An attractive stone farmhouse surrounded by fields. Jane and Peter’s house is a working sheep farm, and you arrive to a welcoming cup from a silver teapot and delicious cake by the fire. If you’re peckish later too, there are homemade flapjacks in pretty, very comfortable bedrooms. In the morning, the sideboard holds an impressive spread: homemade marmalade, fruit salad, compote, cereals – and a tasty cooked breakfast to follow. Have a day sightseeing in Lincoln – the Cathedral is magnificent and the castle has a copy of the Magna Carta; explore the Lincolnshire Wolds and coast; head off early for some exciting racing at Blyton Park.
