Our location

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 back drive via Long Whatton.  When leaving Whatton please either depart via the back drive/Long Whatton or turn LEFT onto the A6 (this is a dual carriageway) and use the roundabout approx. half a mile further on to come back towards Loughborough direction.  Please do not attempt to turn right onto or across the A6. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
