The Easton Estate and The Cholmeley Arms
Easton Walled Gardens is part of the Easton Estate. The Cholmeley Arms is the estate pub. It can be very busy so booking is recommended. www.thecholmeleyarms.co.uk
Thirty minutes up the A1 from Easton is another hidden secret – the pocket cathedral of Southwell Minster, a medieval masterpiece just by Newark-on-Trent. A highlight of the architecture is the wonderful carved stone leaves and entwined flowers of circa 1260 in the Chapter House. Well worth visiting! www.southwellminster.org.uk
