  • "We stayed at Cheriton whilst visiting the area for a family wedding."

    It was the perfect base and had everything we could possibly need. There was an issue with the plumbing which the owners warned us about and it didn't really cause us a problem. Our car broke down while we were there and they kindly allowed us to stay a couple of hours longer until the AA could get us going again.

    Thank you for the feedback hope you have car free problems now enjoy the rest of the summer Property Owner

  • "This accommodation was a working holiday for me and my two dogs."

    Wifi was perfect. Large dining table perfect to accommodate PC & folders. Plenty of electric heaters, hot water, all cleaning products too! A welcome food pack was also provided. 1 minute walk from very small town but was adequate. 1 minute walk to farm road to let dogs off lead - they didnt enjoy this one though. There was a decent park a few miles away in next town - Thetford i think. 10 min easy drive and park right outside. If i had known this was there, i d have gone there every day. Beautiful park and can let dogs off lead - there is a stream though. Garden was flat and great - totally enclosed. If i could wish for one thing, it would have been for an electric security flood light out the back - so i could see the dogs

  • "A lovely spacious holiday home, everything you need is provided inc linen & towels ."

    The garden is a good size and totally secure for dogs too. There’s plenty to do within 20 minutes drive if you don’t want to venture too far. There’s two shops, a pub and three takeaways, the chippy is good and rubys pizza is ok too . If you’re vegan then it’s not tok difficult to eat here but it’s not too ofvthe lust but we did manage take away and the carpenters arms in walesby is vegan friendly. Rufford abbey and and climber park are worth visiting only 12 miles and are dog friendly too . Also ollerton out woods is 5 miles away which is good for waking the dogs . All in all most places easily accessible, a quiet little village with a relaxed atmosphere. Our hosts were excellent and we wanted for nothing 10 out of 10 .

    so glad you had such a positive stay and were able to relax with you dogs Hope you enjoy the rest of summer ,and any future holidays match up to your experience with us Kind regards Diane and Dave Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely 3 day stay at Cheriton!"

    The welcome milk and biscuits was lovely and the information pack couldn’t have had more information! The rooms were great, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and the garden was fab for our dog, secure and a great size. We took our 10 month old and they owners left out a cot, highchair and there was a stair gate at the bottom too, which was brilliant for peace of mind with our little mover. The village had lots in walking distance and a great range of takeaways for the holiday treat. We’ve said we will definitely return Thanks for a lovely holiday

    We are so glad you enjoyed it and made some lovely happy family memories Enjoy the summer Best wishes Diane and Dave Property Owner

    The information folder was very helpful, and when we needed to contact Diane the owner, she was quick to respond, and most kind. In the folder she recommended some local places to visit, eateries etc, and we had a great time following her recommendations. A lovely stay!

  • "The property was very well equipped."

    The garden was large and secure for our dogs. The owner telephoned on the morning of our arrival to say the house was ready and we could arrive early, which gave us half a day extra. There was a very generous welcome pack.

  • "Outstanding help and support from the owners arranging this break at very short notice."

    The house was immaculately clean and well prepared for our arrival. Lovely touches with welcome pack and note on arrival. This was a beautiful well appointed house with a wonderful secure garden for our dog, and fitted with good quality furniture. Although the internet was not working on arrival, it was fixed on our 5th day. Only minor complaint would be that duvets were too heavy for summertime and mattress not very comfortable (i.e.double too hard). Seems a shame to make these small negative comments as the house is great. Would certainly be happy to return.

About the location


Retford 7.3 miles; Newark-on-Trent 14 miles; Lincoln 17.5 miles.

Tuxford is an old coaching town found in the north of Nottinghamshire, situated between the bustling towns of Newark and Retford. The quaint village was once a hub for travellers and boasted four railway stations, with the St Nicholas Church being the oldest building the town, dating back to the 12th century. Today, it is a great destination for tourists due to its variety of independent shops and attractions. Some of the highlights include a large, working windmill which is open to visitors daily, the Walks of Life handcart museum, which chronicles the history of the town on wheels and the Sally Mitchell Art Gallery and which is set in a wonderful 18th century Posting Inn. As well as the fine art gallery, which has ongoing exhibitions of sporting equestrian and canine art from internationally renowned artists, the Heritage award-winning museum is packed with unusual equestrian items spanning from 600 BC to the 20th Century. The popular Sherwood Forest and City of Lincoln are both easily accessible, proving to be an excellent base for holidaymakers and adventure seekers.
