  • "A second visit to "The Barn."

    " Still a beautiful cottage which has had some lovely upgrades, everything you need has been provided and even a welcome pack which is Grade A* The garden is just the right size for our border collie Jonty to have his run about and he likes nothing better than sun bathing there, we have trouble getting him to come in. A short walk to the local pub and the locals are still there and very friendly, nice to be remembered by the landlord. Murray and Sarah the cottage owners are very friendly, always on hand if you need anything and/or advice on where to go. .

    It was our 2nd stay. Murray and Sarah provided everything we needed including a food welcome pack. They were very helpful with my unexpected health problem. I also bought some of Victoria's plants for my garden at home. The barn is in a lovely setting by a stream. Thank you.

    The Barn is high spec, new kitchen and bathroom, and very easy to use. There is walking from the house, and the roads are very quiet and the countryside very attractive. There are lots of interesting places to visit. In the evenings we enjoyed a beer in the conservatory and watching films from the extensive pile in the sitting room! Highly recommendable property.

    The Barn was as we remembered - extremely well furnished, cosy, clean and comfortable and the welcome pack they provided ranged from milk, through cereal, bread, tea and coffee, vegetarian sausages, butter and eggs! With a lovely brook babbling literally a few yards away from the bedroom window and situated in a quiet village - it is such a peaceful getaway. However with just a 20 minute drive to Lincoln City and lots to do - like visiting the Castle and beautiful Cathedral or catching a show at the Drill in Lincoln - there’s something for everyone. We definitely recommend a stay in this property - you won’t be disappointed!

  • "The Barn is a pretty cottage perfectly situated for visiting the area, I cannot think of a single thing we needed that wasn't available."

    We took our fairly large dog with us and the garden was big enough for her, she did enjoy looking out through the fence. I would say the fence isn't very high and she could have jumped over it had she wanted to so that would be something to bear in mind if you have an escape artist. Sarah and Murray were very friendly and keen to make sure we had everything we needed but didn't intrude in any way, sorry I missed visiting the garden but will visit again without doubt. We made use of the pub next door a couple of times, very pleasant sitting out in the beer garden with the dog and just wish they did food. We have never visited the area before and found everyone to be very friendly, plenty of dog friendly places to go and we were never stuck because we had a dog with us.

    We’ve never stayed at cottage quite so close to a pub, a good pub for that matter. The cottage has all of the facilities we could have wanted and the owners were happy to chat when we saw them passing. Saying that, they were also happy to leave us be but were ready with local guidance should we need it. Please don’t let the proximity of the pub put anyone off this lovely cottage, the pub shuts at 8 every night so there is never any late night noise and the pub serves really good beer (no food so don’t expect to get fed) and the locals were so welcoming whenever we ventured in for an odd beer. In essence, a great little cottage, well equipped and a lovely spot to base yourself should you want to explore wider or just sit and enjoy the tranquility of rural Lincolnshire. We will definitely visit this cottage again in the future.

We took our small dog and the pretty little garden attached to the accommodation is very secure so that we had no concerns about allowing him to run around in it. The personal welcome we received from Sarah and Murray was wonderful after our 3 hour drive and the welcome pack they supplied was very generous and catered to our vegetarian requirements - including veggie sausages, tomatoes, butter, bread, muesli, milk, orange juice, tea, coffee and lovely sweet biscuits! If you’re intending to visit historic Lincoln it’s coastal resorts or go rambling in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds this accommodation is ideally situated for you.

The property

The Barn is a former potato chitting barn, potatoes being a major crop in Lincolnshire.

It was for some time used as a garage, before being converted into a cottage. The original beams are retained, and double height in the lounge and bedrooms creates a feeling of spaciousness. There is an enclosed lawned garden, with plenty of walks suitable for dogs from the property and in the local area. The owners of The Barn have recently redecorated, added new carpets to both bedrooms, new beds, new lounge furniture, and a luxurious shower room.
