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 house has been a location for two major films, televised drama and documentaries. It can sleep 5 people and is an excellent base to visit Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
Come to one of the best tourist areas in the country. This is Robin Hood Country - the visitor centre at Edwinstowe in Sherwood Forest is great for grown-ups and children alike with the Major Oak, Robin's favourite hideout. Live the legend with family events throughout the year. See also the Tales of Robin Hood in Nottingham. Derbyshire Peak District National Park is also on the doorstep. Arguably the best country house in Britain, Chatsworth House, is nearby.
The upstairs has been converted into a very comfortable flat with: Lounge with TV/video and electric fire; modern kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker, table, chairs, and TV. Bathroom with full size bath and electric shower, immersion heater and wall heater. Two bedrooms on the top floor.
