Retford

Retford is an attractive market town in the very north of Nottinghamshire. It is surrounded by quaint villages, including Babworth and Scrooby, which are famous for their links to the Pilgrim Fathers who started their seperatist movement here before setting out on their epic journey to America.

The Ducal Estates are very close by too, particularly Clumber Park and Welbeck Abbey, still a privately owned residence but with attractions such as the Harley Gallery open to the public.

You'll find a range of hotels, bed and breakfasts and self catering holiday cottages in and around Retford. And with lots of things to do, Retford is a great place for a weekend or short break.
