Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Beautifully situated in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, this property sits amongst other cottages and period houses with a village outlook. The biggest advantage is that being a small market town, it is only a five minute walk to the centre of Bingham with all manner of shops, markets and public transport plus the added bonus of a gym/swimming pool five minutes in the other direction. Parking outside the house, is available and free.

The space
My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, although sadly no garden but there is a sunny terrace in the front to sit out . It is therefore full of character but quite SMALL with low doors and oak beamed ceilings. It is one of the original '2 up, 2 downs' from around 1800 and in recent years was modernised and a small toilet/shower room added. It has been decorated and furnished in keeping with the period complete with some antique furniture and knick knacks so is not suitable for very young children. You do actually sense the history in the ambiance. The kitchen is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table and the living room cosy, especially when the log fire is blazing away in the grate. Situated in a little no-thru road literally just off the main centre and market square of Bingham, it is quiet but a great base for the local shops and easy access to Nottingham. Fine for 4 people (max )if not to tall!!
It is not suitable for children under the age of 5 years due to the danger of small antique knick knacks and the step into the shower. A baby, not yet crawling, could be accommodated if you have a cot.

On foot the centre of Bingham is just a few minutes walk with all facilities including a library and doctor's surgery. There are supermarkets (late opening), hairdressers, florists, bank; post office, bakers and butchers and many restaurants and of course superb Fish and Chips! At the top of the road is a Leisure centre with swimming pool. On Thursdays there is a market in the square.

Bingham is rurally situated amongst fields and small villages. There is free parking outside the cottage - its never a problem to find a space as normally only residents use the road. It is a small market town nestling in the countryside but only 20 mins drive to Nottingham or to Newark. The old town of Lincoln can be reached to the North and Derby to the South. If you wish to stray further afield you could reach the famous cobbled town of York or walk round the stunning architecture of Cambridge. There are many pretty villages around in which to walk or cycle and maybe a pub lunch. How about the cricket at Trentbridge? There are trains to the seaside or maybe you would like the caves in Derbyshire. In Bingham itself the local pubs do good food by big open fireplaces or visit one of the many restaurants. The leisure centre is always a good all weather alternative to a bike ride. There are many outlying protected areas of natural beauty and bird life.


Inside there are two bedrooms and a shower room/wc upstairs. The main bedroom has a King sized bed and the second bedroom, a double bed. Central heating and hot water is of course available at all times. We provide unlimited fast fibre extra wifi and also the local library (5 minutes away) provides computers/internet free of charge by the hour.
SMOKERS may smoke out on the terrace (with ashtray) but in no circumstances in the property itself. It is not only a fire hazard in a wooden beamed property but also unpleasant for non smokers that may follow you.

Where you’ll be

Bingham, United Kingdom

The neighbours are wonderful within this village community. Please do not hesitate to draw on their help and advice if needed.

We are a small market town in a rural setting. The cottage is set in a conservation area with other period homes in the street and those surrounding. However there is a market every Thursday and all manner of shops just 5 minutes walk away. There is even a LLidl and Aldi on the outskirts - maybe 15 minutes walk. The local pubs and restaurants draw many folk from around abouts and with Wetherspoons offering superb quality and a roaring fire (in winter) you cant go wrong.
