Wow! I have to say simply Wow! We knew that this type of Oasis existed, it’s just we have never found it before! Purple Poppy Perfection.

The attention to detail that has so clearly been a major factor in the creation of this cottage is awesome. Everywhere I look there is another detail that has emerged.

Thank you for making our annual pilgrimage to the BUCS Rowing Championships so restful and relaxing for a change.

I feel inspired now to go and work on my own house but would be interested in hiring the team from PPC to come and provide vision and delivery.

Love it love it!

What an incredible find!

April 2017

What an incredible find! We have had the most wonderful and restful stay at Purple Poppy Cottage. Our 3 boys have been in seventh heaven – a disco ball has already been requested for our own home!

We will definitely be making this our family ‘go to’ for all future Nottingham Tennis Centre commitments and we will certainly be recommending it to family and friends (as long as we get in first!). Thank you so much for making our stay such a happy one.

A perfect retreat

March 2017

Purple Poppy Cottage is a perfect retreat! Everything is thoughtfully designed with real attention to detail. There is everything you need to relax including a log burner, an original juke box, bluetooth speaker, pinball machine, an Aga or an electric oven and hob, crisp linen, plenty of fluffy white towels and robes, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a very generous welcome pack of food and drinks. We spent two nights unwinding with friends and couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing, comfortable environment to do it in. There are three local pubs in close walking distance, we had dinner at the Lord Nelson which was great, tasty pub food, a good wine list and good service. There’s a Co-op supermarket in walking distance with everything you need and the station is a 10 minute walk. If you’re coming by car there is plenty of free parking space. A really cracking airbnb with lovely hosts, Angela and Sven who live very near by and were there if we needed anything but were discreet unless needed. I would highly recommend the cottage and we hope to come again for our yearly catch up weekend.

“Questions and Answers?

Purple Poppy Cottage / 18 December 2016

Coming in, Cor Blimey! All the wood is limey!

Sven is a God of Invention and Material Science

Copper, Iron, Steel, Glass, Perspex, Stone or Marble

He can cut it.

He is the Master of Electrics, Pinball Wizard, Jukebox Jockey

How big is his SHED? How big is his HEAD?

And he is at it again over the fence ….

Does he ever rest, thinking of details and fixings?

But, hang on! It takes two to tango, to achieve all this.

We think Angela must be the soothing balm

To keep him calm

She is perhaps the Disco Queen, so sweet and serene

We think she too has been working overtime

On the vision

All is beautiful and useful here, from the smallest cup to the cyclamen

You want for nothing!

Someone with a feminine touch has been picking out

the brilliant colours and the tasteful furnishings

Of course, all the above is just surmise

But we are so impressed with you two guys!

Notts folk are a resourceful lot

We must return to this great spot!”

Such a gem

July 2016

Our stay at the Purple Poppy was great, the cottage is amazing and the attention the detail in how the cottage has been renovated is a real credit to the owners. Fantastic features like the juke box, pin ball machine and disco ball were great entertainment in the cottage, which made our stay. Such a gem located in a brilliant location for access to Nottingham centre.
