This property is in a unique setting in the grounds of Foxdale which is a 260 acre farm. The farm is the home of Oasby Horse Trials which is in March and Occtober each year. You can bring your pets, even horses if you wish. There is grazing and stabling if required. The village of Oasby is a pretty mainly stone location with the pub The Houblon Inn at its heart - a short walk from the cottage. The cottage certainly has the "wow" factor with a lovely duck egg blue colour scheme throughout. Everyone who stays has a delightful time

Why Mrs Gill Wild chose Grantham
We always loved Oasby when we lived two miles away when we first got married and were determined to end up living here.
What makes this Cottage unique
The pub is a vital part of the village - we actually own the property which is let to John Blenkiron who was trained by Marco Pierre White so the food is exceptional. The farm offers lovely walks if you want to bring your dogs and horses are also welcome. We can provide lovely rides around the area with stop off pubs where you could stable horses over your lunch hour.

Excellent accommodation, friendly and helpful owners, perfect weather.
Barn was spacious, light and airy. Well equipped both inside and out. Perfect accommodation having three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a large sociable living area. Lots to do in the area. Would happily recommend and revisit.
Thank you for your lovely review. So pleased you had a great holiday. Hope to see you all again sometime. Gill
Comfortable and quiet cottage in the country.
Honeysuckle cottage was perfect for our quiet weekend with friends. Very clean and comfortable, with extra little touches such as wine and chocolates. Lovely walks in the surrounding countryside and good pubs and restaurant not far away.
Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you again in the future.
Large, roomy, comfortable, warm (we needed the heat!) quiet. friendly/helpful host/hostess.
Delightful location. Well equipped. Not fully disabled-friendly i.e. the walk-in free-standing shower had a high step into it and there were no grab handles. Someone in a wheelchair would find difficulty in accessing this shower. Needs new kitchen mixer tap as so small water can barely flow into washing-up bowl so we used the tiny sink between the main sink and the draining board. A dish drainer would be useful. Otherwise property was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
Owners resolved a security issue with patio doors unbelievably speedily.
Thanks for your lovely review. So pleased you had another happy holiday with us. Hope to see you all again. Gill
