4* Warner Thoresby Hall, Ollerton
The interior of Thoresby Hall is a sheer delight. Entering beneath the stunning central tower, a wide staircase takes you to the Great Hall. Explore further and the adjoining staterooms inspire just as much awe. The majestic Blue Room, named for the restored silk damask wallpaper, not to mention the Library, evocative of the era; with this sort of luxury you can indulge yourself it's all yours.

Departing the local area we make our way north to Nottinghamshire arriving at the hotel mid-afternoon with time to relax before dinner.
We take a trip to the city of Lincoln, crowned by Lincoln Cathedral, one of Europe's finest examples of Gothic architecture and which sits across a picturesque cobbled square from Lincoln Castle. Both buildings were commissioned by William the Conqueror in the 11th century so there is a wealth of history and heritage to discover. Bailgate is one of the most historic parts of Lincoln's Cathedral Quarter where independent boutiques, shops and places to eat line cobbled streets.
Enjoy a full day at leisure to enjoy the facilities and entertainment that Warner's have to offer.
This morning we have a scenic drive of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The market towns on the edge of the Wolds were traditionally the centres of rural life as places to meet, greet, buy and sell, whilst the attractive hamlets and villages scattered throughout the area adds to the charm of the landscape.
We say farewell to our hotel this morning and head back home, stopping along the way in Melton Mowbray where you may like to visit the 'Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe'. We arrive back into the local area late afternoon.
