A high quality self catering stable cottage in one acre of private garden in the grounds of Doddington Hall, a stunning Elizabethan Mansion House. Converted to a high standard but retaining many of the original features but not, thankfully, the horses. Two double rooms that can be configured as doubles or twins, a full sized double bunk room (and cot) for kids, wood burning stoves, nice fluffy towels, parking for two cars and use of garden and summerhouse. The Doddington Farm Shop, Restaurant and Cafe and the India Jane Interiors store and Doddington Country Clothing is two minutes walk away. In the middle of a rural village but the historic city of Lincoln is six miles away. Convenient for visiting the city, the antiques fairs at Newark or on the Lincolnshire Show Ground, the Lincolnshire countryside, or just getting away from it all.

The fantastic farm shop next door and the ease of getting Sainsbury's to deliver mean that, while one is in the middle of the countryside, getting provisions and food is not a hassle (a pleasure... more

Our stay at the Stables was fantastic. We were very warmly welcomed by Ian and enjoyed our drinks with him. He very kindly arranged for rooms to be changed around to accommodate relatives coming to stay. Flying the Flag for our arrival was a lovely touch. The house was big enough, very warm with the burner and plenty of equipment... more
