Good Hotel Guide Review
A trot up the bridleway reaches this ‘excellent’ B&B, in a rural setting next to an oak wood. It is run by Jane Haigh, an artist, who provides a ‘lovely welcome’: afternoon tea, home-made scones, clotted cream; advice on local restaurants; even a lift into Lincoln, nearby. Country-cosy rooms in converted stables have their own entrance; inside are calming hues, mellow wood, bathrobes and daily baked treats. ‘Magnificent’ breakfasts in the conservatory include fresh fruit salad, Aga-cooked porridge and pancakes, and a wide range of hot dishes, using eggs from Jane’s hens; a continental hamper, with warm pastries, can be delivered to the room. Borrow wellies and the family dogs for walks. Stabling provided.
