Location description from owner

The Lincolnshire region

Villa Barns is a stunning Barn Conversion located in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Lincolnshire has 8 county neighbors – Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, East Riding, South Yorkshire, Leicestershire and North Hamptonshire.

Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire share the shortest county boarder in the whole UK, it’s only 19m long – that shorter then a swimming pools length. Lincolnshire has 50miles of coastline fun!

Lincolnshire people are called ‘yellowbellies’ as a nick name but nobody really knows why. Lincolnshire produces nearly 20% of all the food eaten in the UK – the county has wonderful fertile growing soil, so when you eat your dinner, lunch or tea there’s a chance it’s been produced in Lincolnshire.

North East Lincolnshire – around Cleethorpes – is known as the ‘Bird Airport’ of the East Coast (a bit like Heathrow for humans) due to the amount of birds it attracts.

Lincolnshire holds the The World Egg Throwing Competition, it takes place each June in Swaton, Lincolnshire. Contestants have to construct a gravity-powered egg-hurling device to launch an egg to a waiting team member. Eggs can travel at speeds of up to 120 mph and distances to be achieved start at 30 meters – this can be extended up to 150 in this knock out competition! As teams construct their machines they will discover that the further the throw, the faster the egg.

Interesting historical facts

Lincoln is possible most well known for its Cathedral – the Cathedral used to be one of the tallest building in the UK but in 1549 the spire, which sat ontop of the existing tower, blew off and was never replaced -•The Lincoln Imp – High on the pillar of the Angel Choir in Lincoln Cathedral is the stone carving of the Lincoln Imp. The 12-inch high creature is said to have wreaked havoc over years within the magnificent cathedral, until it was turned into stone by an angel. Look at www.icons.org.uk Can you find him?

Lincoln Castle is home to one of the most important historical documents in the UK – the Magna Carta. The Magna Carta was the very first document to set out the Law, as we know it today.

Have you ever lost anything ? King John lost the Crown Jewels in The Wash in 1216

Market Rasen

Activities include: The Blacksmiths Arms Pub located in the village, excellent home cooked food between £7 - £15 for a meal. The market Town of Caistor has an excellent Equestrian Centre, Outdoor Adventure and Quadbike Centre and Fishing, along with food emporiums and convenience stores. The market Town of Louth, vast sandy beaches, Seal Sanctuaries, Bird and Wildlife Centres, Pleasure Island Theme Park and Grimsby's Fishing Heritage Centre are all 10 miles away. Indoor play areas, Medieval Lincoln and many other activities are under 20 miles away.

“Nice quiet relaxing holiday location”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2011

Very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Barns, the location was great for exploring the local area. Nice walks exploring very near by. the hosts were very welcoming and the facilities were of a high standard. Wifi helped the kids stay in touch with their friends. All in all a great week

“Contemporary accommodation in a quiet country setting”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2011

A beautiful barn conversion, well-appointed and very spacious bedrooms. Open plan living accommdation is on the small side in comparison to the space upstairs but still plenty of room for every holiday need. Safe playing for children in the fenced-off garden area. Nigel and Amy very friendly and approachable hosts who make you feel very welcome. Lovely pub in the village only a short walk from Villa barns which serves fabulous food at reasonable prices.

“Clean, compact, tasteful decor and welcoming hosts in quiet rural village.”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2011

We had a wonderful week at Villa Barns in this quiet rural location. The property was very tastefully decorated to a very good standard. All linen and towels were of a good quality. As a new property there were one or two items which may have proved useful to us which were not there but this has since been rectified. We appreciated the welcome pack and the warm welcome by the hosts who live opposite. Plenty to do and see in the area from the countryside to the beaches. The only downside which we soon got used to was that we were surprised at the size of the living room/kitchen area as from the photograph we thought that the whole property was Villa Barns whereas in fact there is an office and store room closed off for the use of the host family. This may appear a bit misleading when you book. However the price reflects this as it was so reasonable for the time of year that we went and played a large part in our choice. We felt that we had got more than our money's worth. We had a wonderful stay enjoying the small garden area for sitting out in and the balcony from the second bedroom is a lovely touch and the wireless internet much appreciated. We would certainly recommend others to stay here.

“Wonderful Cottage in a peaceful but not remote area”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2011

Beautiful Barn conversion, very modern. Large spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Compact but perfectly pleasant Living/ Dining / Kitchen area. Lovely sunny aspect to the whole house. Plenty mod cons too... dishwasher, washing machine etc. No mobile phone signal inside house but with a teenager that was quite pleasant. Found the closest town for decent shopping was Grimsby. Neighbouring Cleethorpes was a great place for the beach and all the things the kids love ! Good family restaurant at the Pear Tree Cleethorpes/ Grimsby area. Caister was a nice little market town for the essentials ( fantastic Fish and Chips).
