A dining room permits formal entertaining and an additional family room is an ideal place in which to relax and enjoy day to day life situated as it is next door to the hub of the house, the bespokely fitted country kitchen.

Fashionable Bawtry is nearby and the market town of Retford is a short car journey away where a good range of residential amenities, sporting and recreational facilities may be found. Doncaster, Sheffield and the South Yorkshire conurbation in general are all within striking distance.

Communication links are excellent with both Retford and Doncaster having mainline railway stations on the London to Edinburgh Intercity Link (London King's Cross approximately 1 hour 30 minutes from Retford Station).
