Retford, Nottinghamshire, England
We are in a quiet village location surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the River Trent. Stable Cottage was originally a block of 3 stables that has been converted into a beautiful 2 bedroom holiday cottage. It's interior has a vintage / shabby chic look and is light and spacious. There is a 'secret garden' for your sole use during your stay which is perfect for al fresco dining. There is off road parking just outside the cottage. Open the patio doors in the kitchen and again, you have your own private space for dining or a chilled glass of wine! There are 2 bedrooms (one double and one single). Heating is by thermostatically controlled radiators in each room. The lounge is spacious and light, the cupboard under the TV/DVD has a selection of books and games for you to use during your stay.

Have just returned from a three night stay at Stable Cottage. Simon and Debbie were friendly from the moment I booked online to the moment we left the cottage. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was immaculately clean and the garden...More

We had an excellent break in this beautiful house. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and really went the extra mile. Our toddler was so excited to have his own "special" chair (high chair) and a bed just for him. The house was a...More

About the neighbourhood
What's on and where to go? A car is necessary to make the most of exploring this area. Some of the great places you can visit are Sherwood Forest and Major Oak, Creswell Crags, Vulcan XH558 (at Robin Hood Doncaster Airport) and during display season, you may be lucky enough to see her fly right over the cottage!, If you like antiques and collectables, there is a very popular car boot at Torksey every Wednesday and Saturday which starts at 12noon, no early start for that one! In the summer months, there are car boot sales on alternate Sunday mornings at Harby and North Scarle, definitely worth a visit. Newark Showground is the location of the International Antiques and Collectors Fairs and Lincoln also hosts Antiques Fairs throughout the year. For those with an interest in historic... more
