May is a marvellous month, with flowers blooming and a bank holiday popping up every couple of weeks. Alas, 27 of May is the last bank holiday we’ve got to enjoy until August, so make the most of the long weekend with a short break in Nottinghamshire. 

Whether you’re after a stylish city break, a relaxing rural retreat, indulgent spa break, budget getaway or a picturesque place to pitch your tent, there’s something for you in Nottinghamshire. We’ve scoured through some of our favourite places to stay to bring you some amazing last minute breaks that you can book today.

Stylish City Break

Harts Hotel - Viait  Nottinghamshire
 

Hart's Hotel


This luxury boutique hotel offers a stylish spot to stay - located in a quiet area on the edge of the historic Park Estate, but still in the heart of city, with bars, restaurants, shops and great attractions on your doorstep. Their private garden is great space for alfresco dining or curling up with a good book, and the views over Nottingham are simply breath-taking. Even better, if you want to bring along your faithful four-legged friend, book a garden room (with direct access to the secluded garden via French doors) and your dog will be welcome to join you – the staff will even point out places to drink, dine and explore with your pooch.

Indulgent Spa Break

If you’re looking to relax, revive and get away from it all, indulge in a spa break at the sumptuous Thoresby Hall.

This truly is all inclusive indulgence.

You’ll each get two hours to experience the Spa facilities, where you can chill out in the Ice Cave, revive in the Scandinavian Sanarium, envelop your senses in the aromatherapy cave and much more. The package includes a restorative Rhassoul Mud treatment, as well as an indulgent 55 minute treatment of your choice, from Swedish massage to ease aching muscles, a revitalising facial or soothing back, neck and shoulder massage with relaxing scalp ritual.

Camping / Caravan Getaway

Camping in Nottinghamshire

Holme Pierrepont Country Park  
 

Camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors in Nottinghamshire - pitch up your tent and either relax at your campsite for the day or venture out to walk, cycle or ride your way across the countryside. Situated within 270 acres of Country Park, the caravan and campsite at Holme Pierrepont Country Park is a great place for a short break.  As the home of The National Water Sports Centre there’s loads of aquatic adventures to enjoy on your doorstep, from adrenaline-fuelled rafting to lazily drifting along river tubing. Despite the site's rural feel, it’s just a 15-minute drive to city centre.     

Or if you’re looking for a pretty place to park up your caravan or mobile home then take a look at Milestone Caravan Park - an award-winning site in a beautiful rural location near Newark, with plenty of quaint towns and villages to explore and top class attractions nearby.


All of the accommodation options featured in this blog had availability for the bank holiday weekend (24 - 27 May 2019) at the time of publication. This blog was written by Claire Jones, Marketing Assistant at Visit Nottinghamshire.
