The Low Barn

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Timberland, Lincolnshire, England
The Low Barn at Holmdale House has been created from two original barns, used to house farm equipment when Holmdale House was a fully functioning village farm.
Our conversion has sought to retain all the character of the original buildings whilst offering the best of modern design and facilities.
Please note that The Low Barn is situated in the village of Martin as shown on the location map, 2 miles from Timberland, its registered address on this site. The village of Martin is ideally situated for access to the east coast, the nearby cities of Lincoln and Nottingham and even convenient trains to London.

Additional amenities & feature info
The Low Barn is accessed from the private car parking area, via a gate into the large courtyard garden. Immediately outside the cottage stands a small wooden terrace with a table and two chairs, perfect for that intimate breakfast on sunny mornings.

Resorts, such as Sutton-on-Sea and Mablethorpe are within an hour's drive.
Towards the west and at a distance of about 13 miles lies the historic city of Lincoln, with its famous cathedral and castle, as well as various museums, shops, cinema and restaurants. in the other direction at about the same distance lies Horncastle, a very pretty market town (Lincolnshire has several), known especially for its antique shops.

It's as easy to park at the station and take the train to Lincoln as to drive into Lincoln! There are several sustrans cycling route around the county.
