Access Statement for Rose Cottage


Rose and Sweet Briar Cottages are single storey semi detatched cottages (converted farm buildings). Made of brick with a pantilted roof situated in the quiet Hamlet of Kersall near Newark. These bungalow styled cottages stand next to the original farm house within the one and a half acre grounds of Hill Farm (no longer a working farm). Built around 1760, Hill Farm has uninterrupted views of the Newark and Sherwood Countryside. We think we live in the most beautiful place in Nottinghamshire and one of our greatest pleasures is to share it with our guests.
