Just spent 3 great nights at COMPTON House, owned by the lovely Lisa. A beautiful end terrace mid 19th Century listed house, tastefully restored and decorated including some quirky pieces. We saw a number of the rooms and all were really comfortable inc our own, with twin beds and enormous shower. Tea & coffee making facilities in room and then...

The beautiful front room was very inviting with a roaring log fire .Our room was extremely clean,with lots of attention to detail.

Having stayed before with Lisa at Compton House, we knew it was a classy guest house with a superb breakfast. (They make their own granola and preserves as well as home made soda bread) Our company needed a central place near a station to meet and Compton House was the obvious place. We put our flip chart up in the...

Many, many thanks for such a terrific review. We don't advertise the house as a venue for meetings nearly enough, and it is very popular, as there are 2 rooms to use and the garden in the summer, so guests can stretch their legs and even hold meetings outside if its warm enough! Compton House is a very comfortable and...

Just returned from two nights at Compton House. We wanted somewhere within walking distance of the town which was a bit different. This is a Georgian House with seven bedrooms. Lisa is a warm host who ensures everything is just right for a pleasant stay. We had the downstairs room which has a large bed and spacious bathroom plus an...

Stunning house with beautiful, comfortable rooms. Lisa Holloway cooked an amazing three course dinner for our annual family get - together and we had exclusive use of her elegant sitting room for pre-and post-dinner drinks.She even treated us to her own Damson Gin liqueur! Breakfast was amazing with home-made or locally sourced produce - no sticky little butter wrappers here!...

I've just had my second stay at Compton House and both times have been brilliant. The beautiful Georgian house, close to the centre of Newark, is furnished like an old world, upmarket country home. The main sitting room is both elegant and extremely comfortable, with a roaring fire in the grate on winter days. The bedrooms are equally welcoming, and...
