You’d be hard pressed to find as warm as welcome as you will at this 18th-century farmhouse. Set in a rural spot by a livery yard, it’s had great care poured into it by lovely Lut and Bruce, who’ve kept the original features but given it a fresh feel. Bedrooms have well-dressed beds and flowers (hop up to the attic for the single); bathrooms are spotless. Anglo-Belgian breakfasts are plentiful and eaten at one large table. There’s plenty to do: historic Lincoln nearby, bikes to borrow and walks from the door. Return to a stroll in the beautiful garden, an inviting sitting room and a tasty veggie meal – make sure to book ahead.
