WIN A luxurious break...

Washingborough Hall a pretty, Georgian, Grade II listed, boutique hotel situated near Lincoln

Washingborough Hall is a pretty, Georgian, Grade II listed, boutique hotel situated close to the city of Lincoln. Family-owned and managed by Lucy and Edward Herring, you can be sure of a warm welcome and good old-fashioned hospitality.

A combination of Lucy’s classical Cordon Bleu training and the professional dedication of dynamic young chef, Dan Wallis, results in delicious modern British menus. The 2 AA rosette restaurant is a showcase for Lincolnshire’s finest farm produce. Both Lucy and Edward are from local farming families and feel passionate about using high quality, ethically–farmed, local produce.

The Hall, built of mellowed stone, is in an idyllic setting of three acres with mature gardens, complete with dovecote. There is even a private entrance to the neighboring parish church. Indeed the elegantly-proportioned property was originally built for the local rector, the younger son of a wealthy landowner.

There are twelve suites and bedrooms in total, two with four-poster beds, which make the hotel an ideal romantic retreat. The Hall’s guest bedrooms are individually designed with country house-style décor and classic/contemporary highlights. The Hall is decorated throughout in a palette of period paints to complement the building’s heritage, with original artwork depicting the local land and cityscapes, as well as Lincolnshire’s coastline.

Lincoln itself is a feast of heritage, arts, markets, individual boutiques and dining out. The magnificent Cathedral is the most obvious of the city’s treasures, dominating the skyline from afar it is a Gothic masterpiece that has a thousand years of stories to share.

The relaxed ambience of Washingborough Hall appeals to a variety of guests: foodies, romantics, city tourists, families, nature lovers, heritage buffs and cyclists, all of whom appreciate the qualities of the hotel and its wonderful location.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome. Derbyshire Life has teamed up with Washingborough Hall to offer one lucky reader a two–night luxury stay including accommodation in a superior room, with a three-course dinner on both evenings and full English breakfast each morning.
