A superbly appointed venue in beautiful, natural surroundings. Private but with easy access to the main house if any assistance at any time was needed. Situated within easy reach of amenities, lovely country walks on the doorstep. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating - I will visit again!
Burghley and Belton Houses, old Stamford village and Lincoln
Are part of Honeysuckle's treasure trove and competed for our attention,
We ventured out towards the Wolds in search of holiday adventure
We found plenty to inspire us and home spun breweries uncensored!
The osprey chicks were in our sights at Rutland water's lakeside shore
We heard the geese wings beat their rhythm and their gaggling furore,
We munched our way through blackberries, juicy bodied on the briar
And wedded our way round RSPB marquees in sunny Lincolnshire!
We dined we bowled, we mooched and strolled round each part of that county
When we got lost in search of nosh, we found the tribe at Oasby friendly,
A female form lashed round a traffic cone nearly put us off our stride,
But the locals calmed our first night nerves, coming quickly to our side!
"Hello" said we, getting set to flee, lest large hounds be set upon us,
We've just arrived from Gill and Nigel's drive and we're heading for the village,
"Fear not" they said, sensing our dread, "it's an equestrian challenge see?"
We stand her here to see if horses rear, it's all quite harmless really!
And so it proved, that dummy never moved (and disappeared next day)
We found her twin, also lashed in, round a cone amongst the hedgerows,
"Aha" said we, for we know what that be, 'tis just a horsey matter"
So let's head off at a rising trot to taste the Houblon's finest platters!
The cottage is in a beaurtiful rural setting and is very well maintained and supplied. We booked for my brother and his family's visit from Beijing and it was just the tonic they needed. Gill and Nigel couldn't have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly. Their warmth and generosity made a good visit, great. We will definitely return.
A very nice property in a lovely rural location.
The cottage was spacious and clean with a great open kitchen, lounge, dinner leading on to the patio and garden.
The owners couldn't be more friendly allowing full access to all of their gardens around the house and tennis courts.
As dog owners it was great that we could walk the dogs from the cottage out across the fields and to the small wood.
The nearby Houblon pub being a 10 minutes walk away making it perfect for my birthday dinner.
A beautiful place to unwind and enjoy the countryside.
We've just returned to Honeysuckle cottage for a second time and have already booked to go back again in the summer! Its the perfect place to go to recharge your batteries and wind down from the usual chaos of life. The children absolutely loved helping to feed the animals and running around the fields. The cottage is really well equipped for all our needs. Gill and Nigel couldn't do more to make us feel comfortable and welcome. A big thank you from us all :-) x
I booked the cottage for a 40th birthday gathering for three friends and there families including three under 4s. The cottage was perfect for this - 3 big bedrooms each with an ensuite. The open plan living, dining, kitchen area was perfect for relaxing and the children to play. It was great having a boot/utility room for muddy boots. Plenty of parking and outdoor space when the weather is warmer. The cottage is tastefully decorated and had excellent heating, hot showers and the cosy feel we wanted. Gill the owner popped by and was very welcoming. The village pub is worth a visit as was the nearby Tally Ho! pub for excellent food. I would definitely recommend the cottage for family or friend gatherings in a peaceful countryside setting.
