A wonderful romatic retreat awaits for couples, within this converted dovecote barn with modern stylish finish within a pretty village surrounded by miles of countryside.

Clear your mind with long walks along canals and footpaths from this peaceful rural retreat in north Nottinghamshire. Set on a working farm in Gringley on the Hill, it bristles with country life. Couples or solo travellers and their beloved four-legged companion can combine outdoor adventures with relaxing pitstops in canine-welcoming pubs and cafes. And you can even practise your downward-facing dog in the on-site yoga studio, which also offers a range of holistic treatments.

Inside the cottage, exposed beams and brickwork showcase the original character of this converted bird house, while contemporary home comforts bring it right up to date. The open-plan living space is decorated in neutral tones, giving it a bright and airy feel. Your dog can curl up in her dog basket while you put your feet up to watch TV. The kitchen has all the basics you need to cook up hearty meals during your stay, or you may prefer a stroll to the local dog-friendly pub, less than half a mile from the cottage. Upstairs, the bedroom has an en-suite shower room and a pretty window seat for perching with a good book.

Being in a central location, there’s plenty to keep you and your pet occupied in this part of the world. Clumber Park (18 miles) welcomes dogs in all outdoor areas, and even has a dedicated indoor space where your furry friend can take the weight off her paws after a long walk. Daneshill Lakes nature reserve (8 miles) has some lovely trails to explore that offer an abundance of wildlife. Also not to be missed is Sherwood Forest (22 miles), where you can follow in the legendary footsteps of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had an enjoyable stay. The accommodation is very nice, clean, and has charm. We both had a massage with Karyn which was very good. Gringley on the Hill is a lovely spot and we enjoyed walking in the village and on the recommended walks. A number of recommended walks are available to follow and are very helpfully laminated.

We really enjoyed our stay in the Dovecote. It is nicely situated and perfect for a quieter holiday. We arrived to find some very nice treats. The apartment is perfect for couples. The owners have prepared a number of local walks of varying lengths so its very easy to discover the local area without any effort at all. The local pub does good beer aRead morend food and is a few minutes walk away. Hide

A superbly converted dovecote highlighting original features. Fresh scones and jam after a long journey made a lovely welcome to this immaculately clean and comfortable property in a beautiful village. We enjoyed excellent canal walks and loved the peaceful atmosphere in Gringley on the Hill.

This is a lovely place to stay in a beautiful, peaceful and very friendly village. The Dovecote has been very thoughtfully converted to a high standard with underfloor heating and quality fittings and furniture. There is a large walk-in shower in the ensuite and a very comfortable bed. Good Wi-Fi too! The surrounding countryside is beautiful and weRead more can recommend the local walks shown in the guides in the cottage. The owner is very welcoming and friendly and we would come and stay again.

A beautiful warm extremely well equipped cottage. Perfect for a week for two people. A very friendly welcome from the owner who has thought of everything that could be required. Homemade scones on arrival, a bottle of wine in the fridge we instantly felt at home.
