    “We were given a warm welcome when we arrived, and there was cake and biscuits waiting for us!”


    The property is accessed down a colourful driveway and there is space to turn and reverse park in the space provided. Outside is an enclosed small sitting out area, which we used as the weather was quite good. Inside there are 2 settees with TV and Dvd (and drawer full of films) player. There was also Netflix! A new sleigh bed had very recently been purchased, we found it very comfortable. There was plenty of storage space. Note: the ceilings are all very low (my partner is 6'3) so had to be careful not to bump his head! The kitchen had all the usual amenities and a large fridge freezer. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom. Out and about, we found all the locals to be really friendly and chatty in the local pubs. If you like real ales then the 8 Sail Brewery bar is a must and is really cheap!! The Nags Head was so welcoming that we visited for the England matches. Great atmosphere. We never actually ate at the Royal Oak, but the reviews are good, especially for Sunday lunch. There are 4 good takeaways in the village, or food can be delivered to the property from Sleaford. We used the property as a base for cycling and the roads are really quiet. Though the road surface sometimes wasn't great. We would stay here again.

The property

Ivy House Barn is situated in the tranquil Lincolnshire village of Heckington.

Located in a wonderful rural location, this is the perfect relaxing retreat for yourself and your other half.

Tucked away in the grounds of the owners property, this cottage is accessed along a private gravelled drive with you entering into a heart-warming open-plan living room.

The sitting area is enhanced by a cosy sloping ceiling with beams and an exposed red brick feature wall, along with the comfy sofas where you can sit back and relax with a good book.

Wander through into the stylish, well equipped kitchen and prepare meals to serve at the dining table over a glass of wine.

This floor is complete with a charming family shower room.

A carpeted staircase takes you to a superb, open double bedroom, featuring exposed beams and even offering a comfortable sofa.

When the sun emerges, why not treat yourself to an alfresco meal out on the private patio?

Ivy House Barn rests on Heckington's High Street, the shops, swimming pool (open in the summer months only), cafés, pubs and bars are all just a short stroll away.

Heckington is also home to the UK's last remaining 8 sail windmill, which is certainly worth a visit.

Lincolnshire, known as the Bomber County is home of the RAF, with it's 100th anniversary this year, and bases such as Cranwell, Coningsby, with it's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and Scampton (home to the Red Arrows) are all an easy drive away.

Lincoln is also home to the Bomber Command Memorial.

Towns such as Boston and Grantham are nearby and benefit from a much wider range of amenities with much to do also.

Further afield, the historic city of Lincoln is a 25 minute drive away with plenty on offer.

The perfect base for that romantic retreat you've been longing for.

About the location


Boston 12 miles; Grantham 20 miles; Lincoln 23 miles

A lovely little village placed in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, Heckington plays host to a Grade I listed church and a windmill, which offers events and activities. In terms of amenities you will find a shop, a choice of pubs and bars, a swimming pool and two cafés. Heckington also has the world's only working 8 sailed windmill, and the village also hosts the family-friendly Heckington Show once a year. A wider range of high-quality amenities can be found in the charming towns of Boston and Grantham close by, whilst the striking city of Lincoln is slightly further afield yet is more than worth the trip. If scenic walking and cycling country is what you fancy, venture to the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB.
