24 North Road Retford, Notts, East Midlands
A superb 18th Century manor house set in over 5 acres of professionally landscaped gardens.
We understand that the main part of the hotel was built in 1762. The only tangible evidence for this date is a well �preserved ram’s horn with “1762” scratched on it which is reputed to have been discovered in the foundations a number of years ago when some alterations were being carried out.
There is an excellent etching of the east side of the house in Harrison’s Picturesque Views of the Principal Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, pub�lished in 1788.
This shows a lake in front of the house which was fed from rain falling on the roofs; evidently, and not surprisingly, this was found to be an unreliable source and the lake was converted into the present sunken garden.
May we take this opportunity to extend our very best wishes for the future.
