“Great week away from the "rat race" of work. Peaceful setting with unexpected friends George & Mildred (aka ducks!) Fantastic places to visit... Sad to be leaving, but now fully recovered.”
Rob & Sandra King, Worksop, Notts.

Formerly the brewery and grain-store for the Malt Shovel Inn (now Malt Shovel House), The Old Brewhouse was derelict until its restoration in 1997. Traditional craftsmanship and re-use of existing materials have enabled us to preserve its original appearance, whilst modern construction techniques have enabled it to offer warmth and comfort not usually associated with period buildings.*

The Old Brewhouse is a detached holiday cottage and, from the comfort of the deck which overlooks the stream and ½ acre paddock, visitors can enjoy privacy and unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside.
