Take a romantic walk through ancient countryside

Creswell, Nottinghamshire

Escape to north Nottinghamshire for a romantic break, discovering ancient countryside, decadent dining and luxurious B&Bs.

Creswell Crags is an ancient limestone gorge, renowned for its Ice Age art. Pin Hole Cave in the gorge earned its name in Victorian times, when ladies would drop a hat pin in the cave in the belief that the first man they saw when they emerged would be the one they’d marry.

Indulge in a luxury weekend break at Brown’s B&B and discover the romantic history of the area on a brisk circular winter walk from the Welbeck Estate to Creswell Crags, taking in the picturesque countryside along the way.

Treat your loved one to a delightful lunch in the Lime House Cafe, soak up heritage at the renowned Harley Gallery, and enjoy a meal for two at the Elm Tree Pub.
