Cuckney House


Cuckney House encapsulates period living with a contemporary twist. 

Cuckney House is a Grade II listed 18th-century country manor house offering accommodation for up to 33 people over 12 bedrooms. 

Set in a secluded woodland with manicured grounds, tennis courts, BBQ area and hot tubs, as well as space for a marquee, the grand manor house can offer itself as a small wedding reception venue, as well as a destination for events and the more traditional base for large group self-catering holiday accommodation. 

The stunning house was one of the set locations for the filming of Testament of Youth in 2014, which starred Kit Harington, Taron Egerton and Alicia Vikander.  

Each room has now been sympathetically restored by Northern Design Award Winner, Rachel McLane, offering a classic, timeless style with original architectural features.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and walks, Cuckney house is dog-friendly, ensuring every family member is welcome during your stay.  


This discreet and private manor house sits on the outskirts of the small charming stone village of Cuckney, in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire, England. The Courtyard at Welbeck, Hazel Gap Wedding Venue and The School of Artisan Food are just a few minutes' drive.

Weddings on the Welbeck estate
