About Sue Thompson

We love the countryside and helping others to enjoy it as much as we do. We purchased the property in 1987 and have modernised it throughout without losing the Victorian/Edwardian charm. Only 8 miles from Lincoln city gives a great base for shopping, sightseeing or family get together. We aim to make your stay perfect. We live close, but not too close at hand and we are available to assist in any way we can.

Lovely House perfect for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is well equipped for 10 people . Added charm was the log burner and the massive farmhouse kitchen . Pool table which entertained the adults and extensive gardens for the children to run around in . All bed linen and towels were included and the bedrooms are large and bright .

Rather a mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

The house is huge & warm & in a lovely quiet area, we saw lots of hares & an owl & the stars were very bright as no light pollution. But. It was pretty grubby thoughout with bits of food stuck to the bin, old sweet wrappers in the log basket attracting ants & a lot of the crockery needed washing before use. It has lots of some things such as tea plates but is lacking in basics - lamps with no bulbs, no bins or toilet brushes in two of the loos, no information on recycling, no bread knife. We asked for a better tin opener & were told no one uses them anymore! The advertised welcoming tea & coffee was one single sachet of each & the milk wasn’t there at all. Good job we always come prepared. The local information is years out of date. Some of the sofas are ripped. We also struggled with the tv & wi-fi, we weren’t too bothered by this but it might be a nuisance for some people. It’s a great house in so many ways but feels sadly neglected, it would only take about £40 at Wilkos to kit it out to a standard that you’d expect in a holiday cottage. And a damn good clean - I used to manage cleaners, if any of my cleaners had left a place in that state they’d have got a right rocket. Basically, we had a great time & enjoyed the space, the log fire & the area but it felt more like a youth hostel than a relatively pricey country cottage. Maybe the owners have lost interest in renting it out or aren’t quite in touch with the standards that people expect these days. Would be absolutely fantastic for a large group with lots of kids so don’t be put off but do go prepared.

Large house great for family get togethers

  • 5 of 5

Lovely character home, plenty of room and very comfortable beds in an idyllic rural area. We found very good restaurants and takeaways in nearby Wragby and Welton, good range of independent shops in Horncastle, great weekend with family would recommend.

Owner very helpful and quick responses when contacted thank you

Great space with plenty of room for all the family. Could be cleaner and could have more kit.

  • 3 of 5

It's a big house and the pool table was good fun. It would have been good to have a few more bits in the kitchen (cafetière).

Owner's Response: We say to all our guests "if there is anything additional you need please contact us and we do our best to supply it". We also say "if there is anything not right ot your liking, please contact us so we can make it right"...we are unable to rectify, if guests do not let us know until after they leave! That said we will contact the guest direct re the clean issue, as contract cleaning company is engaged for change overs.
