THE DOVECOTE, MILL LANE, ROCKLEY, RETFORD, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, DN22 0QP

DESCRIPTION
The Dovecote represents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly stunning and most individual converted Dovecote situated within private and secluded grounds in an idyllic location having access to the River Maun and views over the appealing countryside and marshes.
Forming part of the original outbuildings to the former Lord of the Manor the property has been comprehensively and sympathetically refurbished by the present owners and is now luxuriously appointed for modern family living. There is therefore a successful blend of character together with high calibre specification including a bespoke fitted kitchen and contemporary family bathroom.
Whilst contemporary accents have been introduced, they complement the historic character of the former barn

LOCATION
As intimated above, The Dovecote is situated in an idyllic riverside location at the end of Mill Lane in the modest hamlet of Rockley. The riverside situation is best described as rural. Rockley is bisected by the old Great North Road (A638). There are local facilities including hotel and restaurant available at nearby Markham Moor whilst Gamston to the north has a popular junior school. Further facilities may be found in the village of East Markham.

Further afield Retford and Newark offer market town amenities.

The area in general is served by an excellent provision of communication links with the A1 accessible at Markham Moor leading to the wider motorway network and putting South Yorkshire within commuting distance. Both Retford and Newark have mainline railway stations on the London to Edinburgh Intercity Link placing London's King's Cross within approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. Air travel is available via a private air field at Gamston, whilst international airports are available at Doncaster Sheffield (Robin Hood) and Nottingham East Midlands.

Leisure amenities including Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park, a variety of golf courses, gymnasiums and leisure centres are also available within the region. Educational facilities, both state and independent, are also well catered for.

DIRECTIONS
Leaving Retford south bound on the A638 pass through the village of Gamston, after approximately one mile you will enter Rockley, turn right when entering the hamlet onto Mill Lane and The Dovecote will be found at the end of the lane approached by its electric gated entrance.
