My wife booked me a course for my birthday at The Artisan School Of Cookery, she also sorted me out with accommodation nearby, as we live a couple of hours away. I arrived to be greeted by Joan, who was very welcoming and friendly, after booking me in and taking my breakfast order for the following morning she took me to my accommodation for the night which was situated in the grounds. Wow! It was stunning and very cozy as my picture shows, it had a nice little bathroom with toilet, walk in shower and sink, the room had the most beautiful four poster bed, there was coffee and tea, a bottle of water and chocolates on the side by the tv, it had everything I needed and more! After settling in, I went out for a bite to eat at The Elm Tree (on Joan’s recommendation) which was superb! She kindly offered to ring up and book me a table but I said don’t worry I would sort it once I’d unpacked. Joan is clearly very well loved in the area and the landlord of the pub asked if I was staying there when I mentioned that I was doing a cooking course, he said what a lovely lady she is and always rings up to book tables at the pub for guests staying with her. After a very good nights sleep I went for breakfast, again, Joan was most hospitable, and nothing was too much trouble for her! My Full English breakfast was very nice and you could tell it was made with local ingredients. I then had to get moving on route to The Cooking School, Joan quickly pulled out a little map and showed me the best direction to go, I said goodbye and went on my way, everything was perfect with my short stay from beginning to the end. If anyone is doing a cooking course I can’t recommend Brown’s enough! Joan offers a first class service that is right up there as one of the best places that I’ve ever stayed, I hope to do more courses at The Cooking School in the future and I most definitely hope to be able to book in at Brown’s again! Thank you Joan and all the best! …
My husband and I stayed here in 2018 for our wedding anniversary at which time I was very heavily pregnant, this location proved to be just the serene comfortable getaway we needed before becoming new parents! We were greeted with a smile and lots or lovely welcoming conversation from Joan, the accomodation was 1st class, we stayed in a beautiful 4 poster bedroom, we ventured out to a recommended pub restaurant for dinner which was gorgeous and breakfast the next day was just amazing, Joan had left a personalised treat on our breakfast plates and the food was delicious and excellently presented. The surrounding area of the Welbeck Estate is wonderful. We would endorse this place to any couple looking for a top class break away. We look forward to returning. Joan you are a gem!
What a great warm and welcoming host Joan is. Browns is just a short walk away from the School of Artisan Food ( my reason for being there) and it couldn’t be lovelier. Quiet comfortable rooms, lovely gardens, great breakfast and chats with Joan. What’s not to love about that! I’ll stay again next time I’m here. Thank you Joan
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.
