“Comfortable welcoming accommodation”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

A really lovely homely cottage in a traditional Nottinghamshire village, with attendant ceiling beams that are not too low (approximately 6' from the floor)! The whole atmosphere on arrival was excellent and the place was clean and well appointed. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom on the first floor recently renovated and thus clean and well fitted. The garden is manicured and largely secluded. There are some new properties nearby, but these don't detract from the location of the property. A very good welcome pack also describes the interesting history of the property.
The lounge is comfortable with a settee and high easy chair. The dining table is an excellent and solid antique which seats four people with ease. The kitchen has all the necessary offices, dishwasher, fridge etc and all the utensils and crockery are provided along with tea and coffee facilities.
Very handy for all local facilities and on a direct bus route to Nottingham, so easy and cheap travel, with the bus stop on Chapel Street around 100 yards from the property. We purchased a Grouprider for £7.50 which enabled both of us to travel on any Nottingham City Transport bus all day. The buses leave pretty well every half hourly but take different routes to get into the city.
A slight word of caution for disabled people. As an older property, the stairs to the first floor are quite steep and all the bedrooms are on the first floor. If the driver is also disabled, the car park space is at the foot of the garden which requires a walk of around 20 yards to the cottage up a hill approximately 1 in 5. Otherwise, if the driver is able to walk this hill, the car can be temporarily parked outside the cottage door on the level to enable the disabled person to avoid the hill. Able bodied persons would have no problem with this property.

Thank you for writing a review. We are glad you enjoyed the cottage and found the welcome pack useful and interesting. It was good to hear from you about the Grouprider scheme and that you were able to use public transport to get from the village into Nottingham. We hope to see you again when you are next in the area.

Very well equipped and cosy property. Very well located for trips out, albeit that we were only visiting the national watersports centre. Local pubs looked nice and all withing walking distance

“Delightful Holiday Accommodation”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We really enjoyed our stay in Dickman Cottage. We were a party of four adults and a baby and we found the cottage and facilities fully met our needs. The cottage was always warm and comfortable and had everything we might need. I would highly recommend this property and would certainly book again the next time we return to the area.

“Relaxing base to explore the area”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A cosy cottage, which is very well equipped. We were very comfortable and found it a good base to explore locally. We stayed here with our friends and found it very nice. The village is quiet, but there are local pubs which serve food to walk to, and the cottage has a lovely garden which we were able to sit out in, as we enjoyed some sunshine too. A lovely area to explore.

Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We visited(family of four) plus a dog- for three nights to visit friends and family. The cottage is ideal with the pub in walking distance. The cottage is comfortable and had everything you need.
On arrival the cottage was freezing! It did warm up pretty quickly but not a great welcome after 6 hour drive from Scotland. I would also say that the towels (just 4 so 1 each) were really small and were of the sort that don't dry you. I would bring my own towels if I stayed again. I would definitely recommend the cottage - good value.

Thank you for your review and for staying at our property. We are sorry you found the cottage cold on your arrival. The default setting for the gas central heating is timed (morning and evening) so the heating may not have been on when you arrived. However, the initial instructions issued to guests do tell you how to switch the heating on and it is so efficient that the property is invariably warm in 10 minutes (maximum). We are sorry you did not like the towels. They are good quality towels from John Lewis and we consider them to be "normal" size. We regret that these issues detracted from your enjoyment of our property on this occasion. RMS
