WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO BE IN THE 2016 GOOD HOTEL GUIDE . This is done solely by recommendation. We are one of only five chosen in the whole county.
Stewton is a hamlet comprised of only a few houses, a manor house, a farm, a church and the Old Rectory. Louth - only a couple of miles away, down a country road - is an historic and bustling market town with a range of specialist shops, good restaurants and pubs and one of England's grandest parish churches. It is also an ideal jumping-off point for this part of the county, with Lincoln Cathedral and Castle, antiquing at Hemswell Cliff and Horncastle, the coast, the many bird sanctuaries and beaches, seals at Donna Nook, racing at Cadwell Park, or walks through the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, all within easy reach.
The Old Rectory was built in 1846, an early Victorian house in the Georgian style, and is set in three acres of lawns and mature trees. The garden is filled with wildlife: wood pigeons, finches, pheasants, the odd heron and fox, squirrels and, at night, badgers. The Old Rectory sits opposite Stewton's Norman church, at the end of a quiet lane, with only a farm close by, making this the perfect place to relax.
A warm welcome is what we specialise in. All of our bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. They all have coffee and tea making facilities. Our suite has a four-poster bed, adjoining sitting room with sofa bed, en suite bathroom and separate single bedroom, making it ideal for a family or group, or as a luxuriously spacious double room. We welcome children of any age and can provide a travel cot and high chair. All bedding is 100% cotton and all the beds have down duvets and pillows but synthetic bedding is available for those who prefer it.
We take breakfast seriously at the Old Rectory and offer full English, continental or vegetarian from 6.30am, and, within reason, as late as you like. PLEASE TELL US ABOUT ANY FOOD ALLERGIES OR INTOLERANCES THAT YOU MAY HAVE. We have ample off-road parking for cars, trailers and motorcycles. Dogs, if well-trained, are also welcome and we can show you various short walks across the fields or longer ones along the Louth Navigation Canal.
We hope you have an enjoyable stay at the Old Rectory. PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN THE AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY COINCIDES WITH THE SUPERBIKES AT CADWELL, A MINIMUM STAY OF THREE NIGHTS IS REQUIRED.
