Property Description

This beautifully converted, single-storey, former stable stands detached in the grounds of the owner’s home in the rural hamlet of Stragglethorpe. The property has retained many original features, and is just 8 miles from Newark and 12 miles from Grantham. The small village church is believed to be one of only four unaltered Saxon churches in the country. This is an ideal touring base with a visit to Lincoln and its imposing cathedral - used for the filming of The Da Vinci Code - just 15 miles away. Also within an easy drive are Belvoir Castle, Belton House, Southwell Minster and RAF Cranwell. The showground at Newark is host to many antique fairs and other events. Shop 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

Beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, kitchen area and French doors, all with tiled floor. Utility. Two double bedrooms, one with French doors, and twin bedroom with French doors; each with en-suite shower room and toilet or bathroom and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We enjoyed The Stables very much and would recommend it. July 2012.
  2. Fabulous property - website does not do it justice! June 2012.
  3. Ideal for three couples wanting privacy (each bedroom has excellent en suite facilities) as well plenty of space to relax together. Lovely and warm on cold days. Owners very helpful and friendly. April 2012.
  4. Beautiful stable conversion. Lovely features. Incredible en-suites in all the rooms. The pictures do not do it justice! Dec 2011.
  5. Fantastic accommodation in a lovely setting. The owners were very welcoming. I would strongly recommend this accommodation to others. One of the best properties we have visited. The images on the website don’t do the property justice! Sept 2011.
  6. This was a weekend break for four professional women getting away from it all! Our stay was excellent. The owners are probably amongst the best we have experienced, accessible, informative and care about your holiday. Trust me when I say we have all travelled far and wide in our careers and stayed in the best and worst of accomodation! The Stables are very spacious and fitted out in a charming yet relaxed manner. An excellent kitchen kitted out with all the must have’s for self catering, showers/wetrooms galore. Sitting out in the large garden which comes with the package is the icing on the cake we would highly recommend this property and its owners. July 2011.
  7. Very good accommodation for disabled, everything being on ground floor, shower facilities excellent. Heating was difficult to control - very warm especially in bedrooms. April 2011.
  8. Beautiful conversion. Sept 2010.
  9. The property was beautiful, nice spacious rooms, wildlife nearby, a perfect place to be. June 2010.
  10. Very well equipped, all bedrooms en-suite, clean and spacious. Nice location. The cot supplied for our baby was in good condition. The property also has an extensive garden. The location is handy for the A1, and trips to Newark and Lincoln. May 2010.

  15. Great location, walks for the dogs just across the road, friendly owner and lovely barn conversion. We had a great time. Sept 2009.
  16. I could not fault the stables as a holiday home. If I had to suggest any improvements as I have a wheelchair user in the family it would be the large shingle was not wheelchair friendly. Sept 2009.
  17. Outstanding accommodation in a wonderful setting with lovely owners. June 2009.
