Why stay here ...
Dukeries Retreat at Hill Crest Farm is on the edge of a quiet Nottinghamshire village but only a mile from the A1 and within 100 yards of a fine coaching inn, a bistro pub, a high quality Indian restaurant, a luxury spa and access to many local walks. The site is ideal for those wanting a relaxing break but with the option to be active. A former horse pasture of more than 6 acres adjacent to the main house and stables has been turned into a peaceful and picturesque site with toilet facilities (showers to follow soon!); laundry, including drying and hot water pots sink; extra fridge/freezer capacity if required; games room including bar football, darts, DVD and book library; dog-walking field and exclusive discounts to local pub, hotel and Indian restaurant. Also available are luxury firepits with swing-over cooking griddle to extend the time outdoors. Kiln-dried split logs and fire-starter packs are offered with these. Bring your own sausages!
For those wanting to stretch their legs a little, the Chesterfield canal offers lovely walks to the country town of Retford, Ranby village or beyond. Historic gravel quarrying has now left a legacy of beautiful fishing lakes and country parks all within a mile or so and the adjacent village of Blyth contains an Activities Centre with archery, crossbow, axe and knife throwing, shooting, zombie apocalypse training etc.
If you need accommodation for friends or relatives, the farmhouse offers 2 luxury en-suite king and super-king bedrooms which overlook the pasture. Other facilities such as bicycles, barbecue, games etc. are available upon request and Mick and Lyndis, the owners, will do their best to help.
Although the site is not overlooked and therefore quiet and private, we ask that noise is kept to a minimum and the playing of any music or loud activities at 'quiet' times does not become intrusive to others' enjoyment. Hill Crest Farm has been our home for well over twenty years and we hope you will enjoy being here as much as we do. We opened in Summer 2019 and plan many more improvements, including fully serviced pitches with hard-standing options, a new double-width entrance exclusively for CAMC guests and electric vehicle charging points.
