  • "A wonderful stay at Carver's Rest."

    Excellent facilities in an interesting location with lots to see and do within a 10 miles radius. The owners were on hand to offer helpful advice and suggestions for visits, eating out etc. and ensured our every need was catered for. The heating system deserves a special mention for maintaining such a comfortable temperature, daytime and night-time throughout our visit, so much so, we didn't need to take advantage of the lovely woodburner stove. Many thanks for a great stay.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage in a great location."

    The decor is beautiful and it had all the amenities we required for our stay. I used it to stay with my bridal party the night before my wedding so it made the perfect start to the weekend and I would recommend it to any other people getting married at Norwood Park- less than 10 minutes drive in the car away, perfect for the bridal party or for guests to make the most of the weekend!

  • "Lovely, cosy and relaxing."

    Real home from home. Has everything you need and the kitchen so well equipped. We cooked a Christmas dinner with ease. Absolutely great for hosting! The cows next door added to the charm even further. You are in the middle of nowhere yet so close to local towns, great pubs and attractions.

  • "Absolutely loved this place!"

    Carvers Rest is such a fantastic place to stay to escape to, it’s surrounded by beautiful countryside but not too far from the lovely villages of Farnsfield and Southwell. Stunning interiors (pinched a few ideas for home!) with fabulous furnishings and super comfy beds. The kids loved running around the garden and saying hello to Bob the chicken who popped by. The owners are so lovely and helpful and we would definitely recommend visiting the Hills Pop Up Shop at the weekends for delicious meat, cakes and coffee, and The Rustic Crust in Farnsfield for great pizzas and cocktails! The perfect base for exploring Nottinghamshire- Sherwood Forest, GoApe, Clumber Park to make a few. We would love to return to Carvers Rest

The interior offers a sophisticated mix of contemporary styling and natural influences, providing a well-equipped base for families, friends and couples looking to explore the local attractions.

Step inside and pop off your walking gear before following the tiled flooring into the open-plan living space.

At one side rests the amply equipped kitchen, hosting an excellent selection of integrated appliances and utensils to ensure your culinary needs are met, while the French baguette dining table will seat six and be perfect for entertaining.

Spend your evenings unwinding on the corner sofa, tuning into the Smart TV whilst the woodburning stove offers a gentle warmth to the room.

When the night rolls in, retire to either of the king-size bedrooms, with the master room benefitting from an en-suite wet room and combining impressive oak furnishings with original brick mangers, whilst the second bedroom offers a comfortable arrangement with a mix of wooded furniture and modern twists.

Additional sleeping for two can be arranged on the sofa bed in the living area.

Freshen up in the bathroom, fitted to a high standard so you can enjoy a hot bath or shower at the end of an exciting day.

The wrap around garden consists of a well-kept lawn and patio area, perfect for enjoying a barbecue whilst taking in the idyllic farmland views.

If you fancy a night off cooking, then there are a range of friendly local pubs and restaurants in both Farnsfield and Southwell, as well as fresh, local produce found in local shops and at farm gates.

About the location


Newark 9 Miles, Mansfield 13 Miles, Nottingham 15 Miles

Southwell is arguably one of the prettiest towns in Nottinghamshire. Many of Southwell's historic buildings and landmarks suffered during this period, with the Archbishop's Palace and Southwell Minster bearing scars from the conflict as Oliver Cromwell's troops destroyed monuments and graves for lead and other valuable materials. The stunning Southwell Minster is a splendid cathedral with one of the finest Norman naves in Europe and only a stone’s throw from the narrow high street and beautiful pubs. The town played its own role in the English Civil War. Today you can wander the grounds and check out a full programme of living history events, tours and exhibitions. Every year, Southwell plays host to two great music festivals. Gate to Southwell Festival is one of the leading folk events in the country, and as well as impressive headliners each year, visitors can also enjoy street theatre, workshops and traditional performances such as ceilidhs and morris dancing, along with sampling a great selection of fine craft ales and delicious food. Head to the The Refrectory inside Southwell Minster grounds, with magnificent views that can be enjoyed on their patio area while you enjoy their scrumptious tea and cakes! Alternatively, have a wander through Reg Taylor's Garden Centre, which features a sculpture garden, swan sanctuary, gift shop and a lovely tea rooms where you can tuck into a freshly prepared lunch or Sunday Roast.
