Dating back to the 1750s, Fletland Mill occupies a dream setting for a peaceful break in the countryside; nestled near the sleepy village of Baston, on the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens.

Carefully converted to provide spacious and luxurious accommodation for up to eight guests, the former grain mill boasts glorious views of the River Glen, with the sound of its gently running water guaranteed to soothe you to sleep.

Oh, and a warm welcome is all but guaranteed from friendly owners Melanie and Phil… not to mention their resident animals.

(You can bring your two well-behaved dogs along too, so no-one has to miss out on all the comfort and relaxation – and the epic walks! – available at the Mill).

There are four comfortable, elegantly decorated bedrooms to choose from, three of which feature a TV. Though with captivating views available from every window, you’re unlikely to feel like switching it on!

The spacious master room boasts en-suite facilities – hint: this could be the one to claim for yourself – and there are a further two doubles, along with a charming twin.  

The indulgent family bathroom, complete with roll-top bath, is perfect for relaxing in, or freshening up in after a nature ramble with the dogs, and there’s a further cloakroom to help prevent awkward morning queues.

You’ll soon discover plenty of wildlife to spot (Phil reports that there are more rabbits than he can count!) from deer and badgers, to mink and otters by the river, and red kites swooping overhead as you cradle an afternoon tipple.  

The resident chickens are responsible for the eggs you’ll find on your arrival, and if you’re lucky, you may get to meet the dogs, cat, and horses that also proudly call Fletland their home.

What to do next? With Stamford, the home of Burghley Hall, just a few miles away, along with landmarks that include Peterborough Cathedral, the Nene Valley Railway, and Rutland Water, you’re unlikely to get bored.
