“A beautiful house”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at the Gables to celebrate our sons 21st Birthday, as he is at University in Lincoln. The party consisted of 3 generations, all who loved the house which is finished to a very high standard. We would have no reservations about recommending this house to all our friends and family. We would agree with previous reviews, that this is the best standard of holiday home that we have stayed in.
Thank you to Diane and Bill for making our stay so special.

“Beautiful country retreat”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed here in October with a group of friends (4 couples), this house is amazing the decor is perfect and was very clean and comfortable, there was nothing I could fault at all, the outdoor space was equally as nice as inside the animals were an added bonus we enjoyed feeding them apples and carrots, Diane was lovely and made our stay extra special leaving us a hamper with home made cake and goodies inc wine, there was lots of info on local attractions pubs and restaurants etc. This is a perfect place for peace and quiet with lovely walks down to the river and relaxing in the hot tub without leaving the area, I would definitely return.

“Great Weekend”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If your looking for a great house that sleeps 8 and 3 children this house is perfect. It has everything you need for a family gathering and although it's in a remote location the walks and surrounding area is great for the children to explore. The house is very well maintained and superbly clean. I can easily say this in one of the best houses we have ever stayed at that sleeps so many people.

What a wonderful find. Beautiful, safe, quiet location but with Lincolnshire Activities and the Coast near to hand. The property is furnished and equipt to a very high modern standard and facilities are almost beyond belief. A great experience for adults and children alike...all are provided for with TVs, DVDs, toys, books, puzzles, outside play equipment, hot-tub, BBQ and even overlooking a paddock with friendly family ponies and sheep. Diane and Bill were so welcoming and the hamper awaiting our arrival was superb. A perfect venue for our annual family (10) holiday. It will be almost impossible to surpass.

“Cocooned in Luxury”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As my wife is in a wheelchair, we had some specific requirements. Even before we arrived, Diane and Bill were genuinely keen to understand our needs and went to great lengths to make our stay as comfortable as possible, to the point of specially buying a ramp for us.

The warmth of the welcome continued as we were greeted with a basket of essentials (milk, bread, eggs, tea, coffee and even wine) and a spotlessly clean luxurious big house, with wonderful grounds.
It is a beautiful, well-furnished, and tastefully decorated property.

Throughout the week, Diane and Bill were always available for help, without being intrusive at all. Their personal touch coupled with the family history of the house made us feel more like invited guests than customers.
Being able to stroke and feed the horses and sheep brought its own therapy for some members of our group.

We have already recommended the place to our friends.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A fabulous relaxing week.

We found Diane and Bill to be genuinely friendly and helpful. However they are not intrusive at all despite living nearby.

Diane's fond memories of time spent at The Gables Retreat rubbed off on us from the moment we emailed her before even booking!.

We would not hesitate to recommend The Gables Retreat. On walking through the door we were home. Fabulous! Comfortable! Chic! Homely! Loved it!

“Unforgettable Weekend”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed here with my partner and 8 other friends for a surprise 30th birthday weekend and it was absolutely perfect!! It was everything we expected and more. Diane had thought of everything, lovely hamper filled with goodies on arrival, coffee, tea and milk, map of the area, list of places near by, pubs and restaurants we could eat at.
The house was very, very clean and not one thing to fault. The decoration in the house was perfect and fitted very well to surroundings...we all would love to have it back at home! The hot tub was one of the main reasons we booked but even without this we would come again. The animals in the garden were an added bonus where we got to feed and stroke them.
I can't recommend this place enough, 100% satisfaction from all of us. It was a wonderful and unforgettable stay. It's definitely a place we will be returning to again soon.
