They provide a comfortable stay and can provide insight to the area that is most helpful. Gordon's a pilot and he has a great site to provide you a weather... More

Great stay again, always look forward to catching up with the hosts. I have lost track of how many nights I have spent in accommodation away from home. A warm welcome is particularly welcome and you'll be well looked after here. I have never had a better breakfast in a B&B. Can't recommend this one high enough it's in a... More

Originally from Lincoln I have lived overseas for many years. With no family left in the Lincoln area my wife and I needed a place to stay, so we chose the Orchard Inn. We were impressed! Orchard Inn offers a welcoming and personal environment, but with privacy when needed because the main suite is separate from the house. I particularly... More

This is our favourite B&B on our trips north. Friendly hosts. Quiet location. The annexe which is separate from the house is always spotlessly clean & everything works in it. This building is set in landscaped grounds which are fully fenced & are a delight to sit in on a fine day. It's just like coming home. This B&B sets... More

This is a lovely B&B. My Husband and I booked into the guess suite over night and received a very warm welcome.
