  • "This is a beautiful property."

    Despite the best efforts of Storm Babet, we remained high and dry (just), properties in the village did not fair so well. The property was very well appointed, with a lovely kitchen overlooking the river and the fields beyond. The place was spotless, and the owners were very responsive to any communications. This is a great location for accessing Sherwood Forest and beyond, with the Peaks only being a short drive away. Cycling on and off road was excellent too. Recommended!

  • "Perfect weekend away!"

    ! The pictures don’t do this beautiful cottage justice. The views are stunning at sun set and so much to see. The kitchen is so well equipped, we wanted for nothing.

  • "No word of a lie, I have stayed in around 30 holiday rentals - this one was pretty much perfect."

    Not one thing I needed during my stay wasn't provided. The bed alone has made me realise how much I need a new bed at home - was SO comfortable! Sitting by the river with a drink was excellent whether it was sunny or wet. Shops, food and two (very different) pubs within 5 mins walk. If I could live here I would.

  • "We have had a fabulous time at Mill Cottage."

    It is a beautiful comfortable home. This was one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in, usually we pack our own home utensils, hand soap etc but the cottage had everything. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise, not many cottages do this anymore. Very close to the village of Edwinstowe so easy to stroll in to the village. Bith our children were crying when we had to leave they loved it so much. We are already looking to return next year for a holiday.

    Spotlessly clean, very well furbished with just about everything we could possibly need, and a lovely comfortable place to stay in. It has been decorated to a very high standard and lots of lovely and quirky bit added. Very central for what we wanted to do and the outlook was fantastic.

    We found the cottage spotlessly clean with a high standard of furnishings and fittings. The extra touches, welcome basket, books and dvd's (for a rainy day) were much appreciated. I would certainly recommend and hopefully we shall have chance to stay again soon.

  • "Visited Mill cottage for the second time in two months."

    This time to walk the area with family. Cottage was spotlessly clean, well stocked and very comfortable. My sister spent a great deal of time watching the horse, emu and the sheep from the lounge window. A great view thanks to it being an upside down property. Lyn and Steve (the Owners) have a real gem in the middle of Robin Hood country. We’ll worth a visit.

    My daughter and I had a most enjoyable weekend break. Perfectly situated for exploring the area. So peaceful and relaxing just sitting looking out from the lounge to the river and fields beyond. Saw the emu many times but sadly not the kingfisher. However we did have regular visits from a large group of ducks.

    The setting was excellent. There was a lockable shed for us to leave our bicycles overnight. Shops, eateries, bus stops all very nearby. So peaceful sitting by the river watching the kingfisher, wrens and the horses in the field with the Emu. The upside down cottage is well worth the visit.

    Ideal for visiting National Trust properties and other locations within a reasonable area. The property owners seemed to have thought of everything and more. We only had one really wet day, which was Sunday 5th., but we were able to make good use of the many books, dvds and games thoughtfully provided by the owners.

    Well appointed and designed. Upside- down house layout to make the most of the beautiful country and river views. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to sit, on the patio, by the river, but the owners have created a lovely outside space, that can be enjoyed. Mill cottage is on the edge of the village of Edwinstowe. It is an easy walk in to the village, which has a variety of pubs, restaurants, and shops. We found that parking on the lane was no issue for us. The lane was relatively quiet and we managed to park 3 vehicles, without any problem. The communication from the host was amazing. Thank you for a great stay!

  • "Really lovely holiday house, very clean and well equipped with a very countryside feel although the village centre is only 10 min walk away."

    Patio by the river is amazingly calm! Also there’s so much to do within a few miles: Sherwood Pines, Rufford Abbey, Clumber Park, Sherwood Forest visitor centre, Sherwood Forest steam railway are all a short drive (or in some cases a short walk/cycle) away. As a family of four we had a great time and definitely wish we’d stayed for two weeks instead of one; north Notts is a thoroughly under-rated part of the country and this is a fantastic place to enjoy it from.

  • "The cottage was fabulous, it was renovated to a high standard with lovely kitchen and bathrooms."

    it is equipped with so much more than you need. We enjoyed the upsidedown house as it was cooler downstairs for sleeping in the big heatwave we had but also it made great use of the fabulous views of the stream, garden, fields and animals from the living room upstairs. Our son particularly enjoyed the stream where there were lots of fish. The garden is also amazing with a west facing outlook, and lovely shaded area to enjoy the views and alfresco dining. There is a street of independent shops and cafes, and a COOP 5 mins walk away, Sherwood forest is about 10 mins walk so the cottage is in a great position too. All in all a fab relaxing holiday. Owner is there on the other end of the phone if you need them. Perfect. Thank you.

We would have preferred private parking.

A beautifully presented cottage on the edge of Edwinstowe village, with good access to Sherwood Forest and the Peak District National Park.

This semi-detached property has been completely renovated in a reverse-level layout, providing a heart-warming accommodation to return to after a day tracking down Robin Hood and his Merry Men!

Accessed via a gentle ramp to the rear of the property, you enter into the spacious hallway with plenty of room to hang up your jackets and store away your shoes.

Discover the two tastefully furnished bedrooms, including a lavish double with en-suite shower room and a twin, which is serviced by the family bathroom with luxurious roll-top bath.

Head upstairs to find the large sitting room, housing a leather sofa and a multi fuel stove to curl up beside during those colder nights.

Outside is a pretty patio area where you can sit and enjoy a drink whilst listening to the river flow by and if lucky king fishers, the property also has fishing rights to the river.

There is also an enclosed area which offers a secure spot for children to play without access to the water.

The property has a nearby Trekking center which offers stabling and parking for a horse box, this is to be booked in advanced by contacting the owner for more details.

Mill Cottage is just a short walk to the village of Edwinstowe where you can browse a variety of shops and eateries, as well as a butcher’s, bakers and a supermarket.

Sherwood Forest and the visitor’s centre can also be found within walking distance from the centre of Edwinstowe, offering excellent cycle routes and paths, whilst Clumber Park and Rufford Park boast beautiful grounds to explore.

With plenty to see and do in the area, Mill Cottage would make for an excellent retreat, any time of year.
