunting or shooting. There are some lovely, local walks, and a decent pub, The Geese and Fountain, in Croxton Kerrial.
Melton Mowbray is about 15 minutes away by car, and is known for celebrating its excellent pork pies and Stilton cheeses.
