Rv Park
“A camp and caravan site, they offer Fishing and nature walks, but a main feature would be the On-Site Pub and Restaurant in a relaxed environment. A good option for a trip out and a bite to eat.”

Restaurant
“Almost a neighbour! Very good food at reasonable prices. Ask for the vegetarian menu - separate from main menu - if you wish. For a more intimate space, ask for the top floor ('wine bar'). If you are a group, they may be able to arrange that space just for you. Book ahead if planning a weekend visit. ”

Event Space
“Stubton Hall is a 19th century country house set on the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire border just a short drive from the historic market town of Newark.The things we first loved about Stubton – its unspoilt rural location away from noisy roads, its lovely park, and its elegant rooms – are the very aspects that make it the perfect place for swanky house parties, smart nuptials or an important business meeting. It is a grand, old English country house, but a comfortable one where you can sink into a sofa by a roaring fire and are treated like a family friend in a lovely home.”

““A warm welcome awaits you here at the Red Lion. Great pub food, freshly prepared to quality restaurant standards, with beer and wine to match. All in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a sympathetically refurbished 17th century inn with bucket loads of charm enhanced by modern décor.”
