    When I write a review for TripAdvisor, I do try to be objective and give the plus and minus points. My problem with writing about this property is, there are no negatives! I think this is probably the best places we have ever been to! Broadleaf house is set in the Old North Wood just outside the village of Skellingthorpe. The location is perfect for the country but, is also handy for the city of Lincoln. We used it as a base to visit some of the great local attractions. This is a beautifully furnished, well equipped spacious property which is incredibly comfortable. We were 5 adults and 1 under 2 year old and there was plenty of space for us all. We all had a great time and the family insisted that we plan a return trip.

The property

Broadleaf House is a simply stunning, quality house designed by the owner, only four miles from Lincoln but surrounded by open countryside.

Set within 250 acres of ancient broadleaf woodland, this is the perfect place to stay for that much-needed peaceful break.

The house has been beautifully designed, with care and attention to detail very obvious throughout.

The elegant sitting room is just the ticket for a cosy evening around the woodburner, and the en-suite master bedroom offers a light and spacious retreat, with its two windows facing east and west.

To complement the king-size bed, there is also a day bed which can provide a quiet space for relaxing, or can be cleverly converted into two full-size single beds.

Broadleaf House has a delightful balcony with seating for two, which is accessed from the feature landing.

It is a wonderful place to enjoy a pot of tea or take in the evening air in summer.

Guests can choose to dine in the kitchen or the conservatory, which commands super views of the garden, and when the fertile crops have been harvested, there is a tantalising view of Lincoln Cathedral from the edge of the garden, towering majestically above the landscape.

Whether you want to discover the city of Lincoln, with its iconic cathedral and original copy of the Magna Carta, explore the Lincolnshire Wolds or even Chatsworth House in the Peak District an hour and a quarter away by car, Broadleaf House is the place for you!
