Description

A great base for anyone wanting a peaceful retreat, set in the heart of Robin Hood’s beautiful county within easy reach of Lincolnshire and beyond.

Surrounded by farmland and enjoying lovely views over the countryside Walnut Barn has no light pollution and is perfect for star gazing, and there’s footpaths on the doorstep. Adjacent to a working arable farm Walnut Barn boasts a peaceful, rural position in the heart of the beautiful county of Nottinghamshire near to Sherwood Forest, the home of Robin Hood, yet close to the A1 making it an ideal holiday base from which to explore the area, Middle England and beyond. This delightful barn conversion provides comfortable, well-appointed and equipped accommodation with contemporary furniture and all the facilities you would expect from a luxury holiday cottage. It’s been lovingly built by the owners to provide a comfortable and unique holiday home large enough for 6 guests yet cosy enough for a couple or solo travellers.
On the ground floor the entrance porch leads into the dining room with a large oak table with Eames style chairs and guest information to help you plan your day, and patio doors lead to the gravel garden. The well-equipped kitchen with electric range cooker will mean cooking for your family won’t feel like a chore. In the evening relax in the living room which has picture windows looking out onto open farmland, oak floor, squashy sofas and occasional chairs, an old farm pine trunk acts as a coffee table, games cupboard, Smart TV and ornamental wood burner. On the first floor is a small reading area which makes a great place to chill out with a book or take in the view, located off the reading area you will find two lovely bedrooms. Both have windows with great views over the surrounding countryside.
Walnut Barn is located on the outskirts of the village of Weston; the nearest pub, shop and takeaway are about a mile away. There are several good pubs serving food within a few miles of the property, many of which welcome dogs. Apart from great walking and beautiful scenery from the door there are plenty of wonderful places to visit within easy driving distance.

    The barn is gorgeous and extremely well-appointed. Sally was a great host - communication etc was good. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want (even a slow-cooker). Beds are super-comfortable and showers are great. The hot-tub is brilliant - we spent all afternoon and evening in there. This meant that we didn't explore the local area very much, but the setting is lovely and we did visit a few local towns on our way home. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    We had a fantastic stay at walnut barn, there was everything you could possibly need in the barn. Tuxford village was only 5 minutes by car. It is ideally located for exploring the area. The barn is beautifully decorated and furnished and the owner is really helpful and friendly, we will definitely be staying again
