About the property

Alford 3 miles.

Resting on the outskirts of Alford is this semi-detached, single-storey annex, The Old Gate House Annexe.

With beautiful countryside views, The Old Gate House Annexe is a romantic base for exploring this part of Lincolnshire, within easy reach of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

You are greeted to the property by a large and private gravel driveway, before you enter the gate into the enclosed garden, where there is lawn for your furry friends to play, a patio with furniture for an evening of al fresco dining and the extra feature of a summer house which is a peaceful place to sit.

Stepping into the property, there is an open-plan living space with two sofas, one of which turns into a sofa bed, surrounding a television which has a DVD player for you to enjoy your favourite films, as well as well-equipped kitchen area where you can prepare a picnic or rustle up an evening meal to enjoy around the round dining table.

When the evening draws to a close, head to the double bedroom which offers views of the garden and storage space for you to unpack any personal belongings.

To complete the annex, there is a shower room which has a large walk-in shower, making a stylish space for guests to get ready for a long day ahead.

Take a short drive into the market town of Alford which is centered around a Manor House boasting museums and exhibitions, and also has a range of shops, two pubs, two local butchers and is home to a twice-weekly market.

The Old Gate House Annexe is set so closely to the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB which is a scenic spot for walking and cycling, and also nearby you can hop on board the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway between Ludborough and North Thoresby.

Also within driving distance you can discover the birds and animals at Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens, discover the ruins of the 13th century Bolingbroke Castle which was the birthplace of Henry IV, or relax on the golden sandy beaches at Mablethorpe and Skegness which both have Seal Sanctuary's.

About the location


Mablethorpe 8 miles; Skegness 11 miles; Louth 14 miles; Horncastle 15 miles.

Alford is a charming market town in Lincolnshire. It is set at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is about 11 miles north-west of the coastal resort of Skegness. There is a wide range of shops including a pharmacy, grocers and two butchers as well as a large shop which specialises in doll’s houses and their contents. Alford has become an important centre for arts and crafts with many markets held throughout the year. The main market is held in the Market Place every Tuesday and Friday with the craft market being held every August Bank Holiday as well as Christmas markets being held every year. Alford is known for its Grade 1 listed working windmill, which is used commercially to produce stone-ground organic flour. Alford Manor House is a central point in the town, with its exhibitions and museum as well as a tea room and open gardens. With Alford being set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to follow or even take a trip to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway or Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens, where you will find plenty of birds and animals, with plenty of space to sit and relax with great views of the old mill. Within 30 mins, you will find the seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, with great beaches, making a great playground for children and adults alike. For something different, why not visit the towns of Louth or Horncastle, which both have a good range of shops and pubs as well as regular street and farmers markets? Whatever you decide to do, you will not be short of choice for your holiday in this lovely area of Lincolnshire.
