Gorgeous Garden Stays in Nottinghamshire


Nottingham’s littered with beautiful places to stay, so we thought – as it’s the Year of the English Garden after all – we’d round up some of our favourite places to stay with beautiful gardens. So treat yourself to an overnight visit, and you can be waking up to the smell of blooming flowers, and enjoying some of Nottinghamshire’s prettiest, most picturesque accommodation options in no time.

Langar Hall – This just happens to be Sir Paul Smith’s favourite place to stay. The charming hotel is a haven of tranquillity, and you’ll love breathing in the fresh air, while staying far away from the stresses of city life.

Langar Hall is a genuine country house which has gently evolved into a hotel and restaurant without losing the air of a family home.

It enjoys a stellar reputation, thanks to its exceptional hospitality, friendly and efficient service, comfortable bedrooms, good food and interesting wine list.

The beautiful Agnews chalet is even more secluded, and it’s our pick if you want to enjoy the ultimate in peace and quiet. Its private veranda looks out across the hall’s croquet lawn.

Hart’s Hotel – This luxury boutique city-centre hotel features a private garden with stunning views. Book a garden room and enjoy your own private access!

It’s nestled high on the ramparts of the medieval castle in a secluded and tranquil location, close to Nottingham’s fabulous Park Estate. There’s plenty of green open space, and pretty views to enjoy in The Park, which once served as Nottingham Castle’s royal hunting estate.
