  • Myself and nine others have just returned from a couples holiday here and all i can say is "WOW". Just the whole set up has been designed and created to absolute perfection. We stayed in Red Oak cottage and the views we had across the farm were fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough - the spa pool and garden were well looked after and the interior is brilliant. The owner clearly has a good understanding of how everything in the cottage works as when a bird became lodged inside the chimney for the log burner, he had visited, freed the bird and left within 15 minutes. We will 100% be returning next year. Thanks for having us 🙂

  • Not many places cater for 10. Holy Tree is an absolute gem. Plenty of space. 5 bathrooms! TV in every bedroom. Everything is big enough, sofa, dining table etc. Therefore you can be together when you wish to be, but equally enough room to have some solitude. Kitchen very well equipped. First go in a swim spa, impressive. Lovely owners. Thank you Lincoln. In the words of Arnie, I'll be back.

  • Just returned from a weekend break here to celebrate my 60th birthday and I have to say everything here is the absolute best. Property fixtures and contents are all top class. The spa pool is amazing a true gem and the owners are the nicest people I have ever dealt with when renting holiday homes. If you are planning a break with a large group of family or friends you will not get better than this.

  • Staying in Holly Tree Barn over the Easter Weekend was a trip we will never forget. The welcome to the stay by Tom was beautiful. The extra thought of having a welcoming hamper was so lovely. In the arrival gift there were many activities for the adults and children to do. From having a nature trail hunt in the woods to making our very own Easter eggs. The accommodation is beautifully presented and comfortable to stay in. The barn is very modern and clean and a lot of thought has been put into the design of it. Being an interior design family we all loved the decor so much. All the bedrooms have their own unique touch to it and makes it feel like home. The bedrooms all had dressing gowns, slippers and towels for each guest. There were plenty of toys and games for children as well. The hot tub was especially amazing in the cold weather. Everyone loved the swim spa! Tom, the host was absolutely lovely and helpful. It has definitely been the best place we have stayed in so far and we will be returning back in the summer!

  • A truly beautiful place. We had the best weekend together and the grandson cried when we had to leave! Fantastic quality accommodation with every detail considered. We are all returning next year as our Christmas present to each other. Many thanks!

  • We booked this barn for my 40th. Family from 2 - 72 meeting to celebrate. We ALL were utterly amazed by the standard, design and details of this place. The owners have thought of everything and they spoilt us with flowers, gifts, treats, extras and more. The barn is beyond comfortable and we all agree - we want to stay! The hot tub edition was amazing. We went into Lincoln and did the murder mystery tour which took 3 hours (we stopped off for lunch) and this was another really good activity. Thank you Charlie for a lovely welcome, thank you Tom and family for a brilliant stay and we wish you all the best with this wonderful business you are building!

  • For our daughters 40th birthday this was the perfect retreat where the whole family could gather. Spacious and beautifully designed and equipped, Red Oak Barn embraced us all and allowed each person to relax in their own way, or enjoy fun time together. With historic Lincoln nearby and the thoughtful provision of activities at the barn, we all rate our weekend with top marks.

  • Could not fault the place! Was absolutely beautiful and the perfect host. Going to make it an annual tradition!

  • We had such a wonderful time in Red Oak Barn at Christmas. There’s always the worry when you book somewhere that it won’t be as nice as it looks in the photos...but it was better! The space is just amazing and was just perfect for bringing our family together. The attention to detail is second to none, even down to robes for the children for the spa pool and stockings with presents for each of them! All the children loved the activities and treats and Tom was a superb host. We loved it so much we’ve already booked to come for Christmas this year and this time we’re staying for longer - we can’t wait!

  • Myself and 9 other friends stayed here for a birthday weekend away. The owner, Tom, was extremely helpful and always made sure we had everything we needed - nothing was too much for him. When we arrived there was a greeting card, birthday balloons and a lemon drizzle cake. The barn itself is very modern and was spotless when we first arrived. All the bedrooms were made ready, with dressing gowns, slippers and towels for each guest. The hot tub was a particular favourite of ours which was very safe and easy to use. There was plenty of cute touches around the house, including baskets full of books and even toys for little ones. It's in a great location if you're looking for some peace and quiet and has plenty of beautiful scenery around. The city of Lincoln is only a 15 minute drive away so there is plenty to see and do. Couldn't recommend this place enough and will definitely re-book again in the future!

