A beautifully designed, detached holiday home in Skellingthorpe near Lincoln, with three flexible bedrooms accommodating up to six people.

Broadleaf House is a wonderful, detached holiday home in Skellingthorpe near Lincoln, beautifully designed by the owner themselves. The property is bright and spacious, with three flexible bedrooms; one with a king-size bed, en-suite shower room and a day bed with the ability to be converted into two singles, alongside two rooms with super king-size beds that can both be unzipped into twin beds too. There is also a bathroom with a corner bath and a separate shower cubicle, a kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room with a woodburning stove and a snug seating five where you can watch TV. There is also a second dining table in the conservatory, with views over the garden. From the large landing on the first floor, doors open onto a balcony with seating, so you can soak up the views with a glass of your favourite tipple. There is off road parking for four cars, including a space under a car port, and a horse box. The paddock is available with an electric fence and water by arrangement with the owner, and off road hacking can be enjoyed too. With so many wonderful things to do nearby, as well as beautiful accommodating to return to, Broadleaf House truly does make a fantastic holiday home for all!


Comfortable and Beautiful
When I write a review for TripAdvisor, I do try to be objective and give the plus and minus points. My problem with writing about this property is, there are no negatives! I think this is probably the best places we have ever been to! Broadleaf house is set in the Old North Wood just outside the village of Skellingthorpe. The location is perfect for the country but, is also handy for the city of Lincoln. We used it as a base to visit some of the great local attractions. This is a beautifully furnished, well equipped spacious property which is incredibly comfortable. We were 5 adults and 1 under 2 year old and there was plenty of space for us all. We all had a great time and the family insisted that we plan a return trip.

A Great Stay
I have just had a lovely weekend stay at Broadleaf House, in a group of 6 adults so we could attend Lincoln Christmas Market. Arriving early the owner was very welcoming and showed us around the house explaining well how the amenity?s worked, such as the log burning fire in the spacious living room. The house is spotlessly clean with fresh crisp white bedding on all the very comfy beds in the spacious bedrooms, one with on suite. 2 TV?s are available a very large HD TV in the TV room and a large smart TV in the living room again all fully explained to us on arrival., The owner was very helpful with regards to a taxi company and this was ?14.70 for 6 adults in to Lincoln, which we thought was great value We have all had a great weekend and would not hesitate to recommend this house for a short break or indeed a longer holiday, our only negative comment would be that the property could do with some nice pictures on the walls and a few bits and pieces around to make it a little more cosy, the house is quite modern in its feel and this would make it a little warmer in feel, please don?t see this as a criticism as it?s a personal preference which our group would like to have seen Overall a great property, very pleasant owner and spotlessly clean, we would defenatly book again should we be visiting Lincoln in a group again. Highly recommend

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Broadleaf House and will definitely recommend it to family and friends. The accommodation is excellent, providing ample space for 4 adults and a toddler to enjoy time both as a family and separately for some well earned rest. The house is located in a rural area yet is near enough to civilisation to ensure you aren't too isolated. It provided an excellent base to explore the local area.
Mrs Bushell

The owner met us at the property and gave us a tour. She was friendly and approachable throughout our stay. The property was perfect for our stay. It was set back from the road on a country lane, quiet. We had a choice of the 2 large bedrooms, with a smaller one for our children. The kids loved the dvd selection and took over the smaller lounge room.

Everything was excellent; from the luxury of the house itself to the prime location near Lincoln and the welcoming owner! Will definitely be coming back in the Summer season to enjoy the beautiful gardens!
