Telephone: 01530 831259


Based in a Medieval Manor House dating back to 1280, the house has a fascinating history and was owned by one of the Gunpowder Plotters!

Donington le Heath Manor House is a surviving example of a family home built around seven hundred years ago and modernised in 1618. Surrounding the Manor House, are period gardens and woodland planted as part of the development of the National Forest. The gardens, re-created in a 17th century style, include flower and herb gardens, an ornamental maze and an orchard. The Old Barn Team Room is open at weekends during term time and Wednesday to Sunday during school holidays, serving home baked cakes, light lunches and a range of hot and cold drinks. Look out for our programme of great family events, which cover a wide range of subjects over the year.
