    About this property

    This stunning property sits in the grounds of Newstead Abbey, with spectacular views and many luxury features throughout.

    This beautifully renovated property is perfectly situated in the grounds of historic Newstead Abbey Park. Here you will be walking in the footsteps of the classic romantic poet, George Gordon Byron, and enjoying spectacular views over the lake, which was created by Thomas Wildman around 1820. The abbey is steeped in history and was founded as a monastic house in the late 12th century, and to this day, the house retains much of its medieval character along with the array of stunning gardens to explore.
    As you traverse the commanding front entrance into the spacious hall of this property, you will feel immediate escape from the outside world. Through glass double doors to your right is the first of two reception rooms, offering something to entertain all ages, with its adjoining snug providing a quiet place to read and reflect. To your left is a generous bedroom with a king size bed and en-suite with a walk in shower. Directly ahead at the heart of the house is a large, welcoming, open-plan kitchen/dining room with a fantastic outlook over the patio and superbly maintained gardens. A magnificent aga and American-style fridge/freezer, spa filter taps and a wine cooler are on hand to enjoy. Adjoining this on one side is a large utility area, whilst on the other, an impressive, formal living room with wrap-round windows. Upstairs are a further two large bedrooms and a fourth bedroom with bunk beds suitable for adults or children. The master bedroom is accessed through a dressing room adjoining a generously sized family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and shower.
    The gardens nestle amongst mature trees and shrubs and also boast a superb summerhouse to relax in whilst enjoying the lake views. Situated within the grounds of Newstead Abbey Park, The Gun Room is only a few minutes’ walk from many of the park’s unique features, including the abbey with café, Byron’s own fort and the plethora of gardens.
    Mansfield, Nottingham, Newark and Southwell are all close by and local attractions include Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park, Rufford Abbey Country Park, Wollaton Park, White Post Farm, Robin Hood’s Wheel Gate Park and Papplewick Pumping Station. The surrounding area is perfect for walkers and cyclists with many footpaths, tracks and woodland walks close by, along with a selection of pubs, restaurants and local amenities. The Gun Room makes a convenient and comfortable base for couples or families from which to enjoy the Peak District and Nottinghamshire.
    Whether you are celebrating an occasion or just spending time with friends or family, this is the perfect place to spend your time together. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    ALISON ‐ 15 Nov 2018
    "The Gun Room is an amazing place to stay, a beautiful house, tastefully decorated with a fabulous kitchen. The owners have thought of everything with every ‘mod-con’ you could wish for. We couldn’t believe how close to the Abbey we were and loved the beautiful woods and lake."
    Janine ‐ 6 Nov 2018
    "We loved the Gun Room. Beautiful, spacious property set in beautiful grounds with plenty of space for the kids to run around and a playground for them to explore. We didn’t need to leave the site all weekend. The only thing that would have been helpful that wasn’t provided was a couple of baby gates to stop the toddlers getting down the stairs and making their way to the aga! It just meant we couldn’t let them sleep in the children’s room and had to have them on our floor instead where we could guard them! Apart from that, excellent! Would highly recommend the property. Oh and who doesn’t love 8 peacocks turning up at the kitchen window at breakfast time?"

    "This is a quality facility. It is as good as any 5 star hotel. The Gun Room is an excellent location for any family retreat. The historical background of the Abbey makes this site very attractive. Every thing about it is outstanding. The facility for a group of eight is very comfortable. One of the outstanding features is the outside area. The yards and gardens, which are well maintained, provide opportunity for being outside. The interior room sizes are more than adequate. The arrival food package was not expected, but offered an unusual welcoming surprise. Shortly after our arrival, Steve our host, was there to see if we had any questions or need any help. I would recommend the Gun Room to everyone."

