About this listing

Woodthorpe Park is close by and we are a short walk from transport links into Nottingham City Centre which is two miles south of us.
We live in the old part of Woodthorpe which typically has large detached traditional houses on wide tree lined avenues. Ours is a quiet road and we have a large garden in which we keep chickens and bees. Ask about our home produced eggs and honey!

We live in the house and will be happy to help with any problems or information if we can. Please do ask if you need help with access to the washing machine or can't find any of the amenities listed or if breakfast supplies need topping up.
Ours is a quiet road with minimal traffic noise. We live close to Woodthorpe Grange Park which is worth a visit and has a short golf course as well as a tropical plant house.

We live a short walk (3 minutes) from the nearest bus stop into the city centre. The bus journey takes around 10 to 15 minutes off peak.

I am married to Mike and have 4 children in their late teens and early twenties. I enjoy gardening and looking after our chickens and bees. I also have another house that I look after. I enjoy going to the gym and have a couple of voluntary jobs to keep me busy.
We love this house and have hosted overseas students for over ten years and look forward to meeting new guests
