Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England
The Hayloft at the Manor House Stables is spacious yet cosy and provides a lovely romantic retreat. The Grade II Listed stables were restored in 2008 using eco-friendly materials and traditional methods. Natural insulation, cast iron radiators and a wood burning stove mean that the accommodation is lovely and warm throughout the winter.

The Hayloft is a perfect retreat for two but there is sleeping space for 2 more in an unusual box bed in the living area (both adults and children love it!). Other features include a luxury bathroom with a copper spa bath and a shower and small sauna. There is a Rangemaster cooker in the well-equipped kitchen and a very unusual wooden fridge! A small private garden is situated at the bottom of the outside staircase with wooden furniture, a garden swing and barbeque set.

Had a very comfortable few nights stay in the Hayloft, Sherry was a great hostess and generously supplied so many tasty extras which were really appreciated by us all. Place was kitted out with everything you could possibly need.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. I am really pleased you enjoyed the tasty extras! And nothing is quite as important as good hospitality - thank you so much for your compliments regarding this aspect of your stay.
