  • “Peterborough may not be an obvious holiday destination but the city is surrounded by attractive countryside and pretty villages.”

    Glinton has to be among the best.

    Glinton has to be among the best. Lots of walks in the area; historic churches to explore; good pubs and restaurants to cater for more practical needs and Stamford and Ely an easy drive away. The Barn is a beautiful, well-appointed and peaceful holiday home. Waking up to find horses outside the front door was wonderful.
