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.

    This was the perfect house and location for our two family holiday of 4 generations! The weather did help, as it was glorious! The house is spacious, insanely well equipped ( enough pots, pans and plates for every occasion and glasses for any beverage!) comfortable and was very clean. Plenty of bathrooms too. The garden was spacious and a bit of a wilderness which is great for kids and dogs and great for exploring but a bit ramshackle and - dog owners please note - the boundary fences are not secure. The pool great fun and big enough for everyone to enjoy. We swam the equivalent of the English Channel in lengths during our stay!! Plenty of garden furniture allowed us to eat outside from the BBQ every day, although the dining room was also big enough for our party of 16 to eat around the table comfortably too. A great house, lovely owner who was considerate, extremely helpful and friendly without being intrusive. We will be back!

    Abbots Farm was the perfect property for our large family Christmas gathering. The large kitchen is really well equipped with everything you need to cater for a large party. It was also amazing to all be able to sit comfortably around the dining room table in a very impressive room. The open plan games room is located in a separate building adjacent to the property and proved a popular place to go for those of us that wanted to play table tennis and pool. The owners were very welcoming and it was really helpful having a slightly later check out time on our departure date. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful weekend and we would definitely recommend this place to others. We hope to return again in the future.

    We really enjoyed our stay. Andy was very welcoming and did his utmost to ensure all the guests were warm, particularly in view of the challenges with the boiler. Andy could have explained the password for the internet, the games room, the location of kindling and firelighting equipment. This would have avoided the need to chase for the information. However, this did not detract from our enjoyment of the facilities. We were made to feel very welcome. When the snow fell on the Sunday Andy offered us the accommodation for an extra night.

    Fantastic, well equipped, huge house in walking distance to two lovely pubs (including Sunday lunch). Short of a seat in the front room (bring a beanbag??) but ample space for all around the table- perfect! Lovely, comfy weekend had by all; great for catching up with old friends.
