Get a real taste for England’s history by staying in this converted Norman Church! This Grade II* listed building provides an excellent base for exploring Louth, the Lincolnshire Wolds and some classic British beaches. With it’s peaceful setting in a tiny village on the edge of Louth, the church also provides the perfect place to relax and unwind. We converted the church in 2014 and lived in it for 4 years until the arrival of our son, we love it and really hope you have a wonderful stay!

The space
My architect husband saw the church for sale in the local paper. It was in a pretty sorry state so he decided buy it and bring it back to life. We lived in it and even had our wedding reception there but the arrival of our little boy meant that the open plan layout was slightly less practical for everyday life, so now we would like to share it with you lovely lot.

We maintained as many historical features as possible with out sacrificing the comfort and functionality of a 21st century home this means you can froth the milk for your cappuccino using the built in coffee machine whilst gazing at the 7 meter high stone arch or glance at the original Norman font whilst catching up with your favourite box set on the smart tv with super fast broad band.

The entire church has been sensitively converted into living space providing a very large kitchen/dining room/ living room. The kitchen has an induction job, microwave and good size fridge freezer and has all the space and utensils you need to whip up a mega Sunday roast (our family always insisted on having Christmas at the church so we have tested this out a few times). The dining table can seat up to 10 people and the two large sofas provide plenty of space for lounging. The open plan layout means you can enjoy a chat and glass of wine whilst dinner is being prepared with out anyone being marooned in the kitchen on their own.
The master bedroom has a super king bed and spacious en-suite with a rainfall shower and huge bath. Please note that it is separated from the living area by a giant wardrobe and a curtain, offering visual privacy but not total separation. The second bedroom is located in the old vestry, with access to the second bathroom just across the living area.

There is underfloor heating as well as large cast iron radiators which keep the church cosy on even the coldest day.

There is a large gravel drive way with space for 5 cars and a large lawn for use by guests.

Guest access
Guest have access to the whole building and have a private driveway and garden

Other things to note
There is a graveyard on one side of the church with a public foot path running through it, past the door of the church.

The church has a wide double door and arranged over one level, however there are single steps up from the main body of the church into the bedrooms and the path from the drive to the door is gravelled

Well behaved dogs are welcome however please note that the garden is not dog proof, so dogs cannot be left outside unattended

Location

Lincolnshire, England, United Kingdom

Located in a small village on the Edge of Louth. It is possible to walk into town or walk across the fields and enjoy the Lincolnshire country side.

The church is located within 5 minutes walk of the canal which runs from Louth to the coast (approx 30 miles). This provides a really lovely route into the town or across the country side and we are very proud of the fact that kingfishers can be spotted on this pretty waterway.

Louth is a quaint town which was built on the wool trade in the 1700s. Today it has a good range of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. All within 10 minutes drive of the church and Louth has 3 supermarkets (Aldi, Morrison’s, Coop) with the closest being a 5 minute drive from church.

Louth is also the gateway for the Lincolnshire wolds which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is excellent for walking or cycling.

We are also close to a range of beaches from the wild sands of Donna Nook to the classic seaside towns of Sutton on Sea, Mablethorpe and Skegness, though our favourite spot is the Seascape cafe at Chapel St Leonard’s.

Those who have an interest in history may like to visit Lincoln (40 minute drive) to take in the cathedral and view the original Magna Carta
