Acorn Cottage is a Grade II listed terraced cottage built from local ironstone, nestled within the peaceful rural village of Tealby, 3.5 miles from the bustling market town of Market Rasen, in Lincolnshire.
This splendid property is ideally placed for exploring all the idyllic Lincolnshire Wolds have to offer and is perfect for a romantic getaway.
Walk into this sympathetically refurbished cottage straight into the sitting room with dining area, where there is a comfortable sofa, a perfect place to snuggle up in front of the Smart TV with a glass of wine whilst being warmed by the electric woodburner-effect stove in the chiller months or watch the world go by from the window seat.
The well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a lovely deep Butler sink; ideal for preparing a romantic meal to be enjoyed alfresco on a summer’s evening, as from here you can head outside to the lawned garden and patio area.
After dinner, walk up the steep cottage stairs to the lovingly decorated double bedroom and bright and airy family bathroom.
Nearby are the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, perfect for cycling and walking and for the thrill seekers amongst you Cadwell Park Racing Circuit and Market Rasen Racecourse are both within easy reach.
Wildlife enthusiasts will love the stunning Donna Nook National Nature Reserve where every November and December grey seals give birth to their pups, a truly magical spectacle attracting visitors from all around.
For those who enjoy the fascinating history of aviation, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Centre can be visited at RAF Coningsby and there is an aviation heritage centre at East Kirby.

Tealby is reputedly the prettiest village in the Wolds- a village of stone-built cottages, many of which are listed buildings, gentle rolling hills, streams and Fords. Market Rasen is a small market town on the River Rase, surrounded by open countryside and woodland and located on the western edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is a magnet for horse riders, carriage drivers, cyclists, walkers and wildlife lovers, with long distance walking (the Viking Way passes through the village) and long distance walks to explore. Enjoy a round of golf on the tree-lined, 18-hole golf course, visit the National Hunt racecourse, or spend a day on one of the Lincolnshire coast's unspoilt sandy beaches. Visit Lincoln, with its 11th century castle, beautiful cathedral and vast array of shops. For antiques lovers, Europe's largest antiques centre at Hemswell and the market town of Horncastle are within easy reach.
