    About this property

    • An elegant and well-appointed country house set within magnificent parkland on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Manby House was built in the 1930s as the RAF Station Commander's house for RAF Manby and formed a strategic meeting point, once hosting Sir Winston Churchill. The property is currently operated as a thriving bed and breakfast as well as a family home and offers scope to continue the business or use the property as a private residence once again. The property retains many of its original period features including fireplaces and sash windows. The house has recently been extensively improved by the vendor to modernise the interiors, creating an elegant home with high attention to detail. The accommodation extends to almost 5000 square feet over three floors, with eight generous bedrooms and ample reception space on the ground floor.

      The property is arranged over three floors, with the ground floor having generous space for both entertaining and family life. An internal porch leads to a hallway with access to a bay-fronted drawing room, study, cloakroom with WC, dining room and snug, a kitchen/breakfast room and separate cook's kitchen. There is also a family room, utility room and gym in the informal side of the house. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, with a bay window overlooking the grounds. There are seven further bedrooms all en suite, a bathroom and a shower room, including the two additional bedrooms on the second floor. One of the bedrooms also has access to a balcony while another has its own private upstairs sitting area.

      Outside the property is set in beautiful grounds including formal gardens and woodlands with a variety of well-established trees including an impressive willow said to have been grown from a cutting from the tree next to Napoleon's grave. The garden is mostly south facing and laid to lawn, having been recently landscaped by the vendor. Additional highlights include a climbing wisteria on the house and a large gravel driveway providing extensive off-street parking. The garages and outbuildings provide additional parking and storage and also offer potential for conversion to an annexe (subject to the necessary consents).
