Lovely, comfortable, well maintained accommodation. Joan looks after you so well, nothing too much trouble. Lovely spot in a beautiful village. Close to the Dukeries, especially Welbeck on which estate it sits. Well worth a visit. Breakfast is the icing on the cake.

Why is it adults only
The rooms are in close proximity to the main house and each other. It is a tranquil retreat and would be spoiled by children's play and naturally louder voices. It is somewhere to go to escape the turmoil of the modern world. Very highly recommended.
