  • "Lovely cottage, well equipped."

    Looked after well by the host.

  • "There is parking behind the house for a car which is behind a large wooden gate."

    This is extremely stiff and I caught my hand between the metal pull and the gate post crushing it badly. This should be looked at - 5 adults staying and we all found this very difficult. We are work colleagues so having no locks on the bathroom doors a bit of a draw back, especially since the upstairs door doesn't shut without slamming it, and disturbing the person in the adjacent room. The fridge door also doesn't shut (we have a bit of an issue with all the doors!) without lifting up first. Otherwise, the house is great, the host was lovely and very thoughtful, and there were a lot of goodies left for us, which was very kind and much appreciated.

    Thanks for the points made, especially about staying with work colleagues. (This was previously a family home). All issues resolved. Locks now on bathroom doors. Problematic doors / gate now adjusted for ease of opening, closing. Glad you loved the house and appreciated the hosts attention. Property Owner

  • "My friends, little ones and furry friend had a lovely weekend at this cottage."

    It has everything you need. It is cosy and has a lot to offer within short drives. The village itself is mainly residential but it is not a problem. I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this area. Emily and co.

The property

Tivoli is a delightful, detached property resting in the village of Elkesley, ideal for a group of friends or a family looking for a getaway to Nottinghamshire.

Be welcomed by this picturesque abode, and settle into one of the sitting rooms on offer, each with stylish sofas, a TV, and the ambient glow of a woodburning stove from the feature wall.

When mealtimes call, discover a tasteful kitchen with a touch of opulence, housing many home-from-home amenities to cater to your culinary needs, where you can enjoy a hearty meal in the dining room.

Alternatively, venture outside into the enclosed patio garden and dine alfresco with a glass of your favourite beverage as you reflect on the day's adventures.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the bathroom with a soak in the roll-top bathtub, before cosying up into one of the four well-presented bedrooms, comprising two king-size, one of which has the added benefit of an en-suite shower room, and two additional doubles.

Elkesley is a quaint village settled beside the River Poulter, with easy access to the A1, a local convenience store for all of your holiday essentials, and a local pub, The Cave Bar, open at weekends during the summer.

The village is close to Retford, where there are more shops and pubs, as well as Idle Valley Nature Reserve, ideal for a spot of birdwatching.

Close by is Clumber Park a National Trust historic country park and Sherwood Forest Country Park, the legendary home of Robin Hood.

Further from the property guests can visit the historic ruins of Rufford Abbey or walk through Cresswell Crags, an extraordinary archaeological park.

For a day shopping, watching a football match or dining out at the many restaurants and bars, Elkesley is an ideal position to reach Lincoln, Nottingham or Sheffield.

All of this and so much more with a stay at the lovely Tivoli.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
