It was a nice surprise to find the heating had been turned on before we arrived on this cold December afternoon. The facilities were generally very good and there wasn't anything we needed that we could not find ready to hand. It was clean and comfortable and in a very good location for walking our dogs with lots of local routes from the door of the cottage. Clumber Park (NT) and Sherwood Forest a short drive away. The owners were very helpful too.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and would definitely come back again. Tracey was very welcoming and her little "welcome hamper" of essentials was more than most people would expect I imagine. The photos don't quite do it justice. Very private and perfectly located if you are looking to explore Nottingham City and the surrounding areas. Thank you!

The property is absolutely stunning and so spacious. It was nice and clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. We stayed in the first night and went out the Saturday night, the property is about 30 minutes from Nottingham city centre. We used the company suggested by the house for our activity on the Saturday. They came to the house and set up bumper balls, archery and team building all of which were thoroughly enjoyed. Also it was so ideal being able to have a company to the house as would have been difficult to transport 22 people elsewhere. The pool set off the property, everyone loved it. Tina, the owner of the property was so accommodating and would always reply so promptly to any questions we had. Would recommend this property to anybody thinking of heading this way! 5 stars!!!
