A last minute short stay, but well worth the visit. Beautiful charming cottage. High quality furnishings and bedding and immaculately clean. First visit to this part of the world and had a fantastic time with the family. Beach at Brancaster was a favourite for the children and recommended by the lovely owners. Would highly recommend.

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

We hired in the cottage for about 10 days for a work trip and on the last night family came to join us. We can honestly say Sue and John couldn't have been more thoughtful. The rooms were pretty, clean, relaxing. They made sure we were able to access Wi-fi, so important when on business (or increasingly holiday) The swimming pool was also a great offer! On our last day they gave us a list of lovely places to go on to in neighbouring Norfolk. We'd go back for work or pleasure, we loved it, our colleagues loved it, the kids loved it. Book in if you can.

Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week! We could not have been made more welcome - Sue and John were delightful hosts ensuring we had everything we needed. The cottage was spotlessly clean and cosy with a fresh appearance, the only thing that took a bit of getting used to was the telescopic showers in each bathroom. We soon learnt that it didn't pay to run the dishwasher/washing machine while trying to shower! This all added to the charm and was never a big problem. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Further Details:

Special Features and Leisure.

The area offers a wealth of opportunity for exploring wildlife and history and also for cycling and walking.

The Church of St. Mary the virgin dates from 1170 and has a wooden lead covered spire and is the earliest, tallest and well preserved one in the country ; plaques to the Delamores

can be found there, other local history focuses on Delamore house itself where in 1739, a Mr Maurice Delamore, the local magistrate, signed a warrant for the arrest of Richard Palmer (an alias for Dick Turpin).

Belton House, less than an hour by car, "The perfect English country-house estate" is the setting for Lady Catherine's house in the BBC version (Colin Firth!) of "Pride and Prejudice" has Lincolnshire's largest adventure playground.
