If you're travelling north from southern England and want an overnight stop near the A1 then the Goat House at Ivy Cottage in Laxton may be just the place. Owned and run by the very charming and helpful Samantha, the Goat House is a stand alone conversion offering double bedroom, excellent bathroom with shower and bath and a spacious lounge area with large screen TV. It's furnished and decorated very sympathetically throughout. My wife and I weren't able to have breakfast in the main house because of Covid so Samantha brought a tray with our requests to the Goat House at the time of our choosing. You can get an excellent dinner at the Dovecote Inn over the road. Overall a very pleasant stay.

My husband found the Goat house whilst looking for somewhere close to a wedding we were attending. Samantha the host is very welcoming and extremely helpful. Her cooked breakfast was delicious too. The accommodation is very comfortable and has everything you could need. The Goat House was spotlessly clean . If visiting the area again we wouldn’t hesitate staying there.

Stayed for 3 nights as was attending training in nearby Edwinstowe. Having been travelling a lot for work lately, I saw this and thought it looked a great alternative to yet another hotel. I’m very pleased that I booked this as it was a fantastic place to come back to at the end of the day and chill out. Beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, quiet and absolutely spotless. Samantha couldn’t have been more helpful and, as others have said, the breakfast is amazing. I can’t recommend highly enough.

We are attending a nearby wedding and found Goat House @ Ivy Cottage. We thought it looked good but when you see it, it is even better. Private accommodation, all modern conveniences but with character. Samantha is a warm hostess and made us a fabulous breakfast. The home made marmalade is well worth trying. Like us, you will want to take home a jar...Laxton looks lovely but we missed out on that. Hopefully an excuse to go back.
