What a wonderful find. Beautiful, safe, quiet location but with Lincolnshire Activities and the Coast near to hand. The property is furnished and equipt to a very high modern standard and facilities are almost beyond belief. A great experience for adults and children alike...all are provided for with TVs, DVDs, toys, books, puzzles, outside play equipment, hot-tub, BBQ and even overlooking a paddock with friendly family ponies and sheep. Diane and Bill were so welcoming and the hamper awaiting our arrival was superb. A perfect venue for our annual family (10) holiday. It will be almost impossible to surpass.

“Cocooned in Luxury”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As my wife is in a wheelchair, we had some specific requirements. Even before we arrived, Diane and Bill were genuinely keen to understand our needs and went to great lengths to make our stay as comfortable as possible, to the point of specially buying a ramp for us.

The warmth of the welcome continued as we were greeted with a basket of essentials (milk, bread, eggs, tea, coffee and even wine) and a spotlessly clean luxurious big house, with wonderful grounds.
It is a beautiful, well-furnished, and tastefully decorated property.

Throughout the week, Diane and Bill were always available for help, without being intrusive at all. Their personal touch coupled with the family history of the house made us feel more like invited guests than customers.
Being able to stroke and feed the horses and sheep brought its own therapy for some members of our group.

We have already recommended the place to our friends.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A fabulous relaxing week.

We found Diane and Bill to be genuinely friendly and helpful. However they are not intrusive at all despite living nearby.

Diane's fond memories of time spent at The Gables Retreat rubbed off on us from the moment we emailed her before even booking!.

We would not hesitate to recommend The Gables Retreat. On walking through the door we were home. Fabulous! Comfortable! Chic! Homely! Loved it!

“Unforgettable Weekend”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed here with my partner and 8 other friends for a surprise 30th birthday weekend and it was absolutely perfect!! It was everything we expected and more. Diane had thought of everything, lovely hamper filled with goodies on arrival, coffee, tea and milk, map of the area, list of places near by, pubs and restaurants we could eat at.
The house was very, very clean and not one thing to fault. The decoration in the house was perfect and fitted very well to surroundings...we all would love to have it back at home! The hot tub was one of the main reasons we booked but even without this we would come again. The animals in the garden were an added bonus where we got to feed and stroke them.
I can't recommend this place enough, 100% satisfaction from all of us. It was a wonderful and unforgettable stay. It's definitely a place we will be returning to again soon.

“Look no further!”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

7 of us stayed at The Gables Retreat from the 23rd till the 26th of April and I was sad to go! This getaway house has everything you could ever need. The facilities are of an extremely high standard and the hosts are absolutely wonderful! There was absolutely no need to leave nor did we want to! I will definitely be coming back!

“Fantastic, didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stayed here for a long weekend at the end of April. There was 7 of us in total and every single one of us just loved every moment!

The property was well looked after, clean and had everything you could possibly need!
There was even a welcome basket on arrival with a few bits, bread, jam, wine, eggs, bacon, cake etc. Which was a lovely touch!
All the bedrooms also included robes and slippers.
The hot tub was amazing and was cleaned/treated every morning.
There was also a small climbing frame, slide and swing set for families
The only thing I'd say may be a problem is if you don't drive as it is completely isolated.
I really want to return again soon xx
