We had an amazing time staying for two nights at Udder Barn. Checking in was so easy and Jim was there to greet us! They even left us some Prosecco to welcome us!! Sue made us very welcome and we could contact her for any questions we had!
It was immaculate inside and such a beautiful property with stunning views, even with all the wind!
Will definitely be returning!
So please you enjoyed your stay, was a bit windy to say the least! Batten down the hatches was well in order. Hope to see you both again in a more clement weather.
Lovely little gem
Stayed in the barn with a few friends for New Year. Sue the owner was lovely and showed around the barn and answered any questions we had. The place is beautiful, secluded and ideal for anyone wanting to get away.
Thank you for taking the time to give Udder Barn a review, it’s very much appreciated - so please you all enjoyed your stay, have a very happy new year
This has been an amazing place to stay on and off over the past few weeks whilst working away from home. The barn is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Having somewhere to stay that felt like a home has made my trips so much easier. Highly recommended and I hope to return in the future.
It's been pleasure having you stop at Udder Barn and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Thank you. x
Perfect place for a relaxing break.
We found the property to be very clean comfortable and well set out an well equipped. The surrounding area very peaceful. Even though the property is in the owners grounds it was very private. Sue met us at the property to show us around and on hand if we needed anything, after that we were left alone to enjoy our break. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and was welcomed with a balloon and a bottle of fizz in the fridge. This really is the perfect place to get away from it all and have a relaxing time. We would defiantly return. Thanks Sue and Jim xx
So pleased you enjoyed your getaway. Thank you for choosing Udder Barn - until next time xx
My husband and me have had such an amazing time at the Udder Barn. Very comfortable, clean, relaxing, quiet and obviously stunning country side. Sue and Jim have been excellent hosts and really lovely people. Highly recommend this place to everyone. We can't wait to come back next year! Krisztina & Paul Lanham
We can't wait to welcome you back! Thank you guys.
Lincolnshire is a breath-taking rural area located on England's east coast. From the Wolds down to the Fens it is rich in history and natural beauty, this would be the perfect destination for anyone looking to enjoy a quiet holiday in the counrtyside.
Our accommadation has been converted from a milking barn to a two bedroom self catering holiday let.
There's no argument that the Fens are flat but the open countryside and huge open skies are stunningly beautiful. Sunrise and sunsets can be altogether spectacular.
This very rural setting provides for ample countryside scenery with vast open spaces, abundant wildlife - badger, foxes, munt jack and fallow deer and birds, fabulous light if you like to paint. You could also indulge in a day or two of pampering at The Grange Spa - Day Spa of the Year 2015, only 10 minutes drive - or cycle - there are no hills!!
There is lots of history in our area: historical sites from the medieval back to the 11th century. Churches, castles and other building from that era lie in wait to be explored. Lincoln Cathedral, only 45 minute drive, commenced building in 1088 - reputedly once the tallest building in the world, set in a beautiful medieval area - Bail gate. Lincoln castle - constructed during the 11th century by William the Conqueror on the site of a pre-excisting Roman Fortress. Celebrating the 800th year of the iconic charter that changed the course of history, the castle houses the Magna Carta.
Picturesque market towns lie all around us. Stamford and the magnificent Burghley House which famously holds its horse trials each year. Tolethorpe the home of the Rutland Theatre of the Stamford Shakespere Company. Grantham with Belton House and the Downtown/Boundry Mill shopping outlet. Boston with its famous 'Boston Stump'. Spalding's Ayscroughfee Hall and gardens and the water taxi that can take you along the River Welland to Sprigfields Outlet Shopping and gardens. Bourne, the birth place of BRM founded by Raymond Mays. Sleaford with its market place and 12th century St. Deny's church and last but not least the surrounding influence of our magnificent RAF heritage, they don't call this 'Bomber County 'for nothing - Cranwell, Conningsby and East Kirkby only a short drive away. For that ultimate WW2 aviation experience book a taxi ride in the Lancaster Bomber 'Just Jane' at Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Museum, East Kirkby.
Sempringham Abbey is only a few miles away, the resting place of Princess Gwenllian, daughter of Llewellyn Prince of Wales, she was enclosed in the priory nearby throught her life and died here.
Hemswell Antique Centres, Hemswell Cliff - 90 minute drive - Europe's largest selection of dealers for antiques, furniture, jewellery and collectbles plus a delicious coffee shop, you will need a whole day to explore this abundance of treasure.
After all this excitment come back to Udder Barn to relax, unwind and recover ready for another day of exploring our lovely countryside.
Our barn has been recently renovated and completed to the highest standard. It contains two bedrooms plus plenty of natural light. A wet room, kitchen/dining area and a mezzanine sitting room. Holiday makers who take advatage of this rural retreat will enjoy complete privacy during there stay. However, the owners Jim and Sue are on hand if needed.
Transport is necessary. It is a five mile drive to Billingborough, the nearest store, post office, doctors surgery, butchers, pub/restaurant. The road from the village of Pointon to Udder Barn, 3 miles, is a single track tarmac road and must be driven with care not only for the safty of your car but for the wildlife - that forget there's a road here! We really do emphasize that we are very rural and that Pointon Fen is a no through road, so once your here there is only one way out.
We have working farms all arounds and we run a small family haulage company. There is a short time, 15 minutes, on week days when our vehicles start moving out of the yard and late afternoon they return. We do keep any noise to a minimum, unfortunatly or furtunatly depending how you see it, because it is so quite most of the time any noise seems loud. Even the barn owls screeching make us jump when they fly over and we have been here 24 years.
About Sue Sharples
We bought Poplar Farm in 1992 and have spent the last 27 years renovating the house. That is ongoing like old properties! In 2010 we saved the roof on the old dairy shed (circa 1740-1780) before it colapsed and decided to convert the barn into a holiday let, Udder Barn. It was a labour of love over a three year period - so my husband kept convincing me! We completed the project in late 2015 and are hoping that you will come and stay and enjoy what we have created. We are chuffed to bits on how it has turned out and really want to share this lovely barn with you. From our premises we operate a family run haulage business, celebrating 29 years in the business. Mainly supply and delivering aggregate. Our lorries are based at Poplar Farm. Monday to Friday the lorries leave early morning, 05:45 to 06:00 - so for 15 minutes there is vehicle movement, they then return late afternoon. There is a small amount of vehicle movement throughout the day, we do have working farms all around us so there is farm traffic up and down the road leading from Poplar Farm to the Pointon. We have an outdoor heated pool which is usually open from April/May through to October which our guest would be more than welcome to join us for a swim or just seat around the pool and relax.

Why Sue Sharples chose Sleaford
We choose to live in the fens for the quietness, isolation and peace. We love it. Winter can be wet and wild, sitting outside on a summers evening is so quiet you can close your eyes and be anywhere in the world - it is so relaxing. We hope you will join us and also appreciate this beautiful rural location.
