Viburnum Lodge is a simply stunning two-bedroom lodge located within the highly desirable Mercia Marina’s award-winning conservation park. With its numerous walks, cafes, shops, bars and restaurants there should be plenty to entertain you on site, however for the more adventurous you can tap into the many local attractions and enjoy the beautiful Peak District, only a short distance away.

Viburnum is a luxury lodge furnished to the highest standards, encapsulating everything you could possibly desire for a fantastic stay.

The lodge sits in a prime position directly overlooking the water, with a stunning lakeside view. The spacious external decking areas are bathed in sunlight from dawn until dusk and are furnished with comfortable seating areas for alfresco relaxation and entertainment. It’s a great place from which to immerse yourself in the local wildlife which include species such as, the Tufted Duck, Oyster Catchers and Kingfishers or kick back with a sundowner enjoying the view of our big sky and the amazing sunsets. For those of you who like to fish, all of our guests automatically qualify to the Mercia Marina Angling Club and can fish free of charge at designated places within the marina, so bring your fishing gear! There are some sizeable Carp and Pike, along with many other species of inland waterways fish.

Viburnum lodge has been designed specifically to create a light, airy and spacious feel with design features throughout, such as Orla Kiely curtains, industrial style radiators and solid oak doors.

Upon entering the lodge, you are greeted with an extended, open plan living area with triple aspect windows and two sets of double opening patio doors with direct access to the decked area.

This area boasts a modern fully equipped kitchen with integrated oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a gas hob. With all Dualit appliances, including a Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother. The cupboards are well stocked with high-quality utensils, glasses and Denby crockery to compliment your experience. In addition, there is an integrated wine cooler for your favourite tipple.

The dining area is equipped with a large solid oak dining table and four chairs with views directly over the lake. The wooden chest situated on the console table contains numerous card games.

The comfortable lounge area boasts two leather two seater sofas, a leather footstool and an occasional chair, ideal for relaxing with a book or viewing the lake. The antique chest/coffee table is filled with a selection of games for your enjoyment. Over the feature fireplace with multiple effects and mood lighting you will find a Sony 50” smart tv with sound bar where you can access your Netflix and Prime accounts.

Off the living area is a small boot room incorporating a washer/dryer and somewhere for you to put your shoes and coats.

The sleeping area comprises two generously proportioned, well appointed bedrooms, with feature headboards and double mirrored wardrobes.

The comfortable master bedroom is equipped with a king-sized bed, bedside cabinets and an additional large LG 50” smart tv. A walk through, mirrored dressing area leads to the en-suite bathroom featuring a large walk-in rainfall shower, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom has two 3ft comfortable single beds which can easily be configured either as singles or you are more than welcome to push these beds together if you wish, which still leaves ample space to walk down either side. The LG smart TV is 32” and is equipped with an HDMI cable should you wish to bring your own games console? In addition, this bedroom incorporates an antique school desk, which doubles as a dressing table or work station.

The family bathroom is directly opposite bedroom 2, ideal if two couples are sharing the lodge. There is a bath with rain shower over, vanity unit, WC and heated towel rail.
