Nestled in the Nottinghamshire countryside, on Hall Farm in Shelton near Long Bennington, is this rustic semi-detached barn conversion, Dairy Cottage.

This open-plan all-ground-floor property has been equipped for those with limited mobility and is surrounded by a wonderful rural vista, making this a lovely setting for a group of four wanting to escape the busyness of life.

Handy off-road parking for two cars greets you on arrival, take a moment to relish the peace and quiet on the lawn in front of the property, before ascending the ramp into your home-from-home.

You will be delighted to immediately come across a bright and welcoming open-plan living space with original features of the barn and toasty underfloor heating, where ample leather seating awaits you in front of the TV.

After watching a film in the sitting area, progress through to the well-presented kitchen, boasting fabulous white fittings and a wealth of appliances, including a washing machine and dishwasher!

Gather your group and enjoy a meal in the charming dining area and make plans for your expeditions.

In the evening, wander down the corridor to find two pleasant king-size bedrooms, both featuring exposed beams and ample storage, one with an en-suite cloakroom.

The second bedroom leads to a decked area; enjoy alfresco dining in the sun and savour those countryside views.

The spacious wet room is a great spot for getting ready, it's well-equipped and contains supportive handrails throughout.

You will find your amenities in the village of Long Bennington, grab your essentials at the shops and stop for a pint at the Royal Oak, before going birdwatching in Muston Meadows and enjoying an entertaining costumed tour around Belvoir Castle.

Venture to the town of Newark-on-Trent and stroll through Newark Castle's gardens, before enjoying a riverside picnic by the River Trent, or trying your hand at angling in Balderton Lake.

Travel south to Grantham and spot the wildlife in the Hills and Hollows, learn about the town's history in Grantham Museum, or visit Belton House and view the deer that have made its grounds their home.

For a unique day out, visit Nottingham and enjoy a tour through the fascinating City of Caves, or watch fantastic live entertainment at Rock City, or for more attractions, be sure to travel to the bustling cathedral city of Lincoln.
