“The most memorable stay in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at The Gables Retreat last weekend as a large group of eleven & had such a brilliant time. From the start Diane was so incredibly helpful with our booking. She replied promptly to all my emails & questions & nothing was too much bother
Diane went over & above in recommending places to go & things to do. Directions & information for our stay were spot on. We were able to find the house quite easily even without the sat nav.
The Gables Retreat is the most amazing house. It's beautiful & the attention to detail is incredible. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated & look amazing! It's very spacious so even with eleven people you don't feel like you are on top of each other.
There are four bathrooms which are gorgeous, especially the one with the large walk in shower & bath. Having this number of bathrooms really helps with a large party!
We arrived to a welcome basket was just lovely. The cake, bottle of fizz & other bits were a lovely touch. As were the bath robes & slippers!
We felt welcome & able to relax & enjoy ourselves at all times. Diane & her husband made themselves available & yet were not imposing. We had a gentle reminder text about the hot tub was written in a way that I did not feel we were being told off, just that it would be helpful if we covered it.
The hot tub was just brilliant! We made good use of it & was a nice luxurious part of the stay. It is well maintained & kept to a high standard of cleanliness.
The Gables is a 20 min taxi ride into Lincoln which is a beautiful city & has lots of restaurants & pubs. Plenty to do for a large group!
We had the best time & everyone said that they would love to come again. I will certainly be recommending The Gables Retreat to family & friends. We are already looking at a booking for next year!
Thankyou again Diane & family for everything that you did to make our stay so memorable.

“Truly beautifull escape.”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Travelled with our family of 8 adults 2 children and our family dog. The Gables Retreat is a real gem . The accommodation was first class and all fixtures and fittings were of a high standard.The house has retained its charm whilst offering everything you could need for a family break. The garden,childrens play area and animals were a great hit with the children,whilst the adults enjoyed the hot tub. We were blessed with glorious weather and spent most of the weekend outside making use of the BBQ . Would highly recommend you spend some time here.

“Lovely welcome, excellent stay”

Exceeded our expectations for a lovely Easter weekend away. Felt extremely welcome and with tennis, jacuzzi, croquet, animals and games for the kids, we had all bases covered. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic fantastic fantastic!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The Gables Retreat is a fantastic and beautiful place to stay if your looking for a peaceful, relaxing break. With everything you could possibly think of, this gorgeous cottage catered to our every need. From the beautifully decorated rooms, the tranquil surroundings (where all you will hear is the occasional sheep or horse!) and the personal touches, our party of 8 adults and 3 children (under 4yrs) had a brilliant holiday together.

I cannot fault this holiday home! The pictures shown don't do it justice....each room has been thoughtfully decorated and accessorised to make you feel at home and able to switch off from reality during your stay. Definately of 5* quality.

We loved the welcome hamper...wine, cake, home made marmalade...and even some Easter eggs for the kiddies. What a fabulous touch!

Lastly...we absolutely loved the huge hot tub on the patio...a great treat each night for the adults to unwind! (Needless to say I doubt we'll ever go anywhere without a hot tub ever again!)

You MUST visit this stunning holiday home! Thank you to Diane and her family for welcoming us and helping us have a memorable holiday x

“Absolutely fabulous stay, so good we're already rebooked to go again”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

From my initial enquiry Dianne the owner has always been very helpful and professional. She welcomed us shortly after our arrival and even though the owners live close by it still felt very private. 5 couples visited to celebrate two of our birthdays.
The house has been a labour of love for Dianne, transforming her former childhood home into The Gables Retreat and this really shows as every room has been beautifully decorated and dressed with much thought and style. She has even inspired some of our group to start re-decorating their own homes!
The house felt so warm and cosy when we arrived with lights on with a wonderful hamper ready and waiting for us.
Straight away we felt at home and enjoyed the house and the Jacuzzi despite the cold weather, it was wonderful! If you are planning to visit as a group it's ideal as it has plenty of room for everyone. We spent most of our time in the kitchen dining room as we could all be together and the cooks didn't feel left out whilst cooking all 10 breakfasts!
We enjoyed it so much we have already re-booked to go again to celebrate a special birthday in October. Although we did look at alternative accommodation for October as we wondered if its ever the same going back to the same place a second time, we quickly came to the conclusion after much research that quite simply we just couldn't beat this house and so we booked up quickly as I think everyone who stays here seem to be going back and obviously are thinking the same as us. It has everything you need to have a great time away from busy lives. We all left feeling really relaxed and very happy.
We would highly recommend staying at The Gables Retreat, you will not be disappointed by the house or the owners, they are truly lovely people.
