About Orchard Cottage

Explore Gunby Hall and Gardens when you stay in this estate cottage set within its parklands.

Orchard Cottage is a pretty, former gardener’s cottage packed full of character. The cosy property boasts low doorways, a cosy open fire and a private enclosed garden, set within the sweeping parklands of Gunby Hall.

Take advantage of the cottage’s unique position and follow walking trails through the estate.   Explore the gardens before the visitors arrive and see the rose garden in full bloom. As a guest you’re also invited to explore the main house free of charge. 

Head a little further afield and you’ll soon reach the Lincolnshire coast. Enjoy a bracing coastal walk before heading home for a cosy dinner. The historic city of Lincoln, with its famous cathedral, is just under an hour away from the cottage offers a day full of culture and shopping, enough to keep the whole family entertained.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
