Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England
The Hayloft at the Manor House Stables is spacious yet cosy and provides a lovely romantic retreat. We restored the Grade II Listed stables in 2008 using eco-friendly materials and traditional methods. Natural insulation, cast iron radiators and a wood burning stove mean that the accommodation is lovely and warm throughout the winter.

The Hayloft is a perfect retreat for two but there is sleeping space for 2 more in an unusual box bed in the living area (both adults and children love it!). Other features include a luxury bathroom with a copper spa bath and a shower and small sauna. There is a Rangemaster cooker in the well-equipped kitchen and a very unusual wooden fridge! A small private garden is situated at the bottom of the outside staircase with wooden furniture, a garden swing and barbeque set.

We aim to provide a special...

Just spent a couple of nights in the Bothy cottage, arrived and had a very friendly welcome. The welcome hamper and trug full of vegetables was excellent. The cottage is so cosy and warm , we really did not want to leave. Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
The Manor House Stables is ideally located in the heart of rural Lincolnshire. The geographical centre of Lincolnshire is Woodhall Spa and we are just 4 miles from there! It is an Edwardian town with shops, tearooms, a historic cinema and two famous golf courses. The historic city of Lincoln with its cathedral, castle, museums, shops and restaurants is only a 20 - 30 minute drive away. The Lincolnshire coast is also within easy reach (about 1 hour). There is a vast amount to see and do in this county! Come and see for yourself!
Getting around
Getting around Lincolnshire is really best done by car. It is a large county and many of the places to see and things to do located in the rural countryside. However, we do have guests who come here by train (nearest train station at Metheringham just 3.5 miles from here) and get a taxi here (must be pre-ordered; we also offer free collection). There are buses to Woodhall Spa and Lincoln and the train from Metheringham to Lincoln. Sometimes our guests arrive here by public transport and never go anywhere at all! They are happy to spend their time by the wood-burning stove playing board games, watching films and drinking wine! All major supermarkets (Waitrose, Tescos etc) deliver to this area so you don't need to go anywhere at all!
