About Rowthorne LodgeA restored gate lodge for two with luxury interiors, set within the Hardwick Hall estate.
As a former gatehouse, Rowthorne Lodge sits in a romantically secluded location on the edge of the Hardwick estate. The one-bedroom cottage is the perfect couple’s retreat with each room tastefully furnished for a comfortable stay with added luxury. It benefits from sweeping views of the surrounding countryside too.
As a guest of the cottage you’re invited to explore the rest of the estate, free of charge. Just pick up a map and explore its 2,500 acres of parkland, woodland, wetland and farmland. You can also head into the main house, which once housed the formidable ‘Bess of Hardwick'.
Beyond the estate walls, visit Sherwood Forest just a 20 mile drive from the cottage. Spend the day wandering through this ancient woodland made famous by the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men.
