“Beautiful holiday home”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We booked this holiday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.The house was beautiful and spotlessly clean.There is a wonderful hotub.And having the horses coming up and seeing us at the bottom of the garden was lovely.The beds were so comfortable and the rooms were big so lots of space.Lots of Tv around the property so if you have younger family members ideal so they can keep entertained in the evening.
The owners live next door so if you have any questions it's easy to get hold of them.
I would recommend the gables retreat.

“Another enjoyable visit”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I have visited many times simply because this house is stunning and the setting is extremely peaceful and relaxing. The attention to detail like flowers, fruit and a welcome pack is much appreciated and the house itself is incredibly comfortable and cosy.
This was the first time I'd visited at a warmer time of year as it's always been autumn or winter when I've been before. It was lovely to sit out on the patio and watch the horses in the adjoining field and listen to the sound of silence!
I shall continue to book The Gables Retreat for a weekend break at least once a year because nowhere else compares.

“Fantastic 80th Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Three generations of our family descended on The Gables for a weekend of birthday celebrations. The house is stunning, comfortable, luxurious and despite there being eleven of us ranging in age from 10 years old to "80" every one of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.. Accommodation includes huge dining kitchen, two lovely reception rooms, fabulous bedrooms and bathrooms.. we were spoiled for choice.. The hot tub was a lovely treat after a five mile walk along the beach in Theddlethorpe (beautiful beach approx forty minutes drive away) A welcome pack including a freshly baked cake and bread were a lovely touch. Our dog came too, and there are lovely walks down to the river.
Our only problem was that we just didn't have long enough...

“Brilliant holiday house”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Gables Retreat was a great place to meet up with friends. The house was spacious, well decorated and very well kitted out. The outdoor space was excellent for kids and adults with a play area, space for dogs, hot tub, BBQ and garden furniture. The owner, Diane was friendly and supplied everything you needed, enough loo rolls, dishwasher tablets etc for your stay as well as bath and hot tub towels, slippers and towelling robes. She was also very helpful with queries we had regarding local restaurants and taxis before hand. We would recommend this property to others and will return again in the future.

“Stunning House”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Having stayed at The Gables retreat last weekend as part of a group of 11 adults, i would most definitely recommend it.
The house itself is stunning and upon arrival we were presented with a gorgeous welcome gift which included the best chocolate cake ever!
The house was immaculately clean and beautifully presented. The surrounding countryside is lovely. Lincoln itself is also a lovely city and must be visited.
Each year as a group we book a house for a weekend away and a catch up. This is by far the nicest one we've stayed in to date and catered to all of our needs. The hot tub was lovely and also spotless.
Diane and her husband where also extremely welcoming.
Thanks for a lovely stay!

“Top class in every way.”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We chose the Gables retreat rather late in the day as being the only property left that fitted our group needs. The property came up to expectations in every way: comfortable; clean; sensibly planned; very well modernised; spacious; having well maintained grounds; offering activities for children in the garden.
Lincolnshire surprised us, exceeded our expectations and we would happily return! The property is well situated for Wolds and for coast but the house and the immediate environment offer so much that there is no need to plan big trips out. We were very pleased with everything.
