The Cottage dates from 1871 and was part of a hunting lodge.

Der Wohnraum

The Cottage dates from 1871 and was part of a hunting lodge built by the 7th Earl Cowper in part of old Sherwood Forest. The Cottage is Grade II * Listed and was converted from the Grooms' quarters, the harness room and the scullery for the old kitchen. The former stables, coach house and Kitchen to Beauvale House, are also now converted to a character homes. The Cottage is part of the North wing of the imposing Beauvale House with its Victorian folly 90ft Hunting Tower, high above the wood. Beauvale House retains a strong connection with the writings of DH Lawrence, with many of the characters supposedly based on staff and residents of Beauvale at the turn of the 19th/20th century. The game keeper's cottage now lies derelict in the nearby woodland and the red gate (of Lady Chatterley's Lover fame) remains in the walled garden of Beauvale House.
The Accommodation
The Cottage has a double bedroom with King size pine bed and washed pine and Shabby Chic furniture with leaded windows overlooking Beauvale House. The Bathroom is on the same floor with a walk in Shower with sink and toilet. On the ground floor there is a split level living area with a raised dining area suitable for 4 people with a church pew built into the alcove and bench seating round a pine table. The lounge retains the wood panelling of the original harness room and saddlery and now has a modern sofa and club chair, with a table on a traditional stone floor. Freesat satellite TV is available with Free Wireless Broadband from BT, subject to local conditions. The kitchen is reached up stone stairs from the living area and is actually the old scullery to Beauvale House with high vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is hand crafted with a large Belfast sink but retains modern appliances, fridge/freezer, electric oven and gas hob, microwave and washer dryer. Kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery are all provided. The kitchen windows look out over the inner courtyard. The entrance to the Cottage is from the inner courtyard through a large church style gothic door.

Hosts were lovely. The place was comfy and quiet. They provided a lovely loaf of bread for us. The only thing I could possibly think to critique would be that it would have been nice to have real coffee/tea instead of instant/herbal. oh, and butter or jam for the bread but i'm just getting greedy now :)

Our stay at the Secret Sanctuary was an absolute delight. Peaceful and remote (but not too remote) John had sent detailed directions and he and Valerie were there to greet us when we arrived. They made us feel very welcome and left us to ourselves. I'd absolutely have no problem in recommending this place. Loved it.
