We stayed here for 2 nights in late August. It is easy to find and get to and there is ample off-road parking for about 4 cars. We had the ground floor garden facing en-suite room which was very pleasant and had everything you would need; TV, hair-dryer, coffee, tea, biscuits, kettle, wine glasses and a corkscrew. The bed was... More

I stayed there for a few weeks as I was working at the nearby Air Force Base for a while. My stay was very enjoyable and I felt well looked after. Val & John provided service well beyond my expectations. They were warm and welcoming and I was happy to return to this place very evening after an exhausting day... More

Absolutely delightful. Comfortable, quiet rooms. Convenient parking. Yummy breakfast to order. Christine and Howard are a joy to talk to and very accommodating. I spend most of my time on the road - this is the first time in years where my rented room felt like home. I was happy to return "home" and sad to leave. My top choice... More

We stayed in July and have nothing but praise for the Carnforth Guest House. The owners we're most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfy. The Breakfast was lovely (including the black pudding yum yum) with a lovely garden to look over. We would stay here again with hesitation.

My wife and I were visiting friends in Harmston and found this B&B to be just the job. Very clean rooms and friendly couple who run the establishment. Thanks for great stay.

We were very pleased with our stay at Carnforth. Very friendly, comfortable room and good breakfast. Easy and quick to get to Lincoln itself and ideal for our visit to Whisby Nature Park. Would definitely recommend and will return.

We have just spent 3 nights here and were very impressed. The ever cheerful Christine and Howard with his Yorkshire charm are great hosts and very helpful. The accomadation is clean and comfortable and the location ideal for exploring Lincolnshire. We also felt it was extremely good value for money. We will be back

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have a comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation with four en-suite rooms and one with its own private bathroom. The breakfast room/conservatory overlooks the garden providing a peaceful and relaxing start to the day. Walking distance from RAF Waddington makes us an ideal base if visiting family and friends or for those working there or on the South side of Lincoln. Early breakfast is available for those with an early start and if you aren't a breakfast lover we can swap breakfast for a lunch box alternative. Carnforth is only 4.75 miles from Lincoln City centre and has a good day bus service on the doorstep. With ample, free off street parking in a peaceful environment yet only minutes from Lincoln we think this is a real bonus. Excellent location for visiting the pretty towns and villages of Lincolnshire, the east coast and situated yards away from the Viking Way, long distance walking trail. ... more   less
