  • "I travel fairly extensively through the UK and I tend to rent apartments or cottages rather than use hotels."

    The cottage was very tidy and clean, unfortunately the owner may need get up to speed with modern times the TV was very small, was not smart, if they're not going to supply Netflix or something similar at least a smart TV Also its probably the 1st time I've been charged to use a washing machine.

    Thank you for your feedback. Since your stay the owner has replaced the TV with a larger smart TV. Kind regards. Property Owner

    It is an idyllic location in the countryside with plenty of local attractions and quaint villages and towns to visit. Clumber Park is a mere 20 min drive away, Half an hour sees you in Sherwood Forest! The Granary facilities are of great quality and numerous. The farm animals (pets!) are friendly and fun , giving you a warm welcome when they see you by the gates . My wife and I had a great stay here and will definitely be staying here again!

  • "Susan and Sarah were extremely helpful and provided us with everything we needed."

    The location is well placed to enable us to explore the Lincolnshire countryside. As members of the National Trust we had lots of places to visit. Newark was a lovely town to visit and even the weather didn't dampen our spirits. One thing visitors need to do which is to find out the costs of entry to some attractions as some can be expensive for 2 adults like Lincoln Castle. Not good value for money at £13.50 pp. plus parking.

The property

This delightful cottage was originally the grain store for this working livestock and arable farm, but has now been lovingly transformed into a cosy rural retreat, nestled on the edge of the village of Askham.

This lovely ground floor apartment has underfloor heating throughout, making it warm and cosy no matter what time of year you visit.

The open plan living area has every comfort on hand with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area, from which you can enjoy a timeless view of the orchard.

The Granary is surrounded by pleasant country lanes, perfect for a relaxing walk or bike ride in these beautiful surroundings.

The village inn serves locally produced food and real ales, which is just the ticket for ending a perfect day.

This fantastic apartment is perfectly placed for exploring every taste from countryside to city.

Historic Lincoln offers a vibrant and contemporary day out with plenty of things to keep everyone busy.

There is plenty of history on offer with its medieval cathedral and a copy of the Magna Carta housed at the castle.

Why not walk the castle walls and take in the views across the city?

The National Nature Reserve of Sherwood Forest is a short drive away and was once part of a royal hunting forest.

The area now covers 450 acres with plenty of walking and cycling routes, and includes some ancient trees, some of which are over 500 years old.

The Granary offers a perfect retreat for that special break, whatever time of year.
