Lavender Cottage is a recently refurbished holiday cottage located in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. This two bedroom detached cottage (dating from c.1798) backs onto parkland, has a courtyard location with space outside to dine alfresco and there are lots of beautiful countryside walks right on the doorstep.
Situated in the middle of the UK Southwell is a characterful and picturesque traditional market town is often referred to as "The jewel in Nottinghamshire’s crown”. Southwell’s location makes it a really convenient place to stay when en route to another destination as well as for short breaks whilst exploring Nottinghamshire, Newark and Lincoln.
Lavender Cottage is a short walk through the tree lined park to the centre of town, making it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike; the many shops, restaurants, cosy cafes, friendly pubs and garden centres are all within walking distance. Learn more of the Bramley Apple story, Lord Byron, King Charles and follow the heritage walks through the town to discover the Workhouse, owned by the National Trust or back a winner at Southwell Racecourse!
We wear protective equipment and supply cleaning supplies so you can clean whilst you stay. We use disinfectant and all high touch surfaces have been sanitised. Washable face masks are provided if you would like them. All children’s games and books have been removed and replaced with easily washable toys which are sanitised after each guest.
Your safety and comfort is our priority during your stay with us in Southwell.
Everything we do, we try to do with a minimum impact on the environment.
We use local products as much as possible in our welcome packs, including soaps from @soaksouthwell and sometimes leave home grown produce from our garden - when in season!
Recycling bins are clearly marked and the leisure centre four doors away has facilities for glass and tetra pacs to be recycled too.
We use eco friendly dishwasher and washing tablets. All our laundry is done back at our base a few doors away having been blowing in the breeze outside.
We are members of the green tourism business scheme - we also pledge to plant an acorn for every guest who stays at Lavender Cottage so that one day you can come back and visit the oak tree grown in the year of your first stay.
We set up a sewing group during lockdown and donated over 200 masks to those without homes, refugees and asylum seekers
We collect milk bottle lids to raise funds for children’s wheelchairs and sponsors of SOS children’s villages in India
Once in Southwell it’s easy to park the car and not need it again, there’s a bus stop outside the courtyard, we provide storage for bikes and there are seemingly endless beautiful walks ... we’re happy to point you in the right direction
