The property

Resting within beautifully kept grounds in Spilsby, Lincolnshire is Gainsford Hall, a magnificent Grade II listed mansion nestled in the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Offering an indoor leisure room, games room, and marvellous facilities throughout the mansion, this property is the ideal destination for a decadent holiday with your loved ones.

The historic mansion dates back to the 18th century when architect S S Teulon designed the property for the Gainsford family.

Further additions were made in the 19th century including the clock tower, while today the mansion offers a tasteful mixture of furnishings.

Entering the property, the grandeur instantly greets you in the hallway, boasting a timeless décor which continues throughout the dwelling.

Spend time in the sitting room, snuggling up with your loved ones; here you will find plenty of plush seating and a 50" TV.

Two kitchens serve the mansion, home to plenty of appliances to assist your group with their self-catering requirements.

Gather at the magnificent dining table to eat your home-cooked meals while you catch up on the day's events.

The amply-equipped property offers an array of social rooms for guests' use, including a leisure room with a hot tub and a sauna, perfect for relaxing your muscles after an adventurous day.

You will also find a games room, ideal to keep any younger guests entertained and complete with an air hockey table, table football and a pool table.

Music lovers can relish in the delights of the dedicated music room which boasts a grand piano, or if you want to escape from the group for a couple of hours, spend an afternoon in the library indulging in a good book.

As the evening draws to a close, venture off to the bedrooms to rest your eyes; the property hosts eight bedrooms including a super-king-size, five king-size, a twin, and a final family room with a twin and access to a single.

Each bedroom follows the exquisite décor and guests will benefit from a private bathroom per room, where you can freshen up and prepare for the day ahead.

Take advantage of the outdoor space at the mansion; encompassed by luscious greenery and woodlands, the garden is home to a 5-a-side football pitch, as well as seating and a barbecue where you can spend those balmy summer evenings.

While you are in the area, there is plenty to see and do; head out to the local town of Spilsby with its pubs and independent shops or perhaps spend the day in Horncastle with its antique centres.

Slightfly further afield is the seaside resort of Skegness, where you can enjoy a day at the sweeping sandy beach, building sandcastles with the little ones and paddling in the shores, before grabbing a traditional fish and chip supper and heading back to your home away from home for the trip.

Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to find numerous gold courses within easy reach of the property, including Horncastle or if you prefer sea views with your tee, North Shore Golf Club.

At the right time of year, lovers of horse racing can spend the day at Market Rasen racecourse and try your luck at their meetings.

Why don't you treat yourself and the group to a day of shopping in the historic city of Lincoln, or just simply explore the beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB which is on your doorstep.

If you don't fancy cooking throughout your stay, Blacksmith's Arms gastropub is just a short walk away and serves tasty pub grub, or venture into one of the nearby towns or villages for a wider range of cuisines just a short and scenic drive away.

For a unbeatable break in a phenomenal mansion, choose Gainsford Hall.
