Hello, I had an excellent stay at the Oak House last week, very well-received by the owner. It is a lovely and typically english place, built in a quiet neighborhood close to shops and restaurants. I strongly recommend this house and I hope I will be able to return there.
Horncastle is also a nice village, located on the main road from Lincoln to the sea. It could be an excellent choice for your next holiday !
Regards. Alexandre B.

We stayed for one night last weekend what a lovely quiet place to stay. The welcoming afternoon tea and cake was lovely, the room was as comfortable and cosy as could be and breakfast - not for dieters, all in all a lovely night away from home, will go back.

I recently stayed at Oak House for four nights. This was my third visit and when visiting an old friend in Horncastle I would not dream of staying elsewhere. My ensuite room was very well appointed and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. It s lovely to come down in the morning to an excellent breakfast with home made bread. Jonquil goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Only a short walk to the town centre with good bus services to Lincoln, Skegness and other towns. I look forward to my next visit.

Welcoming, Spotlessly clean and must be one of the best breakfasts around. I would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Love the frog decorations in the shower room

I have stayed at Oak House often whilst attending courses in the local area. The owner Jonquil is a jovial lady, who made me feel very welcome throughout my visits. She is an excellent cook, and if you care to ask will tell you about the time she cooked for the BBC series on Lincolnshire. Her cookery skills reflect in the lovely breakfast that she provided for me, everything was thought out to the last detail, where possible food on the menu was locally sourced or home made. I was also provided with a newspaper at breakfast. The double bedroom is very comfortable, with tea making facilities and a TV. The bathroom has no bath however this was overcome by the personal touches. It is a 10 minute leisurely walk into Horncastle, where hourly buses can take you to the beautiful city of Lincoln, where the Cathedral is worth a visit.

Room Tip: Spacious double room available.
