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.

    Not secluded.. swimming pool was cold keeping in mind it is outdoor and could not raise more heating temp for pool water. Pool tables Que stick had no tips and no chalk. Table tennis was better then pool table. Overall did not come out as we expected as we are a frequent travellers who hired these types of property twice the years.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are really sorry you thought the pool was too cold, it is always a difficult time of year to predict the temperature. Regarding the games room, we always have spare pool cues, tips etc. The secret is to ask, most items can be replaced immediately.

    We spent a great weekend away celebrating a 60th & 70th birthday and we had fun! The weather was kind and so we were able to use the pool and sit out in the sunshine. The kitchen had everything we would need and allowed us to prepare 2 special dinners for the birthday girls! All of the beds were comfortable and clean. The owner was very accommodating with any of our 'demands' which helped to make the weekend so special. The evenings were just right to light a fire and both of the fires available are fantastic. The cottage is a little old and tired and could do with a lick of paint and TLC, but this seems to add to the charm and atmosphere. If you are a larger party and wish to spend some valuable time together then this is the place for you.
