Bed & Breakfast, Newark

The Goat House at Ivy Cottage is a great place to stop and rest either to break a journey, a romantic weekend or to spend a few days visiting the area. 

The separate annex sits in the grounds behind the main house, offering quietness and privacy.

The Goat House is spacious and light, offering a large sitting room with a 55" television, double bedroom, spacious bathroom and hallway.

Breakfast would normally be served in the house, however in these uncertain times we have decided to deliver to you a tray of deliciousness, all locally sourced food with eggs from the village!

We will ask for your breakfast choices on arrival.

Here at Ivy Cottage we operate a fully compliant PPE policy and take extra care cleaning the rooms. We ask please that you park your car in front of our garden on the road (it is a very quiet village) and walk up the drive to use the separate sidegate into the cottage.

Please do NOT drive up the drive and turn your car in our neighbours driveway..

The village of Laxton is unique, steeped in history and is the last remaining village in the UK to practice the Medieval Open Field Farming System.

At the centre of the village is a Visitors Centre open from dawn til dusk, and pinfolds dotted around the fields offering information on the history of the system. There are many walks and visiting attractions on the doorstep.

We are extremely lucky to have an award winning pub in walking distance; The Dovecote Inn which is open seven days a week, please contact Samantha to make a booking on your behalf to avoid disappointment.

In the next door village there is the Old Plough Inn, a nice walk if you have time on your hands!

Other tourist attractions include Newark Showground - known for their Antique Fairs, Norwood Golf Course, Nottingham & The Major Oak home to Robin Hood...
