The pleasure they get from welcoming guests into their home shows from start to finish and we would not hesitate to stay there again if... More

Margaret and Gordon welcomed us into their truly wonderful home which is filled with warmth and quality. All aspects of this very special oasis of calm are immaculately presented by this kind couple. You are unlikely to better the service they provide in any B & B anywhere in the world. A marvellous experience.

Margaret and Gordon were excellent hosts, tea on arrival in a beautiful garden. Room facilities great, slept well, and in the morning a breakfast to die for. Will visit again. Just a short drive into Lincoln or better still get a bus or the train, saves the hassle of car parks.
