Viking Cottage stands on the site of the old bull pen. It takes its name from The Viking Way, a long-distance footpath which runs south from The Humber Bridge to Rutland Water. Section 5, Donington-on-Bain to Horncastle passes through the farm.

Viking Cottage is a comfortable and cosy 1-bedroom cottage, south facing with stunning views over the fishing lakes and rolling Lincolnshire Wolds.

At the heart of the cottage is the oak panelled lounge/diner with 3 seater red leather settee, soft lighting and ample space for dining.
The adjacent fully fitted kitchen offers an excellent range of pots, pans, utensils and glasses together with a wide range of kitchen appliances, both large and small.

The bedroom, which is also off the lounge is light and spacious with a feature high ash ceiling, comprehensive range of solid pine furniture and a king size bed. There is room for a cot with fee payable on booking.

Board and card games are kept in the sideboard and there is easy reading and local information available in folders on the bookcase. Secure car parking in our private car park. Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement and booking fee is payable. Please see our cottage annexe if you require additional rooms - The Snug is available to supplement all cottages. Secure parking available.
