About The Old Rectory

A classic Georgian rectory house with a fine regency-style interior to match.

The Old Rectory is a fine example of an 18th-century regency rectory and has an exquisite interior to match. Like stepping into a scene from a Jane Austen novel, much of its original regency character has been retained. Striped wallpaper, high ceilings, a formal dining room, wood panelling and period fireplaces run throughout this luxury Georgian house. It has six spacious bedrooms and overlooks a perfectly pruned garden and open countryside. 

It’s the perfect retreat for large groups wanting to explore the Lincolnshire Wolds, AONB and the coast. It sits at the foot of this stunning area of rolling countryside and is just a 15-minute drive from the coastal town of Skegness. 

Also close by are the historic properties of Gunby Hall, Tattershall Castle and Belton House. By staying at our holiday cottages, you are helping to keep these beautiful places open for all.

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.
