Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England
The Bothy at the Manor House Stables is warm and welcoming and provides a cosy retreat for 2 or 3 people. And now you can bring your dog too (small additional charge of £15 payable during your stay applies). The Grade II Listed stables were restored in 2008 using eco-friendly materials and traditional methods. Natural insulation and wood burning stoves means that they are lovely and warm even on the coldest winter's night. It is a perfect hideaway for two but there is an additional sleeping space for a child (or small adult) in an unusal box bed in the living area. Other unique features include a wooden bath made for two. The well-equipped kitchen opens out directly onto a small private garden with wooden furniture, a garden swing and barbeque set.

Absolutely gorgeous place with so many small attentions to detail. The Bothy is spacious, warm, idyllic, comfortable and was the ideal romantic time capsule to getaway in. Sherry and Irvine were very friendly and welcoming - really good people who made sure we had everything...More

About the neighborhood
The Manor House Stables is ideally located in the heart of rural Lincolnshire. The geographical centre of Lincolnshire is Woodhall Spa and we are just 4 miles from there! It is an Edwardian town with shops, tearooms, a historic cinema and two famous golf courses. The historic city of Lincoln with its cathedral, castle, museums, shops and restaurants is only a 20 - 30 minute drive away. The Lincolnshire coast is also within easy reach (about 1 hour). There is a vast amount to see and do in this county! Come and see for yourself!
Getting around
Getting around Lincolnshire is really best done by car. It is a large county and many of the places to see and things to do located in the rural countryside. However, we do have guests who come here by train (nearest train station at Metheringham just 3.5 miles from here) and get a taxi here (must be pre-ordered; we also offer free collection). There are buses to Woodhall Spa and Lincoln and the train from Metheringham to Lincoln. Sometimes our guests arrive here by public transport and never go anywhere at all! They are happy to spend their time by the wood-burning stove playing board games, watching films and drinking wine! All major supermarkets (Waitrose, Tescos etc) deliver to this area so you don't need to go anywhere at all!
