I came to stay at the Fir Tree Cottage B&B for a single night whilst travelling through Nottingham to visit friends. I recieved an extremely hospitable welcome from the lovely Richard and Alison, who were the perfect hosts. I stayed in the Gainsborough room which has a balcony overlooking the beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside and an exceptionally comfortable bed. The breakfast was superb and the service from Richard and Alison was consistenly great throughout. What really differentiates Fir Tree Cottage from other B&B's is the homely atmosphere and family service provided by Richard and Alison. Beautiful setting, exceptional hosts and a scrumptious breakfast. Fir tree ticked every box and more.
(Also, Richard's many languages and interest in history make a good talking point and I'm sure many guests will be pleasently suprised, as I was).