    "Thoroughly recommend the Gun Room. A lovely welcome pack of goodies on arrival, very well received - milk, bread, fruit, wine, chocs and other treats. A fantastic peaceful location, well sized rooms and well equipped with more TVs than you know what to do with - keeps the teenagers occupied so the adults can chat in peace. Very many thanks to Steven for his care and advice."

    "This was our second visit - has everything needed for a relaxing family break away from home."
    Valued Customer ‐ 24 May 2018
    "Excellent cottage and facilities in a great location with walks in the grounds of the abbey once the public had left a real treat. The lake and all its wildlife just at the end of the garden. We would recommend this cottage to anyone and would return."
    LINDA ‐ 28 Apr 2018
    "Our second stay in this comfortable cottage in exceptional surroundings. High quality furniture and fittings throughout. Generous welcome pack. Abbey and gardens within easy walking distance. Hope to return."

    "very good accommodation for a 3 generation family. house was very well equipped with good quality fittings. superb lakeside garden. the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in."
    Sue ‐ 8 Apr 2018
    "The Gun House is a lovely spacious house which is ideal for a gathering of mixed ages. We had three children under the age of four and they were very well catered for. The large box of toys was a massive hit as was the collection of books and DVDs. There is plenty of space so the house never seemed crowded. Having four televisions was a bonus!"
    Alison ‐ 16 Mar 2018
    "We had a fabulous weekend, it’s a wonderful house in a brilliant location (and we loved the peafowl in the garden!). The electric oven seemed not to be working and we couldn’t get the media mirror to tune in, but we let the owner know and these things can be fixed - we have every intention of returning."
    Mr K ‐ 3 Mar 2018
    "Had a great time , we all loved it and will be back, my only criticism would be the aga and oven could be a bit cleaner as could the patio doors, they were smeared with finger prints, also a larger mirror in the upstairs bathroom would be very handy as would a towel rail near the sink to put a hand towel on, minor issues I know but would help. The welcome gift was amazing we were very pleased with that, we will book again. Thank you, our grandchildren would like to add they loved the peacocks coming right up to the patio doors and the ducks and swans in the lake 10 out of 10"
    Duncan ‐ 10 Feb 2018
    "Great place to stay we would definitely book again"
    Graham ‐ 25 Jan 2018
    "Fantastic Place - The downstairs especially is very well laid out for family living. We loved the fact the kids all had a separate 'snug' to play in. The large family kitchen was amazing."
    Brian ‐ 6 Jan 2018
    "We had an excellent new year holiday at the Gun Room in the grounds of Newstead Abbey. We were a family group of 8 people and the property was ideal for our requirements. The location is excellent with plenty to do in the surrounding area. We visited the Major Oak at Edwinstowe, Nottingham and Southwell Minster.The size of the property was perfect with plenty of room for our group to spread out in the different areas of the house. The kitchen is well equipped and we had several meals for 8 which we were able to accommodate. We were very impressed with the attention to detail in the house and the quality of the furniture and fixtures.Our grand children were also very impressed with the visiting peacocks and enjoyed feeding them each morning. Obviously being winter there was a limit to how much we used the garden area. However its easy to imagine how pleasant this would be at warmer times of the year. A very big thank you to Malcolm and Steve who did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The welcome hamper was very much appreciated along with their advice and assistance when needed. We very much hope to visit the Gun Room again at some stage in the future."
    Elizabeth ‐ 4 Jan 2018
    "We loved our time at the Gun Room. We chose it for our Xmas break (2017) and it was perfect for our family - two couples, my elderly mother, a teenager and a toddler. The house was really like a home from home, with all the equipment you would expect to find to have a relaxing break. The bedrooms were comfortable, and we liked the extra touches like toys and games for the kids, the Wii, the laundry room and beautiful welcome pack. It was great cooking our Christmas Day meal in the AGA! We enjoyed strolling in garden, down to the water and over to the Abbey. The owner was accessible and friendly and I’ll never forget being greeted by the gorgeous peacocks as we ate breakfast. We would definitely book again."
