We fit 6 adults, a 2 year old and an 11month old in comfortably. The barn is a great layout with a well kitted out kitchen. Lots of parking and a lovely garden.

Great place to stay, well equipped, comfortable, clean & modern And may thanks to owners Jo and Graham for decorating the house with wonderful Christmas decorations for our stay - this was a really nice touch Reviewed by David5.0★Dec 2023 "The property was fantastic , perfect in every way from all the little touches and Christmas decorations put up ." Kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed and plenty of space for all of us we had such a lovely time and cannot thank Jo & Graham enough for all the help before we arrived , you have a wonderful place which you kindly share thank you Reviewed by Alan5.0★Dec 2023 "A great property, spacious,clean and very comfortable especially for only two of us." Felt the owners really cared about us and our stay. The only comment I would like to make is that considering the amount of beds and therefore people it can accommodate the seating provided in the lounge and its layout I think could be problematic if fully occupied. For us it was perfect and this is probably the best holiday let we have had and would not hesitate to recommend it highly to anyone thinking of renting it. Reviewed by Simon5.0★Sep 2023 "We stopped at fair Lea barn for 7 days it was better than described in the listings." We had a wonderful time there, being in the middle of September the weather was a mixed bag and we traveled to a few places in the daytime and settled in on the evenings at the house with plenty to do there plenty of games and books to read, when the sun was out and nice and warm we relaxed outside on the patio. We would highly recommend visiting fair Lea Barn and hope to return in the future. The hosts Jo and Graham left us lovely flowers and groceries for when we arrived and was on hand if we needed them. After arriving home I realised I’d left my remote control and contacted Jo who said she would post it on to me. Thank you both for letting us share your wonderful property.

The Barn is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable and showers excellent. We had great weather and we’re able to sit out in the garden on the comfortable garden furniture. The owners are on hand if you need anything, we had no problems, but it’s nice to know help is there if you need it. We would definitely recommend the Barn and hope to return soon. Thank you Jo and Graham for sharing your lovely Barn with us. Ann & Colin. Reviewed by Colin5.0★Sep 2023 "We had a great stay at fair lea barn, would highly recommend this place" Reviewed by Steve5.0★Aug 2023 "Fair Lea Barn was a wonderful place to accommodate three generations of our family and I would highly recommend it." The property was well equipped and maintained with a huge garden in a peaceful setting. We loved our day trips and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings in the garden watching the birds, rabbits and squirrels. Jo and Graham were quick to respond to any questions and provided a generous welcome pack with flowers. We met both of them during our stay and they were delightful people. Reviewed by Diane5.0★Jun 2023 "The barn was beautiful, very well situated and very peaceful." Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We would definitely go again. Reviewed by Diane5.0★May 2023 "Fair Lea Barn is spotlessly clean, lovely and spacious, with nice furniture a well equipped kitchen, and a lovely comfy bed upstairs in the main suite, there's also a garden and large patio to sit outside." I had a couple of problems, the spiral staircase is really narrow and hard to navigate, so I took my luggage up the outside stairs which made it easier. Also the fridge/freezer periodically heated up which spoiled food and put me off using it. The hosts were very pleasant, they upgraded the internet for me so I had no problem with connectivity for browsing etc. The Barn is in a nice part of Lincolnshire close to most things to do. I would recommend the local wildlife park where they care for rescued wildlife and are very knowledgeable. You need a car as there is nothing in the village but you don't need to go far to find what you need, I also had a takeaway delivered. There are trains at the bottom of the garden, lorries and construction next door but overall that only had a small impact on the enjoyment of my stay. Thank you for your feedback, I would just like to respond with clarifications to a couple of points. The spiral staircase is mentioned in the property description, I have also written in the guest handbook that I am more than happy to take any luggage up to the bedroom. You didn't mention that you have difficulty with your luggage during your stay so unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to assist. The second point is the fridge freezer, developed a fault during your stay and it did spoil your perishable items but it would have been fair to mention that we reimbursed you in full for the spoilt items and there was a second smaller wine fridge to use, which you said you where happy with at the time. We do our very best to ensure that all our guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Fair Lea Barn and sometimes things are beyond our control but we do our upmost to rectify these problems and ensure the customer experience is positive. I also note your feedback in the guest book which failed to mention any of the above comments, and quote: "Jo and Graham made me feel very welcome at the barn. I loved waking to bird song in the morning and stunning sunsets. Its a peaceful calm place to relax and escape from the busy world. Lovely clean air, comfy bed and space to just 'be'. Ideally located to visit all the attractions and the countryside, but also a lovely place to not go out from. Days in, Days out, Fair Lea Barn works well. Thank you. Christine x and thank you for the lovely flowers - so happy! and the eggs etc - much appreciated". Property Owner Reviewed by Christine3.8★Feb 2023 "Property was well equipped, comfortable and warm." The owners left a lovely welcome pack and beautiful flowers. They also dealt with any problems, small ones, fortunately, very promptly and efficiently. The house book was very comprehensive. We had a lovely time and hope to return soon. Reviewed by Val5.0★Feb 2023 "We had a lovely family Christmas in Fair Lea Barn, we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect, even the Christmas tree and decorations." We’d love to return when the weather is a bit better so that we can spend time in the garden. Reviewed by Leigh4.7★Dec 2022 "The first thing noticeable on arriving is the lack of garden, definitely a lot smaller than photos have you believe, i'd say by a good half." To the side is a building site, generally starting work about eight, there was no mention of such as any update to info given on website. There is also no mention of the railway line running through just beyond the bottom of the garden, trains thunder through both day and all through the night, you're meant to feel refreshed and recharged after a holiday, not after this one!! The barn itself was spacious and clean, although mattress in master bedroom was very much..roll together..and rather stained, could do with being replaced. Would i return, recommend, no. Hi there, The garden hasn't been halved. We have re-established the correct boundary which is now defined by a traditional Lincolnshire oak fence and hawthorn hedging. There is building work next door, which is our property. These works will be completed very soon, so far no other guests have had cause to be upset by the works, which have been and continue to be limited to normal working hours only, apologies for any inconvenience caused during your stay. There is a railway line, opened in 1847 at the far boundary of the property. The train line is a minor branch line with approximately 8-10 trains per day depending on time of year. We have not received any other negative remarks about the trains , only positive comments especially from guests with children. The mattress are inspected on a weekly basis and we could not locate any stains, the softness may be a personal preference as we have had no other complaints. Kind regards Property Owner Reviewed by Malcolm2.8★Sep 2022 "Fair Lea Barn was just as advertised, a top notch rural stable conversion in Lincolnshire, out of town but near enough to all amenities." With all mod cons and everything you could wish for in a holiday home. The owners were not on your doorstep but near enough to help with any concerns. Lincoln has a lot to offer as a holiday destination especially with all of its history, its crowning jewel being Lincoln Castle dating back well over a thousand years. We enjoyed our stay. The only point of criticism we had was the building work going on in the house next door. To compensate for that the owners invited us for a complementary stay next year! Which we were delighted to accept. This is above and beyond what anyone could expect, and just goes to show the type of people you are dealing with. Thank you Jo and Graham we are very much looking forward to our stay next year. Reviewed by Neil5.0★Jun 2022 "Delightful accommodation, welcome basket was a nice touch and much appreciated."

