Why Mrs. Jean Townsend chose Newark & Sherwood

Ostlers Cottage is a superb conversion from stable and Victorian servants accommodation. We are in our 5th year of highly successful trading as a holiday cottage business.Our reviews consistently rate 9.5 or 10 and we have a long list of delighted guests; business customers as well as holiday makers return here each year. Our business ethic is to be the best; to have delighted customers every time.

What makes this cottage unique

Ostlers Cottage is situated on a 32 acre farm on a quiet country lane, less than 2 miles from the main A1. Apart from sheep residing in nearby fields, the farm is non-working. So if it's absolute peace and quiet, a lovely property, easy access to a wealth of interesting events,towns, cities, and National Trust properties then Ostlers Cottage is for you. I look forward to seeing you soon. Jean.
