My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, although sadly no garden but there is a south facing sunny terrace in the front to sit out. It is therefore full of character but quite SMALL with low doors and oak beamed ceilings. It is one of the original '2 up, 2 downs' from around 1800 and in recent years was modernised and a small toilet/shower room added. It has been decorated and furnished in keeping with the period complete with some antique furniture so not really suitable for small children. You do actually sense the history in the ambiance. The kitchen is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table and the living room cosy, especially when the log fire is blazing away in the grate but please note, we do not have big loungy sofas - we have period seating that may not be compliant with 21st century expectations. Please be aware of this if you are thinking of booking. Situated in a no-thru road, literally just off the main centre and market square of Bingham, it is quiet but with easy access to Nottingham. Fine for 4 people (max )if not to tall!
YOUNG CHILDREN: Children of a responsible age (over around 7 years) are welcome . The antique style of furnishing means low items like fire tongues, small pictures, decorative lights etc. could easily be damaged and at the same time be dangerous to a small child. Babies who are not yet mobile would of course be fine, although we do not have cot facilities, high chairs or any other baby bits and pieces.
MEDIUM TERM LETS: If you are in between houses or working for maybe just 2 or 3 months in the area, it may be that we can give you a slightly preferential rate for a 'medium term ' stay. I regret I cannot possibly match the monthly rates of a 6 month let but I am sure you dont not want the committment of a 6 month contract either. We could talk about it.
FIBRE WIFI Super Fast : Available in the cottage!! , however Computers with internet/printers can also be found free of charge just 5 minutes away in the local library on an hourly basis.

It speaks for itself !!
stayed at rosehip cottage as a last minute booking - owner was very helpful in arranging this. Cottage is very nicely presented just 100m from the main market square where there are many pleasant pubs and restaurants as well as local supermarket chains to get supplies. Quiet location as it is on a street that is a dead end. Lacks a garden but does have a front terrace to sit out on. Bingham is a very nice village/small town, with excellent access to nottingham and all major routes. Caretaker was especially helpful and was contactable for any problems. Overall we would highly recommend this cottage to other guests.
We stayed in Rosehip Cottage for 10 days this summer because our daughters attended a course in Nottingham. The owner's description of the cottage was perfectly accurate - it is small, but perfectly functional and with plenty of character. It is very well equipped and everything was in working order.
The location was perfect for us - Bingham is a lovely little town just 25 minutes drive from Nottingham. Shops, restaurants, bus services are all within a couple of minutes walk. The street itself is very quiet and there is always parking space outside the house. There are several beautiful parks (Wollaton, Kelham, Sherwood Forest...) within short driving distance.
The owner herself is extremely efficient and helpful and there are friendly neighbours around ready to help out if needed.
We have spent a very enjoyable week in Rosehip cottage: it is located in a very quiet street (not a single noise at night!) , the neighbours are friendly and helpful.
The cottage is small but has everything you need; the brand new kitchen is perfect!!! (I specially appreciated to have a gas cooker and oven!) And we found all the basic items - and more - in the cupboards (no need to rush shopping!).
The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable.
We will definitely come back!
(We would also like to add a special thank you to Traci who made us most welcome!)
This is a quintessentially English cottage situated on a quiet cul de sac only 2 minutes walk from the very pretty market square of this small town. There’s a cosy kitchen diner, a wealth of beams and a real log fire which can be lit on chilly evenings. On warmer days, you can sit and relax or eat al fresco on the small terrace at the front of the house. The cottage is furnished in olde worlde style (great for anyone interested in antiques & collectables) and has comfortable beds with lovely crisp linen. It has always been spotlessly clean.
There are a good selection of pubs, eating places, take-aways and supermarkets as well as a weekly market in the town square.
Bingham is conveniently situated for the historic town of Nottingham with it’s Robin Hood connections, Lincoln with it’s cobbled streets & famous cathedral, Newark with it’s riverside walks and the splendid Beauvoir Castle. For antique hunters like us, the huge showground antique fairs of Newark, Swinderby & Lincoln are a short drive away. We’ve stayed here in both the summer and winter whilst antique hunting and have enjoyed our stay every time. A little home from home ?
Great little place as a base for my parents & sister visiting from Australia. They needed some where to stop as my place here in England wasn't big enough for 5 adults. This was perfect as was only down the road from my own place.
Everything went smoothly with transfering payment and getting the keys. Both the owner of the property and the lady who looks after it were lovely.
Perfect location for walking into Bingham to get little bits & pieces and my parents really liked the chinese restaurant.
Parking was good, we were always able to park on the street, which really helped.
I even stayed here myself with my parents & sister the night before my wedding and got ready here, the photographer got some lovely shots in the kitchen and lounge room.
My parents would love to stay here again when they next visit, they really liked it.
We had a great time using the cottage as a base for visiting. The bijou nature of the cottage meant that it was very warm in the depths of a cold English winter. The cottage was clean and well-maintained. The weather caused a couple of problems but these were dealt with swiftly.
The description of "village" could probably be upgraded to "small market town" which gave us access to more facilities than would be expected. However, it can definitely be referred to as "rural" with plenty of country walks available. It was also very easy to get into Nottingham by bus or train.
I would definitely recommend it to others. It is ideal for a couple who may want overnight guests.
Well Robin Hood country of course. Come and trace the history of Robin Hood - he robbed the rich to pay the poor (apparently!). The logs for the fireplace come from Nottingham Forest. There are many old villages and pubs all around the area .The evocative 11th century castle - erected by William the Conqueror and rebuilt by the Duke of Newcastle in the 18th century brings back the decades of history associated with Nottingham and surrounding lace market . Nottingham itself boasts the oldest inn in England. Modern Nottingham is thronging with nightlife and restaurants with some of the biggest national companies and Universities based there but there are also many outlying areas of natural beauty and protected bird life.
The great city of Nottingham should not be missed and offers a litany of enthralling museums. Its modern name derives from an Anglo-Saxon chieftain called Snot - hence Snotingham!
Ski: There is a fake Snow Dome in Nottingham where you can indeed ski.
There are trains to Nottingham less than 5 minutes walk from the cottage and similarly express buses about every 20 minutes which take about 30 -40 minutes to the centre.
