Holiday Rental House
Welcome to our romantic, cosy cottage, set in the delightful south Lincolnshire village of Castle Bytham. Our lovingly restored barn conversion offers bags of character, combined with comfort and style. Exposed stone walls and natural oak are set off by luxurious furnishings and contemporary touches that even extend to large flat-screen TVs and Blu-ray players. Our work regularly requires us to stay at top hotels around the world, and we have used that experience to create a fabulous boutique-style home from home. Attention to detail is the key here – from craftsman-made cupboard doors to the chic feature roll-top bath. This self-contained one-bedroom cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway at any time of the year – just the place to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect gas...Welcome to our romantic, cosy cottage, set in the delightful south Lincolnshire village of Castle Bytham. Our lovingly restored barn conversion offers bags of character, combined with comfort and style. Exposed stone walls and natural oak are set off by luxurious furnishings and contemporary touches that even extend to large flat-screen TVs and Blu-ray players.

This self-contained one-bedroom cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway at any time of the year – just the place to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect gas fire after a long walk in the countryside. That said, the property is equally well suited to families or two couples, as there is a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge. Situated at the end of our drive, the cottage has off-road parking for up to two cars and a lovely patio area for the exclusive use of guests. Glen Cottage enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting, and is within easy walking distance of two pubs (serving excellent food and real ale). Children are welcome; but unfortunately we are unable to accommodate pets, or smokers.More

Additional amenities & feature info
The Living Room incorporates the kitchen and dining areas. Curtains are courtesy of Laura Ashley, and lighting is controlled by two dimmer switches at the front door. For added character, one wall has exposed stonework, and there is a good quality sofa bed made by Multi-York. Heating is by thermostatically controlled electric panel heaters,and a 6.7kw gas fired wood burner in the living room – so it’s nice and cosy. The living room has sliding folding doors, and matching patio doors. There is a wall mounted 42' TV with TV and recessed DVD/Blu-ray player. There are also DVD's CD's and games for you to enjoy. Flooring is oak laminate throughout, with a black granite hearth under the wood burner. The stylish white gloss kitchen comes complete with black granite worktop, large combination microwave oven (not a full size cooker), a 4 ring hob with extractor fan, and full size fridge freezer. Sorry there is no dishwasher or washing machine (however, we offer a laundry service if required). The toilet is between the living room and the bedroom, and has travertine tiles, heated towel rail, make-up mirror, shaver point and bathroom cabinet. A solid oak door lead to the double bedroom, where you’ll find a king-size bed with overhead reading lights and a wall-mounted 32” TV also with DVD/Blu-ray player. Alongside is a feature bath, with bronze mosaic tiles, and there’s a large enclosed mains pressure shower as well, with travertine wall tiles. A bedside radio/alarm with iPod dock has also been provided, and the bedroom also has an exposed stone wall. Also included: all heating and electricity, complimentary slippers, use of guest robes, bedding, towels, plus quality soap and shampoo. There is a welcome pack on arrival, which includes fresh milk, bread, butter, local cheese, tea/coffee, sugar, fruit, biscuits, cake and a local paper.

About the neighbourhood
Castle Bytham (with a population of 500+) is a picturesque village and quite different from what you might expect to find in Lincolnshire. It is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and woodlands, ideal for long walks. The 11th Century Norman castle that gave its name to the village is long gone, but its impressive mound remains a focal point. In June the community organises the Midsummer Fair and Street Market, which has grown into quite a major event for the area, attracting upwards of 5,000 people. Castle Bytham is the ideal place from which to explore the historic town of Stamford, just a 15 minute-drive to the south of the village, where there are great boutique shops, ancient inns, and a wide variety of restaurants. Stamford also has a leisure centre with swimming pool, i...
Getting around
You will need a car to get the most out of your break or holiday. There is a bus service which travels between Grantham and Stamford, but it's not very frequent.
