Cottage
We are in a quiet village location surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the River Trent. Stable Cottage was originally a block of 3 stables that has been converted into a beautiful 2 bedroom holiday cottage. It's interior has a vintage / shabby chic look and is light and spacious. There is a 'secret garden' for your sole use during your stay which is perfect for al fresco dining. There is off road parking just outside the cottage. Open the patio doors in the kitchen and again, you have your own private space for dining or a chilled glass of wine! There are 2 bedrooms (one double and one single). Heating is by thermostatically controlled radiators in each room. The lounge is spacious and light, the cupboard under the TV/DVD has a selection of books and games for you to us...We are in a quiet village location surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the River Trent.

Seating in the kitchen comprises of a fold out table and 2 chairs with an antique church pew offering additional dining seating. You will find the kitchen fully equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine for your convenience, no washing up by hand necessary during your holiday! Our house is opposite the cottage and we will be available should you have any queries or need to know anything about getting out and about during your stay. Our hens can be seen wandering round in their secure pen now as Mr and Mrs Fox decided they wanted lots of chicken for their dinner! If you are lucky, 'our girls' may lay some lovely fresh eggs for your breakfast! Please note, we have upgraded out internet to BT Fibreoptic but the service is not good at present. We are trying to resolve this with BT. Please consider that wifi may not be good / available during your stay.More

About the neighbourhood
What's on and where to go? A car is necessary to make the most of exploring this area. Some of the great places you can visit are Sherwood Forest and Major Oak, Creswell Crags, Vulcan XH558 (at Robin Hood Doncaster Airport) and during display season, you may be lucky enough to see her fly right over the cottage!, If you like antiques and collectables, there is a very popular car boot at Torksey every Wednesday and Saturday which starts at 12noon, no early start for that one! In the summer months, there are car boot sales on alternate Sunday mornings at Harby and North Scarle, definitely worth a visit. Newark Showground is the location of the International Antiques and Collectors Fairs and Lincoln also hosts Antiques Fairs throughout the year. For those with an interest in historic bui...
