“beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

we wish to thank Sue and Duncan for a fantastic few days away , Myself.partner two girls and dogs stayed at the Tavern whilst my parents stayed at the lounge and by far this is the best accommodation any of us have stayed in before .Attention to detail and thoughtfulness is outstanding the welcome basket consisting of tea coffee milk bread ect was wonderful as for the wine chocolates doggy treats plus more this is truely exceptional. Sue and Duncan are a lovely friendly couple and we really did not want to leave, my nine year old has asked if we can live there. we are already making plans to book again hope you will have us visit again,

“Wow - we can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Sue and Duncan have created a beautiful escape from it all in a quiet relaxing place. The accommodation is the best we have stayed in as a family in the UK. The beds are comfortable, towels are soft and fluffy and they provide everything you need from toiletries to a welcome pack including milk, bread, chocolates and wine. There is plenty to do should you choose and a trip to Woodhall Spa is a real treat. We all had a wonderful time and are already looking at dates when we will return. Thank you so much Sue and Duncan for a wonderful time.

“Best UK holiday rental ever!”
Reviewed October 24, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Just turn up with your clothes and enjoy the luxury. No expense has been spared on this property - top quality Egyptian cotton bedding and towels, comfortable bed and sofas. Anything you could possibly need has been provided. Very generous welcome pack - including dog treats! Absolutely fantastic value for money - we cannot recommend any more highly. Will definitely try to return next time we are in the area. We always self-cater when we travel as we prefer the freedom and this property is the best equipped we have ever stayed in over the last 30+ years. Thank you Sue and Duncan for such a pleasant stay.

This truly is an amazing cottage as soon as you walk through the door you can not believe the high standards, eye for detail and interior design. Guest who want amazing value for money and to be spoilt by all of the additional facilities will not be disappointed. Sue and Duncan seem to really value their guest needs providing fresh juice , milk, eggs , and bread that just melts in your mouth, jams, yummy cookies , chocolates and wine within their greeting pack,( and this was very much appriciated). It's a perfect property for a short break, a romantic weekend, or a base for the ideal holiday, For any golfers there's a nine hole course only a mile away in the village of Martin or a short drive to Woodhall spa for golf courses that are all to a high standard , Woodhall Spa had so much to offer from the most amazing and quirky picture house" Kinema In The Woods."There are food establishments to suit every ones finances , including the most delightful bakers and butchers for self catering in the cottage kitchen and then the opportunity to sit and chill out on the cottage patio with the gas heater to strike up on a cool evening or to go alfresco using the barbecue provided . Our stay was relaxed and memorable as we drifting off to sleep in a very comfortable bed with distant call of the barn owls .
