A fully-furnished 17th century family home.
The 1620s House at Donington le Heath is a surviving example of a family home built around seven hundred years ago and modernised with new windows, roof and fireplaces in 1618.
Explore the furnished rooms, handle the objects and talk to our team of volunteers to discover what life was like for the Digbys in the 1620s.
Surrounding the House, are period gardens and an area of 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, with informative and entertaining labels on all the plants and trees.
