Set in 40 acres and overlooking its own private fly fishing lake, this superb detached barn conversion provides an excellent holiday location for large groups and families. Maintaining many original features and set in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Eastlands Barn provides an excellent base from which to explore this area of Lincolnshire, and the owners conveniently live on-site. It is located between Louth, Horncastle and Market Rasen with its world-famous racecourse, excellent range of restaurants, pubs, shops and market. Horncastle is renowned for its antique shops and is only a short drive, as is the unspoilt Georgian town of Louth with two busy market days a week. A visit to the sandy beaches at Mablethorpe and Skegness is always worth a day out. The cathedral city of Lincoln, some 15 miles to the west , is rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and many places to eat and drink. Within 30 yards of the barn is a well-stocked trout lake for fly fishing and with 40 acres to walk around, there is plenty of opportunity to exercise yourself and your dogs. Stabling is available for your horse by arrangement with the owners. The Barn comes complete with a large open-plan living area with log burner making it ideal for family get-togethers and celebrations with a second sitting area complete with pool table adjacent. There is also an 8-seater hot tub available for guests use, with shower and changing facilities. Should you have a special occasion to celebrate, the owner can arrange for a local celebrity chef to prepare a special meal. All the bedrooms come with a tv and en-suite facilities. The village is approximately 3/4 mile and boasts a post office/shop and a pub providing excellent food.
8 of us came here to celebrate a joint birthday over a long weekend. The house was gorgeous, clean,spacious, beautiful surroundings and of course the amazing hot tub!
Not criticism but helpful to know if you're planning a visit- take extra towels with you. They do provide towels and bathrobes but no washing machine facility, so after a hot tub dip you have to use the same towel the next morning.
They provided us with a cake, loaf of bread and butter, which was great, but not many other pantry items (salt, pepper, bin liners, foil etc) so worth bringing these from home.
We had a brilliant time and would love to come back again!
