    The owner Jane is lovely and made us very welcome. The house was much larger than we expected and beautifuly decorated and extremely clean. The beds were so comfortable we had the best nights sleep. the grounds to the property are beautiful,had the weather been better we would have loved to sit outside. It would be great for children. The house is situated in a lovely quiet area but not far fron Lincoln. It was great after a busy day out we could go back to this gorgeous house and chill out. I would highly recommend this house we loved it. Pam

  • "We have been to Broadleaf House twice."

    The first time last year it was just the two of us and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The second, this August, we went with our two grandsons and their parents, maybe not quite as peaceful but just as relaxing. There is so much space for the boys to run around safely that you can keep an eye on them from the very comfortable settee in the conservatory or go out and join in with all the outdoor games provided by Jane. The house is central to many interesting places, the beach, the city, the Wolds and lots of airbases you can visit. A wonderful time was had by all three generations.

    All around you can enjoy a beautiful garden. All the furniture, the beds and the kitchen are of high quality, everything was very clean. The owner lives next door, she is very friendly and very helpful. The house is surrounded by beautiful nature in a quiet area. In the evening you can see wild rabbits in the fields. The town of Lincoln is not far away and is easily accessible by car. We would highly recommend this address.

    What can we say ....it’s a beautiful house .Clean ,spacious and warm . The rooms are large and spacious and provide ample seating and areas to gather in . The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The huge staircase and panaramic landing is to die for (stairs a little slippy as they are wooden so slippers are needed) . The kitchen ,dining area is brilliant ,talk and drinks while you cook . There isn’t anything negative about this house .Well equipped down to the last detail ...Taxi numbers available and it’s only £7.00 into Lincoln. Lovely walks and small village pubs very nice . Jane is on hand and does not encroach on the guests but is there if needed xx A lovely place to stay Thanku xx

  • "What a find?"

    Home from home! Broadleaf House is a lovely place to share with the family. The house is spacious and so well equipped . We stayed in November and were so warm and cosy. It was lovely to sit in front of the log burner in the lounge. As the accommodation is outside of Lincoln and not really in walking distance to pubs/restaurants it was great to have such a well stocked kitchen to prepare meals. We would highly recommend this house and Jane the owner was so friendly and welcoming. We are certainly planning to return.

  • "This is a very large property down a country lane which was easy to find due to the owners very good directions."

    The furnishings were comfortable and there was adequate seating, the small snug room is particularly nice and we spent our time in the house in there, the larger room with the log burner would be great for a large family but was too big for us. The only downside was the lack of any useable welcome pack, there was tea, coffee and about a teaspoon full of sugar but no milk, therefore if you are waiting for shopping to be delivered it can be a long wait. On the plus side the fire was lit when we arrived and the house was nice and warm.

  • "Broadleaf House is an exceptionally spacious, modern holiday home, which would particularly suit a family or group of friends wanting to get together."

    There is plenty of space outside for children to play safely and ample parking space for a number of vehicles. The two sitting rooms and conservatory offer great opportunities for family members to spread out. The woodland location provides a peaceful retreat, yet there are shops and pubs nearby. The historic part of Lincoln with its superb cathedral, castle and many attractive shops, cafés and pubs is only a short drive or taxi ride away. Sherwood Forest, Southwell Minster and numerous other attractions are within easy reach. Very highly recommended and great value for money. I have already booked a second visit.

  • "Provided us with excellent accommodation for our extended family."

    Separate bedrooms and especially separate bathrooms, and three toilets all appreciated. Boys liked the ability to play football etc and he gardens were safe and nice for the toddler grandson. Inside lots of space to play board games etc on wet days or just watch TV or dvd's. It gave us an opportunity to discover Lincoln ( lots of varied places of interest) and places around the area, e.g. Wisby, Doddngton, Newark and even as far as Skegness. Also nice to discover the woodland further along the Old North Wood area. A very full and enjoyable week and nice at the end of each busy day to return to our 'home from home'. Certainly a great place for families in an area not often visited.

    She greeted us and showed us around the house then left us to get on with enjoying our holiday. We knew if we needed anything we only needed to give Jane a text. The location was ideal being only 4.5 miles from Lincoln, which is well worth a visit. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. It's only a short walk to the village shop and also the woodland walks. Hull is only an hour away where The Deep is well worth a visit. All in all a great house, good location and very friendly owner.

    The home was spotless and well furnished, bed linen and towels are 5* hotel standard. There was the welcome addition of a freestanding fridge freezer in the utility room which was a bonus as the only other fridge is under counter in the kitchen (this new fridge freezer was not listed in the Sykes literature). The back garden is compact and overlooks a small industrial area, which can also be seen from the bedroom windows. However noise is minimal and did not detract from our stay. Location is excellent for city centre, local attractions and, of course, Daisy Made ice cream. Jane and her partner were so warm and welcoming, they waved every time they saw us. Jane even managed to get us a fan for the bedroom as it was so hot! Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable week, we will definitely be returning.

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!
