Full Description
Having sat secluded from the hustle and bustle of both Nottingham and Mansfield for over three hundred years, you may be surprised to discover this rustic idyll nestling peacefully, yet conveniently, between the A60 and A614. This enchanting seventeenth century house possesses the architectural facade of a French chateau with turreted-style corners and arched windows. Quite unique, the historic exterior of Cockliffe is complimented by the decadence one finds inside, with use of rich colours, heavy curtains, antiques and the skill of a local artist. It is important to us that our guests feel the warmth and intimacy of Cockliffe and that by enjoying exclusivity of the entire hotel it might become home from home. In creating this we seek to afford you your every desire, whatever scheme, theme or dream you may have in mind. Our Wedding Co-ordinators are on hand to work closely with wedding couples and provides an excellent service, listening to our brides and grooms to bring together the dream day. We are hosting a number of Show Round Sunday events in the coming months. It’s your chance to come and view the house with it dressed as a civil ceremony & wedding breakfast and we’ll be here to show you around, answer your questions and unlike a wedding fair it will just be our team to discuss your prospective wedding, whether you’ve booked it or not! If you have any questions about our wedding services please call 0115 9680179 or email [email protected] - See more at:

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
To the whole team at Cockliffe! We just wanted to send another huge thank you for making our wedding in October 2021 so perfect – we would not change a thing! Extra thanks to Sacha who has the patience of a saint and replied to an inordinate amount of emails, but never complained and made sure the day ran smoothly! You all made us feel so relaxed and so special so we could really relax and enjoy celebrating after an extra year of waiting. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Love Natasha & Michael.

A massive thank you for making our day so special!
Mark and I cannot thank Andrea & Joanne and all of the team at Cockliffe enough. We held our wedding in December and the whole house was festively dressed, which instantly gave the day the wow factor! The team could not have been more helpful, from the planning stages there was always someone available to answer questions and accommodate our requests. The day itself ran without a hitch; our guests were blown away with the stunning quality of food served during the wedding breakfast it was absolutely delicious! The room was turned around with ease ready for the early arrival of our evening guests. We had compliment after compliment so a massive thank you to everyone for helping to make our day so special.

Memories to cherish!
What an amazing experience! Cockliffe recently hosted our daughter's wedding - 26th November. The weather was awful, but we had an amazing day thanks to the team at Cockliffe. Nothing was too much trouble, the communication was fantastic, as was the food. Trying to organise a wedding from Spain brings its own little problems, but Sacha was an absolute star. I have spent half my life organising corporate events, and I have never before had dealings with a venue that just got it - and were so accommodating. Give them plenty of notice of anything you would like, and they will do their best to help you out. The day went so smoothly, and I’m picky, it was fantastic. The venue is intimate but big enough to flex to your needs. And the gardens - even when it was trying hard to snow - looked amazing. The attention to detail was fantastic. I can honestly say that every member of staff I had contact with was amazing. If your budget can stretch to the canapés, I would highly recommend them! Perfection and really imaginative. Thank you, Chef. A perfect day and just thank you all so much. Memories to cherish.
