Ranby Hill Barn was very spacious and clean. Lots of room to spread about with 11 people we never got in each other's way. Loved being able for us to all sit down for our main meal altogether. Hot tub was great so was the pool table and table tennis table. The quietness of the surrounding area was ideal.

Ranby Hill Barn is a fabulous property, the best we have ever stayed in. It has a very well equipped kitchen, we had a 3 course meal every night and there was plenty of room to prepare, cook, serve and eat it! This was a new area for us to explore, we found some great walks and places to visit on rainy days.

We could not fault the accommodation and its facilities.

What can I say! What a stunning Barn, it was fabulous. It was cleaned to a high standard, well equipped, very roomy and there was plenty to do at the barn if you didn't want to go anywhere. We celebrated a 30th wedding anniversary and a birthday, it was all perfect. Thanks for a fantastic stay.

Mr Mahoney

We are a family of twelve from age seventy four to thirteen. Ranby Hill Barn was big enough for every body to have there own space, we all loved the pool table, Table tennis and Hot tub . It was nice to have a table big enough to all sit round together. We enjoyed our walk to the pub on Boxing Day .
Mr Gilbert

Ideal property for an annual week away with a group of our friends. Probably one of the best properties we have rented in over 20 years of doing this.
Mr Bayley
October 2015
It was a great setting for a holiday with friends numbering 10 adults and 2 dogs. The Barn was a friendly 'home' where we all had a great time. It is an area with loads to do and see and will be one we can return to in the future.
Miss Poleykett

Amazing place to stay, thoroughly relaxing break. We will definitely be heading back to Ranby Hill Barn in the future as I cannot fault it!
Mr Hollis

The accommodation was spacious, beautifully designed and decorated. We loved the hot tub, pool table and the fact that the bedrooms were all en-suite.
Mr Stevens
August 2015
The property was very spacious and had everything you could want. The hot tub was lovely, and the outdoor space was brilliant. We enjoyed playing lots of games. In our party there were four teenagers who loved the games room and playing pool, they were never bored.
Mr Metcalfe

The property was absolutely superb and the owners were extremely helpful. This was without doubt the best property we've used - and, as a group, we've been away each year since 1993! In a great location within easy reach of lots of different places.

Mrs Newsome

A spacious warm, bright house with an excellent private garden. Lovely oak wooden floors, furniture and details. Twelve people, a dog and a baby were easily accommodated in style and comfort. Pool and table tennis tables excellent.
Mrs Mitchell
December 2014
The Barn was very spacious, just what we needed for seven adults and four children. There was everything you could possibly need and it was all of a high standard. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub and the games room. Highly recommend this property for family holidays.
Mr Stevens
February 2014
The barn was as lovely, well appointed and as described. The large open kitchen and living room were perfect for socialising in our group of 9, the entertainment - including pool table and hot tub - catered for a range of tastes.

The Barn was simply amazing!
Mr Field

Fantastic holiday home - brilliant family space, as well as excellent sized bedrooms. The hot tub was a great bonus too. We will definitely be coming back.
Mrs Benton
January 2014
Very well planned and furnished. Each room having its own bathroom and also a communal bathroom on the ground floor. Hot tub was a favourite for a few of the party, pool table and table tennis for others, the local walk was very refreshing and the local restaurant was extremely good. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen clean. The whole experience was A*. A weekend to remember - thank you

This is an outstanding property. Although the online description sounds promising it does not do it justice. We had three young children in our party of 12 but the feeling of space meant that everyone could relax, both young and old. This was our first time to this part of England and we will definitely return,it's a lovely area of rolling countryside. The games room, table tennis, hot tub and the enclosed garden were big winners. There was genuinely nothing we did not like. We have had many family get-together's in large properties, both in this country and abroad and this property was the best.
Ms Carrington
June 2014
Overall I was very pleased with this property, it was an excellent way of getting together with friends. Would definitely recommend visiting.
Mrs Thompson
October 2013
The property was immaculate, very luxurious and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub, pool table and table tennis were an excellent addition and kept children and adults occupied. The owners were lovely, nothing was too much trouble, and they ensured our stay went very smoothly. I would highly recommend this property, ideal for a family get-together.
Mr Mawer

