Over in the pretty Lincolnshire Wolds, Raithby Manor, 15 miles from Skegness, is a very impressive pile indeed.
It would make the grandest of weekend retreats — but the house and its gated grounds would also be a superb location for a B&B business.
There is plenty to do here for all the family.
The garden has a tennis court, stables, an orchard with apple, pear and cherry trees, woodland areas with natural ponds, and there’s an annexe ready to let above a triple garage.
The house itself has four bedrooms that you could also turn into guest suites, plus charming reception rooms with log burners, a kitchen complete with an Aga, and a games room set up for snooker.
Just two miles away is the historic market town of Spilsby, ideal for exploring.
Priced at £1 million, the manor is on the market with Hunters (01754 484002).
