Retaining many original features, this former stable is in a rural setting, yet is only 15 miles from the city of Lincoln.

This beautifully converted, single-storey, former stable stands detached in the grounds of the owner’s home in the rural hamlet of Stragglethorpe. The property has retained many original features, and is just 8 miles from Newark and 12 miles from Grantham. The small village church is believed to be one of only four unaltered Saxon churches in the country. This is an ideal touring base with a visit to Lincoln and its imposing cathedral - used for the filming of The Da Vinci Code - just 15 miles away. Also within an easy drive are Belvoir Castle, Belton House, Southwell Minster and RAF Cranwell. The showground at Newark is host to many antique fairs and other events. Shop 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

Beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, kitchen area and French doors, all with tiled floor. Utility. Two double bedrooms, one with French doors, and twin bedroom with French doors; each with en-suite shower room and toilet or bathroom and toilet.

    An absolutely beautiful cottage, very well converted with lovely original features. Had everything we could possibly need (except wifi) and was ideal for taking 2 dogs.

    Excellent accommodation and for us walking the Viking Way an excellent location. The property would benefit from having WiFi and a bigger TV screen.

    Lovely accommodation, very comfortable. Dishwasher didn't work but a new one was fitted the night before we left. Owners were very apologetic but a bottle of wine wouldn't have gone a miss. Would stay there again

    It was just what we needed quiet and very very cosy.

    Stables were lovely, but one sofa was very hard so we found it difficult to relax in the evenings. We also had problems adjusting the heating, but we should have asked the owners for help, we just didn't want intrusion on our hols. Lastly, the information folder needed updating.
