    There was a lot of hazards inside the house for kids to injure themselves. Outside, the tap was turned off by the owner even though it was one of the hottest weeks of the year (he allowed it in for 1 day when our water game broke, it was then turned off) we asked for it to be turned back on with a hose available and this was rejected! The gas BBQ had a sign telling us to use the coal BBQ which was dirty from previous holidays (old chicken wings in bottom). The outdoor fire also had a sign saying “please do not use” Not that we would have but nevertheless unavailable and not told. The Pizza oven had cob webs inside and looked as though it had never been cleaned. Inside the house needs a lot of updating, even though there was an ironing board there was no iron available, when asked for one the owner said it broke. The dials on the range cooker had no numbers or images so didn’t know which rings were on and what temp... this need updating. Also there was a high chair available but straps were broken so not useable. There were a few other small bits that needed fixing/repairing that a house of this value should really be on top of. On the plus side we were very pleasantly surprised at the outdoor space, large field for our children to play in and an outdoor play area that were not in the description although I believe this field won’t be available much longer. The hot tub was very nice and was cleaned before we arrived and as we were leaving. Overall we had a great time but wouldn’t return here.

An ancient village near the east coast of England in Lincolnshire, Swineshead is only small but is home to the Grade I listed St Mary’s Church and other Grade II listed historical buildings with some dating back as early as the 1100's that have some fascinating stories behind them. One of the village pubs The Wheatsheaf is a Grade II listed 18th century building which is definitely an excuse to go and have a drink!. Swineshead also has a village store, farm shop and hobby shop amongst others and nearby Swineshead Bridge has a railway station on the Nottingham-Skegness line. Around 7 miles North East is the bustling town of Boston offering so much in terms of activities and facilities including a West End cinema and the River Witham running through the centre.
