Rosehip cottage, Nottingham
About the home
My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, although sadly no garden but there is a sunny 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 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 / Nottinghamshire region
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.
The Bingham area
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.
