Key Info
  • Suitable for children over
  • Car advised
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, although sadly no garden but there is a sunny south facing terrace in the front to sit out . It is therefore full of character but quite SMALL with low doors and oak beamed ceilings. It is one of the original '2 up, 2 downs' from around 1800 and in recent years was modernised and a small toilet/shower room added. It has been decorated and furnished in keeping with the period complete with some antique furniture so is not be suitable for small children. You do actually sense the history in the ambiance. The newly refurbished kitchen is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table and the living room cosy, especially when the log fire is blazing away in the grate. Situated in a little no-thru road literally just off the main centre and market square of Bingham, it is quiet but a great base for the local shops and easy access to Nottingham. Fine for 4 people (max )if not to tall!!

The cottage is just a 20 minute drive or bus ride away from legendry Nottingham ( Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest etc). On foot the centre of Bingham is just 3 minutes walk with all facilities including a library and doctor's surgery. There are supermarkets (late opening), hairdressers, florists, banks, bakers and butchers and many restaurants and of course superb Fish and Chips! At the top of the road is a Leisure centre with swimming pool. On Thursdays there is a market in the square. Bingham is rurally situated amongst fields and small villages. There is free parking outside the cottage - its never a problem to find a space as only residents use the road.

The Heart of England/Peak District

Well Robin Hood country of course. The logs for the fireplace come from Nottingham Forest. Nottingham of course, possesses the evocative 11th century castle - erected by William the Conqueror and rebuilt by the Duke of Newcastle in the 18th century – and has surprises round every corner. A combination of the old and new, the city is a major seat of learning, an industrial giant and a place of ancient buildings. and surrounding lace market boasts the oldest inn in England ‘Trip to Jerusalem’, which is hewn into a rock. Modern Nottingham is thronging with nightlife and restaurants with some of the biggest national companies based there and two large universities.

On offer also is a litany of enthralling museums. It was always a prosperous market town but in the 18th century its population increased fivefold as its hosiery and lace industries boomed thanks to steam-powered machinery.

Beneath its bustling streets is a remarkable labyrinth of more than 400 man-made caves. These have been transformed into a series of living museums, including old-time shops and a Victorian slum.

In recent times the city has been home to world-acclaimed industries, from Raleigh, the bicycle maker, to John Player, the cigarette manufacturer, and Boots the Chemist, founded by locally-born Jesse Boot.

Its modern name derives from an Anglo-Saxon chieftain called Snot - hence Snotingham!

A ‘must-see’ for admirers of great literature is the former home of the prolific novelist D. H. Lawrence who was born in 1885 in the coal mining town of Eastwood, the son of an illiterate miner and a schoolmistress. His house, at 8a Victoria Street, is one of the county’s most interesting museums.


Small market town nestling in the countryside but only 20 mins drive to Nottingham and less to Newark. The old town of Lincoln can be reached to the North and Derby to the South. If you wish to stray further afield you could reach the famous cobbled town of York or walk round the stunning architecture of Cambridge. There are many pretty villages around in which to walk or cycle and maybe a pub lunch. How about the cricket at Trentbridge? There are trains to the seaside or maybe you would like the caves in Derbyshire. In Bingham itself the local pubs do good food by big open fireplaces or visit one of the many restaurants. The market is on Thursdays and the leisure centre is always a good all weather alternative to a bike ride. There are many outlying natural areas of beauty and protected bird life.

"A lovely and very comfortable cottage"

We have spent a very enjoyable week in Rosehip cottage: it is located in a very quiet street (not a single noise at night!) , the neighbours are friendly and helpful.The cottage is small but has every… More

Thank you very very much for your review and I will pass on your thanks to our wonderful caretaker!!

A quiet night is guaranteed as the road, although just off the main village centre, is not frequented much at night other than the odd neighbour walking their dog. Hard to imagine so much buzz in the village centre during the day.

Looking forward to your return next year.

All very best wishes

"I hope we could come back one day"

We recently booked this cottage for our first ever trip to Nottinghamshire. We found a very well decorated, clean, tidy, and well equipped Cottage. It is, also, well situated in a quiet “cul de sac… More

"Lovely stay in Bingham"

We stayed in Rosehip cottage for a month upon our first time visit in Nottingham. We had a very unique experience when we stayed in the cottage. The place is a little bit small yet everything that you… More

So pleased the local Pork pies went down well. They will be from Melton Mowbray just a short distance away and Nationally known for their pies.
Yes, its a great little market selling useful things for the home, wild game, greetings cards, plants...wonderful!
It seems our new kitchen went down well despite the small space. It is a very old cottage and in days gone by, a family of 8 would have lived there. I guess we are all spoilt for space these days !

"Just lovely"

We so enjoyed our time in the cottage, although we were out and about a lot visiting all sorts of places close by, we found time for a morning cuppa at the lovely frontage and watch the world go by.Pe… More

Just lovely to hear from you too! I am so pleased you mentioned the terrace as when I am there, I am just like you, watching the world go by with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Its such a quiet little street that the neighbours are indeed inclined to greet and chat and more than once I have had one hop up on the terrace to have a glass with me! I have worked hard at recreating a decor somewhat in keeping with the age of the cottage so was pleased to hear you appreciated that. I used to be an antique dealer so was lucky to have found some super bits and pieces on my travels. I wish you a safe journey back to Oz.

"Sufficiently pleasant, cottage feel all over"

Good location, nice village and getting around the midlands is quit easy from Bingham. Clean, everything you need, warm welcome by caretaker. Feedback from owner was quick. It's not a 4 star hote… More

Indeed we are not a 4* Hotel - thank goodness! How impersonal and how expensive that would be! The bathroom is, however, like a Hotel Bathroom so small and needs to be juggled for 4 people, as we say in advert. Most people have fun and enjoy this challenge, so all bodes well as its so much cheaper than 4 people in a Hotel. Our caretaker and neigbours enjoyed meeting you and I was glad to hear of all your trips out. Thanks so much for leaving feedback.

"Wonderful, pretty cottage, a delight to stay there"

My daughter and I spent a few days here early March and it was absolutely wonderful. The cottage was cosy and warm and really clean and lovely. It was so nice having the log fire which made evenings… More

Thank you for leaving such a prompt and indeed glowing review! I am almost blushing. I trust it helped your daughter with her recuperation and that you found the proximity of shops etc. an added advantage.
We hope you will visit again.

"Delightful cosy comfortable cottage"

This is now our third stay in this delightful cottage. It is so clean and cosy and comfortable, we just keep coming back. All my family commented on how lovely it is to stay in. It's 2 minutes walk from the centre of Bingham with excellent shops and restaurants. There are buses every few minutes to Nottingham, and a railway station, and of course easy parking in the quiet road directly outside the front door. It's lovely to have linen and towels provided and for the fuel to be inclusive – it makes it so much easier. Booking and paying was easy, and both owner and caretaker are easily contactable.

Lovely to hear, and indeed its delightful to have you keep coming back. Most important - the family like it!. Very pleased to hear it suits you so well and we look forward to the next time.
