Eastwood Hall sits in 26 acres of private grounds, 30 minutes' drive from Nottingham city centre. There's a Georgian manor house (pictured) at the heart of the hotel, built for use as a family home in around 1810, and later used as the Regional Office of British Coal. Today the manor is a wedding and conference venue, and bedrooms are in a modern annex at the back of the hotel complex.
The property is on the edge of Eastwood, a former mining town bordered by farms and countryside. There's a heritage centre -- Durban House -- five minutes' walk from the hotel, which used to be offices for the colliery where DH Lawrence's father worked. The DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum is the author's childhood home (open 10am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday for guided tours -- please call in advance) and is a 10-minute walk from the hotel; you can learn how growing up in Eastwood influenced the author's controversial writing. The Blue Line Trail is a walk that links all of the Lawrence-related sights nearby.
Beauvale Priory and Felley Priory are both around 10 minutes' drive away; both have quaint tea rooms that serve homemade cakes and light lunches. The Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site can be explored via the Derwent Valley Heritage Way trail, which is 55 miles long and can be reached from Belper or Duffield, both less than 30 minutes' drive away. Wollaton Hall (closed Wednesday-Thursday in winter) and Papplewick Hall can be reached within 30 minutes, and Sherwood Forest -- of Robin Hood fame -- is 45 minutes' drive away.
All 150 bedrooms are in a contemporary annex, and are decorated in neutral tones. There's an on-site restaurant and bar. Wi-Fi is free.
