Had a great mid week break at the Toy Room. It exceeded expectations & was clean, comfortable & cosy & there was chocolate cake too! The accommodation was lovely, comfy bed, home from home. The local pubs were good too. We wouldn’t hesitate booking again & thanks to Eddie & Kim for looking after us. Steve & Sheila

This comfortable cottage was the best equipped holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The cottage was spacious and warm and the super king bed was exceptionally comfortable. We wanted for nothing and the owners were responsive and helpful.

This barn conversion is in pristine condition and extremely well equipped. It is on a working farm - so away from the village - but there is a bus at the end of the drive which I think goes to Nottingham and Mansfield. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet and would highly recommend.

We were warmly welcomed (cakes, toast, milk, butter and jam) by Kim and Eddie, who were always present but discreet during our stay. No bad surprise, everything is in accordance with the description and pictures. The cleanliness is irreproachable. Small gestures during our stay (fruits, eggs) that we appreciated. Owners always listening to us and ready to answer our questions. To recommend highly.

We were going to an event and needed a nice place to stay not to far away, we booked this in Papplewick, it was amazing, really warm and comfortable and the owners also provided the best chocolate cake ever. The surroundings are beautiful and was great to stay on a working farm but with no noise. We will definitely be back soon.

We stayed at Forest Farm on a last minute booking and how lucky we were to find it, hidden away from the hustle and bustle this quaint but spacious accommodation had a lovely cottagey feel to it and it seems that the hosts had thought of everything. There are lots of good places to eat within a short distance and some lovely walks. Towns for a mooch or a major shop were not too far away either. It was so relaxing to be there, nothing to disturb the peace and quiet, perfect for a relaxing break, many thanks to Kim and Eddie who were most gracious hosts, we will see you again very soon!

About the neighbourhood
We offer the perfect base for visitors to this part of Nottinghamshire and here’s a little taster about Papplewick and the local area: On the outskirts of the village is Papplewick Hall which dates back to the 18th century whilst it's St James's Church has links to Robin Hood as legend has it that Robin Hood would cut his bows from the Yew Trees in the church yard. The nearby cave dug from a standstone cliff has also been named Robin Hood's stables. Nearby we are blessed with an abundance of tea rooms, country pubs, restaurants, shops, country walks, golf courses, cycling routes and horse-riding stables… an ideal location for cyclists and walkers with Derbyshire less than an hour’s drive away.
Getting around
Close to the M1, East Midlands Airport, the tram, train and the bus from Mansfield to Nottingham passes the end of our drive every 10 mins. We have an abundance of National treasures to visit including the Papplewick Pumping Station, Newstead Abbey, Southwell Minster, Newark Castle, Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park, Rufford Park, Sherwood Pines, Thorsby Hall, the Nottingham Caves and White Post Farm, these are just some of the nearby attractions.
