Gardener’s Cottage at Newstead Abbey
Stay in our Gardener’s Cottage at Newstead Abbey and you’ll be walking in the footsteps of the classical Romantic Poet, Lord Byron and enjoying the same stunning park vistas and surrounding countryside that truly inspired him.
Built in the 1860s by the Webb family, Gardener’s Cottage is situated in heart of the Abbey grounds and is just a few minutes’ walk from many of the park’s unique features, including the Abbey and Byron’s own Fort. Nestled amongst mature trees and shrubs and overlooking the original Rose Garden, this charming Grade II listed building has been sensitively restored to a very high standard, whilst still retaining some of the building’s original features, including wooden floorboards, floor tiles and beautiful stone mullion windows. The interior design has been influenced by rooms in the House and Abbey, which, by the way is well worth a visit during your stay.
The cottage sleeps up to six people and has two double bedrooms. There is a separate family bathroom with bath and separate shower. Off the hall downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen with all modern amenities along with a utility, along with a comfortable lounge and separate dining room with deluxe sofa bed.
The cottage is available for week long, weekend and mid-week breaks and is perfect for exploring the wealth of history and culture that the Robin Hood’s county has to offer and is also available to hire for pre and post ceremony accommodation for our happy couples who marry at the Abbey.
