St Anne’s House

Sutton Bonington, Nottinghamshire
Bed & Breakfast

Feel completely looked after here – afternoon tea, local and garden produce for breakfast, drinks in the evening, open fires


4 beds


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A Georgian house in the middle of pretty Sutton Bonington. Choose a garden spot and listen to the birds while your hosts bring you a pot of tea. 

Breakfast is in the orangery – you’re surrounded by a forest of greenery with banana and orange trees, ferns and a deliciously scented lemon verbena which tumbles out of a window.  Chris and Janine give you a full English cooked on the Aga with tomatoes and herbs from the garden, local bacon, sausages and honey, homemade jams.

Wander the colourful gardens, read by the fire in the snug, dip into magazines and board games, help yourself to a sherry or port nightcap.  There’s an arts and crafts gallery in the village with a café and you don’t have to go far for dinner – The King’s Head is a three-minute walk. You can also walk to the University campus in ten minutes; return to comfortable bedrooms named after flowers.

From the moment you arrive at St Anne's House, you're welcomed and cosseted. Homemade cream tea on arrival, sherry and port in the rooms for a little nightcap, superb locally sourced breakfasts including tomatoes and herbs from the garden, cooked in the AGA and served in the beautiful Orangery. Plants flourish here as they do in the wonderful garden, where intoxicating scents from the rambling roses lead you to wander and exclaim at the profusion of shrubs, fruit trees and homegrown vegetables & herbs. Choose your spot amid the beauty and drink it all in. Lovely, comfortable rooms too.
