This homestay is designed for those people who are interested in learning how to cook tasty traditional English food using healthy, organically grown herbs.

Traveler Z 14

The delicious home cooking that is produced in our traditional country kitchen dispels the myth that English food cannot be tasty. Home grown produce combined with flavoursome herbs has never yet failed to impress a homestay guest


Enjoy cooking with fresh ingredients to produce mouth watering dishes such as herby cottage pie. Lincolnshire offers the freshest produce, growing one-fifth of Britain's food.


We also grow a selection of vegetables and herbs in our kitchen garden. Growing organically we rely on nature to protect the crops and we conscientiously provide food for the local bird population and grow flowers that will bring in helpful insects, including beautiful butterflies.


Experience learning about afternoon tea before baking herb scones served with lashings of butter or traditional scones to be enjoyed with home-made jam and cream. Prepare traditional sandwiches and set the table before sitting down to appreciate the delicious results of your hard work.
