The Space

Cosy bed and breakfast where you can feel at home, within Willington village and easy reach of Derbyshire Peak District with excellent road connections. Willington station is a 2 min walk, with trains to Birmingham (40mins) and Derby/Nottingham (12 and 30mins). Great location as a base for exploring the Derbyshire Peak District sites and activities: Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, walking and cycling and many other outdoor activities. We are about 20mins from Donington Park if you are attending a music festival such as "Download" or the MotoGP, or if you are visiting friends on Mercia Marina in the village or visiting neighbouring Repton School. Village general store, Post Office/Newsagent, Florist, Cafe, 3 pubs (2 serving food), Beauty Salon, Hairdresser, and Pharmacy are all within 3 mins walk or less. 3 petrol stations within a mile.

Accommodates 5 guests in total in 3 rooms. Each ROOM has a separate AirBnB listing. THIS LISTING RELATES TO THE SINGLE ROOM. The photos here show all all the rooms available and are labelled.

Excellent breakfast, guest lounge with library, garden, parking and free wi-fi. Host has lots of tourist info/walking guides and maps for the area and beyond and provides help with itineraries, where to eat, what to see.

There are two other rooms, One is located in self-contained annex with en suite and kitchenette. The other room can be set up as a double (superking) bed or as a twin bedded room.

Please note that AirBnB states the rate as £35, but this is per person, per night, so if you are booking a double room (2 persons) for 1 night using the other room listings, for example, the cost will be £70.00.

Check In
  • Brenda's guesthouse was lovely. The single room I stayed in was compact but beautifully decorated, the bathroom has a power shower (always a bonus!) and she makes an excellent breakfast. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Beautifully cosy home and Brenda made us feel very welcome! Added bonus of having our own sitting room space to relax. We didn't expect her to go out of her way as much as she did, buying soya milk/olive oil spread for breakfast just because I am lactose intolerant - very attentive to helping out wherever she could! would definitely recommend, as our first airbnb we left extremely happy :)

  • I booked this for my partner who was working in the area for a few days. He said he though the room/annex was fabulous and couldn't ask for more. Brenda was really welcoming and an excellent host - He will definitely be back. Thank you.

  • Thank you Brenda for a home away from home experience. Very clean and comfortable. Although I only stayed for one brief evening I would definitely return and recommend to others staying in the area.

  • Warm welcome, bedroom and shower room are a good size. Bed was very comfortable. The food cooked by Brenda is very tasty.

  • Brenda is an articulate and interesting person and her house is immaculate and delightful. I had a great stay and heartily recommend her.
    She has several rooms available depending on the size of your party. I was alone and had the single bedroom, which is very nice. The bed is very comfy, although it is six inches shorter than me. I also had use of a lounge with tea/coffee facilities and a tv.
    I had my own bathroom which is clean and beautiful, and overall the experience is difficult to fault.
    I would be very happy to stay with Brenda again if she'll have me.

    October 2013
  • I stayed 2 nights at Acorns Guest house. The place was exactly as advertised and Brenda was a great host with easy and swift communication via email. I would definitely recommend this place.
