Nottinghamshire

Read on to discover some of the attractions you can enjoy whilst staying at one of our cottages in Nottinghamshire. For many choosing a short break in one of our Nottinghamshire cottages the county is synonymous with Sherwood Forest and its most legendary inhabitant Robin Hood.
In medieval times Sherwood covered much of the county above the River Trent. Here stands England's most famous tree, The Major Oak, believed to be nearly a thousand years old. Legend has it that Robin Hood hid from his enemies inside it. The annual week-long Robin Hood summer festival aims to recreate the atmosphere of medieval England, with its jousts, strolling players and medieval encampment complete with jesters, musicians, rat-catchers, alchemists and fire eaters.
On arrival at our holiday cottages in Nottinghamshire visitors are keen to discover what the county has to offer. 'Hidden gem' can be an overused phrase, but is an apt description for Southwell, one of the county's treasures. Southwell is located in the heart of rural Nottinghamshire, a delightfully unspoiled small market town possessing probably the least known cathedral in the country and some very fine Georgian houses. It is the smallest cathedral city in England - since any town with a cathedral is automatically a city. The cathedral itself features superb examples of Norman and Gothic architecture in a building that has survived virtually unscathed down the years.
Nottinghamshire is also well known for Laxton, Europe's last 'Open Field Village'. Here, farming still operates under the medieval strip system with each farmer allotted an individual ribbons of land in open, or common, fields by a manor court. A local visitor centre provides a fascinating glimpse into this unique village.
Close to Sherwood Forest is the National Trust's Clumber Park, the largest park in Europe. From Easter Egg Trails and Family Fun Days to guided walks, open-air concerts and theatre the park hosts many public events every year and is also an excellent location for walking or cycling. The park's centrepiece was once a fine country house, now demolished. However almost everything else remains, stables, church, 18th-century Italianate bridge, follies and entrance. The estate has a large lake, a double avenue of lime trees and a walled garden with unusual and old vegetables grown alongside modern varieties. So, why not browse our selection of Nottinghamshire cottages to find the ideal base from which to explore these attractions? ... Read More »
