Beautifully situated in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, this property sits amongst other cottages and period houses with a lovely green outlook. The biggest advantage is that being a small market town, it is only a five minute walk to the centre of Bingham with all manner of shops, markets and public transport plus the added bonus of a gym/swimming pool five minutes in the other direction. Parking outside on the lane is available and free.

The space

My little cottage is 200 years old and would have once been the gardeners cottage, although sadly no garden but there is a sunny terrace in the front to sit out . It is therefore full of character but quite SMALL with low doors and oak beamed ceilings. It is one of the original '2 up, 2 downs' from around 1800 and in recent years was modernised and a small toilet/shower room added. It has been decorated and furnished in keeping with the period complete with some antique furniture and knick knacks so is not be suitable for small children. You do actually sense the history in the ambiance. The kitchen is just big enough for 4 to eat round the table and the living room cosy, especially when the log fire is blazing away in the grate. Situated in a little no-thru road literally just off the main centre and market square of Bingham, it is quiet but a great base for the local shops and easy access to Nottingham. Fine for 4 people (max )if not to tall!!
It is not suitable for children under the age of 5 years due to the danger of small antique knick knacks and the step into the shower. A baby, not yet crawling, could be accommodated if you have a cot.

On foot the centre of Bingham is just a few minutes walk with all facilities including a library and doctor's surgery. There are supermarkets (late opening), hairdressers, florists, banks, bakers and butchers and many restaurants and of course superb Fish and Chips! At the top of the road is a Leisure centre with swimming pool. On Thursdays there is a market in the square.

Bingham is rurally situated amongst fields and small villages. There is free parking outside the cottage - its never a problem to find a space as only residents use the road. It is a small market town nestling in the countryside but only 20 mins drive to Nottingham and less to Newark. The old town of Lincoln can be reached to the North and Derby to the South. If you wish to stray further afield you could reach the famous cobbled town of York or walk round the stunning architecture of Cambridge. There are many pretty villages around in which to walk or cycle and maybe a pub lunch. How about the cricket at Trentbridge? There are trains to the seaside or maybe you would like the caves in Derbyshire. In Bingham itself the local pubs do good food by big open fireplaces or visit one of the many restaurants. The leisure centre is always a good all weather alternative to a bike ride. There are many outlying protected areas of natural beauty and bird life.


Inside there are two bedrooms and a shower room/wc upstairs. The main bedroom has a King sized bed and the second bedroom, a double bed. Central heating and hot water is of course available at all times. We provide unlimited fast fibre extra wifi and also the local library (5 minutes away) provides computers/internet free of charge by the hour.
SMOKERS may smoke out on the terrace but in no circumstances in the property itself. It is not only a fire hazard in a wooden beamed property but also unpleasant for non smokers that may follow you.

We dealt with Susan rather than Jane, and she was terrific throughout - great communication, always. We had no trouble finding Rosehip Cottage, nor parking directly outside every night. The inside was immaculate. What a lovely space! Really liked the decor - especially the big armchairs where I spent a lot of my time at night. The kitchen was fully functioning ( we cooked bangers from Melton Mowbray for breakfast one morning!), with a table and chairs, tasteful new appliances and a big fridge. The black & white bathroom featured a powerful and hot shower and big, thick towels. There was central heating when the nights got cold, strong WiFi and a flat screen TV with a built-in DVD player. The bedrooms were a good size, and nicely decorated. Rosehip Cottage (look for the name in the wrought iron at the front) is well situated - just a five minute walk (towards the closed end of the cul-de-sac) brings you to the lovely town centre, with it's amazing market cross, plus supermarkets, Costa coffee, take-away pizza, etc - everything you could possibly want. Certainly, wonderful accommodation in a top spot, and highly recommended.

We highly recommend staying at Rosehip Cottage. It has a wonderful homely feel to the place. Elegantly decorated with everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was clean with great fluffy bath sheets! 2 minute walk to the township and parking in street not a problem at all. We chose Bingham due to its locality to larger towns like Nottingham and Lincoln.

Rosehip Cottage is gorgeous! The perfect place to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea in front of the fireplace in the colder months (which is exactly what we did). Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jane the housekeeper was very welcoming and thoughtful (we had started the day at 5am and she had very kindly gotten us supplies for a cup of tea). Such a lovely welcome after a very long day. Bingham is also a lovely place to explore and the cottage is perfectly located to do that. We will definitely be back to Rosehip Cottage

Jane's place was a great location for our visit with family in nearby Cropwell Butler. The cozy cottage was clean and comfortable with a great shower. The location was also very convenient with a short walk into town for shopping, coffee and a pint at the local pub. We also enjoyed a good breakfast at the Picture Cafe which I would recommend. I would definitely recommend Jane's place if you are staying in the area.

Stayed with friend so that we could go to Trent Bridge for Cricket. House very close to easy bus & train services to Nottingham, and the stadiums. House is small and twee. Clean and fairly comfortable. Nice pub around the corner.

This cottage is fantastic. Much character and we loved it. The shower is relatively large , water pressure is fantastic and no trouble with hot water. Very comfortable cottage to stay in. Has most everything you could need- even some condiments to which we added. Highly recommend. We will be back for sure as we have relatives around the corner.
