About Victoria Searle

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.

Why Victoria Searle chose Newark

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.

What makes this bungalow unique

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.

A cosy retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Milking Parlour over the New Year and were particularly pleased to find the accommodation lovely and warm on our arrival.

The Milking Parlour is well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay.

The village of Norwell is well placed for visits to Newark and the surrounding area.

Thanks to Vicky for her help and for making our stay such a pleasure.

This property is a 'studio' set-up (ie bed, living room and dining area all in the same space) with separate kitchen and shower room, ideal for 2 people, well equipped, spacious and very cosy. Dogs are accepted - we stayed with 2 dogs (small). Owner lives in adjacent house and was friendly and helpful when we were booking and staying there. Plenty to do in the area. Pub is right next door and serves good food.

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.

Further Details:

Norwell is a beautiful, un-spoilt village with a shop that hosts an outreach post office on a Monday and Thursday morning. The village pub is a real hit with guests, serving a good pint and good food.

We have some very good places to eat near by, for example 'Newfield Dairy Ice Cream Parlour' and 'The Caunton Beck Gastro Pub'.

The local town of Newark has a wide range of shops, banks as well as a M&S, Waitrose, Asda and Morrisons and plenty of well priced restaurants and cafes. Southwell also has a large co-op offering a good range and has some lovely cafes and a ‘Southwell Heritage Walk’.

We also have an Indian Restaurant only five minutes drive away, they also do take away food.

The owner is happy to help you plan your stay and make suggestions of local places to visit to help plan your stay.

Our nearest Supermarket is either Tesco in Ollerton or Waitrose / Asda or Morrisons in Newark.

Newark has branches of most banks.
