Cottage
Welcome to our romantic, cosy cottage, set in the delightful south Lincolnshire village of Castle Bytham. Our lovingly restored barn conversion offers bags of character, combined with comfort and style. Exposed stone walls and natural oak are set off by luxurious furnishings and contemporary touches that even extend to large flat-screen TVs and Blu-ray players. Our work regularly requires us to stay at top hotels around the world, and we have used that experience to create a fabulous boutique-style home from home. Attention to detail is the key here – from craftsman-made cupboard doors to the chic feature roll-top bath. This self-contained one-bedroom cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway at any time of the year – just the place to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect gas...Welcome to our romantic, cosy cottage, set in the delightful south Lincolnshire village of Castle Bytham. Our lovingly restored barn conversion offers bags of character, combined with comfort and style. Exposed stone walls and natural oak are set off by luxurious furnishings and contemporary touches that even extend to large flat-screen TVs and Blu-ray players. Our work regularly requires us to stay at top hotels around the world, and we have used that experience to create a fabulous boutique-style home from home. Attention to detail is the key here – from craftsman-made cupboard doors to the chic feature roll-top bath. This self-contained one-bedroom cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway at any time of the year – just the place to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect gas fire after a long walk in the countryside. That said, the property is equally well suited to families or two couples, as there is a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge. Situated at the end of our drive, the cottage has off-road parking for up to two cars and a lovely patio area for the exclusive use of guests. Glen Cottage enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting, and is within easy walking distance of two pubs (serving excellent food and real ale). Children are welcome; but unfortunately we are unable to accommodate pets, or smokers.More

About the neighbourhood
Castle Bytham (with a population of 500+) is a picturesque village and quite different from what you might expect to find in Lincolnshire. It is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and woodlands, ideal for long walks. The 11th Century Norman castle that gave its name to the village is long gone, but its impressive mound remains a focal point. In June the community organises the Midsummer Fair and Street Market, which has grown into quite a major event for the area, attracting upwards of 5,000 people. Castle Bytham is the ideal place from which to explore the historic town of Stamford, just a 15 minute-drive to the south of the village, where there are great boutique shops, ancient inns, and a wide variety of restaurants. Stamford also has a leisure centre with swimming pool, i...
Getting around
You will need a car to get the most out of your break or holiday. There is a bus service which travels between Grantham and Stamford, but it's not very frequent.
