Entertainment
“Some of you may recognise this as Batman’s house, and it is commensurately impressive with beautiful architecture and surrounded by Wollaton Deer Park. The deer roam free here so you can walk right up to them with no fence in between. Please keep in mind they are wild animals and it isn’t a petting zoo, but they are truest amazing to spend time with. There is at least one festival here every year, ‘Splendour’ that’s family friendly and is a good day of music.”

“Well kept real ales, carefully selected wine list and exceptional food - in The Good Food Guide since 2009; also in Michelin and Sawdays guides. The dining room and snug have been restored to their original simplicity with lime plastered walls and farmhouse furniture. Candlelight and fresh flowers add a touch of elegance. Benches outside on the village green make a great stopping point on a walk, set in the pretty village of Alstonefield. 8.3 miles away”
