Good Hotel Guide Review
‘At the end of a country lane, yet close to the beautiful Georgian town’, ‘charming owners’ Alan and Linda Palmer run their B&B in a Georgian-style former Victorian rectory. It keeps company in the hamlet with a Norman church rebuilt in the 19th century, amid ‘the calm, deep peace’ of the Wolds beloved of local lad Alfred Tennyson. Come into the garden, Maud, or sit in the conservatory, and you might spot fox or pheasant, even herons on the lawn amid the mature trees. Inside, ‘the decor and furniture are wonderful throughout’, with deep leather sofas, books and paintings; traditionally furnished bedrooms have ‘lots of lovely touches’. A suite with a sofa bed and a private sitting room can accommodate a family. Early risers may breakfast at 6.30 am, slugabeds ‘as late as you like – within reason’. Ingredients are local where possible – Lincolnshire sausages, free-range eggs, kippers, smoked haddock – with vegetarian options. The shops, pubs and restaurants of historic Louth are two miles away; the beaches and bird sanctuaries of the wild coastline a short drive.
