From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Linda was an excellent hostess, showing us our room and facilities. Despite being early, midday, our beautifully appointed room was ready. Fantastic bed.
Dislikes:
Walls were a little thin but not bad enough to stop us sleeping. Will be going back.
Response from The Cross Swords Inn:
Linda and I were really pleased you enjoyed your stay, and particularly the breakfast. Thank you for the review and the recommendation

Best regards & Linda & Harold

"Quiet and comfortable"
We stayed for one night as a stopover on our way to Nottinghamshire. It was a good find - quiet, peaceful, lovely people and great good. It is a small pub in a small village. Beds comfortable - slept like a log! Accommodation is separate from the pub in little "cottages". Had dinner here as well as breakfast and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed our short time here.

Award winning Country Inn! Country Inn of the year (Camra 2014) AA Dinner Award 2014, 2015, 2016 & Certificate of Excellence 2014 & 2016 (Trip Advisor).

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 Accommodation & Courtyard. .

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, within 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.
