The charming Coach House to the Hall is reached via a tree-lined drive past fields of cows and calves; this is an idyllic spot. On the ground floor are two apartments, the Stables and the Saddle Room (with hay racks intact and the original brick floors), a communal space in between, then the Granary above, wonderfully raftered, spanning the entire floor, nabbing the best views, and big enough to seat (and feed) a party of 24. All ideal for renting separately. Original features have been adapted throughout, and neatly incorporated into modern living. In the Granary are two spacious and carpeted bedrooms, each sleeping four; those in the Stables and Saddle Room are smaller, with pine floors and furniture, brick and panelled walls. The place is generous to a fault: a welcome hamper of Lincolnshire goodies; umbrellas, sticks and racquets; books, DVDs, maps, walks and wildlife info; games, puzzles and ping-pong. In the fenced garden: a sandpit, barbecue and climbing frames; beyond, a wood with rope swings and stepping logs. All this, and the tallest parish spire in the country two miles away, in the market town of Louth.
