  • "A lovely homely and comfortable property."

    Spotlessly clean. Pool was brilliant, warm and well maintained. Would absolutely book again in the future. Owners on site but not intrusive in any way but sorted a couple of minor problems with minimal fuss and in a very quiet friendly manner.

  • "We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at Moortown House."

    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 !

    The house was great too, very clean, well equipped kitchen and lots of space. Great outdoor space too, really lovely woods. The owners couldn't have been nicer. We will definitely go back.

  • "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.
