  • After months planning a wedding, this has been the perfect relaxing honeymoon we were after.  The entire week has been wonderful...

    S & PMarch 2015
  • The Hayloft is simply beautiful, so peaceful & cosy.  We spent the days visiting Woodhall Spa and walking and the nights drinking wine by the log burner playing board games, not to mention soaking in that AMAZING bath!!!

    G & TFebruary 2015
  • The Bothy was such a lovely place to 'chill' and relax!  Thank you for making our stay a home from home, with all little extra touches added in!  The first night dinner was super and the crumble was amazing!!

    S & IFebruary 2015
  • Wow - what an amazing time we have had.  Stumbled across this gem on tripadvisor and you deserve all of the praise you get & more!

    S & CFebruary 2015
  • Wow, what a place!  Stephen and I needed a hideaway for a few nights, which would be like a home from home, and we found it with you.  What taste you have Sherry, it was like living in 'Country Living Magazine'!

    S & CJanuary 2015
  • We have made the Hayloft our annual treat to escape and chill.  This is our 4th visit now and each time we love it more.

    T, S, J & ADecember 2015
  • Practically Perfect in Every Way...  Thank you.

    C & CNovember 2014
  • From a bottle of wine to bath robes - we really could not have wanted for anything else!  The highlight might have been the bath - it was amazing!!!!  The Bothy really and truly exceeded our expectations and we could not have imagined how delightful a stay it could be!

    L & ENovember 2015
  • The Bothy is quiet, cosy and quirky.

    T & COctober 2015
  • Our third here at the Bothy (and 3 times in the Hayloft!); a wonderful few days of autumn sunshine. Walks on the Fens, the Wolds and along the beach. The garden here is a perfect sun trap, warm enough to enjoy breakfast each morning. I love the warmth and distinctive smell here - it will keep bringing us back to the perfect place for recovery.  Thank you, as always... PS The flowers were beautiful!

    C & BSeptember 2015
  • This was our 3rd time staying in the Bothy and it didn't disappoint.  It was the perfect weekend getaway, where you can just relax and unwind.  Sherry's first night meal is a must, a lovely meal and plenty to spare!  The hamper is always a real treat and the little touches make staying here such an individual stay.

    L, L & RAugust 2014
  • We always said we'd come back without children - and five years later we did!  It was as gorgeous as the first time.  The first night meal was such a treat and the apple crumble is to die for!  Thank you!

    G & JAugust 2014
  • Thanks for a wonderful break; the Stables are an absolute haven of peace and tranquility.  All of the 'extras' supplied were of a lovely quality and were much appreciated!

    D, S, B & JMay 2014
  • Wonderful, warm and cosy here in the Bothy.  We have had a lovely very relaxing time and will recommend to friends & family.  Superb evening meal on our first night, very yummy!  Peace & quiet with beautiful bird song. BLISS!

    A & MApril 2014
  • Wonderful from start to finish!  The perfect place to celebrate our engagement.

    L & NApril 2014
  • We can't recommend this place highly enough.  What a fantastic few days, so relaxing and peaceful.  We received a very warm welcome on our arrival, everything was perfect from the card and flowers on the table to the welcome trug, log fire, romantic lights in the bathroom, just an all round wonderful feeling to the whole place that made us feel relaxed and at home from the moment we walked through the door.

    S & JMarch 2014
  • What a wonderful relaxing few days we have had!  We felt at home as soon as we unlocked the door - all the little touches made this extra special.  The food was all yummy and the welcome card a lovely touch.

    H, N & EMarch 2014
  • The bathroom is amazing!  I would have quite happily spent the whole 3 days in there!

    C & BFebruary 2014
  • We have had such a lazy, cosy, warm, relaxing week!  We came away for a post-Christmas time-out and that's exactly what we got.  The Hayloft had everything we needed and more...it was the extra touches (the veggies, the flowers, the snug, the sauna, the welcome basket etc) that make the Hayloft stand out compared to other places we've stayed.

    S & CJanuary 2014
  • I don't think we have ever left a vacation feeling so mellow and relaxed.  Thank you for all the thoughtful things you had awaiting us on our arrival and for the beautiful country sanctuary you have created.

    D & RJanuary 2014
  • What a wonderful place to stay.  Time must move differently here because it feels like we've only just arrived and yet now it's time to leave.  We have loved the log burner, snuggling up in the cave bed and taking long soaks in the wonderful bath.  Our visit was extra special as we got engaged!  We couldn't think of a better setting.

    S & HDecember 2013
  • Sherry, thank you so much for making me feel so welcome and for all your help with my family tree research.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Bothy.  I couldn't have asked for a more delightful place to stay.

    LSeptember 2013
  • Our time at the Hayloft has been wonderful from start to finish.  We have not wanted for anything!  The hamper, vegetables etc are just fabulous - Sherry has thought of everything.  Thank you!!  It's been a lovely part of the country to visit - made even better by having our base here.

    C & RJune 2013
  • This is the most wonderful place we have ever stayed in.  You have gone to so much effort to make the Hayloft a warm and cosy retreat.

    A & SMay 2013
  • Our stay was absolutely perfect for our anniversary getaway!  I am now in love with the 'snug' and the gorgeous bath!  Thank you for all the kind gifts you gave us, and the wine was simply delicious!  ... I love the eco-friendly feel to the place!  Very Cool!

    A & JApril 2013
  • Came for our honeymoon and what a great place, everything wonderful including our first night meal.  Wow, what can I say about that bath!

  • Luxury and comfort, warmth and peacefulness, all rolled together and bound with consideration, and a lovely welcome.  Thank you, we've loved it.

    K & COctober 2012
  • It has to be said that the Manor House Stables are one of the best kept hidden gems in Lincolnshire.  Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, you feel like you have escaped to a place of relaxation and tranquility

    L & LSeptember 2012
  • After a day researching Romantic Weekend breaks, I found the perfect Retreat in the 'Manor House Hayloft'.  Colin and I have not stopped smiling since we arrived.  We have not been disappointed with anything, the accommodation is warm and welcoming just like the owners.  We are looking forward to returning...

    P & CApril 2012
  • Impressive!  Quite unique.  Just thank you so much for your kindness.  The place is unforgettable and you are special!

    D & CJanuary 2012
  • Loved it here!  I think this may be our favorite part of the UK - seems to offer everything!  And the Hayloft is wonderful - also seems to offer everything!  Thanks, Sherry, for making this a wonderful ending to our trip - I don't think anyone can 'top' your hospitality.  This visit to Lincolnshire has truly been an unexpected joy.

    P & WOctober 2011
  • We have had such a lovely, peaceful, quiet time - just what we needed!  The Bothy is everything we hoped it would be and more besides!  Your friendliness and attention to detail make this a jewel in Lincolnshire's crown!  Our perfect place away from home.  Thank you.
