Perfect location for a 'get away from it all' break - beautiful countryside and great walking. Not far from small towns of Spilsby and Horncastle where there are pubs, restaurants and shops - you will need a car though. Hosts leave you alone if that is your wish but we're on hand if needed. Wi-Fi was excellent and allowed us to keep in touch..

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area of the Lincolnshire Wolds, but also just a short drive to some lovely beaches. A perfect stay.

If you want a secluded getaway this place is perfect. We spent Christmas here and it was bliss to get away from our normal busy lives. We could not fault the cowshed in anyway and it was well equipped and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. We cooked our Christmas Dinner there and had everything we needed. The bed was large and comfortable and the bath and shower were very good. We had our dogs with us and there were lots of walks locally. We also went into Lincoln on Christmas Eve which was about 40 minutes away and a charming city. All contact with the host was prompt and helpful. Highly recommend.

What a fabulous place! So secluded and peaceful. Amazing welcome pack - fresh bread, butter, milk and bacon and eggs! The bath is so big I (6ft) could lay down flat. Ahhh!
