Sleeps 2

The School House, in Burton-le-Coggles, is a picture-perfect cottage for two in a lovely, quiet village, off the beaten track at the heart of the Easton Estate in the Lincolnshire Vales, near the Rutland border, within walking distance of the award winning Pub, The Cholmeley Arms. Guests have unlimited, free access to Easton Walled Gardens, as they do if staying at The Gatehouse Lodge

With its beautiful barley-twist chimneys and original beams, this is the perfect retreat for couples looking for a cosy, dog friendly getaway in beautiful countryside, or for anyone wanting to explore this unspoiled part of the country. There is a fully fitted kitchen, a lovely sitting room with a woodburning stove, unlimited wireless internet, one lovely, cosy double bedroom and a huge bathroom with double-ended bath and walk-in shower.

The Victorian School House has been designed using the same influences as The Gatehouse Lodge, creating a similar feel, but with its own identity. 

Easton Walled Gardens are about 3 miles from Burton-le-Coggles and as a guest of The School House, you have free access to the gardens at all times, even when closed to the general public. Explore the rediscovered gardens of the former Easton Hall, and enjoy nearly 12 acres of beautiful grounds, with seasonal highlights from snowdrops to sweet peas, and from tulips and daffodils to roses and meadows.

You could also hire the Meadow Retreat in Easton Walled Gardens for a day during your stay. A real slice of heaven set in these beautiful gardens, The Meadow Retreat is a luxury cedar cabin - a 'beach hut' in the Gardens - where you can enjoy some peace and tranquility while you read a good book and sample the cream teas and lunches at the tea shop. Whatever the occasion, for unrivalled rest and relaxation, spend the day at The Meadow Retreat with access to the beautiful surroundings of Easton Walled Gardens at your fingertips. It does need to be pre-booked, so it's worth talking to us about it when you book your stay with us.
