  • "This was a beautiful home,with lots of room for three couples and four dogs."

    Very comfortable and extremely clean, lots of dishes and cooking utensils provided. Nice welcome pack provided also. Two bathrooms and one toilet shower,bit awkward for one of the couples...but understandable in one house. The one issue....a small one is we had to purchase more toilet rolls,washing up liquid, dish cloth,dishwasher tablets,and kindling and coal for the fire. We also got a bit of a shock when we got caught in the middle of a hunt, with riders and hounds. We took advantage of the short walk to the pub in Silk Willoughby,visited the Tally Ho for dinner one night,had a day by the sea in Skegness,and visited the pretty town of Woodhall Spa. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We would defiantly recommend a visit to this part of the world,and a stay in your beautiful property. Thank you

    Thank you very much for your kind feedback. I'm sorry that you ran out of toilet rolls! The fire is laid ready for lighting with a basket of logs, and we provide enough kindling for one or two more fires, with it being self catering accommodation. Kind regards, Nicola. Property Owner

  • "Thanks Nicola, we absolutely loved your cottage."

    The cottage was lovely and cosy for a family weekend away for 9 of us. We were due to travel as one of the storms hit the UK and Nicola kept us up to date with the local weather so we could make an informed decision whether to delay our departure or travel as planned. Plenty of utensils, pots and pans for cooking, and the washing machine definitely came in handy after a very wet and muddy walk. The boot room is also brilliant for storing muddy boots. The bedrooms are a lovely size and we loved the walk in shower. The garden is a lovely size with plenty of tables and chairs - just a pity the weather was so awful that we couldn't use it. Definitely recommended - there's nothing not to like.

    Thank you very much. I hope the storm didn't ruin your holiday! Regards, Nicola. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous week in Grange Farm Cottage."

    The location was perfect for us and all our Spaniels - great walks straight from the door. The cottage is ideal for a large family get away with a great mix of bedroom and bathroom options. Because of the nature of the cottage there is a small (but well worth ) compromise on clothes storage space in a couple of the bedrooms but this did not impact upon our enjoyment of the cottage. The cottage has everything you would need for a very enjoyable break. The revelation for us was the boot / drying room - an absolute god send to clean and dry off the dogs ( and the humans) before entering the cottage. The whole group ( 7 adults and 2 teenagers and 3 Spaniels) unanimously agreed that a return visit is a must - perhaps in the summer when we can enjoy the enclosed garden. The cottage is located in a rural location along a farm track and ideally situated for exploring Lincolnshire or further afield - we enjoyed a day trip the Sandringham which the Spaniels loved. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I will try to find a way to incorporate more clothes storage for future guests. Kind regards. Property Owner

    The bathroom facilities were not suitable for the amount of people the property can accommodate There was only one shower upstairs and some of us had to go downstairs to use the toilet because you had to walk through someone’s bedroom to get to bathroom

  • "My family (from all over the country) and I stayed for the weekend at the beginning of December."

    There were 7 of us in total. The cottage was beautiful and felt very homely and welcoming as soon as we walked in. There was a fire waiting for us in the cosy sitting room and the owner had put up a Christmas tree and decorations, which was lovely as this was our family Christmas catch-up! The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need; lots of pots and pans, utensils and beautiful china. We have enjoyed eating in the formal dining room. All of the beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms are all very spacious with amazing views. We took our dog so the boot room was great for cleaning her up after a walk. The garden is totally enclosed and safe so we didn't have to follow her around and she enjoyed exploring by herself! The local pub is less than a mile away and well worth a visit. We didn't eat, but the food looked delicious. The landlord was extremely friendly and welcoming and made a fuss of our dog. There's a nice garden centre a short walk from the pub which also serves food and so much more. I would highly recommend Grange Farm! We will definitely be returning in the future, possible in the summer so we can enjoy the BBQ and lovely garden.

  • "The cottage was perfect and better than described."

    The bedrooms were good sizes, clean and beds incredibly comfortable. The ensuite had an amazing bath tub so deep I felt like I was going swimming and the downstairs shower was fantastic. The kitchen was very well equipped and had a lovely welcome package awaiting us. The living room was spacious yet cosy, plenty of room for the 6 of us who stayed. The boot room was a fantastic and well needed addition that was used daily with our dogs. For a large house it was always very warm. The local pub was lovely, dogs and children welcome and such a friendly atmosphere, but make sure to take a torch as it is pitch black,but one is supplied at the cottage. The only negative point about the whole cottage was that there were a constant presence of flies in the cottage , but we put this down to the pile of burning manure opposite the cottage,not ideal but was manageable. Perhaps fly spray could be provided? But other then that a really lovely cottage and would definitely return

    The silence only broken by the call of a high-flying raptor or the hum of a distant combine harvester. Lovely and clean, a home away from home. Great to sit out in the late evening and star gaze with just the bats and the high pitched call of an owl chick in the old tree opposite the cottage to keep your group company. Highly recommended and looking forward to returning.

The only downside was that some of the beds were uncomfortable (mattresses) and as we were a large party who filled the cottage, the configuration of the bathrooms made it awkward at night time as you have to go through other people's bedrooms. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    It worked extremely well for our extended family to come together, as upstairs is split in two. Although we were only there for the Bank holiday weekend our 2 grandchildren loved that there were some games & books there (a book of gruesome facts was particularly appreciated by them :-) ). We don't have any dogs but did NOT find the house 'doggy'. An excellent family venue.

The property

Silk Willoughby 1 mile.

This detached stone-built property is set in a quiet rural location in open countryside, close to the village of Silk Willoughby and just four miles from Sleaford in Lincolnshire.

With spacious rooms throughout, Grange Farm Cottage is ideal for families as it was originally two separate dwellings which means that there are two separate staircases.

The generously-sized main sitting room is comfortably furnished, with a large open fireplace and a bay window with views across the fields.

There is a lovely country-style kitchen which is conveniently connected to a separate dining room, offering plenty of space for a large family or group of friends to gather around the period table and swap stories.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms are bright and airy with countryside views in all directions, plus two rooms each have their own en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the large wrap-around garden is mainly lawned with a patio area next to the side of the building, ideal for a barbecue.

The garden is fully enclosed, providing a safe environment for children and dogs.

A walk down the country lane brings you to a local inn The Horseshoes, whilst nearby Sleaford with its dramatic church spire, offers a selection of excellent cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops.

This character property is ideal for exploring the County of Lincolnshire with it many attractions and historic market towns or you may wish to explore the beautiful city of Lincoln for some retail therapy or visit the magnificent Cathedral.

A little further afield, the coastal resort of Skegness offers plenty of traditional seaside entertainment for all the family.

The relatively flat Fens are perfect cycling and walking country and for further excitement, golf enthusiasts will love the championship course at Woodhall Spa.

Alternatively, spend the day at Burghley House with its collection of Chinese ceramics and Italian art whilst RAF Coningsby hosts the Battle of Britain air show every year.

An excellent property for a varied and interesting holiday.
