Staying at East Lodge was a wonderful experience and to be able to explore Old Hardwick Hall in private whilst staying in a property so unique was a complete pleasure.
Exceeded expectations and the site manager was very friendly and helpful too, a real asset to EH.
A fantastic lodge, the walled garden was excellent for the dogs and very atmospheric. An added bonus was that the New Hall was so close and the amazing views from every window.
