A stunning holiday cottage five miles north of Stamford, in the heart of the medieval Lincolnshire village of Aunby. The cottage has been extensively restored and refurbished and is now available for holiday or short term rental use.
Aunby is a tranquil village in rolling countryside, and the cottage benefits from lake views, light airy bedrooms and a cosy open plan sitting room with a wood burning stove. It is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the Lincolnshire countryside or visit the many attractions close by, notably Stamford, a Georgian town described by Sir Walter Scott as ‘the finest scene between London and Edinburgh’ and recently featured in ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and Lincoln Cathedral, featured in the Da Vinci Code.

There are fishing lakes within a five minute walk, as well as the river Guash, and Rutland Water and the Tallington Lake complex are all within easy distance and offer many water sports, including sailing, canoeing and rafting as well as being a wonderful place to either cycle or simply walk.
Burghley House is ten minutes away. We are also well placed for the Game Fair, the Robin Hood Game and Country Show which takes place around the weekend of 16-17 October 2010, which is a half an hours drive, straight up the A1, a few miles from the Cottage
