  • We have had an amazing time staying here.  There isn't anything you haven't thought of and its such a beautiful place.  Such a fantastic area with so much history.  A perfect way to celebrate my birthday.   You are amazing hosts and go above and beyond.  Nothing is too much trouble.  We will definitively return!

  • It was our first time in this area and the info provided by Sherry has been invaluable.  We loved the welcome hamper...We found the Hayloft a peaceful haven away from our hectic 'real life' and we enjoyed the homely touches...

    Mandy & Roy, Hayloft, February 2016
  • What a perfect place to spend Valentine's weekend!  Romance, peace, quiet & pampering in abundance!  'Amazing' doesn't even cut it for this place...Evenings spent by the log fire, getting cosy in the cubby hole with the lights dimmed...letting the world drift away, soaking in that tub by candlelight; I defy anyone to come here for the weekend and not feel utterly at peace!  Every little details has been thought about and it's the little touches that make this place feel really luxurious!

    Amber & Ben, Bothy, February 2016
  • This was the perfect place for a bit of peace & quiet!  ... you have my dream bathroom!...

  • A full, fun, educational and tasty day today - great fun learning all the recipes, and seeing (tasting!) the results.  Laughed lots and ended up with tonnes of baked goods...yum!!. I'm sure I'll be back again.

    Stephen, Boozy Breads, December 2015
  • We've had such a wonderful relaxing week, as usual everything we could possibly have wanted has been provided & it really does feel like a home away from home!  Thank you for your hospitality, we can't wait to come back!

    Rachel, Bread Making for Beginners
  • If all self-catering holidays were like this, we'd never do anything else!  The luxury and thoughtfulness helped us make the most of a short break.  We've also converted to the delights of Lincolnshire

    Carol & Alan, Bothy
  • Lincolnshire is lovely - good food, friendly people and big skies.

    Adam, Maggie & Rory, Hayloft
  • Loved it here!  I think this may be our favourite 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.

    Peta & Wally (Canada), Hayloft

  • 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...

    Tracey, Shaun, Andrea & John, Hayloft
  • Eco and Friendly. "This self-catering converted stable takes its eco-credentials seriously, but there's no skimping on comfort... Sherry is evidently proud of her achievements on the sustainability front – she has a gold award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Solar panels and a wood pellet boiler provide hot water and heating, insulating materials include cotton and hemp, something called Pavatex made from sawmill by-products, and a floor-screeding concoction involving limecrete and recycled glass. Paints and woodstains are from a German company which uses citrus essential oils as solvent – so Sherry did the decorating in an orange-scented haze. Ensconced, it's as though we have arrived at a friend's weekend mountain cabin in upstate New York. Our "loft" has sloping ceilings, solid pine floor (sustainable source, natch), and is open plan from the hallway into a kitchen-dining room and sitting area, which also has the unusual addition of a box bed (like the traditional Welsh kind) built in at the far end, behind the sofa... The fridge is hidden in a freestanding cherrywood cabinet, an admirable piece of furniture even without the contents (Lincolnshire chipolatas, juice, cider, eggs, cheese). Sherry has left us veg from the garden, and sumptuous edibles in a wooden trug beside a jug of sunflowers on the table – her own-label apple wine, jams and chutney, homemade bread and eggs – and vegan champagne truffles ..."
