Situated in the pretty farming village of Norwell, Schoolhouse Farm Holiday Lets have excellent walking and cycling from your door. Norwell has a Village Shop and ‘The Plough Pub’; both are a short walk from the property. The village of Norwell is approximately 7.5 miles from the beautiful Market Town of Newark, with a lovely range of shops, cafes and antique shops. It is also 10 miles from the picturesque Minster town of Southwell. Sherwood Forest, Rufford Abbey, Clumber Park and Belton House are within a 30 minute radius.
Victoria and Jamie live in the farmhouse next to the Barn, Jamie is in the property development trade and decided to convert the barn into a luxurious holiday let, renovated and furnished to the highest standard whilst retaining the true character and features if the grade II listed building. Having stayed in a few holiday cottages we decided not to cut corners and to provide our guests with a comfortable, welcoming stay.
Norwell is a beautiful village with a real 'back in time' feel. It is a quiet village, and the shop and the pub are brilliant, meaning that you don't have to go far if you don't want to.
You really can do as much or as little as you like whilst on holiday in the barn; from staying in the village and exploring the local footpaths to getting on the A1 in only 5 minutes and going on a day trip.
For weekly stays check in is on a Friday.
Warm Welcome by Victoria and James Searle.

This property , the barn, is an incredible place to stay. We were here for almost 2 weeks and it has everything you need for a relaxed stay. Vicky is a fabulous host, offering helpful advice about the area attractions that might be worth a visit. My wife and myself would not hesitate to stop here again, or recommend that others do so
My husband is from the UK and lived in the midlands when he was young; so we were thrilled to find this rental to come back and visit family and friends nearby. The barn is just lovely and Vicky and her family were so helpful and nice. We had a wonderful visit and will be coming back again. The space is beautifully decorated, the kitchen is stocked for cooking, it's a quiet and relaxing space, and the town is such a pleasure to visit.
Fabulous week in the Milking Parlour. Excellent high standard accommodation, beautiful rural village setting with great pub and village shop. Lots to do in the area, would love to return. Can't recommend highly enough. Thank you Vicky and Jamie for a wonderful week's stay.
We had a wonderful time in Norwell. All helped by staying in an extremely comfortable, well equipped, warm and beautifully renovated barn. Well situated for our visits to local attractions Clumber Park, Southwell and Sherwood Forest. The owner was both friendly and hospitable even going so far as to provide a welcome chocolate cake! We'll be back.
What a wonderful barn, clean, modern & everything you would want for a short or long stay. Owner is extremely helpful, friendly & unobstrusive.
Would definitely recommend

London Kings Cross to Newark Northgate Station takes approximately 1 hour 30 mins by train and then a 15 minute taxi ride from Newark Northgate to Norwell.
Use of a car would be recommended but there is a great village shop and pub so it would not be essential.
