    About this property

    • Saltfleet Manor House has a rich and varied history: it is believed to be originally late 16th century, with later additions, and has formerly been a museum between the First and Second World Wars, inspiration for a Tennyson poem, home to the country's first 'flock' wallpaper and has additionally played host to Oliver Cromwell. In more recent years it has been transformed into a successful B&B, and its setting on the Lincolnshire coast in a popular village offers potential to continue with the business, if desired by separate negotiation. The property is Grade II listed and notable for its extensive character features, including its original oak staircase, exposed beamed ceilings, original fireplaces and, most charming of all, a lover's knot and an inscription of former owner's names. These characterful elements have been sympathetically incorporated into the modernised décor, which features a striking country-style kitchen with cabinetry and an AGA, plus contemporary bathrooms; the principal bedroom is a highlight, featuring a freestanding bathtub. Externally the property features beautifully landscaped gardens, an outdoor swimming pool, walled lawns and a kitchen garden.

      The immaculately presented accommodation is arranged over two floors and offers more than 3700 sq ft of space. The ground floor has a choice of reception rooms, including a formal dining room, a sitting room and a snug, plus a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room which is dominated by a large central island. Ancillary accommodation also includes a utility room, boot room, cloakroom with w.c. and a store room, with the former blacksmith's forge offering good potential for conversion. On the first floor, the magnificent staircase leads to the Cromwell Room, with en suite shower room, the State Room, with freestanding bath and a separate family bathroom. There is also the Jane Hardy room, which can be accessed by both the main and rear staircases, the latter having access to a bedroom, housekeeper's room/study and bathroom.

      The property is set within beautiful gardens and features ample off-street parking on a private gated gravel driveway. A paved courtyard is enclosed on three sides and is ideal for outdoor entertaining, while there is a separate terrace adjoining the enclosed outdoor swimming pool, behind which there is a walled kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds. The lawn is a good size and is adjacent to an area of box topiary, with a seating area to the rear. Outbuildings include an attached double garage and a workshop.

    This is such a welcoming home, with one of the nicest entrance halls I have seen and the most beautiful dining room but the west facing garden complete with swimming pool looks especially inviting at the moment
