  • "This was on of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in."

    It was very spacious, well appointed and warm. There were plenty of places to visit and its proximity to the beach meant that our two Frenchies had the run of the beach and the fields. We enjoyed our week and we’re lucky with the weather, only one wet day. We would not hesitate to recommend ‘the Barn’ to anyone considering it.

  • "Excellent accomodation, very comfortably furnished , the owners Paul and Lisa, could not have been more helpful, we needed advice on one item , as we had never used the type of shower and Paul came round , and sorted it for us ."

    even the weather, considering the weather across the country, was not too bad . finally only 33 miles away Sutton-on sea. has a wonderful beach and is interesting as well.

  • "The barn is perfect if you have a dog as the very large courtyard if fully enclosed and the dogs can wander in and out."

    Having access to the dog walking field on the caravan park is a real bonus. The whole place is beautiful and very well equipped. Lovely and clean, well designed with large light filled rooms. Lots to do in the area and the coast only 15 mins drive. Sutton on sea has a great dog walking beach. The best holiday accommodation we have stayed in.

About the location


Mablethorpe 8 miles; Skegness 11 miles; Louth 14 miles; Horncastle 15 miles.

Alford is a charming market town in Lincolnshire. It is set at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is about 11 miles north-west of the coastal resort of Skegness. There is a wide range of shops including a pharmacy, grocers and two butchers as well as a large shop which specialises in doll’s houses and their contents. Alford has become an important centre for arts and crafts with many markets held throughout the year. The main market is held in the Market Place every Tuesday and Friday with the craft market being held every August Bank Holiday as well as Christmas markets being held every year. Alford is known for its Grade 1 listed working windmill, which is used commercially to produce stone-ground organic flour. Alford Manor House is a central point in the town, with its exhibitions and museum as well as a tea room and open gardens. With Alford being set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to follow or even take a trip to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway or Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens, where you will find plenty of birds and animals, with plenty of space to sit and relax with great views of the old mill. Within 30 mins, you will find the seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, with great beaches, making a great playground for children and adults alike. For something different, why not visit the towns of Louth or Horncastle, which both have a good range of shops and pubs as well as regular street and farmers markets? Whatever you decide to do, you will not be short of choice for your holiday in this lovely area of Lincolnshire.
