The Manor House Stables
About the home
The Bothy at the Manor House Stables is warm and welcoming and provides a cosy retreat for 2 or 3 people. The Grade II Listed stables were restored in 2008 using eco-friendly materials and traditional methods. Natural insulation and wood burning stoves means that they are lovely and warm even on the coldest winter's night. It is a perfect hideaway for two but there is an additional sleeping space for a child (or small adult) in an unusal box bed in the living area. Other unique features include a wooden bath made for two. The well-equipped kitchen opens out directly onto a small private garden with wooden furniture, a garden swing and barbeque set.
Care has been taken to make this accommodation suitable for those with limited mobility - all the accommodation is at one level and there are grab bars in the bathroom.
The Manor House Stables is ideally located in the heart of rural LIncolnshire within driving distance of the Wolds, Coast and Fens. The historic city of LIncoln is only 20 minutes drive away and the lovely Edwardian town of Woodhall Spa is just 4 miles away. The Stables is situated at the edge of a small village with both a pub and shop within 5 minutes walking distance. The nearest restaurant is less than a mile away.
We aim to provide a special stay for our guests - from fresh flowers, a welcome hamper, vegetables from the garden, freshly-baked bread, sausages, wine, chocolates, luxury toiletries and much more. We have been awarded the Gold Award by Enjoy England and Gold in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. In the 2010 East Midlands Awards we were delighted to receive Bronze in Sustainable Tourism and Silver in the best in Self Catering Category. We are also winners of the Tastes of LIncolnshire Self catering Awards 2010.

Further details indoors:
The main living area is situated in the old part of the Stables which may have at one time served as a ‘bothy’ or living and eating area for the stable boys and shepherds who worked the local farmland. This beamed room is warm and cosy with a soft leather sofa and chair and a pine dining table. The floors are of brick covered with cotton rugs and the warmly insulated walls are painted with lime-wash. There are a good selection of books and games as well as a TV, DVD and record player. Tucked under the staircase is an unusual 'box bed' providing a cosy 'snug' or a sleeping space for 1.
The small but perfectly hand-crafted kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with freezing compartment, kettle and toaster and a range of quality kitchenware. An unusual but beautifully enamelled ‘Everhot’ traditional cooking range/ heat store (electric) keeps this area lovely and warm. A door leads from here into the small private garden - help yourself to vegetables and herbs in the pots and troughs..
The double bedroom sleeps 2 in a cast iron Sleigh bed with a luxury mattress made of organic Wesh wool, covered in cotton sheets and luxury bedspreads.
The bathroom is lovely but its main feature is an unusual wooden soaking tub, perfect for two. LIght the candles and enjoy!

The Heart of England / Peak District / Lincolnshire region
Lincolnshire -a wealth of history in the wonderful countryside.
The county as a whole is renowned for good walks, cycling, bird watching, golf, angling and the big outdoors. The gently rolling countryside is ideal for walking, cycling or bird watching and the area is well known for its angling, golf courses and big skies. Lincolnshire played an important part in the 2nd World War and there are many memorials and museums in the locality. Antique hunting, county shows, airshows and trips to the coast are all ideas for an interesting visit.
The Woodhall Spa area
The Edwardian town of Woodhall Spa with its shops, tearooms, historic cinema and famous golf course is only a few miles away, and the historic city of Lincoln with its cathedral, castle, museums, shops and restaurants is only 20 minutes away. The Lincolnshire coast is also within easy reach (about 1 hour).
