Blackthorn Cottage

1560496_242442412604222_1435705948_nThis idyllic Lincolnshire country cottage sits next to the Weller’s farmhouse, in the centre of a working farm – a cosy cottage, recently refurbished and equipped with all modern comforts. It’s child- and pet-friendly, and well-mannered pets come free of charge! It has its own secure garden providing the perfect getaway in the peace and tranquility of beautiful Lincolnshire.

You’ll be welcomed by our horses (and miniature!), chickens, sheep, lambs and rare breed pigs :-)

Upstairs is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both with plenty of wardrobe space and lovely views across the fields.

Fresh towels and linens are provided, and beds made up prior to arrival.

The garden has garden furniture for breakfast in the sunshine and there are beautiful walks in the surrounding area. The two closest villages each offer an excellent pub – The Green Man at Norton Disney (child-friendly), and The Five Bells at Bassingham.
