  • "Absolutely beautiful home, spotlessly clean and really plush facilities."

    As previous reviews have said, the only things lacking are certain basic kitchen items such as enough cutlery, kitchen tea towels (when you’re washing up for ten people the single tea towel became too wet to use!) kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets and washing powder. It would be helpful if these basics are provided given that the facilities are there to be used and we did pay a significant amount of money to stay there. However EVERYTHING else was an absolute dream and we loved it. Would highly recommend to anyone!

  • "Fantastic place."

    Had a fab time. The only advice to give is that there is a steep hill to the pub not for the faint hearted walking back up.

  • "Had a wonderful few days celebrating my 50th birthday."

    House and facilities are excellent with stunning views. Highlight is the BBQ house where we spent every evening. Just pack a torch as the walk back to the house in the dark can be tricky!

  • "Lovely location with great views, spotlessly clean, very friendly hosts."

    The children loved toasted marshmallows dipped in chocolate in the BBQ hut on the last night. The kitchen was a bit light on cutlery and dishes for the 10 of us, but we managed OK. Access, as directed, from the top road was fine but the lower route chosen by our satnav was very rough in places. Really excellent value for money (at 2021 prices) but shocked to see that the same week next year (2022) will be about £1000.00 more.

  • "This was a lovely getaway."

    It was lovely to be away from everything, but to have shops/restaurants round the corner if necessary. Thanks for a lovely time.

  • "The overall venue was amazing."

    The BBQ hut, tennis courts and hot tub were just the additions that were needed. I will be returning!

  • "A superb property!"

    Large, clean, well-equipped, friendly owners… Added bonus of the hot tub, tennis court and huge barbecue hut. Not sure how I’m ever going to top this one.

  • "Castle Top is a real Treat!"

    It delivered everything advertised we only wish we had the amazing weather we are having now. As a family it provided ample room for meals and socialising; but also enough space to ensure we were not cramped by any means. Smart TVs in all rooms were a gift as there was no arguing over Netflix! The Owners are also truly lovely people and ready to help out with any questions etc. I would only suggest that if you are to stay here and you are a family or group that cooks bring some extra Utensils and Ovenware. i,e, Pyrex oven dish , bread knife, large bowls and storage containers etc. We struggled to get food deliveries up to us but the BBQ Den was amazing and is all weather proof! Will visit again soon

The property

Castle Top Retreat offers stunning first-floor accommodation within a charming and unique property, with an elevated position in beautiful Lincolnshire.

This large, castellated structure is engulfed by glorious countryside, yet within walking distance to the village of Nettleton.

Resting all on first floor, apart from the entrance hallway and the ground level shower room, which can be transformed to a steam room for two, this wonderful getaway is perfect for large groups of friends, family holidays or a couples retreat.

Climb up to the spacious landing to find five beautifully presented bedrooms, showcasing a stylish choice of décor and neutral prints in coordinating colours, creating calm and cohesive interior spaces.

All the bedrooms boast Smart TV's, even the master bathroom features a TV built into the wall, a fabulous place to take a long hot soak with a spot of light entertainment in the background.

The open-plan living room offers a minimalist design with contemporary grey coloured sofas, offset with sleek wooden flooring and a woodburner uplifting the space.

Glide through to the splendidly appointed kitchen, with fitted modern appliances and a beautifully carved dining table and wooden benches adding a designer statement to the room.

Throw open the patio doors and step out onto the sunny terrace, the fabulous hot tub awaits your arrival, with plush sun loungers for you to soak up the peaceful country atmosphere with a refreshing beverage to hand.

Perched on top of a hill with far-reaching views, you can admire the picturesque scenes beyond the low embattled walls bordering this incredible decked area.

For local amenities, head into the quaint little village of Nettleton, or further afield, explore the city of Hull with its colourful assortment of attractions and a vast cultural feel; the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB offering walking aplenty, amongst a plethora of glorious landscape.

The city of Lincoln, with its awe-inspiring hilltop cathedral and castle, home to a copy of the Magna Carta, is 25 miles away, whilst food lovers will prefer a trip to Louth with its range of artisan shops and quaint, cobbled streets and market.

Other unique days out can be spent at Elsham Hall Gardens and Country Park where you'll find tranquil lakeside gardens, wildlife and a tea room, or get your blood flowing at Elsham Activity Centre, offering a wealth of adventure through paintballing, archery, axe throwing and even a giant inflatable assault course.

Alternatively, head to the seaside resort of Cleethorpes with gorgeous sandy beaches, fun-filled arcades and amusements.

Castle Top Retreat is a rather grand and unique property in a superb location - just what you need for a refreshing holiday escape.
