Beautiful cottage situated perfectly for lots of activities around Nottinghamshire

5 of 5
We loved every minute staying at the Parlour. It’s beautifully renovated with everything you need for a lovely break. Karen and the family were very welcoming. We especially liked the location of The Parlour- being only 20 mins or so away from all the attractions such as Sherwood Pines, Clumber Park and Rufford Park. We are looking forward to our next stay!

What a gorgeous find !!

5 of 5
What a gorgeous surprise to find this little gem hidden in a beautiful area of Nottingham. From the first encounter with Jo, the ease of booking was a pleasure, the follow up was efficient and clear and the result was a stunning cottage, set in quiet, well treed, lovely garden. The cottage is newly built to very high specs, tastefully decorated and designed, and fitted out with everything we could possibly have wanted. The outside private seating, snugged down away from the house was perfect. The open plan kitchen and living area was airly, elegant and stunning. The bathroom was large, well fitted out and beautifully laid out - as was the main bedroom, which had a comfy bed, gorgeous linen and lovely soft pillows. The best compliment i could give is that we will definitly be going back and would recommend it to anyone !
