Set in a secluded, commanding position within thousands of acres of forest, with 2 acres of it's own grounds, Danby Lodge is a Grade II listed, six bedroom Lodge, originally built by order of Charles II, on the recommendation of Samuel Pepys.

El alojamiento
The lodge enjoys stunning scenery and views in a tranquil, and private setting, away from roads and surrounded by wildlife and forest walks. The property is surrounded by dry stone walls and fences with electric gates at the entrance for privacy and security. Facilities include a heated outdoor swimming pool, a games room, a log fire situated within a huge stone fireplace, as well as patio areas for al-fresco dining. A gas barbeque is available for use by guests and the house has ample parking facilities.

The grounds contain a mix of mature gardens, wild areas and private woodland, including a pond, a walled garden containing a carp pond, a greenhouse containing various herbs and vegetables, which visitors can enjoy in summer and a kitchen garden containing raised herb beds. The nearest neighbouring house is around a mile distant through the forest, so guests can be assured of complete privacy and quietness during their stay at the house.

The house contains a total of six bedrooms, four of which contain Super King size beds, one contains a King size, and one a double (in a smaller attic room with low eaves). One of the double bedrooms has a "Zip and Link" bed which can be split into two singles if this is preferable. There is also a (double sized) sofa bed in the library. Three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms which are furnished in a modern style. The main bathroom enjoys a large bath and a walk in marble tiled shower with a Phillipe Starck designer shower and tap ware. Most of the beds in the house are Super King size (for more details see below) and are made up with Egyptian cotton linen, duck feather duvets, toppers and pillows. We provide hand and bath towels for guests, as well as Bulgari Shampoo and Shower Gel.

The house also has a TV Room containing a 60 inch Ultra High Definition Smart TV with Satellite Channels and a high quality sound system with ample DVD's and CD's for use by guests. Downstairs, there is also a dining Hall containing a Refectory table and a large stone fireplace, a reading room (Snug room) and and a further small library room, adjacent to one of the en-suite bedrooms, which can be used as a child's bedroom if required. Please note that the bed in this room is a (double) sofa bed.

Danby Lodge is full of character and historical features, including a huge stone inglenook fireplace, wooden panelling and thick stone walls. The house is furnished with a mix of modern and antique furniture to match the immense character of this magnificent house. One of the bedrooms is accessed via a hidden "priest hole" - a door masquerading as a bookcase. It is a fantastic place for a family holiday or a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The coach house contains a games room with a running machine, a table tennis table, a punch bag and a 42 inch flat screen TV with Satellite TV. There is also a table and a couple of chairs in the games room. A couple of mountain bikes are available for use by guests and Croquet and Boules sets, plus badminton nets and racquets available. In the house, there are various games, including 3D Hangman, Risk, Cluedo, Roadblock, Trivial Pursuits and Outburst. There is also a good selection of books to read.

The kitchen and utility feature granite work-surfaces with Philippe Starck designer taps. The kitchen also contains an American Style Stainless steel fridge freezer, a small informal dining table and chairs, a stainless steel range with six burner gas hob and a Fisher and Paykel dual drawer dishwasher.

It is common to see wildlife in and around the house. There are owls living in a tree within the grounds, and deer and wild boar can often be seen in the forest nearby. Kestrels often visit and perch in trees near to the house and there is a multitude of other birdlife in and near the house. Foxes sometimes visit and can be heard calling at night and the pond contains newts, frogs, tadpoles (at the right time of year) and a few goldfish. Ducks (and sometimes a large Heron) visit the pond at various times of the year.

As the house is situated in the middle of the forest, there are fantastic walks and mountain biking trails which can be accessed directly from the gates in the perimeter of the house's grounds. From April to June, the bluebells are out in the woods surrounding the house, as well as within the grounds. The bluebell woods at Soudley are a short 5 minute walk down the hill from the House.

A number of pubs are situated within around 10 minutes walking distance from the house and a number of further pubs and restaurants can be recommended within easy driving distance. Go Ape, the outdoor tree top adventure park at Mallard's pike, is around 10 minutes walk from the house through the woods.

Although the property sleeps 13, the dining table will accommodate 12 at the most (it easily accommodates 10). There is a small informal dining table in the kitchen which accommodates a further 4 people. The seating around the fire also accommodates approximately 10 people, as does the seating in the TV Room. Please also note that the pool is only open during the Spring/Summer months (May to September). The pool heating will only be turned on if the temperature is forecast to be higher than 20 degrees and relatively good during your stay.
