"Friendliness and cleanliness"
We stayed on two seperate nights several days apart so as to break our journey to and from York.
The reception we were given was very friendly and we were soon settling into our room.
We had an evening meal, mine a rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection. My wife had rack of lamb cooked to the same quality.I would recommend the steak with absolutely no reservation.
Had a great fried breakfast. If we had realised the size of the helpings we would have been less greedy. Read less
Likes:
The friendliness of the owners, Harold and Linda.
Harold's wonderful cooking
Nothing too much trouble for them.
Pretty, quiet village.
Generous hospitality tray.
Lovely clean bathroom.
The food
Dislikes:
My wife was a bit put out as there was no armchair to sit and watch the waves breaking on the beach(there is no sea or beach). A nick picking pair of oldies, the small TV taxed our sight and hearing.
Response from The Cross Swords Inn:
Thank you Mr Girling for your wonderfull review, I am so glad you enjoyed your trip and stay with us. Sorry about the size of the TV but if was any bigger it would look quite out of place.

This impressive stone building was built in the early to mid 1800’s where the landlady would provide the ale and supper, while the landlord would shoe horses and serve as the blacksmith around the rear of the establishment which now is the courtyard and car park.

This country inn has had its fair share of landlords in the past - your current hosts Francis & Linda Wood, who have owned the Cross Swords Inn since 1991, are the latest in a long line of hospitable landlords, stretching back to Edward Herring in the 1800's.
With a fine selection of good food ranging from A’la carte to country inn food. To complement the food, a good selection of ales, spirits and wines, are available.

Our accommodation is settled in the Courtyard come car park, in the grounds of the Inn, and comprise of three, well-designed, comfortable, en-suite, twin-bed roomed cottages. This makes the Cross Swords Inn an ideal place meet ,eat and to stay.

The Cross Swords Inn is located in the historical village of Skillington, which dates back to the Domesday Book. The whole area is full of interesting features of Stately Homes, Burghley House, Grimsthorpe Castle, & Belvoir Castle to name but a few. If you are a golf enthusiast, or just like to walk, the setting is perfect, for a relaxed stay in a forgotten part of Lincolnshire, just off the Viking Way.

For the more energetic, just 5 minutess from The Cross Swords Inn, is Buckminster Gliding Club, where you can buy trial flights.
Please note we do not have the facilities to accept babies and children under 10 years of age and we do not accept pets.
