Good Hotel Guide Review
Tucked away down a farm track just three miles from the city centre, this rustic-chic B&B was a shoo-in this year for promotion from the Shortlist. ‘Nothing is too much trouble’ for artist Jane Haigh, who welcomes new arrivals with a home-made cream tea. Bedrooms are in former outbuildings, converted with wit and imagination. The Garden Room, with super-king bed, has a bath and wet-room shower, and a furnished patio under a pergola ‘overlooking a pretty garden’. Harris Room has Harris tweed fabrics, a king-size bed and a large wet room. All rooms have under-floor heating, an espresso machine, mini-fridge, milk, flowers, original artwork, and posh toiletries. In the morning, a hamper, delivered to the door, contains a cooked breakfast, fruit salad, yogurt, croissants, pain au chocolat and free-range eggs from the resident hens. Two stables and a paddock are available by arrangement if you want to bring your own horse. Advice on and lifts to local restaurants are freely given. ‘A great way to combine staying in the country with visiting Lincoln.’ ‘We were sad to leave.’ (Roger Griffiths, Chris Powell, and others)
