Car Colston

Car Colston is a special village.

If you were to count the finest villages in the County on one hand, Car Colston would possibly be counted on your index finger; the village is a prime example of a rural English village where cricket is still played on the village green and when stumps are drawn the players and spectators walk across to the village inn for well earned refreshment. A village protected by a Conservation Area designation, a village where there has been virtually no new development over the last fifty years and a village surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir.

The surrounding market towns of Bingham and Newark offer an extensive range of amenities and professional services and there is direct access into the main regional centres of Nottingham, Leicester and Lincoln, with a direct rail service into London Kings Cross from Grantham Northgate station, in a scheduled journey time of 75 -  80 minutes.
