“High standard & quality barn renovation, comfortable and private.”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were on a touring holiday in a hired car, which did have Sat Nav, but we did have a little trouble finding the property. We saw the plaque on the gate the second time we drove slowly through the village, and once there, were greeted warmly by a very friendly hostess. The gate does need to be opened manually each time guests arrive/leave, but the road fronting the property is very quiet so it wasn't a problem, except for the gale force winds blowing fiercely for most of our stay. We couldn't therefore enjoy the outdoor back patio or garden which looked lovely, but the accommodation itself was absolutely delightful; the decor, spaciousness, quality of the fittings, charm and ambience of the interior. We had everything we needed to make our stay not only very comfortable, but also easy and a pleasure to self-cater and stay in when the weather was just too cold and dreary. We did have dinner at the 'Red Lion' in the village one night and found the meals and the service excellent. The 'Kinema in the Woods' was a fantastic experience; unique and special, and I would say is a must when staying in the area.

The weather was not on its best behaviour that week so I'm glad you enjoyed the Granary. I'd definitely second your recommendation that all visitors to the area pay a visit to the Kinema and I shall pass on your compliments to the Red Lion. I hope the rest of your trip went well and you managed to find a little bit of summer on your travels :-) Thank you again for stopping with us, Linda.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a wonderful little gem. Don't want to tell the world, but feel I need to.
I knew I had arrived somewhere special when the gate was open in readiness for our arrival. Little touches were evident that mean a lot such as towels and a bowl along with doggy treats in the welcome pack.
The place was beautifully presented with luxury touches. To sit outside in your own garden, looking at the countryside with horses in the field and ducks on the pond, and a small salad and herb garden of which you are encouraged to use was just so peaceful and relaxing.
There is lots of information available so that you can make the most of your holiday, but staying there is as much as you need.
Simply wonderful and thoroughly recommend

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Sometimes when we don't have any guests we like to have a sneaky cup of tea in the Granary garden too :-)

“A relaxing stay of an exceptionally high standard.”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A very friendly welcome by hosts coupled with an explanation of the cottage and how things work. I think the high point of the building has to be the bathroom, this by no means deducts from the rest of the property. It has been completed to a very high standard.
The property itself is central to places of interest from Heckington Windmill to RAF Coningsby and close to Lincoln which now hosts the Magna Carta.
I wish I could give a bad review to keep it ourselves alas this is not possible.
If I have to give a negative: Although called a King-size, we found the bed a little small for us, (we have a very large bed), also the bathroom tap is on the edge of the sink so it's a little difficult sometimes. For those using mobile phones on your holiday, very poor connection. This is a "normal" problem in the area difficult to make a call or send text sometimes. But these are very minor points.
A very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

“A relaxing weekend retreat!”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a fabulous weekend at the Granary. It's a perfect getaway for a long weekend of country walks and exploring the Lincolnshire countryside and coast. We were made very welcome by the owners and the Granary is luxurious with its characterful features including a sumptious bath and log burning stove. We had good weather for exploring, but we would have been happy to just stay in and relax in the beautiful property, which has stunning surroundings and countryside on its door step. We were able to bring our dog too and he was made very welcome with his own towels, bowl and treats. We will definitely visit again sometime and would highly recommend it.

“outstanding cottage”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Everything about the granary is faultless. It is a slice of heaven where EVERYTHING is perfect from the log burner in the lounge, the beautiful modern kitchen, the cosy bedroom and the wonderful tin bath and shower in the bathroom. Also not forgetting the patio outside with fantastic views. Linda & Jim are the perfect hosts, friendly and very helpful. We can't wait to return and should be on everybody's to do list....fabulous!!!!
