History and amenities[edit]

Bothamsall motte

The village is situated about seven miles south of East Retford. The parish church of St Peter and St Mary was built in 1845, replacing an earlier church from which the font was retained. Next to the River Meden at the west end of the village is a small motte-and-bailey castle.[2]

The Robin Hood Way waymarked long-distance footpath passes through the village.

Lound Hall[edit]

Lound Hall is a substantial 70-room country house which sits on the outskirts of Bothamsall village. The current house was built in the 1930s for Sir Harald Peake, but there has been a manor house on the site since the 1700s. The ruins of Haughton Chapel lie in the grounds of the estate. The Lound Hall Estate is responsible for the upkeep of a number of local churches, including Bothamsall Church and Milton Mausoleum, both of which have been under the care of the Lord of the Manor since the 1800s. The Hall was requisitioned during World War II for use as a base for the Royal Air Force, and then later became a military hospital for injured servicemen. In 2010 the hall went under a significant restouration project, financed by the Hall's owners Robert Everist and Susan Emma Mills.

The house and gardens are not open to the public but the exterior and stable courtyard can be seen from footpaths that pass through the grounds and main drive. The 1,800 acre estate reaches past Bevercotes village and includes parts of Bothamsall and also the neighbouring village of Milton.

Bothamsall Hall[edit]

Bothamsall Hall is a fine stone country house built by the Duke of Newcastle which sits on the hill in the centre of Bothamsall village. The original house dated back to c.1673 and was demolished and re built in c.1845 along with the church by the Duke of Newcastle, the stone and mullion windows were recycled from the demolished 15th century Worksop Manor with a later wing added In 1906. The hall enjoys a prominent position overlooking the village and surrounding parkland. The Hall has been referbished over the past five years (2012 onwards) most recently the coach house and stables which have been converted into annex accommodation by the current owners.
