  • "Amazing place to stay for all ages!"

    We had a fantastic time. No need to leave the house but some lovely places to visit nearby.

  • "Great property for family holiday."

    We had 3 generations who all enjoyed the location and facilities. Very private setting, heated swimming pool was a hit with everyone as was the hot tub with the adults. Rob, the owner, was helpful but left us to enjoy our holiday.

  • "This was the only house I could find with a pool and the right configuration of bedrooms for the family."

    Within a couple of hours of arrival the 10yr old grandchildren declared the place 'brilliant'. They could come and go and do what they wanted (within reason and keeping away from the pond). The house is in the country with plenty of walks round about and an exclusive use swimming pool big enough for the 8 of us to mess around in. The house has a nice 'feel' to it, the only draw back is if you have the ground floor room as we did. The floors are laminate and we could hear people moving about in the room above us, it also has the external back door which is closest to the pool etc. so was a bit of a thoroughfare during the day. We've enjoyed it so much that we've just booked for next year!

  • "Great place for a family holiday."

    Everything on site to entertain the kids, 4yrs, 3yrs and 1yr, as well as 4 parents and 2 grandparents. Good to great pub restaurants nearby and owners were friendly, available and helpful when contacted but not at all intrusive. Definitely want to go again.

  • "Our extended family holiday at Moortown House was lovely."

    Having a covered swimming pool and the added bonus of a tennis court meant that even when we weren't exploring Lincolnshire there was something for everyone to do. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of crockery and utensils. It felt like a boutique hotel, with robes, towels, toiletries and bags of character. The owners were helpful and friendly when needed and discreet at other times. If you're looking for an older property with history and beautiful grounds to explore then you would be hard pressed to find a better property for a large group.

  • "Beautiful house in a lovely setting."

    We went to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, 6 adults and 5 children (5-13yrs). The house was much bigger than we anticipated, the pool was a huge success, as was the play area and tennis court. We went for a walk directly from the house. Rob, the owner, brought us wood for the fire and fire outside. We'd absolutely love to return.

  • "We gathered at Moortown house for a family celebration."

    The house met all our expectations. It was warm and comfortable with excellent facilities for a mixed age group. The young children enjoyed the well equipped play area and the whole family enjoyed the pool, which was also very warm. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to any requests. I would highly recommend the property to others.

  • "Had a fabulous stay at Moortown house."

    The photos do not do justice to how large the rooms are. The grounds are beautiful and being developed. The swimming pool was the real highlight for us. So warm it meant we could stay in there for a long time. 3 generations had a great week. Thank you to Rob and his wife for being the most friendly people you could meet.

    We were a family group of 3 generations and everyone had fun in the pool from the toddlers to grandparents. We enjoyed the grounds too and we’re even able to charge our electric car

  • "This was a great place to stay with a larger family."

    The facilities are better than the pictures make it look - the house is amazing. And the grounds are brilliant. Lovely fire pit outside where we did toasted marshmallows, nice fruit laden trees, and the area is super. There is a coffee and cake shop just a 5min drive away, and lots of nice walk/running routes all around the house. The owners live just behind and were so friendly and helpful. Super nice people who were both incredibly friendly, but also not intrusive. The pool is brilliant. We took our little twin girls on their first swims here and it was great not to have to worry about being splashed in a busy pool. Also an easy hop off point to lots of places of interest around there: Lincoln, we also went to the Humber Bridge, cleethorpes. Highly recommend the place

    Very comfortable house and furnishings. Swimming pool used every day at least twice, by most members of the party. Plans to redevelop this area with additional facilities. A lot of work being done in the grounds, to improve lakeside walk, etc. Hot week so tennis court not used as much as it might have been.

  • "We were three families totalling 10 people and the house was a fantastic size with plenty of space indoors and out."

    The inside of the house needs a little work eg squeaky floorboards, but the owners are aware and are planning some changes. Bathrooms are lovely. Outside facilities are excellent and we had fun playing tennis, cricket etc and enjoying the BBQ and fire pit. If anything, the listing understates the outdoor facilities. It was great to have the pool, which was lovely and warm. Rob and Peidi are very welcoming and helpful and there are nice touches such as books and games to borrow.

  • "A great venue for a large family get together."

    Tonnes of space, well set up for children with two having two high chairs and space in every single room for travel cots or trundle beds (provide your own). Nice big kitchen with everything you needed plus teas, coffees, biscuits and crisps, really nice touch. We had a private chef experience and there was plenty of space for him to cook. We also had a masseuse to deliver spa treatments plenty of space and perfectly flexible and welcoming hosts. Loads of seating for our 14 guests and fans for every room which is great for the summer months. Pool was warm and there were inflatables, the roof has definitely seen better days but it did the job and I understand they plan to replace it soon. The shed provides lots of equipment for outdoor games like tennis rackets. There is a fire pit which we hadn’t seen in the advertisement, playground and a nice walk through the grounds. The twin room is downstairs with an external door so not suitable for children unfortunately. The curtains were all translucent which wasn’t ideal for summer months. But I understand they’re currently replacing these. The downstairs is very tired but that shows in the photos and shouldn’t be a surprise. The hosts plan continuous improvement so wouldn’t let that put you off. When renovations are complete this will be an unbeatable venue for family getaways!

    The property has a rich history and is a grand, comfortable “country house.” We all made full use of the warm indoor pool, and enjoyed walks around the lake. Rob was most welcoming and obliging -and particularly kind in offering help when the baby in the family group was unwell. We recommend this property without hesitation !

  • "Just returned from a wonderful week at Parkland Hall."

    The photos provided do not do the property justice. The house is set in a beautiful location, with its own private garden, patio, bbq area and summer house. The tennis court has been resurfaced and has a brand new net. The Swimming pool is the main feature, which is easy to reach from across the lawn. The water was lovely and warm, our kids loved it. It is shallow in one end and goes to 2m at the other, we spent a lot of time in here. The house is really spacious and warm and although it is tired in some places due to the age of the house and some original features, this just added to the character of the property. The main facilities, including kitchen and bathrooms are all brand new and up to date and very clean. Basic, soaps, shower gels, toilet rolls etc were provided. The dining and living area are big and spacious and easily accessed from the kitchen. The only downside we felt was the lack of storage in some of the bedrooms, especially as the bedrooms are so big, but this is something minor and perhaps something to improve on for future. The layout of the property, mainly the upstairs, did take a little getting used to, but this just added to the kids excitement and was another feature of an older property. We visited a few local towns and villages and we must say that this part of the country is beautiful. Lincoln is definitely worth a visit. Also there are some lovely beaches south of Grimsby, they are worth the drive out to. We highly recommend Parkland Hall and would definitely return for another stay.
