Knowle Hill is a hidden Landmark Trust woodland retreat with a pretty Gothic summerhouse. Its remote position is down a long gated farm track and the cottage has been renovated for you to stay in, with the summerhouse as your drawing room, it opens onto a sunny lawn with a view into the woods beyond. Sleeping up to five people in three bedrooms (1 double,1 twin and a single) the property is well furnished, warm and comfortable.
Beautiful walks meander down wooded paths from a terraced lawn, with views across the treetops from the cottage itself. In 1698 Walter Burnett retired from the Middle Temple. Picturesque it most certainly is, though parents will want to keep a close eye on small children due to the steep drops and the stream in the ravine below.
The small village of Ticknall is just a short distance from the “un-stately home and estate” of Calke Abbey. The faded glory of the house, stables and gardens gives fascinating and enlightening insight into the dramatic decline of country houses during the 20th century. The historic market town of Melbourne is only a few miles away, and is worth visiting for its splendid Norman church and its many other listed buildings, including the Grade II listed Melbourne Hall with its impressive formal gardens.
