In a nutshell: Wi-fi, pet friendly, walk to pub, wood burning stove, two bathrooms. These Lincolnshire holiday cottages are in the grounds of Thorganby Hall, owned by the Milligan-Manby family who have farmed this land for four generations creating a legacy of wonderful woodland and rich parkland which makes a natural habitat for their herd of Lincoln Red cattle, one of the oldest of the UK's native breeds of beef cattle. Situated in the Lincolnshire Wolds, the highest point in eastern England between Yorkshire and Kent, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of rolling chalk hills stretching for 40 miles and rising to over 500 feet. It was the inspiration for Alfred Lord Tennyson who was born in the village of Somersby and studied at the grammar school in nearby Louth.
