100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A 10 minute walk from Donington Park's main entrance, The Barn is the perfect base for two people (+ your pet, subject to a fee) to stay comfortably. This one-bedroom, well-equipped self-contained barn conversion has kitchen, dining area, en-suite shower, TV/DVD, Wifi, wood burner and lovely garden views. Parking for up to 2 cars / motorbikes available. Please note we are close to East Midlands Airport and Donington Park so noise may be heard from these sites.

The space
Before it was converted, The Barn was a cart hovel for our house, which we understand was the mill for Donington Hall in nearby Castle Donington.

The Barn is brilliantly located for events at Donington Park and it is just a 10 minute walk to the main entrance.

The space is divided into a separate bedroom, with en-suite shower room (with electric shower and heated towel rail) as well as a wardrobe / storage cupboard. There is plenty of clothes storage and hanging space to make yourself at home and a comfy king-size bed with an electric blanket. The curtains are also blackout lined to help you get a good night's sleep.

The living space is 'open plan', with a full kitchen in one corner. Facilities in the kitchen include kettle, toaster, four-ring ceramic hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge / freezer and there are plenty of glasses, plates etc.

There is no washing machine in The Barn, but we are happy to offer access to this in the main house for a small fee, should you urgently need it.

There is seating for up to four people at the dining table alongside the kitchen. In the living area, there are two large sofas, perfect to stretch out and relax on. There is a TV/DVD and Wifi, as well as a wood burning stove with enough logs supplied to keep you going for a night or two. Any additional logs that you require may be subject to a small charge.

For younger guests, we have some toys and books to keep them entertained. There is also a high chair, travel cot and fire guard, all available on request.

We do accept pets during your stay for which there is an additional charge of £15 per pet per stay up to three nights. For bookings of four or more nights, the charge is £30 per pet per stay. This charge will be raised through the Airbnb platform once you have checked in.

Pets are not permitted on furniture, including the sofas and the bed and you should note that the garden is not secure and leads onto open fields.

Guests who bring dogs must supervise their dogs at all times on the property and pick up any dog mess, disposing of it appropriately. You should also note that we have chickens on the pond's island so any pets should be under control and not want to chase our feathered friends!

From both rooms in The Barn you'll get fantastic views of the garden where you should be able to spot lots of birds, ducks, moorhens and maybe even the Kingfisher and Heron who love the pond. Whilst the pond is in the garden of the main house, please be aware of it if you're booking or staying with young children. There is no lifeguard on duty!

There is outside seating for guests on the patio area or on the grass adjacent to the barn. Just ask if you need additional outside seating and we'll do our best to help!

Please also note that additional guests who were not part of your initial booking will be charged at £15 per person per night via Airbnb.

Where you’ll be

Wilson, England, United Kingdom

The Barn is uniquely located within walking distance of Donington Park, making it the perfect base if you're attending any of the motorsport or music events at the circuit, including Download. Access via the Main Entrance is just 10 minutes' walk from the end of the drive.

We have space available to park trailers or motorbikes, should you be racing at Donington Park and want somewhere to park up ahead of or after your race day.

The Cloud Trail - a walking and cycle track that runs from Worthington into Derby - is less than five minutes' walk from The Barn and there are lots of other local walking routes you can enjoy while staying here.

Our local pub, The Bulls Head in Wilson, is due to open again soon and the larger villages of Melbourne and Castle Donington also offer a great selection of restaurants, pubs and bars.
