A beautiful barn conversion in a quiet village, perfect for our group. The owner was friendly and gave us good information about the local area. Had a fantastic kitchen and bright, airy dining area.

The accommodation was excellent and suited our family holiday perfectly. The location was central for visiting local attractions but also quiet being a country location in a village.

An old barn renovated to an extremely high standard. I book cottages on a weekly basis throughout the UK and this is one of my favourites. Nice welcome from the owner as well.

Mrs Richardson

Beautiful cottage in lovely setting. We had young children with us and they had plenty of space to move about. A wonderful holiday! The children also liked there being horses in the stables to the rear of the property, it kept them quiet for a good few minutes at a time!

Superb barn conversion in equally superb setting. Warm welcome from owners. Very comfortable and spacious accommodation. Fascinating area with wide variety of interesting places to visit ranging from Lincoln Cathedral to excellent contemporary craft and design at The Hub, Sleaford, and including medieval churches, World War II air bases, working windmills, gardens, National Trust properties and English Heritage sites.

The Barn was fantastic and very comfortable and a great base for us to use when we were planning where to go on our weekend away. My 5 year old loved it here and liked to go and look at the horse and sheep in the field opposite the barn.

A beautiful barn conversion with modern kitchen and bathrooms. It was very clean and spacious. We visited as two families with young children.

Miss Molyneux

The Manor Barn was immaculate and you could tell it had been professionally cleaned and it is very well looked after. The location was lovely, literally in the middle of nowhere so was perfect for a relaxing birthday weekend away with friends.
November 2015
The fire alarm in the kitchen is in the vicinity of the oven which make it very difficult. When you take something from the oven then the alarm goes of, and the rest of the firealarms in the house as well. Where we were extremely worried about is when something happens like fire and escape route from bedroom on the 1st floor to the hall is no longer possible. Then you are trapped as in the upstairs bedrooms you cannot escape through the windows. These windows are too high. For save reasons this should be looked at and we see that as very important. The seat of the dining chairs are bad so you get problems with your back. Should really be replaced for the same quality as the rest of the property.
Mrs Lawrence
October 2011
Everything about this cottage was first class. The peace and quiet of the surroundings were perfect.
June 2015
A beautiful barn conversion in a quite village, perfect for our needs. The owner was friendly and helpful. The entrance/dining area is fantastic, as is the large kitchen. We were all very happy.
November 2014
traveled from Norfolk for a quiet and relaxed long weekend at manor barn,the building is just gorgeous the photos do not do it justice, this conversion has been sympathetically done and to a very high standard, its was so warm and cosy the whole time we were there, we even had a welcome cake waiting for us, i cannot compliment this place enough if i could pick it up and bring it home with me i would, it was far beyond our expectations, and a wonderful get away from our hectic work lives. thank you for allowing us a stay in this wonderful historic building
December 2014
We had an excellent stay with my extended family. The property is beautifully remodeled and lacks no convenience. It was easy to find, clean, and quiet. I would recommend it to anyone traveling with four adults and a few children.
April 2014
A really lovely property I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good base for a family holiday. We all loved the comfort of the barn and I even got used to the beams upstairs! It is a beautiful conversion.
September 2014
Nicely converted, high quality accommodation. Peaceful quiet location, and lovely walks and open countryside all around. Owner welcoming and available if needed, together with a welcome cake. Bedrooms all well equipped and comfortable large beds. Opposite the barn Harry lives in a field which delighted our 3 year old grandson, feeding him one of the highlights of his day. The kitchen well equipped but be aware of the very eager fire alarms, close the door while cooking! This is a good place all year round, can imagine being cosy in the winter, tho we went in summer and had good weather. Lots of pubs around for meals, Lincoln of course (with Mrs Browns pie shop on Steep Hill) and we trekked to Mablethorpe and what a fab beach miles and miles of it! All in all a great place and reasonable cost - thoroughly recommended

The cottage is in a delightful setting with a church at the front and stables at the rear. It is very spacious inside and has good quality furnishings and fittings, very comfortable sofas and beds, with everything you could need for a fantastic stay. The village is more of a hamlet and you would need to travel by car for any provisions or a pub visit, it is rural and very peaceful. We loved watching the horses let out each morning and returned each evening.....
December 2012
Beautifully appointed spacious retreat in a delightful small village. Plenty of room and equipment for our family of five adults, and plenty of parking space. Pretty countryside around, with some easy walks. Easy access to Boston, Grantham, some NT properties and bird-watching on the Wash. We all really enjoyed the whole week. And we all enjoyed watching the activities of the horses in the stables behind!
December 2012
Thsi was a very enjoyable experience! the place is great, full of character. Lots of small details which count for a wonderful stay! only thing missing was the potatoe masher! Shame that we stayed in autumn as we could not make the most of the lovely countryside around the barn. A definite recommendation from us!

Manor Barn is beautiful, spacious and absolutely spotless. We loved the generous sizes of all the rooms and the layout of the barn was great. It was very nice to meet the owner and be welcomed.
March 2012
I've just spent a week at Manor Barn with my husband and son and had a wonderful time. The barn has been renovated to a really high standard and beautifully decorated. We had huge amounts of space - perfect for being away with a 3 year old (and his scooter!). The barn's in a beautiful setting - next to the village church, and the back overlooks stables. There's plenty of (gated) space out the front for children to play. There's nothing at all to do in the village - apart from use it as a base for walks. There's no pub or shop, but the nearest village isn't too far away for that sort of thing. For a peaceful break in Lincolnshire I'd definitely recommend this place - it was really lovely.
January 2012
I stayed at Manor Barn for a long weekend in November to celebrate my birthday. On arrival we were delighted by the high standard of cleanliness and decor and even more importantly the space. The barn was exactly what we were looking for and we were very pleased with our choice of accommodation!
