About Kitchen Garden Cottage

Tucked away in the heart of Clumber Park, between the walled garden and the cricket ground, Kitchen Garden Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore this country estate.

Kitchen Garden Cottage was built around 1892 along with the nearby Gardens House (now the Garden Tea Room). Due to its proximity to the walled kitchen garden, vineries and the formal gardens, the cottage is thought to have been used to house either a number of workers from the gardens or one individual and his family, perhaps an assistant to the Head Gardener.  

Simply decorated with comfortable interiors, this restored gardener’s cottage has no passing traffic meaning you can enjoy a noise-free break. All sleeping accommodation is located on the first floor and there’s a lawn area with a picnic bench for you to unwind, or even dine, outside.

Step out of your cottage front door to explore the miles of woodland walks and cycle trails and the abundance of wildlife that covers the sweeping estate. There is a cycle rental about 400m from the cottage. When you stay here, you’ll also have access to Clumber Park estate and the walled kitchen garden out-of-hours, so you can wander around without the crowds and feel like the lord and lady of the manor.

For fun days out you won’t be short of places to go, things to do and see. Sherwood Forest, home to the Major Oak of Robin Hood fame, is close by for fantasy woodland adventures, and the Derbyshire Peak District is an hour’s drive away if you fancy hiking over the rolling peaks. If you’re looking for a historic twist to your break, you could explore the historic city of Lincoln which is only 40 minutes away by car. Or why not discover more National Trust estates that are all within driving distance from the cottage, including Hardwick Hall, Belton House, Tattershall Castle, Gunby Hall, Calke Abbey and Kedleston Hall.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
