Excellent break

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome and with a thorough explanation of the facilities. The property reflects a high standard of cleanliness, cheerfulness, and technology that meets all visitors' needs. We especially liked the adjustable bed which made evening reading a delight and the ease of car parking. The location is lovely for a short break with good walking opportunities with being close to Sherwood Forest and several National Trust properties. The extra bonus was some lovely pubs that serve delicious food at affordable prices and supermarkets nearby.

Accessible Barn

Beautifully presented property to a very high standard. We were only the second people to stay there so everything was new and pristine. We had a comfortable and relaxing week's stay. The owners are very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit.

A house you could live in!

  • 5 of 5

This is beautiful rural property and the photos do not do it justice. All was clean and well maintained. We stayed here from the US visiting the many family and friends we have in the area and specifically for my mother's 80th birthday. This house made a wonderful base for our stay. We hosted a largish (30) family bbq in the lovely lawned garden and a couple of other smaller get togethers with friends and family. We were only 6 staying in the house but all had plenty of room. We were very fortunate to be staying at the end of May when the weather cooperated with our vision of a bbq, but had it rained we could have moved indoors to the downstairs space and still been comfortable.

The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. The bathrooms (both upstairs) were modern and well finished. There is a separate downstairs loo with hand basin, which was useful for guests and my 80 yr-old mum.

The owners were always on hand should there be a question or something needed, they were the perfect hosts bringing over a garden umbrella one time when we were sitting outside in the sun - yes, it really was hot when we were there!

Locally, there is a pub a short walk away, which was fine for a drink and a snack. We had a fabulous lunch not far away in Laxton at the Dovecote Inn and a lovely walk round the village there. There are walks from the house across the local fields and down to the church. The larger village of Ollerton (3 miles) has a really good butcher's shop on the main street, plus a large Tesco supermarket with everything you might need.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others or to use it again ourselves should we be travelling with all our children again.

Great House and Lovely Welcome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend to attend a family wedding in Sherwood Forest.

We were greeted by Steve, who was very friendly and helpful. We were shown around and then left to our own devices - perfect.

The house is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Any queries we had were answered by Steve and Val who were most helpful.

The grounds were beautiful and the children loved the fact that they were able to visit the horses and chickens each day.

The extra little touches were superb - a vase of fresh cut flowers, a bottle of wine and a friendly personal welcome message on the fridge door - superb!

I would recommend this as a place to stay without hesitation and will definitely return if I ever need to stay in the area again.

Fantastic house and welcoming owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Homestead on 6 April for 2 nights with a group of 12 adults and 2 children. We had a fantastic stay - the house was well equipped, cosy and immaculate. The owners were very friendly and helpful and after a tour of the property left us to get on and enjoy our stay. It's a perfect location for getting to Sherwood Pines Go Ape! which is just up the road. I would recommend this property and am even planning on returning for a reunion party in 2014!
