PLEASE ALWAYS 'CONTACT OWNER' BEFORE PUSHING THE BOOK BUTTON !!!!!! - I MAY BE IN THE PROCESS OF TAKING ANOTHER BOOKING. All types of payment considered.

My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, so alas no garden of its own. There is however , a sunny south facing terrace in the front to sit out . It is full of character but quite SMALL with low doors and oak beamed ceilings. It is one of the original '2 up, 2 downs' f rom the 1800's and in recent years was modernised and a toilet/shower room added. It has been decorated and furnished in keeping with the period complete with antique furniture, so please do not expect big sumptious sofas . We are restricted by space and aesthetics and want you to enjoy the full experience of history in the ambiance. The newly refurbished kitchen is in Victorian style complete with a butler sink. It is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table. The bathroom is merging Victorian

It is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table. The bathroom is merging Victorian into Art Deco in striking black and white. The living room is cosy, especially when the log fire is blazing away in the grate. To bring us into the 21st century, we can however boast super fast broadband wifi. 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 up to 4 people (max )!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 been problem to find space as usually only residents use the road.

PLEASE ALWAYS CONTACT OWNER BEFORE TRYING TO 'BOOK!!!!'

Further details indoors

Furniture is period and interesting .Please note we have antique seating which may not comply with 21st century comfort expectations! We do however have fibre superfast internet access to bring us into the modern world.

This property is not suitable for children under the age of around 7 years due to the small antique bits and pieces which could be a danger to/endangered by young children.

Further details outdoors

There is a walled garden attached to the cottage but it is privately owned and not for use by the owner or guests. Lovely to look over from the side window.

Location description from owner

The England 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.

Bingham

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.

“Delightful cosy comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2013

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.

“long weekend in bingham”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2011

The cottage is ideally situated for the shops and pub/resturants. Public transport links are extremely good, the town even has a railway station, buses run into Nottingham every 15 minutes. The cottage is pleasant and comfortable for upto 4 people in a quiet situation.

Thank you for leaving us a review - we are pleased you enjoyed your stay!

“Beautiful little place, right on binghams door step”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2011

Great little place as a base for my parents & sister visiting from Australia. They needed some where to stop as my place here in England wasn't big enough for 5 adults. This was perfect as was only down the road from my own place. Everything went smoothly with transfering payment and getting the keys. Both the owner of the property and the lady who looks after it were lovely. Perfect location for walking into Bingham to get little bits & pieces and my parents really liked the chinese restaurant. Parking was good, we were always able to park on the street, which really helped. I even stayed here myself with my parents & sister the night before my wedding and got ready here, the photographer got some lovely shots in the kitchen and lounge room. My parents would love to stay here again when they next visit, they really liked it.

How lovely to see photos from guests staying and especially a wedding!! Thank you for sharing your special day with us. I am so pleased it was suited to everyone. All best and of course ....Congratulations!
