Rating Assessment

We are advised by Bassetlaw Local Authority that The Old Rectory is in rating Band F.


Grove itself is a small pretty hamlet in which to enjoy country living, but close to the delightful market town of Retford where everything required is readily available including schools.  Regular markets are held, including a Farmer’s Market. There is also a main line station providing an efficient service into King's Cross of 1 hour 35 minutes and access to major roads is convenient.  The Georgian market town of Newark and the historic Cathedral city of Lincoln are within easy reach.


From the centre of Retford, leave the town to the South on the A638 London Road and continue for about 1 mile until reaching a mini roundabout. Continue straight on at the first

mini roundabout and shortly after turn left at the next mini roundabout signposted to Grove.  Follow the road, passing over the level crossing, and continue for about 1 mile taking the first turn on the left, again signposted to Grove.  On arriving in the village of Grove, The Old Rectory is found on the left hand side immediately before the church.