The Barn was very clean, warm and spacious, with lots of entertainment ie Hot tub/pool table/ table tennis etc. Would definitely go back. Beautiful place. Had a lovely weekend.
Mrs Almeida
January 2014
The cottage was well maintained and clean. The owner talked us through the amenities of the cottage. There were some basic items in the kitchen such as tea and coffee, milk and butter and also a home-made lemon drizzle cake which went down a treat! We had a brilliant time and would look to stay again.
Miss Parker

A beautiful spacious place to stay, and very warm.
Mrs Simpson-Vince
June 2014
Fantastic house for two or three families, we had a fab time and everyone had loads of space. Nice to have ensuite bathrooms for everyone and lots of sofas, but we spent most of our time around the enormous dining table!
Mrs Kerslake
August 2013
The house is stunning and a fantastic size for 12 people. The pool table, table tennis and hot tub were excellent features. Beautiful, quiet location. Brilliant house, we would be tempted to visit again.
Mrs Baggs
August 2013
The layout of the Barn was perfect for our needs. Having ensuite bathrooms for most of the rooms was wonderful. We particularly enjoyed having the table tennis, hot tub and pool table. This kept the children occupied when we were at the cottage. There were lots of acitivities in the local area and the scenery was amazing.
Mrs Minton
October 2013
It was very spacious, and the barn conversion was done to a very high standard. It was a lovely place to relax, with hot tub, pool table and table tennis. The kitchen/diner was very well planned to accommodate a large family. Quiet location.

We are a party of 8 seniors who have been going to self catering accommodations for more than 25 years, so we know what we are talking about. We agree to a large extent with the comments of other reviewers, but a couple of niggles about this property prevented us giving full marks. Most important of our criticisms is the noise. The floors are all solid wood or tiles, there are no curtains or any thing soft to absorb the noise. This might not bother some people but we found it very annoying. The main lounge area is poorly lit. Why on earth wasn't a window put in the blank wall? Finally although the bedrooms are all en-suite, the showering facilities are poor in some rooms. A hand held shower is not good enough. One room had no shower at all. None of these criticisms should be enough to prevent you having a good time here. It is a fantastic barn conversion (and we have seen quite a few over the years).

A group of freinds and I rented Ranby Barn to all catch up after our first years at university / in work - hence we were a group of eleven 18-20 year olds, but this wasn't a problem. We arrived and let ourselves in using the keysafe, the place was amazing and the photos didn't quite do it justice! The owner came over later to check everything was ok. The kitchen was huge and had more than enough plates etc for everyone, and the lounges etc were of a good size. We spent most of our time either playing pool or in the back garden. All the bedrooms were plenty big enough, and everything was clean and smart looking; the bedding and towels were spotless. Overall, the place was amazing and a lovely place to spend a few nights but it did have a couple of annoying niggles: - Some of the showers in the house were very weak, and wouldn't keep a steady temperature. - A couple of the bedrooms (Especially the upstairs bedroom above the lounge area, opposite the upstairs seating) were very hot, even with the windows open, meaning a few of us slept poorly. Apart from the above, the place was brilliant and I would happily go back again!

