Langar Hall

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

A small, quirky country house hotel with lovely staff, pretty rooms and heavenly food served in a pillared dining room


12 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Langar Hall is one of the loveliest places in this book, reason enough to come to Nottinghamshire. It sits at the top of a hardly noticeable hill in glorious parkland, bang next door to the church. The Skirving family arrived 160 years ago, building on the site of Admiral Lord Howe’s burned-down home. Much of what fills the house arrived then and it’s easy to feel intoxicated by statues and busts in the pillared dining room, ancient tomes overflowing from bookshelves, an eclectic collection of art. Lila – Imogen’s granddaughter – is now in charge, and very much following in her grandmother’s footsteps; Langar remains a quirky country house with charming staff and a touch of bohemian flair. Bedrooms are lovely, some resplendent with antiques, others with beautiful wallpapers or a grand four-poster. As for dinner, it’s a big treat, perhaps wild turbot with mussels and dill, Belvoir pheasant with cider and thyme, rhubarb soufflé with ginger beer sorbet. There’s a cocktail bar, a conservatory, a flower-filled terrace for afternoon tea in summer, then beautiful gardens that delight. One of a kind.

I stayed at Langar Hall for three nights in one of the little huts in the garden. Mine was called Angnews, it's situated in the shade of a tree next to the crocket lawn and is the coziest place you can imagine! While you enjoy the lovely food and hospitality of the Hall, you have your own space and a bit more privacy - it felt like luxury camping and I enjoyed it very much! A very, very special place indeed!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Lila Skirving

  • Built for Sir John Brownlow in 1680, Belton House is a classic english country home. Sitting in formal Italian & Dutch Gardens. The current Lord & Lady Brownlow were good friends of Imogen Skirving and have a room named after them at Langar Hall.
  • The King Of Belvoir Castle is a 4.8 mile walk starting off at the Castle and through the steep wooded hills and open arable land. Showcasing the most beautiful scenes in the Vale of Belvoir, with a stop off at a wonderful local pub.
  • Lady Bird Ballons a small family run business, local to the Vale, offer balloon rides taking off from Langar Hall. Splendid views of the countryside from above whilst sipping a glass of something fizzy!
  • Langar is a couple of miles away from the only 3 Stilton Villages. Long Clawson, Colston Bassett & Cropwell Bishop, go and visit the creameries & take some home with you!
