GO Country Hotels in Nottingham

Places to Stay in Nottingham If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern day living then why not enjoy a rural retreat at one of the many country house hotels around Nottingham.

Perhaps the most luxurious, and well known, country getaway lies in the heart of Robin Hood’s old stomping ground, Sherwood Forest. Here you’ll find the Center Parcs [map] holiday village, where you can enjoy some exhilarating relaxation in the midst of Nottinghamshire’s quiet countryside.

With a whole host of apartments and chalets mixed into this huge nature reserve, you are quite within your rights to forget you’re only half an hour away from the city. The complex includes beautiful woodland, magnificent heathland and a water sports lake with a sandy beach. Life here revolves around eating delicious meals, lounging in a sub-tropical swimming paradise, cycling around the park, ten-pin bowling, wandering around the Japanese Zen Garden and playing golf.

Situated just four miles from Nottingham city centre in 700 acres of parkland, the Best Western Bestwood Lodge Hotel [map] is a country haven for tourists and businesspeople alike. Along with a bar and restaurant at the hotel, there are also tennis courts, a golf course, outdoor swimming pool and pony trekking located within a five minute walk. So whether you want to enjoy lazy days in the quiet park or have some serious sporting fun, this hotel offers an ideal location. It is also quite close to all Nottingham’s major tourist attractions.

Six miles north of Nottingham, you’ll find the Cockliffe Country House Hotel [map] at Burnt Stump Country Park, which is set in a 17th century manor house. All the bedrooms are decorated in bold and striking colours, and many of them are unusual in shape reflecting the contours of the original building.

Those feeling a little energetic may like to stroll across the road into Burnt Stump Country Park, where there are golf and fishing facilities. And then at the end of the day you can return to the hotel to enjoy a meal at the Sherwood dining room, which serves imaginative English and continental cuisine. There's also a bar and conference room on site.

Finally, if you’re looking for a more intimate country retreat check out The Cottage Country House Hotel [map] in Ruddington, a small establishment with plenty of character. Located just three miles from Nottingham, this hotel has won many awards including the Conservation Award for the best restoration of an old building in a village setting.

The bedrooms are spread between three cottages that date back to the 17th century, which are grouped around a courtyard with its very own wishing well, making it a great place to relax and unwind.
