You are welcome to stretch your legs and roam at will around the grounds and paddock path with its many trees and views of Haconby’s medieval church and perch on one of the number of strategically placed garden seats should you deem anything worthy of a pause.

Separate entrance to Manor Stables is enjoyed over a small patio area with table and chairs where you can sit and enjoy fresh free range eggs for breakfast or sit and have a drink in the evening.

Once inside, the carefully chosen antiques effortlessly combine with a muted backdrop and sumptuous furnishings to create a luxury self-catering home stay you’ll be reluctant to leave. The accommodation is all on the ground floor with south facing views across open countryside. Coat hooks and shoe box are provided just inside the entrance door.

Off the kitchen is the living room with French doors.

Peace and Quiet in the English Countryside

  • 5 of 5

It was a short stay of 2 days in our travels down the east coast of England. The property was beautiful and inviting, providing a lovely respite after a day of driving. The dogs were no bother and Mini the Shetland welcomed us from the pasture. Lovely stay!

Comfortable, quiet and central for Lincolnshire and Leicestershire attractions

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts (Mandy and Tom) who were there if you wanted them but left you alone otherwise. The Cottage is a very comfortable place to come home to after an exhausting day exploring. It is well set up. Haconby is a very good village with a wonderful pub (thanks Derek) serving good food and ales in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. In summary, Manorstables and Haconby, are all you could ask for in self-catering accommodation, with surrounding attractions.

Peaceful stay in lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully styled cottage stay. We both had a lovely relaxing stay which was the whole reason for the weekend. The property was the perfect size for two people and would’ve been great for a longer stay, very comfortable and we both slept so well. We used the local pub for a meal out which was reasonably priced basic pub food. We finished the weekend with a trip to Grimsthorpe castle which we would recommend. Only down point was the constant rain. Would definitely visit again!

A pretty cottage in the Lincolnshire Fens

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay in Mandy and Tom's beautiful cottage in Haconby.

The cottage was very spacious, comfortable, tastefully furnished, well equipped and located in a tranquil setting near the church. The cottage was well located for visiting the villages, towns and places of interest in the surrounding area.

The Manor Stables is a Grade II Listed Building that has been recently converted into a private luxury holiday cottage. The former stables situated in Lincolnshire, in the village of Haconby just north of Bourne are conveniently located to provide an excellent base to relax and explore all that this part of Lincolnshire and nearby Rutland has to offer.

Whatever your interest there is plenty to see and do. Ideally situated for visiting Burghley House, also the home of Burghley Horse Trials and the historic town of Stamford named “The best place to live in Britain” by the Sunday Times.

Known as Bomber County, Lincolnshire is also home to the fantastic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby. If you are lucky you may well see the Spitfire, Lancaster or Hurricane pass overhead, using Haconby church spire as a navigation point, on their flight back to base.
