The Gables is a beautifully refurbished country home in a farm setting in the East Midlands. Bucolic (a paddock in the rear contains a horse and her foal along with several friendly sheep). The interior is roomy with a modern kitchen and luxurious baths both up and down. The proprietor, Ms Marshall lives on an adjacent property and is friendly and helpful. A hot tub completes the picture. About a half hour from Lincoln and a little longer to York it is a perfect place to base a vacation for a family or group of friends. Pubs are close by. Could not recommend more highly!
We were in Lincolnshire for a family wedding and had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful house in the country for a week. The house easily accommodated the 11 of us in style and Diane and Bill were fantastic and patient hosts. The house is situated in a picturesque part of the countryside and is close to the market town of Market Rasen for shopping and amenities. All of us remarked on how nice it was to be able to relax, eat, and socialize with each other in such a great location. Diane was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the stay - from ensuring the wifi worked, to showing how the jacuzzi worked, and even helping with the laundry! When you arrive, the house is stocked with food - a yummy chocolate cake to the BEST eggs we have ever tasted. At the end of the trip I didn't want to leave! We traveled from the US and would definitely stay again. This is beautiful gem of a place and hosts to match.
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.
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.
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...
