Notown Cottage is our family home, built in 1810, however your lounge & mezzanine bedroom with ensuite shower room are a spacious contemporary addition. You have your own entrance, with key, to your private wing of the house, including a sunny space to sit outside.
Off-road parking, free WIFI and hot drink facilities are available. The village pub & quaint tearooms are just a few minutes walk away. We've lived here for over 20 years & would love to share our knowledge of the area with you.

The space

We are delighted to offer a wing of our family home for you to enjoy. It includes a spacious lounge, dining area with comfy, soft corner sofa for you to collapse in front of the TV or with a book at the end of your day. There's a huge table that can be used as a work/office desk. Its also where we serve your home-cooked breakfast. The unique feature of this space is your mezzanine bedroom and ensuite that benefits from 5 metres of floor-to-ceiling height windows so you can gaze at the stars, or be mesmerised by floating clouds. The windows mean there is lots of light (we provide silk eye masks for those who require them). In the winter months you will be kept warm and toasty with underfloor heating, allowing you to wander in bare foot on gorgeous slate tiles.
Your French doors open out on to a private decked area which you are free to use to soak up the sun. You are most welcome to join us outside for a glass of wine when the sun is shining.

Guest access

You have your own private access through French doors directly into your accommodation.

Interaction with guests

You have a kettle to make hot drinks, however, if you need anything further I am often to be found in the kitchen adjacent to your space, so feel free to ask.

Other things to note

If I am free, I am happy to pick up from railway stations and take you out and about so you can enjoy the area.

Bleasby was a nice quiet town. Louise lives very close to a great pub, she also gave us a fantastic breakfast

Louise is easy going and accommodating. We stayed in a beautiful wing of her house with a mezzanine bedroom. The bed was lovely and comfortable and the homely touches reminiscent of the French countryside. Louise made a huge effort with the breakfast.

Louise was extremely helpful in the lead up to our stay, ensuring we knew where to go and giving both advice and practical help in our choice of evening meal. Directions to the cottage were clear and timely. We loved the layout of the B&B section of the cottage - a separate section with lots of glorious light over two storeys. The architecture of the upper / gallery bedroom works really well and having the loo upstairs was very helpful! The bed is truly cosy and comfortable - the only reason for lack of sleep on the first night was that it coincided with the general election ... Having warm, fresh croissants after delicious fruit, granola and fresh yoghurt accompanied by fab coffee was an exhilarating start to our short trip away.

Louise User Profile

Louise Luiggi - I acquired this very exotic surname from my Corsican / French husband Stéphane. We're a bilingual family - you'll hear us switching between French and English quite frequently. In true Gallic style, we love cooking and fresh, seasonal food, in fact we own a restaurant in Nottingham called French Living! You will discover a relaxed, laid-back, busy home at Notown, with the kitchen as the hub, continuously producing food, particularly for our teenage, tennis playing son. French radio plays as Stef cooks; in fact you have access to all French TV channels in your lounge. Notown is a pretty unusual place to stay - a wonderful blend of English cottage with French rustic gite!
