Tony Watson, The Old Posthouse B&B
We are a family run Bed and Breakfast located in the former village post office. The building dates back to Victorian times and has been recently refurbished to a high standard to offer a welcoming and comfortable place to stay - "a home from home" as a number of our guests have commented. VisitEngland have awarded us a 4 star rating together with a Silver Award and a Breakfast Award. We have been given the AA Covid Confident accreditation. Located in the quiet village of Normanby by Spital, we are a 2 minute walk from the local village pub and a 5 minute drive from the A15 and easy access to the historic city of Lincoln, Market Rasen Racecourse, the indoor antiques centres at Hemswell Cliff and a varriety of other attractions. We offer a great place to stay for exploring large parts of Lincolnshire or if visiting the area on business; and have plenty of private parking at the side of the house behind gates which we shut and lock at night. The 3 bedrooms have been tastefully decorated and we use luxury Hypnos mattresses to provide for a great night's sleep. We offer a wide selection of teas and coffees. Guests can sit outside and enjoy the garden. We take great pride in offering a great breakfast and to that end use quality Lincolnshire produce so that guests can start the day with the great Taste of Lincolnshire. We also offer evening meals by separate arrangement. We started taking guests in April 2018 and have been given a Guest Review Award for 2018 by Booking.com for getting 10 out of 10 for all our reviews on their website; and recently were chosen as one of 3 finalists for the Tourism Excellence Awards in 2019 and 2020 for Lincolnshire for Best Bed and Breakfast. To find out for yourself what our guests thought about us you can read reviews of us on Booking.com, TripAdvisor, Facebook or Google.
We want our guests to enjoy their stay and we do everything we can to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable whether on holiday wanting to explore the area or visiting the area for a specific purpose such as business or to buy antiques from the antiques centres at Hemswell Cliff. 2 reviews summarise what we hope our guests will think of us and our Bed and Breakfast. The first taken from our Visitors Book from a couple who stayed for a week to explore the area: "One of the best holiday stays we have had in 31 years of holidaying. Lovely welcome, a great room, cosy snug and fabulous evening meals." The other on TripAdvisor from a guest who stayed a couple of nights for a nearby wedding and to look around Lincoln: "The welcome, room, cleanliness, fabulous breakfast and quality of information provided are all well above expectation. Would not hesitate to recommend this B and B if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed." In brief, we like meeting people and want our guests to feel at home; which is why so many reviews comment on the warm welcome we offer. And as Tony is a Cordon Bleu trained chef we can offer some great evening meal options.
We are located in the quiet Lincolnshire village of Normanby by Spital. The village itself is surrounded by farmland and provides a quiet, relaxing place to base yourself. There is a pub, post office/village store and an old Norman church which are about a 2 minutes walk from our front door. The village is about a 5 minute drive from the A15, which gives easy access to a variety of local attractions including the historic city of Lincoln.
