Holiday Rental House
The Hayloft at the Manor House Stables is spacious yet cosy and provides a lovely romantic retreat. We restored the Grade II Listed stables 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. We aim to provide a special stay for our guests - from fresh flowers, a welcome hamper, vegetables from the garden (or local shop), a loaf of bread, sausages, wine, chocolates, luxury toiletries and much more. We also run courses on-site which you are very welcome to attend (prior booking only) or we can arrange a course just for you - see our website for more detail. Choose between bread, chocolate or jam making, or crochet, knitting or making natural bath & beauty products. We were the Select Lincolnshire Award winners for our Teaching in 2015, 2016 and 2017. The Manor House Stables is ideally located in the heart of rural LIncolnshire within driving distance of the Wolds, Coast and Fens. The historic city of LIncoln is only 20 minutes drive away and the lovely Victorian town of Woodhall Spa is just 4 miles away. The Stables is situated at the edge of the small village of Martin which has both a pub (which serves food). Another great pub/restaurant is just in our next village of Timberland which is walkable in just 20 - 25 minutes. The nearest restaurant town is Woodhall Spa where you will find shops, tearooms, restaurants, Tourist Information Centre, a lovely little 'Cottage Museum' and a wealth of history ranging from the unique Petwood Hotel to the iconic 'Kinema in the Woods' - an old-fashioned cinema showing up-to- date films. Woodhall was an famous for its Spa in Victorian and Edwardian times and then became an important centre in the 2nd World War as the Petwood became the Officer's Mess for the now famous 'Dambusters'. In the 2010 East Midlands Awards we were delighted to receive Bronze in Sustainable Tourism and Silver in the best in Self Catering Category. We are also winners of the Tastes of LIncolnshire Self catering Awards 2010 and have been 'Highly Commended' in many other years. More

About the neighbourhood
The Manor House Stables is ideally located in the heart of rural Lincolnshire. The geographical centre of Lincolnshire is Woodhall Spa and we are just 4 miles from there! It is an Edwardian town with shops, tearooms, a historic cinema and two famous golf courses. The historic city of Lincoln with its cathedral, castle, museums, shops and restaurants is only a 20 - 30 minute drive away. The Lincolnshire coast is also within easy reach (about 1 hour). There is a vast amount to see and do in this county! Come and see for yourself!
Getting around
Getting around Lincolnshire is really best done by car. It is a large county and many of the places to see and things to do located in the rural countryside. However, we do have guests who come here by train (nearest train station at Metheringham just 3.5 miles from here) and get a taxi here (must be pre-ordered; we also offer free collection). There are buses to Woodhall Spa and Lincoln and the train from Metheringham to Lincoln. Sometimes our guests arrive here by public transport and never go anywhere at all! They are happy to spend their time by the wood-burning stove playing board games, watching films and drinking wine! All major supermarkets (Waitrose, Tescos etc) deliver to this area so you don't need to go anywhere at all!