  • We really enjoyed our weekend in Holly Tree Barn. The accommodation is beautifully presented, so comfortable and has every amenity that you may need; literally the best equipped holiday let I've ever stayed in. Also, the hot tub is huge and stays warm for ages. If all this wasn't enough, the service we received from the owners was fantastic, including generous gifts on arrival and even fetching a takeaway for us on the Sunday night. I'm now trying to figure out a reason to go again!

  • We had a fantastic holiday at Holly Tree Barn. It's a beautiful barn which was very well equipped. Everyone loved the swim spa. Tom had left some lovely touches for us mince pies, stockings for the children. It was a really fantastic holiday.

    Kate December 2017
  • Undoubtedly the best place I have ever stayed. The attention to detail in every room is amazing and not one thing hasn't been thought of. I cannot wait to come here again and shall be telling all my friends about this place! Excelled in every single aspect and like nothing I have seen before.

  • Absolutely amazing stay! Couldn’t have been better! I am extremely picky when it comes to booking somewhere to stay for a weekend break and nowhere normally ever meets my standards but holly tree barn by far exceeded them. Every need was taken care of and the facilities were outstanding and made to feel very welcome upon arrival.

    Matthew - Shrewsbury November 2017
  • An amazing place. They really have thought of everything. We will definitely be back.

    Zoe - Leicestershire October 2017
  • Totally and utterly faultless. Thank you for a wonderful weekend stay.

    Gordon - Sheffield October 2017
  • Fabulous cottage. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated. The owners were so welcoming - amazing welcome goodies for the grown ups and the children. Great location for exploring Lincoln. And the swim spa was incredible!

  • We booked Holly Tree Barn for a family weekend away to celebrate my parent's Ruby Wedding and our daughter's first birthday. We can't rate this place highly enough. When we arrived there was a beautiful welcome pack, home made cake, goody bags for the children and pumpkins for them to carve. We were so touched by the thought that went into this. The barn is stunning. Beautiful inside and outside with plenty of space and absolutely everything we could have wanted or needed. The swim spa was a favourite with all ages! We had so much space and it was a perfect place for such a special family get together. We also took my gran and although she struggles to walk she was able to easily access the open plan living area and her bedroom on the ground floor. At 89 & with deteriorating health it's perhaps the last family holiday she will manage so even more special for us that she was able to sit by the large windows and the warm log burner and watch her 4 great grand children splashing in the swim spa. We have so many precious memories of this weekend. Thank you so much to Tom and the team for making us so welcome and going above and beyond. We would certainly recommend this place and very much look forward to a return trip.

  • We booked so that we could attend Scampton Airshow, with various friends and family coming and going, including a two month old baby. Tom couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful and watching the sheep, cows and horses on the farm meadows was great fun. The garden is secluded and beautifully planted and the barn conversion is spacious and beautifully equipped. We want to go back next year.

    Elizabeth - Nayland September 2017
  • We had a fantastic trip to Holly Tree Barn. The barn is very new and there has been a great deal of thought put into its design and the added features and dĂ©cor is stunning. We received a lovely welcome and the added thoughtful touches of gifts for the children and a very tasty cake made the trip even more special and memorable. The owner is very attentive and the communication prior to arrival was very helpful. If we are in that area again we would definitely like to return. Highly recommended.

    Stephanie - Derbyshire September 2017
  • We stayed in Holly Tree Barn to celebrate a family wedding and it was perfect! Tom welcomed us on our arrival and was helpful throughout our stay. The welcoming gifts were thoughtful and delicious (especially the local cheeses). The barn was comfortable, spacious and delightfully furnished. The added extra touches such as bubble bath and toys for our granddaughter to play with during our stay were appreciated and we all loved the swim spa. All in all Holly Tree Barn provided a fantastic, luxurious and memorable setting for our celebration.