The kitchen was well stocked and the welcome basket a delight. We enjoyed using the garden and watching the birds come and go. The area has many wonderful places to visit and we also just enjoyed walking out each day on a new route. Hope to return.

Jo and Graham were perfect hosts, we will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Reviewed by Deborah5.0★Oct 2021 "Fair Lea Barn is an absolutely beautiful, excellently equipped converted barn to spend a week." We were 7 adults and loved the spaciousness of Fair Lea Barn both inside and out. Everything was quality from the generous Welcome Box, together with beautiful flowers that lasted the whole week, to the quality furniture and fittings. The spiral staircase is perhaps a bit of a problem having to manoeuvre cases through the gap. Another toilet on the ground floor would be very, very useful as once downstairs 7 using one bathroom including toilet and shower facilities had to be carefully negotiated at times. Nevertheless we wouldn’t hesitate in returning to this beautiful accommodation so close to Lincoln and would definitely recommend it to others. Reviewed by Ruth4.7★Sep 2021 "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fair Lea Barn." House was spacious with everything you could possibly need. Owners were very helpful and had provided a lovely welcome pack and flowers. One small point might be that the spiral staircase might be awkward for anyone with mobility problems. Property was located a short drive from the city of Lincoln - we used the Park and Ride facility which took us to the town centre.

The outside space was perfect for the hot weather we experienced. The kitchen was very well appointed and the welcome produce was a lovely treat. The owners were really friendly and very responsive to any queireis we had. Would just say that access to the upstairs room is via a narrow spiral staircase. It was fine for us but could be a bit tricky for those not too safe on their feet. Reviewed by Gill3.8★Jul 2021 "The home is stunning - the images do not do it justice." The lounge was very comfortable, an ideal place to relax on your own or with friends/family. Everything needed for a week's stay was provided.
