Whatton House is ideally situated as it is only 5 minutes from M1 Junction 24, 10 minutes from Nottingham East Midlands Airport and 15 minutes from East Midlands Parkway train station!
Proximity to the airport ensures a wide choice of accommodation in the area to suit all budgets for those wishing to stay a while longer. Whatton is best accessed via the front drive off the A6 or the back drive via Long Whatton. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
