  • "We had a lovely week at the cottage."

    The furnishings fixtures and fittings are all of high quality. Beautiful kitchen with all modern appliances. Very comfortable lounge with a great smart TV and log burner. Beds extremely comfortable. We visited numerous National Trust properties along with Belvoir Castle. Good shopping facilities in nearby Bingham. We have stayed in many holiday cottages throughout the country, Scotland and Ireland this cottage is one of the best.

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at 2 Pailing Cottages! We renovated this cottage with the idea of wanting it to feel like a true luxury getaway and wanted everything to be high quality for our guests (and ourselves!) So happy to hear that you loved it as much as we do. Property Owner

The property

A charming semi-detached double fronted cottage tucked away in a quiet backwater at the heart of this popular edge of Vale village with the village pub and local farm fresh shop with household sundries just a short walk away.

This holiday home enjoys an enclosed garden to spend an afternoon sipping tea and private parking for one car.

The property is decorated fully in Farrow & Ball, offering a charming interior to spend your time and the bathroom, dining room, and living room have dimmable lights for a relaxed atmosphere.

Step inside to discover the sitting room; here you can unwind in front of the Smart TV with Sky as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Locate the shaker-style kitchen/diner, hosting an electric oven and induction hob to prepare heart-warming meals and a dishwasher to do the cleaning up for you!

Gather at the rustic table to enjoy mealtimes together; afterwards why not relish a moment of relaxation in the upstairs bathroom in the extra deep Villeroy & Boch soaking bathtub?

There is ambient front and back outdoor lighting for when you fancy sitting outside after sunset before you hit the sheets.

When sleep calls, choose between two well-presented bedrooms to rest your head, with a super-king-size (zip/link) and a king-size, with bedside lamps for a nighttime read.

Both bedrooms offer Hypnos mattresses so you can look forward to climbing into bed after an action-packed day.

In the morning, begin your day with a wash in the luxury rainfall shower system before savouring a home-cooked breakfast, courtesy of the kitchen appliances.

Head out on foot, where your private road will lead you to a pub with a beer garden and a well-stocked convenience store to pick up some treats.

History buffs may wish to jump in the car to visit the 19th century Belvoir Castle with its quintessential Engine Yard Retail and tour the National Trust sites of Grantham House and Belton House, boasting grand interiors.

Visit the city of Nottingham for a great selection of attractions, including the Museum of Nottingham Life, Cave Escape Nottingham and Highfields Park, which is home to a quaint boating lake.

Sherwood Forest is easily accessible offering fun for all the family with Go Ape and the Adrenaline Jungle as is the National Water Sports Centre.

Venture into the city of Leicester, hosting an array of restaurants and shops to suit all budgets, as well as its gothic cathedral to absorb the history.

For a relaxing break to Nottinghamshire, consider 2 Pailing Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

The quaint, English village of Aslockton rests on the north banks of the River Smite in the county of Nottinghamshire. There is a train station to venture into exciting cities and nearby are fishing ponds for a scenic spot. The village is home to The Cranmer Arms for when you fancy a cold beverage in a beer garden and bar nibbles. Stock up on the essentials at the independent convenience shop, The Larder @ Aslockton or head into the town of Bingham for a selection of supermarkets. Just outside the village is Cotgrave Country Park to spot wonderful wildlife and the tranquil Skylarks Nature Reserve. Aslockton provides regular bus services and a railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham, from Grantham high speed trains to London. There is also a church and village hall, local playground and excellent sports facilities with cricket and football pitches as well as all-weather tennis courts at the Aslockton Tennis Club. Additional amenities can be found in the nearby market town of Bingham and the village is convenient for the A52 and A46 which provide good road access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester, the A1 and M1. Visit the bustling city of Nottingham to meander around the ancient Nottingham Castle and soak in the culture with a tour around quirky exhibitions at Nottingham Contemporary.
