Located in the centre of an historical area with something for everyone and enough to keep even the most active of people busy, no matter how long your stay, or simply relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. There are many sites of historical interest, great parks that can be appreciated on foot or bike, attractions for all ages, inns with reputations for great food, and some excellent restaurants. Accommodation comprises a double en-suite bedroom on the ground floor, two double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, a family bathroom with twin whirlpool bath and twin steam shower enclosure, and a separate bathroom with walk-in shower on the first floor. In total we can comfortably accommodate ten people (plus infant). There is a private courtyard with rattan all-weather furniture to seat up to ten people, and a decked area leading to a six-seater superior hot tub. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor - a dining room with an extendable oak table that seats up to ten people, and a lounge with leather sofas, a wood burning stove, a Sony 42' Flat Screen TV with surround sound, and Sky+ HD with 'On Demand' feature. Wifi is also provided for your convenience. Due to the size of the accommodation and its cleaning requirements, one and two-night stays are charged as three nights. The hot tub is drained, cleaned and refilled between every booking by a professional service company.More

Thank you for your kind comments. We ask guests to keep noise to a minimum after 10 pm in the courtyard area simply out of respect to the neighbours, and the hot tub hours are also for safety reasons. The living room and dining room...More

About the neighbourhood
Within a short distance there are many pubs, restaurants, bistros and tea rooms. For general provisions there is a Tesco and Asda in New Ollerton, or for traditional wares a visit to Edwinstowe is a must where you will find family run grocers and butchers such as Goff's, where you will find specialist sausages, pre-prepared meat dishes, home made pies and quiches, and quality bar-be-que fayre. For eating out, try The Maypole at Wellow, The Dog and Duck in Kings Clipstone, Launays Restaurant and Forest Lodge in Edwinstowe, or Rose Cottage opposite the entrance to Rufford Abbey.
Getting around
The Rose Cottage and Rufford Abbey and both within walking distance from the property. Ollerton and Edwinstowe are around ten minutes drive away and there are many local mini cab services available for different group sizes and will take you to and from any of the many local attractions, including Nottingham town centre and Newark, which is also the nearest mainline railway station.
