“Top class in every way.”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We chose the Gables retreat rather late in the day as being the only property left that fitted our group needs. The property came up to expectations in every way: comfortable; clean; sensibly planned; very well modernised; spacious; having well maintained grounds; offering activities for children in the garden.
Lincolnshire surprised us, exceeded our expectations and we would happily return! The property is well situated for Wolds and for coast but the house and the immediate environment offer so much that there is no need to plan big trips out. We were very pleased with everything.

“Hen weekend with a difference”
Reviewed October 14, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Having just coming home from a fantastic hen weekend the best decision I made was to book the gables retreat in Market Rasen although the web site pictures are very impressive I can't stress they did not do the retreat justice.
My 11 hens had the best time and we could not believe the attention to detail Diane puts into the home :
From everything you need , believe me you need to take nothing to the quality of the bedding , towels , toiletries right down to the welcome pack.
I felt compelled to tell you all - visit this hidden jewel
The hot tub was ample for 8 guests
We will be back
Rolo the horse is lovely you have to say HI

A wonderful week spent at a fantastic house. A great venue for our family holiday with beautiful weather to match. Everyone loved the hot tub, all the rooms were very comfortable & beautifully decorated, kitchen fully equipped. The garden had games for the children to enjoy. Great location.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What a lovely house in a lovely setting. Ten of us stayed for one week and had a fabulous time. The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and it had everything that you would want to make you feel at home. We enjoyed lying back in the hot tub watching Rolo the horse and her three sheep friends. The gardens were also fabulous, our boys played football and swingball; and all of the adults joined in games of croquet ( found at the property). All in all a great place!

“We're Back for More!”
Reviewed August 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Last year we said "It will be almost impossible to surpass" so we returned this year! Again all expectations were exceeded and it was just like returning home. From the helpful and friendly welcome from Diane and Bill even before we arrived, to the luxury of the accommodation and outstanding provision of facilities including the magnificent welcoming hamper. The family (10 of us) enjoyed our week just as much as last year as Gables Retreat is such a safe, peaceful location, but well placed for the many attractions on offer in Lincolnshire.
A perfect venue for a three generation family holiday.

It is always lovely to hear such positive feedback, particularly from guests on return visits to The Gables Retreat, as we always want them to enjoy their stay just as much as the first time. It was lovely to see you all again and to see the children enjoying the garden and grounds so much. We hope to welcome you back again sometime in the future. Best wishes, Diane & Bill

“A real gem of a property, would recommend to everyone.”
Reviewed July 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My friends and I booked the Gables for an extended 4 day weekend break. We all had a wonderful time and would all recommend the property to other people. Just after we arrived we met the owner Diane who made use feel at home. There was a beautiful hamper left in the kitchen to start us on our way.

Inside, the property has a good layout, and we found it to have been cleaned to a high standard. Very comfortable beds and furniture. There was a selection of board games and toy for toddlers available.

Outside, the property is set in a beautiful location with plenty of space. We spent the most of the day outside where there is ample patio furniture and of course the fantastic 8 person hot tub which we used late into the evening. There was a selection of garden toys to suit all aged from toddlers, to adult.

Fabulous large accommodation and settings. Plenty of safe outdoor space for the children to enjoy playing football and cricket. Hot tub great to unwind in enabling a fully relaxing holiday. Friendly horses and sheep in the field next to the house have been well fed by the children also! Lovely walks locally and visited Market Rasen and Lincoln too, would recommend the Sunnyside Up cafe and shop for a bite to eat and to buy local sources good. Barest holiday despite the weather would recommend it to all ages.
