Why stay here ...
Our CL is located to the rear of the farmhouse in beautiful rural Lincolnshire and offers visitors the chance to experience the peace and quiet of the countryside and views out to open fields where you can relax and watch pedigree Lincoln Red cattle and prize winning pedigree Suffolk sheep graze. There is also a farmshop on site.
We exclusively invite our visitors to enjoy free of charge private coarse fishing in the Bain Valley river which is a short walk across the field. There is the opportunity to enjoy some great walks, one being the spa trail from Woodhall Spa to Horncastle which is 3 miles of flat surface along the old railway line which can be joined at Thornton or Martin.
Our local public house, The Ebrington Arms is 3 miles away offering home cooked food and locally brewed ale! Nearby Woodhall Spa and Horncastle also offer a great choice of restaurants.
