The Cottage Information


Kick back and relax at The Cottage......... Willington, and the surrounding area including the very popular Mercia Marina, is perfect for energetic outdoor activities like cycling, paddle boarding, canoeing & running. For a more relaxing break why not take a barge trip, enjoy a spot of bird & wildlife watching or just take a gentle stroll along the canal. Here at The Cottage we love to welcome your furry friends, if you let us know you are bringing your dog we will have ready in your room a food & water bowl, a warm blanket and some special treats. Dogs are also permitted in our garden and bar area. We have 7 beautiful rooms at The Cottage all individually designed with tea & coffee making facilities, iron & ironing board, hairdryer, fan, heater, flat screen TV, wifi & toiletries. We have 5 standard double rooms and 2 superior rooms. 4 of our rooms can be made into twin rooms and 2 of our rooms can accommodate additional beds or travel cots. Our housekeepers have been working very hard to ensure we have all the measures in place for you to be able to enjoy a beautiful stay with us and feel safe and covid secure. Our award winning pub, The Dragon is located just next door to The Cottage, where we offer a fantastic selection of locally sourced food and drink including our infamous champagne breakfasts & afternoon teas. We also have our stunning pub garden offering canal side dining with picturesque views of the Trent and Mersey Canal. Nearby Cities include Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Burton on Trent & Ashby de la Zouch. Motorways close by are M1, M42, M6.

The Bespoke Inns family has owned the Dragon since 2009. Due to popular demand in 2014 we extended our restaurant and kitchen areas, then in 2016 added our fantastic Cottage accommodation. At The Cottage all we wish is that you have a perfect and memorable visit, so if there is anything you would like to add to your stay or want to let us know, then please do so. We can't wait to welcome you.
