Once inside, there is full access for a wheelchair to the hallway/living/dining/kitchen area as well as to the spacious shower room. Inside the shower cubicle there is a hand-rail for those who need it.

“A wonderfully relaxing home from home.”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2018

This cottage is so delightful to spend time in. It is beautifully decorated and the space is used so cleverly (to make several little areas to relax indoors or out). The host leaves lovely little welcoming touches to make guests feel special - flowers, breakfast hamper, logs for the log burner etc etc. You can just 'hole up' here and relax, read, watch TV... or the fabulous log burner. Or you can take a trip to Nottingham for city amenities, Grantham - for a wander around or country walks, stunning historic houses (including Belvoir Castle on Sundays). The visitor book shows many, many repeat bookings. A sure sign that this cottage is superb. I also think it is excellent value for such a beautiful place! Very highly recommended.

Response from the owner Hi Julie - we're so pleased you all enjoyed yourselves and look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
