    We wernt disappointed,lovely cozy and warm retreat. Everything you need and the owner seemed lovely,even providing us with provisions for when we arrived.Thankyou

    It was lovely welcoming you to Berry Barn. I'm normally at home, but your visit coincided with school exams. I was pleased that the fireworks were not in evidence this year and no upset was caused. Please visit again. Property Owner

    Our host went above and beyond, especially when I was lost. So peaceful, quiet, some lovely walks. A warm welcome greeted my pooch and I and Catie was on hand if we needed any help. If you want tranquility, Berry Barn is for you, leaving your busy lives behind you.

    Catie is a lovely hostess and was friendly but not at all intrusive and we thank her very much for her lavish hospitality. The country setting suited us perfectly, and the dogs enjoyed their walks on the country paths, as well as an occasional beach run! Definitely to be recommended for a peaceful and comfortable break

  • "Had a lovely time at berry barn."

    It was equipped with everthing you can think of, and more. Very clean and comfortable, and in a nice quiet rural area. There is a small garden area that is secure, so my little dog could go out safely. Catie and her husband were really friendly and welcoming, on hand if we needed them, but not intrusive at all. The welcome pack of food basics, bread butter milk orange juice etc was a lovely touch. Would recommend to others.

    Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you and your husband and you are welcome back any time. Catie & Graeme Property Owner

    Located off the beaten track, an excellent spot to get away from it all, with good opportunities for cycling and walking in the area. The unobtrusive but excellent & welcoming hosts, Catie and Graham, live just over the garden wall and are on hand should you need them. Highly recommended for a quiet stay in the Lincolnshire countryside.

  • "Kitchen area was very well equipped."

    Sloping ceiling in lounge was sharper than expected. It could be improved by moving some of furniture to give more open space in centre of room where there was most head room. Also dining table could be turned at right angles to give more space with more head room. Difficult to control temperature in shower. Property in good position to cover surrounding area. Some good places for eating out locally.

  • "The cottage was situated in an attractive country position with good views and walking areas for people and dogs."

    The facilities provided were complete even down to the basic essentials for a first night (assuming the occupants had not bought any groceries beforehand). All areas of the cottage were clean and the areas were roomy with plenty of light. Catie, the owner, could not be more helpful with any requirement we may need that would be classified as a feature of the rental. We found the whole experience contributed to a restful and tranquil week. I would certainly recommend.

  • "Berry Barn is a delightful hide away."

    The cottage is cosie and warm and comfortable. Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. It is a home from home. It was a real retreat for us to escape from a busy life. Everything was there that was needed. The owners were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. We had a lovely welcome pack of food, and when we were snowed in we were given extra milk. Nothing was too much trouble. We definitely hope to return as it is handy for visiting family in the area.we found some lovely beaches for bracing walks, enjoyable any time of the year.The village is small and also has an interesting old church. A car is a must as the it is about 4 or 5 miles to a town for shopping and amenities. We loved the peace and quiet it offers as a result of its location. Would highly recommend this holiday home.

The property

Mablethorpe 5 miles.

This lovely barn conversion is adjacent to the owner's home in the rural hamlet of Strubby, within the lovely rolling countryside of Lincolnshire.

This is an upside down house with a cosy open plan living space on the first floor which has a kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

There is a double bedroom and shower room on the ground floor, both having underfloor heating, and the washing machine and tumble dryer is also located in the shower room.

There is a cute little room with a small sofa bed which is perfect for a child and this room is connected via the bathroom.

The unspoilt market towns of Louth and Alford are within easy reach and delight visitors with their street markets, small shops, summer festivals and craft days.

Gibraltar Point offers great bird watching opportunities, and there are nearby fishing lakes for anglers.

The unique, challenging and exciting circuit at Cadwell Park is well worth a visit for speed lovers, and the county offers numerous houses and gardens for those wanting a more peaceful day out.

This delightful cottage is a perfect place for pets to holiday too and there is such a great choice of walks in the immediate area and further afield, including the pastoral Lincolnshire Wolds.

The beautiful coastline of Lincolnshire is a mere five mile drive or pleasant cycle ride.

There are numerous beaches, with their badges of cleanliness, and Mablethorpe is a traditional resort offering a lovely beach for building sandcastles and for paddling, along with funfairs and arcades for all ages.

To keep the fun alive, Fantasy Island in Ingoldmells and Pleasure Island in Cleethorpes are easily reached.

A visit to Hull crosses the magnificent Humber suspension bridge and highly recommended is a trip to The Deep, one of the UK's largest aquariums.

The town is home to the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary where you can meet the seals along with an array of other friendly animals.

Donna Nook beach is close by where the seals arrive in October to have their babies on the sand dunes.

You can witness their antics and see their furry babies.

A delightful barn conversion cottage for a peaceful break at any time of the year.
