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. Within easy driving distance are a wealth of interesting places, including the delightful old towns of Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford, full of beautiful stone buildings. On the edge of Stamford stands Burleigh House, one of England’s greatest Elizabethan houses. Nearby Spalding is an attractive, Dutch-influenced town and centre of the flower-bulb industry, where the Springfields show gardens and the annual flower festival in May are popular. Tattershall Castle (NT), Belton House and Coningsby, noted for its huge one-handed church clock, and the home of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

    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.

    I scored 9 overall because Abbotts Farm fitted the bill for a family celebration perfectly. The welcome we received and rapport we developed with the owner meant we were able relax completely and not be harassed by worries about the children who thought the farm was wonderful. For a weekend visit location and local amenities weren't an issue and the marks given may not reflect it's true values.

    I booked Abbott's Farm for 7 of my colleagues who were working in the area, and though they didn't go into detail, I was told "Abbott's Farm is awesome! We would all be more than happy to be here again".

    Perfect location for a get together with friends coming from Yorkshire and London. Great spaces - large kitchen, dining room and sitting room. Clean and nicely furnished. Not luxurious but very comfortable and well equipped. We will be back!

    Abbots Farm was a great location for our group of 11 ex colleagues getting together for a reunion. We were each able to have our own bed, in fact we could have bought 2 more people as there were 2 spare beds. We were there on a cold weekend in November but the house was very warm and we lit a lovely fire in the living room. Plenty of space for lounging and sitting around the tables. Lovely well equipped kitchen. Could have easily cooked an elaborate meal for a large number. We didn't as we had a very enjoyable meal at The Plough which is a few a few minutes walk away. The owner was very helpful and as he lives next door he was able to sort out a couple of minor issues quickly.

    We four families have holidayed together for over a decade now and really enjoyed our visit to Lincolnshire - such beautiful country, and in such lovely autumnal colour for our week away. We were 18 for part of our week and fitted fine into the lovely Abbott's Farm house. Beds were comfortable and each room nicely furnished. It is great having the additional sitting room and the games room which our teenagers enjoyed. Also helpful having such a big kitchen table as well as dining table for everything, from art work and homework to food servery. The house is well equipped with lots of books, DVD's, kitchen gadgets, good knives etc. Andy, the owner, was very helpful and available when needed.

    It was a good house for our family walking week though some of the equipment didn't work and the formal dining room proved much less attractive than the good-size kitchen-diner. The landlord was unobtrusively helpful, and the local pub was great.

    Nice place but in need of a bit of TLC. Bit too far away from the coast. Andy is a really lovely man and couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed our week there and the pool was very handy. But we wouldn't stay again as not in the right area for us which is a shame.
