The property

Long Bennington 1.5 miles.

Beautifully renovated from the old village pub of The Black Horse Inn and dating back to the 17th Century, The Stables offers lovely accommodation for a family of five or two couples.

Sitting within the rural village of Foston in Lincolnshire between Grantham and Newark, this property provides a great base from which to enjoy the best of the surrounding towns, with easy access to the A1 too.

Enter the homely sitting room and discover a snug spot to wind down in after a activity-filled day, settling on the sofa or armchair, you can watch some TV or a DVD while the woodburning stove roars within the rustic, red brick fireplace.

Head into the kitchen/diner to whip up a hearty breakfast in the morning, to be enjoyed at the traditional wooden table.

Spend sunny afternoons in the enclosed courtyard, perch on the outdoor furniture with a cool drink and let the evening roll in with colourful scenes across the sky creating a wonderful way to end another fantastic day.

Head upstairs to one of the two charming bedrooms, choosing from either the double room, where fitted wardrobes offer ample storage for your things, and a triple bunk room, so friends or little ones can take a bunk each, or a couple can opt to use the lower double bunk, providing you with a flexible sleeping arrangement with the cottage comfortably sleeping up to five people.

Take a long hot shower within the neat shower room and feel refreshed within this sleek space to begin your day well.
