History to the present day

The original house, seen best from the back, dates from about 1680 but was much enlarged in the 19th century to form the present imposing family home.

Food and Drinks

Full English breakfast included and served in the dining room, around a large mahogany table or at a small table in the bay window overlooking the garden. There is a collection of Lincolnshire history, natural history and guide books for guests' use in the dining room. Your breakfast will be cooked on the Aga in the farmhouse kitchen and wherever possible, home produced ingredients are used for breakfast e.g. poached fruit in season, eggs and tomatoes from garden when available. Other ingredients are locally sourced - sausages and bacon come from local farms with high animal welfare standards.

Grounds and gardens

The gardens, about an acre in extent and largely created by the Harrisons, are a riot of colour in the summer months. There is a grass tennis court and a large wildlife pond at the bottom of the lawn. The kitchen garden grows most of the fruit and vegetables used in the house. There are also the usual livestock associated with a traditional farm - horses, cats and dogs. 

At the bottom of the garden are the chickens - a variety of colours and breeds, some of them rare, and laying eggs ranging from china blue to chocolate brown and much enjoyed for breakfast.

The house is surrounded by parkland in which cows and calves graze all summer. Guests may be lucky enough to see calves being born between January and April, or newborn lambs during April. The farm, though contemporary and well up to date, is run with much thought given to the importance of conservation, wildlife and the natural environment. Two local Rare Breeds of livestock are also incorporated within the livestock rearing enterprises - Lincoln Red cattle and Lincoln Longwool sheep.
