About Lynn Lawton
I am a part-time tutor of English for international students at a university. I have many friends abroad, and my son's family live in Colorado in the US. I live in Surrey in a small 18th century cottage. My interests are nature and the environment, history, house renovation, music, walking and gardening.
Lynn Lawton purchased this House in 1970
Why Lynn Lawton chose Bottesford
My parents bought this house in 1970 when my father's work (international educational bookseller) required him to move to the Midlands. My son spent all his school holidays there when he was growing up. After my mother died in 2008 I decided to renovate the property and retain some of the furniture, books and other items that had been used when my parents lived there.
What makes this House unique
This house has a calm and happy atmosphere and gets the sun in the kitchen in the morning and in the sitting room in the afternoon. When the weather is not so kind it is cosy and comfortable and there is a log fire too. There is also a proper dining room- the house is traditional and elegant but also spacious and unfussily furnished. The countryside is good for walks and bike rides and there are plenty of places to visit. Nottingham is about 40 minutes drive away.

Lovely cottage, lovely village...
We arrived after what I can only describe as an extremely stressful trip up from Frome, Somerset, second attempt, to open the front door to our lovely home for the night. There was everything we needed, from a 90 year old granddad to four legged friends we were all catered for. Although we had booked to stay for a wedding in Grantham we did have an opportunity to walk around the pretty village with our dogs. If the need ever arises we would certainly return and recommend anybody reading this to book as you will not be disappointed. Thank you

A return visit, cosy and comfortable
Enjoyed our short break. A great place to stay, lovely walks along the canal.
Beautiful traditional English village cottage in the splendor of the Vale of Belvoir
Very warm and cosy home from home, whilst still spacious and very well equipped for a family of 4 adults and 2 teens. The cottage was extremely welcoming and very clean upon arrival. We spent a fantastic Christmas week here enjoying both the cottage and village surroundings. Lots of footpaths in the village and, English country pubs and local conviences in nearby villages. Grantham is a short hop if you require something more or livelier. The owner was also very helpful with our enquiries. This cottage definitely deserves its gold star rating, we could not have wished for more.

We have stayed here quite a few times now and it never disappoints, everything you need in a beautiful location, thanks again, we will be back.

Lovely country cottage great for dogs walks.
Located in the Vale of Belvoir, overlooked by Belvoir Castle, 1 the Green is situated at the side of an ancient village green with a market cross. The village is just off the A1, the main north south road in England, near the village of Bottesford and the market town of Grantham. There is a pub and a tea-room in the village, and a 13th century church. It's a great place to explore rural England. We recommend walks along the local canal or cycling to villages with pubs and churches to visit. Don't forget to visit the house where Margaret Thatcher was born in Grantham! You can also make an appointment to visit the birthplace of an even more famous person, Sir Isaac Walton, at Woolsthorpe Manor.There are other historic places to visit such as Belvoir Castle and Belton House, which are nearby. You can also visit Lord Byron's home at Newstead Abbey. Nottingham, which has test matches and a Robin Hood centre, is about 40 minutes away by car. Grantham has a Saturday market, and not far away, the Burghley Horse Trials. There are ancient and beautiful cathedrals and towns a pleasant drive away, and details of everything can be found at the house, plus wireless internet for you to do some research. Local products include Melton Mowbray pork pies, fresh vegetables and the famous blue Stilton cheese, and there is a fish and chip shop and restaurants in Bottesford a short distance away. 1 the Green is especially popular with families. Both children and older people enjoy the peacefulness of the area and the calm and friendly atmosphere of the house. The house is often used by people who want to go away to meet up with relatives or celebrate an anniversary.