We stayed for a weekend with a group of friends, 8 Adults and 1 dog, Fab Place! There is ample parking outside, a very spacious undercover porch containing a Hot tub, Large outside table & chairs and BBQ, (didn't use due to the winter time). Inside you are greeted to a huge entrance with open staircase/landing and large living room with 3 large sofas, coffee table, tv and wood burning stove! (Lovely!) There are 3 ensuite bedrooms downstairs, 1 twin and 2 doubles. Also a separate toilet down stairs. Upstairs a further 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 ensuite and one twin with separate bathroom. and a quite seating area with coffee table. On a further lower level, is a very large kitchen/diner with large windows looking out on to the garden, with another large outside table & chairs, further through the kitchen is a utility room with microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, everything you need!! and at the other end of the kitchen/diner is a room with a big sofa area & tv and full size pool table with iPhone docking station! Also, once it kicked in, underfloor heating throughout! absolutely fab! Towels are supplied but..... i would have liked them to have been, more like a bath sheet. Other than that, can't fault the place at all!! Had an ace time! Missed it when we left.
December 2014
This place is awesome me and Seven of my friends stayed here all early 20s and had a brilliant time. Everything thing has been thought about and no expense has been spared. This place had everything we wanted we could play loud music,play pool get in the hot tub or just chill out and watch a DVD. I would go as far as to say this is the best place I have ever stayed and I created some brilliant memories hopefully we will be returning next year.
September 2015
We stayed here for a week with family, 6 adults and four teenagers 16 - 20 years, plus 3 dogs. We had a fantastic time, the place was absolutely stunning and so spacious. There was plenty to do with the pool table and table tennis and the hot tub was fab. We had two barbecues while we were there and we had lots of fun. The place was so big and had a great out door space which was not overlooked at all. There was also a lovely walk right on your doorstep where we took the dogs. I would recommend this place to anyone with a large group or family.

We stayed a week in this great Barn conversion. We were 10 adults with 2 dogs. Plenty of living space and a great choice of where to sit and eat. In the summer this will be terrific with the bbqs. The bedrooms are fine en suite equipped. Will definitely find the time to return.
April 2014
The whole building was finished to a brilliant standard, and the owner was always on hand for if we needed him! The kitchen had all facilities you could ever need from pots and pans, to baking equipment. The entire place was clean and comfy and the soft furnishings spared no expense. A great deal of effort has gone in to making this a lovely, cosy, modern building. It was difficult to locate as Sat Nav takes you to a different place, so i would recommend taking a good old fashioned map!

What a beautiful property this is. Not only is it furnished and decorated beautifully it is also in a fabulous location. If you want peace and quiet with lovely walks its there, if you want the hustle and bustle of shops and restaurants you are close enough to Horncastle. The owners live close by and nothing is too much trouble, they were even happy to supply us with a cup of flour. The hot tub is perfect, as are the games room, the barbeque and the secure back garden. There was more than enough crockery and glasses for a party of twelve, and the utility room with the dishwasher and washing machine came in very handy. There was ample parking for 6 cars which is always a bonus when a large party go away. The log burner is amazing and heats the whole house. The open plan living is great for families, as are the three downstairs bedrooms. We had a fantastic time and would definately go again. The only thing we didnt like is the fact that our bedroom was very warm as there isnt a window to speak of, just a roof light which hasn't got a black out blind so the daylight streams in very early in the morning, but this wouldn't be an issue in the winter time. The bedroom was upstairs on the right hand side opposite the upstairs seating area, there was also no dressing table in this room which would have been handy. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding immaculate. We loved this barn conversion and didnt want to leave. Credit to the owners, it is beautiful. Thankyou x

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ranby Hill Barn. It was immaculate throughout and very luxurious with plenty of space. There was lots to do, including a hot tub, table tennis and pool table so plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Local seaside resorts include Mablethorpe and Skegness, we went to Mablethorpe which was a short drive and a lovely quaint seaside town. The cake, tea, coffee and milk on arrival was a lovely touch and the owners made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this for a family get together and we would book again without hesitation.
October 2013
The cake and tea, coffee and milk were a really nice touch to welcome us to the cottage. The children absolutely loved it. Any issues were sorted out straight away by the owner, even to the point of rescuing us when we got a little lost in the local countryside. The cottage is incredibly well thought out with plenty of space and fun to occupy the children. There is lots to do locally all of which is well priced. The best part of our holiday was everyone's reaction when we first looked around. The only downside was the wifi which didn't really work but who needs it with so much to do.
