About the property

Lincolnshire country cottages with patio gardens and panoramic views

Old Barn Cottages are located just outside Great Sturton – a small hamlet near Horncastle on the edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds. Created through the sympathetic conversion of a red-brick Georgian barn, these luxury cottages are an ideal “away from it all” escape to a quiet corner of rural England.

Each cottage has its own colourful patio garden with panoramic views of rolling meadows, woodland and a private lake. Within the grounds are a croquet lawn, delightful picnic and barbecue areas and a nature trail through private woods. Access to first-class golf and riding facilities is available nearby at modest fees.

A variety of period features give individual charm and character to each cottage. Top quality linen and towels are provided free of charge. All have adjustable central heating, colour TV sets, video recorders and radio clocks in the bedrooms. A separate utility room is equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities. The country-style dining kitchens offer a warmly inviting atmosphere. Equipped to a high standard, they include such useful “extras” as microwaves and filter coffee machines.

Old Barn Cottages offer an ideal base from which to visit unspoiled countryside, picturesque villages and the wide, safe, sandy beaches of the Lincolnshire coast. Other nearby attractions include Lincoln’s magnificent cathedral and castle, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at Coningsby, numerous stately homes, country parks and wild-life sanctuaries.

The proprietors, Dan and Hiroko Dobson, extend a warm welcome to all visitors to Old Barn Cottages and are always happy to offer on-the-spot advice or information whenever needed. Children of all ages are very welcome and such useful items as cots, high chairs and baby baths are available on request. Well-behaved pets are also accepted.
