    About this property

    Ivy House Barn is situated in the tranquil Lincolnshire village of Heckington. Located in a wonderful rural location, this is the perfect relaxing retreat for yourself and your other half. Tucked away in the grounds of the owners property, this cottage is accessed along a private gravelled drive with you entering into a heart-warming open-plan living room. The sitting area is enhanced by a cosy sloping ceiling with beams and an exposed red brick feature wall, along with the comfy sofas where you can sit back and relax with a good book. Wander through into the stylish, well equipped kitchen and prepare meals to serve at the dining table over a glass of wine. This floor is complete with a charming family shower room. A carpeted staircase takes you to a superb, open double bedroom, featuring exposed beams and even offering a comfortable sofa. When the sun emerges, why not treat yourself to an alfresco meal out on the private patio? Ivy House Barn rests on Heckington's High Street, the shops, swimming pool (open in the summer months only), cafés, pubs and bars are all just a short stroll away. Heckington is also home to the UK's last remaining 8 sail windmill, which is certainly worth a visit. Lincolnshire, known as the Bomber County is home of the RAF, with it's 100th anniversary this year, and bases such as Cranwell, Coningsby, with it's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and Scampton (home to the Red Arrows) are all an easy drive away. Lincoln is also home to the Bomber Command Memorial. Towns such as Boston and Grantham are nearby and benefit from a much wider range of amenities with much to do also. Further afield, the historic city of Lincoln is a 25 minute drive away with plenty on offer. The perfect base for that romantic retreat you've been longing for.

    A village placed in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire. Heckington hosts a Grade I listed church and a historic windmill. There is also a shop, pubs and bars, a swimming pool and two cafés. It also holds the Heckington Show each year. A wider range of amenities can be found in Boston and Grantham, whilst the city of Lincoln is further afield. The Lincolnshire Wolds aonb are also available.

    "In particular the oven was so filthy it could not be used. The bathroom left lots to be desired with the only shelf available almost falling off the wall. There was nowhere in the bathroom to put towels, we had to have a rack in the reception room to dry the towels."

    " Ivy House Barn (IHB) is a well furnished, comfortable and clean converted barn within the grounds of the owner's house and is accessed via a private driveway. The accommodation and patio garden are private and tranquil. It is a two minute walk from the village shops, pub and a good selection of takeaways. IHB is central to several towns and many attractions including a good number of Historic WW2 Royal Airforce stations, including some that are still operational, such as RAF Coningsby, which also houses the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely barn conversion to anyone. Denise is great host and could not have been more helpful. We would gladly return to stay here again in the future. "

    " Its a great place to stay for a week in Lincolnshire and we would definately return in the future. We had a lovely welcome from the owners and if you need anything whilst you are there then they will be sure to help you. It has a great location in the village with good co-op and shops, takeaways and pub all 5 mins walk from property. Be sure to go and visit the 8 sail windmill in the village also!! "
