About the property

Barkston 2.9 miles.

Tucked away on the peaceful grounds of Wagtail Country Park on the outskirts of Marston near Barkston in Lincolnshire, rests this delightful holiday home, Stonesthrow.

Set across one level and boasting panoramic views across the tranquil waters of the neighbouring lake, Stonesthrow is idyllically positioned for a family getaway to the East Midlands.

Park up alongside your lovely home-from-home for the duration of your trip before unloading your bags and stepping over the threshold and entering into the heart of the home.

Be charmed by the traditional yet contemporary interior of the open-plan living space, home to a snug seating area gathered in front of the Smart TV, a wooden dining table and a gleaming kitchen fit with a range of modern amenities.

Kick off your shoes and unwind as you snuggle into the sofa, flicking on the television to catch up on your favourite show as the designated chef cooks up a storm is the fully-equipped kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sociable space.

Gather together at the dining table to recount the day's adventures as you indulge in some tasty treats, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside for a spot of alfresco dining with the magnificent backdrop of the surrounding lake.

As the day draws to a close, head back indoors and prepare for bed in the family bathroom, fit with both a tub and a spacious walk-in shower, so you can choose to pour in the bubbles and indulge in a leisurely soak, or opt for a quick rinse.

When sleep calls, retire to either of the two thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, with the choice between a double or a twin, both beautifully-appointed with a neutral décor providing a calming setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Enjoy a leisurely wake up before joining your guests on the decking to soak in the morning sun with a steaming cup of coffee as you plan your thrilling itinerary for the day.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic stroll through the 25 acres of generous grounds at Wagtail Country Park, or try your luck at fishing and cast your line at the peg provided alongside the well-stocked lake at the foot of your lovely dwelling.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Marston where you'll find the community run pub, The Thorold, serving a selection of delicious meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients.

Travel to the National Trust property of Belton House, a Grade I listed country house decorated with formal Italian and Dutch gardens, a lovely spot for a slice of cake at the on-site café in a charming historical setting.

Venture further afield and visit the market town of Newark-on-Trent, where you can explore the history of the 17th century Civil Wars at Newark Museum, marvel at the striking architecture and tour the formal gardens at Newark Castle, or treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at The Buttermarket Shopping Centre.

For a memorable countryside retreat, choose a stay at Stonesthrow.
