In a lovely setting in Lincolnshire are two holiday homes converted from old stables. On the left, the Hayloft, up stairs; to the right, the ground-floor Bothy; come as a group and they interconnect. Not only is this restoration eco-impressive – solar panels, wood pellets, sheeps' wool mattresses, insulated throughout (floors, with wood lacquer derived from oranges, smell lovely) – the interiors are as luxurious as can be. The Hayloft's bathroom, with its deep copper bath, multiple-jet shower, fibre optic ceiling lights and sauna, is heaven; the Bothy's galley kitchen, with its cottagey splash back, butler sink and energy-efficient range (like a mini Aga) is a delight. Sherry, who lives in the farmhouse next-door, showers you with goodies: the welcome trug spills over with jams, cheeses, chutneys, plum loaf, chocolate, raspberry wine, vegetables and herbs. Get cosy amid pretty striped fabrics and wicker chairs, wood-burners, iron sconces, shuttered windows, braided rugs… and a traditional 'box bed' that a child will love. If you tire of cooking you can walk to two pubs, if you tire of relaxing you can book onto a course: Sherry offers candle making, willow weaving, knitting, crocheting, jam, chocolate… all is possible here!

  • The Hayloft and Bothy are very special places to stay and relax. And now your pet can enjoy the Bothy too at only a small extra charge!
  • Both the Hayloft and Bothy have beautiful bedrooms, lovely living areas, well-equipped kitchens, brilliant bathrooms and gorgeous gardens! Relax in a copper spa bath in the Hayloft under twinkly lights or bathe in the wooden tub for two in the Bothy.
  • Why not learn a new skill during your stay? New for 2016 is our 'Just for Two' courses tailored especially for guests staying at the Manor House Stables. Choose to make bread, chocolate or jam or learn to crochet, knit or make natural beauty products.
  • We are situated close to the Wolds, coast and fens in an area renowned for good walks, cycling, bird watching, golf, angling and the big outdoors. Try cycling to Lincoln along the Water Rail Way, spend a night star-gazing, bird watch along the coast & more
  • The Edwardian town of Woodhall Spa with its famous golf course and old-fashioned cinema and the historic city of Lincoln with its cathedral and castle are both short drives away. Visit nearby Tattershall Castle, churches or our own little Great War museum.
  • Lincolnshire is definitely a place for foodies! Great restaurants using local food abound and Farmer's Markets are everywhere! Our own local pub serves food or why not ask for a first night meal of roasted vegetables, sausages, apple crumble and cream Yum!

Guest feedback
"We had a lovely three nights in the Hayloft. The moment we walked in, the feeling of peace and relaxation was palpable. The seats and beds are so comfortable. Everything has been thought of to make your stay wonderful. The welcome pack is amazing, but who would expect to find fresh flowers and herbs, tissues in every room & toiletries of the highest quality. The Hayloft is unique in our experience and Sherry, the best hostess because she makes you feel as if you are guests in her own home. Truly the best place we have ever stayed in."
