Where you’ll be

Lowdham, England, United Kingdom

Old School Mews was built as an Anglican school in 1843 to house a hundred pupils.

Since that time many hundreds of people have passed through these doors.

With the passage of time, the school became outdated and was resited a short distance along Main Street where it still is today.

Lowdham Parish includes the three townships of Lowdham, Caythorpe and Gunthorpe containing 1578 inhabitants and 2901 acres of land which was enclosed in 1765, when 268 acres were allotted to the Duke of Kingston and 93 acres to the vicar, in lieu of tithes.

Lowdham is a pleasant village, situated near to the Dover Beck a tributary of the River Trent and 6 miles to the south-west of Southwell.

Lowdham was of the fee of Roger De Busil and later possessed by the Lowdhams who took their name from the village, one of whom later became the High Sheriff of the County.

The Parish Church is St Mary’s which is of a neat structure, with a spire and five bells. There are also Wesleyan and Methodist chapels close by.

We do hope you enjoy your stay here. If there is anything you require then please let us know and we will do our best to assist. Your room is required at 11 am in order for us to prepare the room for the following guest.

Just one more thing, this is a no smoking establishment, if you must please do so outside.

Village amenities include a Newsagent, Post Office, convenience store, butchers and Pub. Nearby villages feature a variety of great restaurants.
