  • “W, e were rather disappointed to find the village pub was closed as no where else to eat in the village and had to use car every day as nothing within walking distance if we had known this we would have chosen a different location, weather was really bad so came home tuesday ( no one can predict the english weather) but could not fault the cottage or owners both really nice.”

    Mrs J. Oxley ps i think untill pub is open you should let people know of its closure as can cause disapiontment

The property

This well-equipped, spacious single-storey cottage offers open plan living areas, with traditional country furnishings, natural slate flooring with underfloor heating, exposed oak cross beams and a stable-style door.

There is a grassed area to the front of the property, from where views of the orchard can be seen.

Also the three towers of Lincoln Cathedral can be seen on the horizon from the bedroom window and garden.

A short walk into the village finds the local public house, also serving meals.

There are 2.5 miles of bridleway on the farm for riding or walking, and there are many local lanes for a relaxing stroll.
