The property

Resting in the pretty village of Norwell in rural Nottinghamshire, is this quaint, 16th-century home, Auld Cottage.

Boasting character in combination with modern features, such as the eco friendly air source heat pump, this cottage is a lovely base for two couples or a family seeking a relaxing pursuit, with lots of historical landmarks, rolling countryside and attractive towns to explore.

The ground floor of Auld Cottage is finished with quarry style tiles with underfloor heating, ensuring a toasty feel throughout.

Be welcomed into the delightful sitting room, where a woodburning stove sits with an original recess, and a sumptuous sofa and TV is perfect for an evenings entertainment.

Tongue and groove style doors lead into the kitchen/diner, where a range master stove commands the kitchen appliances, with a centre dining table offering delightful mealtime moments.

Climb the beautiful oak staircase to the first floor and discover two attractive bedrooms, each with double beds and served by a contemporary shower room with sleek tiling and a walk-in shower enclosure.

Get to know your surroundings better by venturing on a leisurely stroll through the village, home to a modest selection of amenities including a local pub, The Plough, and a convenience store, where you can pick up any essentials.

Explore further and join the Trent Valley Way, a long-distance walking path which is perfect for those keen ramblers, with a wealth of wildlife to spot along the way and a charming scenery to admire.

Just over eight mile away lies the town of Newark-on-Trent, where you can embrace the rich local history as you tour the imposing establishment of Newark Castle and Gardens, and wander the galleries of the local museum.

The stunning minster town of Southwell is also worth a visit, home to an architectural jewel that is the Mister church, boasting some of the finest medieval stone carving in England.

If you fancy a chance of scenery, visit the city of Lincoln where you can sample a range of excellent eateries and shopping facilities, along with some fabulous attractions such as the Victorian prison and castle and the Guildhall and Stonebow, an early 16th-century town building which forms an archway over the main High Street.

The delights of Sherwood Forest are also waiting to be explored, home to a growing series of walks and trails, along with many seasonal events to suit all tastes.

For a wonderful holiday to Nottinghamshire, consider Auld Cottage.
