Description

Celebrate a special occasion at this farmhouse, with its own swimming pool, library, games room and large garden.

Set on the owners’ non-working farm in Horbling village, this detached farmhouse, with its own swimming pool, lies in the heart of the Fens, an ideal touring base for visiting the area’s wealth of historic attractions. Providing comfortable holiday accommodation for families, it retains many original features, including exposed woodwork, an ornate cornice in the dining room and a traditional farmhouse-style kitchen. There is a second sitting room, well-stocked library and video and DVD collection (including latest releases). Outside is a large, private, rear lawned garden with apple, pear, plum trees and gooseberries which guests are welcome to pick in season, and a large patio with garden furniture and barbecue. The fenlands make ideal walking and cycling country, an excellent way to view the landscape with its rich farmlands, huge skies and wonderful sunsets; walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep; facilities can be found nearby for golf, fishing or horse riding.

    We were a party of 16 having a family gathering for my parents diamond wedding. The farmhouse was large plenty of areas to relax bedrooms were comfortable with towels well stocked with pots pans cutlery serving dishes. Plenty of cupboards to put food in, 2 fridge/freezers 2 ovens. The younger of the party used the swimming pool which was OK. To the delight to some there was sky sports!!! We took a couple of dogs & they loved the large garden to run around in. Also we used the games room which has pool, table football & table tennis which all participated in a table tennis tournament which was great fun. A brilliant weekend had by all.... Previous post have said it's dated & needs a bit of tlc but at the end of the day it's a old farmhouse and it's got character. The village called Billingborough about a mile down the road has a coop fish & chip shop fantastic antique shop book store playground.

    Spacious and cosy, this cottage was ideal for our family of 16 to get together. Room sizes were ideal for all to be together comfortably. Outdoor gardens great for excepted children and lots of space and furniture for the adults to rest and chat. Games room has extra entertainment for bad weather activities. Any small problems immediately dealt with by owners. A great place and lots of places to visit for a range of ages.

    We had such a fantastic stay at Abbotts Farm. The owners were really welcoming and on hand should we need help with anything (thanks again for your help with the BBQ!). The garden is absolutely beautiful and luckily the weather was amazing so we enjoyed it as much as we could. The pool is huge and I'm looking forward to coming back again with my family as I know they'll love it. We were a hen party of 16 and stayed for 3 nights over the weekend. Apart from a day trip to Nottingham for watersports, we spent the entire time in the house and couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank-you again!

    Ideal house for a large party or family. We had a great time and the well equipped games room helped entertain when the weather was poor. Some of the showers weren't working well so we had to use the 2 that were but as a family this was fine for us. The large dining room was a good feature for celebration meals as well as other meals.
