Description from owner


The Gables Retreat is a recently renovated 5 star farmhouse, which stands in large, mature, enclosed grounds, giving children the freedom to explore and play safely, and consequently the chance for parents to relax. Being blessed with a stunning location and a beautiful building, we have focused our attention on refurbishing the interior of the house to an equally high standard, sympathetically combining old with new, luxury with comfort, to provide a self-catering property that suits all needs, and appeals to all of our guests.

As well as high quality interior fixtures and fittings, we have equipped the house with everything you might need to make your holiday as relaxing and stress free as possible, and to save you having to pack for every eventuality! We have lots to do on site, and also have lots of information on things to do locally should you wish to venture out and explore. By offering many optional holiday extras, such as catering, beauty treatments etc, which we can advise on and help you organize, we feel we are not just offering a beautiful place to stay, but an all round holiday experience which ticks all the boxes!

Further details

We have friendly animals on site, usually a pony and 3 sheep, grazing in the paddock adjacent to the house. Additionally, just a short stroll down the farm lane are the RIvers Ancholme and Rase, which give the opportunity for coarse fishing, a picnic, or just a peaceful countryside walk.

Our gravel car parking area is huge, and offers plenty of space right next to the house, for easy transfer of luggage.

Mobile reception is good for most networks, and there is wireless internet access.

We welcome 2 well behaved dogs by prior arrangement at a cost of £20/dog.

We operate a strict no-smoking policy at the property.

Further details indoors

The Gables Retreat is a large, spacious farmhouse, with lofty ceilings, stripped floors and large windows with open views. It has 5 bedrooms, each individually designed to give a unique look. 1 en suite bedroom is located on the ground floor for guests preferring not to use the stairs. 4 of the bedrooms, including the ground floor bedroom, have optional twin/superking arrangements to give maximum flexibility, and 3 of them have en suite bath/shower rooms. 4 of the bedrooms are large enough to accommodate extra cots or z beds, and we can provide 1 cot, 1 travel cot and 1 high chair on request. The 4 bathrooms have high quality fittings, and all bed linen and towels are provided, as well as robes, slippers and toiletries.

On the ground floor there is a large open plan kitchen/dining room, a TV/play room, a separate sitting room, a cloak room and utility. The kitchen is excellently equipped with a range-style cooker, 2 fridges, a dishwasher, granite worktops and breakfast bar with 3 bar stools. The oak dining table can seat 12 comfortably and there is plenty of storage space for your holiday essentials. French doors lead off the dining area to give access to the patio, BBQ and hot tub area. The TV/play room is next to the kitchen, so children can relax whilst parents cook and keep an eye on them. The TV/play room has a 40" plasma, Sky TV, a DVD player, a WII console and a Hi Fi system. There are plenty of books, toys, DVDs and magazines for you to enjoy during your stay. There is also a solid fuel wood burner. Across the hall the elegant sitting room has enough seating for the whole group if you all want to be together, and an open fire for cosy nights in. Fire safety guards can be provided for both fires as well as stair gates if requested.

The utility room has a washing machine/tumble dryer, a freezer and a sink. Next to the utility there is also a "garden loo", perfect for muddy children or wet hot tub users!

Further details outdoors

Accessed directly from the dining area of the kitchen, is the patio with a gas BBQ, comfortable outdoor rattan furniture and 7 seat hydrotherapy hot tub, housed under a timber gazebo. This area has uninterrupted views to the west, a truly relaxing spot to watch the sun go down, or gaze at the huge Lincolnshire star-filled night skies.

There is an external toy barn, with a variety of outdoor toys and games and we also provide a croquet set for a game on the front lawn, as well as a badminton/volleyball set and other outdoor games. A climbing frame with 2 swings, slide and fort is located in the old orchard.

Reviewed 2 Dec 2012

I recently spent a wonderful weekend here with ten girl friends. We try to get away together at least once per year to catch up and relax. I can honestly say its the best rental we've ever had. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, the house was beautifully decorated and the hot tub is fabulous ! Great value for money and we would definitely return. If carlsberg made countryside retreats.....


Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

Great for walkers as lots of countryside to explore and if a car user this is a great central point for trips into Caister-Market Rasen-Cleethorpes-Skegness. The kids loved it too. :) The owners were very friendly. You could not find fault with anything. We will be returning. We have already recommended the property to our friends.
