The Nook enjoys a location towards the northern periphery of the ever popular village of North Wheatley, lying off Top Street.

North Wheatley has a huge community spirit and is a popular village within the area which combined with its immediate sister village, South Wheatley, offers a variety of residential amenities.

There are two shops, a Post Office, an active pub, church, chapel, cricket field, tennis courts and village hall offering many club activities and social functions for those wishing to partake. See the village website

On the outskirts of the village are several farm shops and speciality butchers. The main shopping areas are Retford and Gainsborough although Sheffield, Doncaster, Newark, Lincoln and Nottingham are all within comfortable driving distance.

The village itself is by-passed by the A620 which links Retford to Gainsborough and Bawtry via the A631.

Retford is an attractive Georgian market town. The area in general is served by an excellent provision of communication links. Retford has a mainline railway station on the London to Edinburgh Intercity Link with King's Cross available in approximately 1½ hours. The A1M by-passes the town just to the west from which the wider motorway network is available. Air travel is feasible by convenient international airports of Doncaster Sheffield (Robin Hood) and Nottingham East Midlands.

The area boasts a fine range of leisure amenities including Clumber Park, Sherwood Forest and the Dukeries.

Leaving Retford eastbound on the A620 signposted Gainsborough, proceed through the villages of Welham and Clarborough. On approaching North Wheatley as the dual carriageway commences turn right into the village onto Low Street and immediately left onto Top Street. Proceed along and after Stone Lane on the right-hand side, the property will be found on the left, just past the grass triangle.
