This very pretty, former gardener’s cottage is packed full of character with its low doorways and cosy open fire. It sits within its own private garden amongst the superb setting of Gunby Hall and Gardens.
When the public have all gone home, guests of the cottage are free to enjoy the eight acres of grounds at Gunby Hall and follow the many paths across the surrounding parkland. The gardens offer traditional English flowers, a wonderful rose garden, and extensive vegetable gardens which allow for plenty of exploring.
As the cottage lies between the Lincolnshire Wolds and the bracing coastline, it is ideal for the keen walker or cyclist who wants to explore the local area, including the many National Trust properties, picturesque local villages such as Gunby, and the market towns of Spilsby and Horncastle. The historic city of Lincoln is also just under an hour away, and offers a day full of culture and shopping.
The National Trust has events and activities in Lincolnshire to appeal to all ages throughout the year. Visit the web pages by clicking on the nearby tab, above, to see details of events, nature, walking and cycling trails when planning your holiday.
Heating: Electric storage heating and some underfloor heating.
Garden: The cottage sits at the centre of an enclosed garden which is mainly laid to lawn.
Please Note: Restricted head room into bedroom areas.
Arrival in daylight hours is recommended as access to the cottage is via the gardens which are unlit. If arriving after dark we recommend that you bring torches with you.
Offers: Holiday cottage guests have free entry to Gunby Hall and Gardens during opening hours.
The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.
