Within the grounds of Newstead Abbey Park, the 200 year old Granary is a stunning high specification recent conversion with many original features. If you only require 2 bedrooms (twin and double) a lesser price is available, if we shut off a bedroom. Similarly the day rate is reduced if you book more than the minimum number of days, please specify this in your details and I will amend the quoted price the site gave you. You can still pay on-line after I have amended the automatic quote with the reduced price if you prefer. As the direct on-line booking quote can't deal with this reduced price.
