You will enjoy a fully modernised one bedroom cottage, which was reconstructed from the original cow byre on the farm. It is all on ground floor including the bathroom, with shower over bath.

It is ideal for two people with its double bedroom but a child could comfortably be accommodated if necessary.

You have panoramic views over the valley and you will sit snugly in the centre of a conservation area with an abundance of wildlife.

Its sunny position enjoys the vista of the large garden of the adjacent farm house but you can enjoy your own little corner garden with orchard.

You also have private parking and private access.

This Lincolnshire cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the local attractions and there are many on offer, particularly Sleaford with its popular Cogglesford Watermill, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre and Newark with its interesting air museum. The historic city of Lincoln with its castle, museums, galleries, excellent shopping and renowned annual Christmas market, and of course, the beautiful cathedral, which looks down over the town is also within easy reach.

What others think

Very pleasant accommodation in splendid surroundings. Excellent attention to detail by owners - fresh flowers greatly added to the warm welcome.

Jackie and Nigel Kitch, Suffolk

A lovely location, very peaceful and tranquil. Very well equipped and looked after by thoughtful and attentive owners. Always happy to ensure that you feel comfortable and enjoy the surroundings

Mike Williams, Lincolnshire

What a wonderful location. Away from the hustle and bustle and yet close enough to the roads to get out and about in Lincolnshire.

Geoff & Carole Towers, Newcastle on Tyne

Absolutely lovely place in a great setting. So homely, cosy and comfortable. We had a really lovely family get-together.

The Orchard Family, Nuneaton

Had a wonderful 2 weeks in the barn, which felt like a home the moment you stepped through the door. A charming property for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Will certainly recommend to others.

Dorothy McKechnie & Ian Flanigan, Cumbria

Wonderful accommodation; home form home. Hopefully will be back in two years. Enjoyed seeing the barn owl flying into the space you have made for it.

Heather Wingard, Penscola, Florida

We have stayed in a few cottages/barns over the past few weeks(moving nightmare!!) and can honestly say that Hilltop Barn outshines them all. Our children have been settled, comfortable and happy for the first time in three weeks, my husband and I are less stressed and our dog Ruby is in her element. Accommodation is fab, good quality equipment, comfortable beds with soft warm clean bedding. Showers always hot. I could go on and on … A huge thank you and we have recommended this to our friends.

The Friel family

We had a wonderful week in lovely surroundings, visiting family and friends in hitherto unknown Lincolnshire. Our visit has been made even more special by beautiful weather and the creature comforts of Hilltop Cottage. We found everything we could possibly need, appliances that are easy to use, lovely fluffy towels and good cotton sheets. Welbourn is a friendly visit with helpful folk, especially in the well-stocked PO stores and charming pub the Joiners Arms. There is an hourly bus service to Lincoln and Grantham. As well as Lincoln, Newark and the villages we can recommend the quiet seaside and Sandilands, near Mablethorpe. It’s worth dropping in to the Fat Sea Gull shop there for delicious ice cream. Full marks Lincolnshire!!

Mr & Mrs Browne

This really is a special place. Warm, cosy and comfortable, in no time it felt like home. Watching the wildlife has been great, even washing up was no problem with all the birds to watch, a squirrel digging up his winter hoard,not to mention a couple of muntjac deer walking along the hedge side. We have enjoyed walking along the private walks here, especially first thing in the morning with the dog, seeing all the pheasants and rabbits. Had some good walks within a few minutes at Bloxholm Nature reserve (the woods are lovely), High Dyke (the old Roman road, Ermine Street) and around Temple Brur. All great quiet places and ideal to walk a dog. Can’t wait to come back!

L D & R Nottingham

This was our second time here and just as good as the last time. See you next year.

Paul Allan Alex, Wakefield

Everything was perfect for our family visit. The kids loved playing out in the field and walking the paths. We loved our farm stay in Lincolnshire

Colebys, California

Very good accommodation! Perfect for celebrating a 30th birthday with the family. Lovely big space for children to run around in the sunshine.

Hannah and Jon Booth

Such wonderful views across the valley just a stroll away

Delia and Norman Hodges, Buckinghamshire

I had another awesome time here with my so and daughter. We love the barn.

Peter McCrory, Canada

Perfect location for us to attend an event at RAF Cranwell. Immaculate property with everything we needed. We can recommend the butcher in Navenby, also the Five Bells in Bassingham for a dog friendly location.

The Robinsons, Oxfordshire

Kids loved their ‘park’ in the outside area. Lots of space for them to play. Loved watching and listening to rabbits, pheasants and the nesting Bluetits. A real home from home; everything you need.

Robert and Maxine, Dudley

We’ve really enjoyed our stay here. The barn is comfortable and packed with character. The walks around the farm are fascinating and varied. The long field across the lane has spectacular views and the area around the pond behind the barn is packed with wildlife. We were particularly impressed by the diversity of trees and the thoughtful planting that will make the field even more beautiful.

Steve, Jan and Benson (woof) Way, Wakefield

Our second Christmas stay at Hilltop Barn. Kitchen facilities are excellent and Peter is happy to provide any extras required. Visited Five Bells at Bassingham for a drink and must remember to go back for a meal on our next visit. Feels like a home from home rather than a holiday let.

Delia and Norman Hodges, Bucks

Will most certainly be back. Everything very cosy and comfortable.

Montenegro family, Elche Spain

A wonderful peaceful place to stay; great for exploring the Lincolnshire countryside.

Stephen and Annick Wright, Herefordshire

A great short break in a lovely barn, enjoyed our Sunday walk and the wonderful views.

The Owen family

We had a very relaxing long weekend, including our dog. We found the cottage to be immaculately clean, comfortable and cosy. We had a lovely dinner at the Kings Head in Navenby and good walks at Hartsholme Country Park and the Fossdyke Canal, starting at the Pyewipe Inn. We hope to come back again.

Jenny and Nick, West Midlands

Brilliant as usual. The woods were so much fun. Loved the uncut field.

D Bell, Saudi

Came away with family of four of us, two disabled, two dogs. All great, warm, cosy, homely. Beds very comfortable. Peter most helpful.

Anne Clarke, London

A very enjoyable and comfortable week - very comfortable beds - slept soundly every night.

Jane Repman & Mrs M E Wright

We all had a super time in the barn. Really comfortable and well appointed. The Thornes family

We have had a lovely time staying at the barn and in Lincolnshire. My Grandad has given his seal of approval! Will stay again.
