Sons and Lovers Cottage
from £170.00 p/unit
Welcome
Self Catering in Eastwood

This is where the world famous author D.H.Lawrence lived from 1887 to 1891 when he was two years old. It is also the setting of the Morrel's house in Sons and Lovers. The downstairs is a private museum having been lovingly restored to its original Victorian fixtures and fittings including the black leaded fireplace. When you enter the house you really do walk back in time to over a century ago.

The upstairs has been converted into a very comfortable flat with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms on the top floor. It can sleep 5 people and is an excellent base to visit Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

The house is one mile from Langley Mill railway station which has direct connections to the North and London. Eastwood is steeped in D H Lawrence history - from the lovingly restored Birthplace Museum, the newly opened Heritage Centre where Lawrence collected his father's wages and now depicts history over the last hundred years - to the "Honeymoon Cottage" from Lawrence's novel The Rainbow in nearby Cossall. When you enter the house you really do walk back in time to over a century ago.
