    “Amazing property.”

    I've recommended it to so many people. If you're looking for something unique this is it. We're going through a really stressful time at the moment and this place had such a calming effect. ...

    I've recommended it to so many people. If you're looking for something unique this is it. We're going through a really stressful time at the moment and this place had such a calming effect. It is like living in an Art studio/museum but in a really great way. You feel comfortable staying there and its been very well thought out. I'd love to see it in the various seasons, I'm not artistic at all but I've been raving about the light at different times of day. The owners are in the other part of the property but this isn't intrusive in any way. You might see them to wave across the water but that was all. We've rarely gone back to the same property twice but i absolutely would here.

The property

Originally built over 160 years ago, The Pump House Art Studio is a special and unique, Grade II* listed property.

Formerly a working pump house, used to drain excess water from the The Mother Drain, dug in 1790, into The River Idle, it has been transformed into a stunning, contemporary art studio and holiday let.

Settled in the village of Misterton in northern Nottinghamshire, The Pump House Art Studio is one of two identical buildings, named by the Victorians Kate and Ada, one being the owners' home, each with dramatic chimney stacks and connected by a beautiful glass walkway over the water.

Follow the rural country lane up to the property and admire the scenic surroundings before parking up and entering into the beautiful living space - be impressed by huge windows flooding the area with light, dramatic high ceilings and an array of stylish furniture to relax on, surrounded by fantastic artwork by the owners and other local artists.

Enjoy watching TV, quirkily propped up by an easel, whilst lounging on the long sofa, or sit at the impressive dining table as you plan your next adventures.

The property is full of interesting items and furnishings, as well as a vintage press sitting beneath the mezzanine.

Discover a wonderfully styled kitchen with grey subway tiling where you can get creative with the array of cooking appliances, with a unique breakfast bar island to perch at and pop open a bottle of fizz to toast to your fabulous escape.

Enjoy peaceful moments in the library, with two plush seats to relax in and a large window offering views over the water.

A further tranquil living space can be found up on the first-floor mezzanine, featuring rustic timber beams, an original arched window and further beautiful seating.

Settle down in one of two double bedrooms where the décor continues to impress, both served by a sleek and fully tiled bathroom.

Enjoy spending time out in the well-kept garden, whether alfresco dining at the outdoor patio furniture or sunbathing on the lawn.

Take a stroll down into the village of Misterton to discover all you need for your self-catered stay, including a Co-op, several takeaways, a great fish and chip shop and a pub, or amble off road along The River Idle to The Haxey Inn for the Sunday carvery.

The surrounding area is a wonderful haven for walkers with lots of countryside to explore and walks along The Idle and The Chesterfield Canal.

Yards away from your front door is The River Idle and its surrounds with an abundance of great British wildlife including kingfishers, buzzards, owls, heron, woodpecker, moorhen and numerous birds; as well as deer, foxes and badgers!

The Art Studio is sited directly on a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) - Head down to Idle Valley Nature Reserve to admire the striking wetland scenery.

Head for the medieval city of Lincoln to see the incredible cathedral and adjacent castle, or perhaps visit The International Bomber Command Centre and memorial if you are interested in WWII history.

Or for excitement there's the big cats at The Yorkshire Wildlife Park or Doncaster Races, home of The St.Leger Festival.

Delight in peaceful afternoons on the green at Thornock Park golf course, attend a riding class at the local equestrian centre, or stay closer to home and spend time fishing on the stretch of the River Idle which the owners have rights to.

Enjoy the wonderful countryside surroundings on your relaxing escape to the historic, Grade II* listed wonder that is The Pump House Art Studio.
