About Jeanette Folwell

We are Rob and Jeanette Folwell, a husband and wife team who moved to the glorious Lincolnshire Wolds in 2007. Rob a retired Inspector from Leicestershire Police wanted to create a self catering holiday business to enable us to work together, so we purchased and created Greetham Retreat.

We truly enjoy our jobs and consider it a pleasure to meet the wonderful people who choose to stay with us here at Greetham Retreat. The area is so friendly and welcoming, something we noticed immediately and our guests often comment on.

Jeanette has worked within customer service since leaving school and we try to make your whole experience of Greetham Retreat memorable for all the right reasons. We visit lots of attractions and pubs, coffee shops and restaurants so we can confidently recommend them based on our experiences, the best way we think. We also provide lots of visitor attraction leaflets and keep this as up to date as possible. A large Ordnance Survey map covers one wall of our information room and a large folder of walks and cycling routes are available to guests too. These are so important to help you find all the great places on offer here in friendly and uncrowded Lincolnshire.

Jeanette Folwell purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Jeanette Folwell chose Horncastle

We discovered this unloved and derelict crew yard and lovingly restored and converted it into a complex of five luxurious self catering cottages with the accommodation being set in over 4 acres of natural grounds. Sitting a 100 meters above sea level and in the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB (designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

Our vision was to create a rural haven for our guests to enjoy with natural features such as wildlife ponds, wildflower meadows. We also planted over 650 deciduous trees in 2008 to create a large woodland and glades. Plenty of seating is dotted around the grounds to enable you to rest and drink in the far reaching views over the Lincolnshire Wolds, including a large picnic table and benches made from some fallen trees and old roof timbers from the barn.

We are located centrally between the City of Lincoln and everything this vibrant city has to offer and the beautiful coastline with it's famous resort of Skegness and it's much quieter sandy beaches, all of which are dog friendly.

We live on site but 100 meters away from the holiday cottages which was also important. Close enough to be available for helpful advice and ideas but far enough away to allow you the uninterrupted freedom and relaxation you may be looking for.

What makes this cottage unique

The views from Greetham Retreat are truly stunning as you can see for miles over the Lincolnshire Wolds with it's undulating hillsides and ever changing arable fields. A large network of public footpaths, bridlepaths and quiet country lanes make this area a fabulous place to enjoy walking, cycling and driving

Guestbook comments from the manager

Rob and Jeanette greeted us warmly and provided milk, fruit juice and plum loaf - lovely! Oh and a bottle of wine as well, which was really nice of them.

We stayed in Wendy's Wing for three nights.The accommodation is exceptionally clean and very well equipped, we were very warm and cosy even though the evenings were quite chilly. Rob and Jeanette were always on hand for some local information regarding where to eat and what to do. When it was time for us to leave Rob kindly showed us all of the accommodation at Greetham Retreat which is of the same lovely standard. We will be spoilt for choice when we go to stay there again.

We left a jacket hanging up when we departed but Jeanette posted it to us without delay and it arrived within a few days. We had a wonderful time at Greetham Retreat and will definitely return again. It was a genuine pleasure to meet Rob and Jeanette and to stay at their beautiful property.

First time all away together, had a wonderful greeting.

Doggy treats & a bottle of wine!!

Cottage welcoming and nothing overlooked. Very comfortable.

We hit the beaches & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The George & Dragon was a hit for us all.

Thanks for a great 5 days.

Pam, Dave & Rooney .

We always try to recommend suitable places of interest nearby that we hope that you would enjoy. We also try to tailor these recommendations to your own interests and preferences. This was especially important as your lovey dog Rooney accompanied you for your stay. There are so many quality dog friendly eateries and attractions nearby, that makes Greetham Retreat and our holiday cottages a great place to stay with your pooch!! Can we also say a big thank you for leaving your cottage so clean and tidy when you left, this was really appreciated. Hope to see you again sometime in the future. Thanks again.

My husband and I and our dog Harry, had a wonderful week at Greetham Retreat. Our cottage accommodation was delightful and very warm on the cold autumn evenings, though we did manage to sit out in the lovey grounds on a couple of occasions during the afternoon sunshine. The owners have a very hands-on approach, and make everyone feel very welcome - nothing is ever too much trouble. The location of Greetham Retreat is excellent for touring the Wolds and the Lincolnshire coast line. There are some wonderful restaurants in the locality, and numerous coffee shops to be found in Louth and Horncastle. A must to visit is the FAT SEAGULL in Sandylands - their Ploughman's lunch is unmatched! If you are looking for a quite week away in wonderful surroundings with comfortable cottage accommodation, then you will not do better then a visit to Greetham Retreat. I can most certainly say that I would go back for another visit, but we liked it so much, we bought a house nearby instead.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here in Wendy's Wing at Greetham Retreat. Welcome to the neighbourhood as the Lincolnshire Wolds is a real undiscovered gem and lovely place to visit, stay or even live. We are so pleased that you are moving to the area and have bought your new home for you both and the lovely Harry. Being located centrally in the county of Lincolnshire makes its perfect for visiting both the coast with its lovely dog friendly beaches and the fantastic historic city of Lincoln with its magnificent castle and cathedral. We also agree and recommend to many guests the Fat Seagul bistro which is a great place to eat when visiting the coast. Please stay in touch as it would be lovely to see how you are getting along. .
