“Warm welcome from a lovely family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the friendliest little dog ever,closely followed by Karen who immediately made us feel at home. The accommodation is well presented, clean and comfortable; surrounded by pleasant countryside and some really nice walks along the several public rights of ways. It is the ideal place to stay if you are attending a function at Thrumpton Hall since Karen provides a drop off - pick up service. It is also an ideal location for visiting Nottingham and surrounding area. The cooked breakfasts comprises locally sourced produce and are simply delicious with the added treat of homemade jams and marmalade which you can purchase. It's a really great place to stay.

My friend and I stopped at Hillside after attending a wedding reception at the local hall. We couldn't have asked for nicer hosts, cleaner rooms or tastier breakfast. Karen, Jonathan and Little Isabelle made us feel like we were at home, I'd have quite happily moved in lol. I will definitely book to go back. 5 Stars on every aspect.

This is the second time I have booked with Karen and Jonathan and have really enjoyed each stay, albeit only for one night each time on my way back home to France. Hope to make it longer next time!
The accommodation is bright, extremely clean and welcoming and both Karen and Jonathan are very friendly and helpful.
A good convenient relaxing B& B in the rural countryside where I felt quite at home and would strongly recommend a stay if you are looking for good value for money with a convivial atmosphere.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet........Book early to avoid disappointment

Looked for accommodation near to Donington Park, where we were going to an evening event, not keen to stay at either of the hotels near the airport as don’t sleep well and noise disturbs me. Husband booked Hillside Cottage, we were both very impressed, just two rooms, lovely location, brilliant room (and the one we were in was the smaller of the two), very comfortable bed and excellent shower. The location was very rural and had a really good nights sleep. Breakfast was also excellent and the host was very friendly and helpful. Overall would recommend to anyone – close enough to the motorway to be easy to get to anywhere from there and they apparently also do room and parking for early holiday flights at East Midlands, so one to remember for the future!

We stayed at Hillside Cottage whilst attending a family wedding at Thrumpton Hall. Karen and Tony were particularly friendly and their B&B seems to reflect their personalities - warm, welcoming and extremely accommodating! Where else would the B&B owners offer to drive you to the venue and then pick you up again at midnight?!

We were a party of four so had booked both of the rooms in the separate annexe. Both rooms were beautiful - spotlessly clean, large, modern and tastefully decorated. Despite being conveniently located close to a main road, the actual location is peaceful and relaxing. A spring/summer stay would be particularly enhanced by the large courtyard and garden areas.

Breakfast was filling and tasty - really liked the local produce. A nice touch was the TV (complete with remote control!) in the breakfast room so that we could catch up with the news etc if we so wished.

I would thoroughly recommend Hillside Cottage, particularly if going to Thrumpton Hall - but get in quick, this venue doesn't stay available for long!! Many other wedding guests had tried to book rooms, so pleased we got there first!

I have stayed at Hillside Cottage many times over the last few months, whilst working away from home.

The accommodation is very comfortable, spacious with modern decor that has been finished to a very high standard.

The flexibility offered for room with or without meals and the willingness to accommodate short notice changes, makes the cottage great value for money.

The cottage has an extremely welcoming and friendly atomosphere, it really does feel like a home from home.

A little gem this stylish and modern b&b. Although on the main road (A453) from East Mids Airport to Nottingham the property stands well back from the road, around 600mtrs so it is peaceful and relaxing. Karen and Jonathan have been open for business around 6-8 months after renovating the property.
Modern, large stylish rooms with all the facilities you would want including king beds to get lost in. Hearty breakfasts all served with a smile from the perfect hosts. Very handy for East Mids Airport, Nottingham and the local wedding venue , Thrumpton Hall. Karen also does excellent evening meals given a bit of notice.
I am a regular now, for business reasons, so maybe I am biased but it is a superb place.
