Newark, with its antique fairs and air museum is easy to reach. Also close by is Southwell with its minster and excellent Victorian workhouse museum. Shops 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

Living room with wood-burning stove and laminate floor. Well-equipped kitchen/dining room with tiled floor. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite shower room (no toilet). Double bedroom with additional single bed (for alternative sleeping only). Shower room with toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Enjoyed an excellent week in this lovely cottage. The owners were very helpful in advising where to go. Will definitely be back next year. The surrounding area is very nice and plenty of good pubs locally to enjoy a drink or meal. July 2012.
  2. Had a fantastic stay, in the lovely cottage, plenty of cycling for my son and I on local tracks n bridleways, lots of nice places to eat nearby, hoping to stay there again soon, really friendly, helpful owners the cottage has every thing you will ever need for your holiday. Highly recommended. March 2012.
  3. The cottage was lovely and cosy and the owners were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. March 2012.
  4. Quiet comfortable cottage in pleasant location. Plenty to see and do. Some beautiful villages and good eating places nearby. Sept 2011.
  5. The cottage was really lovely, had everything we needed and was very cosy - just what we were looking for! The only thing was that the nearest food shops were in Newark, but this isn’t a very long drive away and not a problem if you do a big shop and manage to remember everything (unlike us). The little village nearby was an easy walk away and we were lucky enough to stumble upon a village fair! The owners are also very nice, I would certainly recommend this property. May 2011.
  6. A very homely little cottage ideal for three people in our party. Very well equipped and the owners took time to explain how things worked especially in respect of the wood burning stove, and how to adjust the electric storage heater system. Oct 2010.
  7. Very well equipped, helpful owners who were not obtrusive. May 2010.
  8. Lovely quiet area, attractive surroundings, well equipped. May 2010.
  9. Warm, welcoming, quiet. Obviously an old building but with all the required mod-cons. April 2010.
  10. The location and the setting of the cottage is first class,and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We will return there again. Oct 2009.
  11. Peaceful location. Oct 2009.
