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.
