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. One of the landmarks of the Fens is the octagonal lantern tower of St Botolph’s Church in Boston. Shop and good pub with food ½ mile in Billingborough, or village pub 300 yards.

    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.

    Excellent weekend at the farm for Dad's 80th birthday celebrations. Welcoming and helpful host and great facilities. Would recommend for anyone needing to get large groups together.

    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.

    A lovely house with something for everyone. Our ages ranged from 2 to 77 years and with 15 people altogether there was plenty of space to spend time together or seek peace and quiet! The pool and games room were an assets that were well used. Andy made us very welcome and told us all we needed to know to make the weekend go well. Would recommend the Plough for a meal, within walking distance and good food. Would not hesitate to go again. Jean P

    Very well equipped, the pantry was excellent, overall a comfortable house and the pool is a great touch. Owner very helpful and accommodating. Games room is a bit overrated and could do with an overhaul.

    The house was perfect for our needs. The dining room with its huge table and lovely crockery provided the ideal glamour for our Saturday evening gala dinner. Andy, the owner was very helpful and willingly provided us with additional hand towels and turned up the heating as the weather was cold.

    A large property ideal for 4 families to descend upon in February for a weekend. A bit chilly but good value for money with decent local pub in the village.

    We stayed at Abbotts farm as a group of 10 men celebrating a 50th birthday and found it to be a lovely, welcoming and comfortable house with ample sleeping room, a huge dining table suitable for 12, a good usable kitchen and two pleasant living rooms. As it was winter we cannot comment on the outdoor swimming pool but did explore the grounds to find the annexed games room (upstairs in a separate building by the car parking) and found it to be more suitable for children and lacking in the large snooker table offered at many similar properties. The area offers a nice pub just across the road, a small supermarket a short walk away and local countryside may well be very pleasant in the spring. We would be very happy to come back at the next birthday !

    We stayed here for new year, with all our family. Very well equipped in the kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils etc. Bedrooms spacious and clean. We couldn't find a broom or mop though to clean the floors etc. Overall a very good stay . Thank you x
