Perfect, just perfect in every way! One of the best kept secrets in Gautsby!! Lou is the most amazing bubbly lady, the perfect hostess. Not only did she make us all feel so welcomed into her private home but went the extra mile, quite literally, organising a private 'taxi' service to Lincoln, there and back again (thank you George). If you use this service make sure you pay him handsomely well as he's worth every penny and even diverted off route to the local supermarket for us all. Nothing is too much trouble whilst your a guest here, the rooms are fabulous with lots of extra thoughtful touches added to make your stay extra special. The house is absolutely beautiful surrounded with uninterrupted views of the open countryside. Peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. Breakfast was plentiful using local produce perfectly cooked with copious cups of unlimited fresh tea/coffee offered throughout our stay and free WiFi to boot! This was our first ever airbnb experience, you've set the bar high Lou, thank you for making our 'ladies get together' weekend so perfect..... we will most definitely return :) Karen, Sharron and Lucy x

I usually travel alone but I had a friend with me and we booked a twin room which was lovely. Louise welcomed us with warm mince pies and mulled wine! She was very knowledgeable about the local area and Lincoln city which helped planning our visit. Breakfast was lovely with home made jam and marmalade yum. It's a beautiful house in a great rural location. They were also very accommodating because I had booked before and had to re-schedule owing to illness, but enjoyed the trip immensely. Not to be missed.

Lou and Hugh are wonderful hosts, they were so friendly and very welcoming! We felt very comfortable during our stay and slept well in a immaculately clean room, we had a superb view into the walled garden and unspoilt picturesque fields beyond. Our hosts were very flexible, allowing us to check in late during the evening after attending an event. Lou took time to get to know us, finding out that Stephen King is my favourite author, Lou had a range of books in our bedroom and insisted I have a copy of Stephen King's latest book as I hadn't yet read it! I felt that Lou really went that extra mile to ensure both my partner and I had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxed stay. Lou offered suggestions of places to visit during our stay, we found this very helpful as we only had a short amount of time in Lincolnshire. Breakfast was delicious, all locally sourced, top quality products and even homemade Jams and Marmalade! (Which tasted lovely!) I can't wait to stay with Lou and Hugh again in the near future. I highly recommend booking this accommodation as I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Sowberry House. Lou, Hugh and family were extremely welcoming and their house is really lovely! The room was very comfortable with a powerful shower in the en suite. The breakfast was fantastic and clearly had a lot of thought placed in to catering for all tastes and requirements. I am vegetarian and Lou provided veggie sausages on both mornings as she herself is vegetarian also. I would thoroughly recommend Sowerberry house and the beautiful surrounding area.

Louise and her gorgeous family made us feel so welcome with a hot cup of tea and home made biscuits. Everything was first class and the house and gardens were to die for. They were always ready to help with local input whenever we needed it. A fabulous place to stay.
