“Perfect venue for a 40th Birthday Weekend!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Skendlby Hall is set in beautiful grounds and is the perfect place for family and friends get together. However, the bedrooms in the servent's quarters at the back of the house do not compare with the rooms within the main part of the house. The room we stayed in had an odour with the curtains and bed throws in need of a good clean, especially around the edges of the carpet. If the cleanliness was improved Skendlby Hall would get 10 out of 10.

“Well appointed stately property, set in lovely grounds in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Skendleby Hall is a truly lovely building, if anything the photographs don't do it justice. It is spacious and well laid out, allowing a large mixed group to mingle but also have their own space.

The main kitchen is particularly well appointed, with ample fridge and freezer space and quality crockery and glassware for all your needs.
Bedrooms are beautifully decorated individually and all well stocked with fluffy towels and hotel quality bedding.

During our stay for a friends 40th Birthday celebrations, we were fortunate enough to enjoy fabulous weather so were able to take advantage of the outside facilities. This did however highlight one of the disadvantages of staying at Skendleby Hall in that music and any loud noise is prohibited outside after 22:00hrs ~ a bit tricky for a large group enjoying the only bit of decent English weather we've had for years!

Skendleby village is picturesque with a traditional pub a mere 5 minutes stroll away, which serves meals.The coast is 30 minutes away and holds a certain charm if you are from around these parts ~ if you live on the South Coast and are used to the delights offered by your seaside resorts I would give it a miss!

“Amazing house for a large get together”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in February 2013

An excellent well furnished house for a great family get together. All the bedrooms are well furnished and spacious and it has the feel of a country house. The large sitting room easily accommodates a full house around a huge open fire. The 2 large kitchens and ample facilities make self catering easy. The house is always warm in the winter and in the 5 years that we have stayed there we have never encountered any problems. Ruth and all the staff are very friendly and helpful and to our family of 25 (age ranges 1 - 75) it now feels like a second home. The overall standard of the house and facilities is very high and I would certainly recommend it. We look forward to our 6th annual visit next February!
