• Milestone Brewery •

Perhaps the most local of them all, Milestone Brewery is just next door. They offer a great selection of real ales that can be purchased in bottles from its on site shop or tasted in pints at its nearby highly recomended real ale pub The Crown, in Normanton-on-Trent.


• Newark-on-Trent •

Roughly 7 miles from us. Newark is a very pleasant market town with a beautiful cobbled market square and five colourful markets a week. As well as that you can climb the church to get a breathtaking birds eye view of the town and surrounding areas which on the right day is not to be missed.

The castle is undoubtedly worth a visit with its superbly kept grounds and its beautiful walls, it's the perfect place for a picnic on a sunny afternoon or after a stroll down one of the many lovely river walks. If its the river that interests you there are river cruses that run daily from the town that last just over an hour and a half.



• Newark Showground •

Newark Showground is always a busy place with something on most weekends like the antiques fairs, kit car shows, Americana, Newark Show, LAMA Show as well as the Auto Jumbles.

Around 12miles from Milestone the pre-roman town of 'Lindum' is a must if you are looking to explore the local and surrounding areas. It has a wide selection of different shops on the high street so you stand a good chance of finding what you need, also the Cathedral is worth a look and if your feeling brave you can tackle the appropriately named "Steep Hill". Lincoln is easily assessable by car and boasts excellent parking facility's, but if your not too keen on driving there is a very reliable bus service from the village into Newark where you can catch a short direct train straight into the centre of Lincoln.

Many things to do in Southwell include a stroll around the minster grounds and if your lucky inside it, and for the more retail minded of us, there are lots of lovely boutiques and shops down its narrow streets, as well as many lovely places to have lunch or an evening meal. A day at the races is also well recommended as Southwell Racecourse is known to be one of the best in Britain, with races running throughout the year. And of course not to forget that Southwell is the home of the Bramley Apple.

Sherwood Forest visitors centre is an easy 8 mile drive from us. Kids and adults alike can have fun and enjoy the home of the legendary Robin Hood and the world famous Major Oak.
