Following the Government announcement on 23rd March we realise that our guests will be unable to travel to our cottages for at least the next 3 weeks. Also that many of you, with particular health conditions, will not be able to travel for longer periods.
The safety and health of our guests is our primary concern, along with our responsibilities towards our own employees and of course our own family.
We will be getting in touch with all guests who have bookings within the next few weeks with the options available to them. It is a very busy time for emails and communications so please do be patient. We are currently contacting any guests arriving within the next 3 to 4 weeks at the moment. If you have a relative in your party who has been told not to travel, due to their age or health concerns, please contact us.
We will be closely monitoring any new guidelines and will keep our guests up to date with any changes.
We kindly ask you to check if you have taken out travel insurance as we advise this on our website.
As a small family run business this is going to have a huge impact on us. We do also understand that this is a worrying situation for everyone and we value your support enormously.
Please keep yourselves safe and well and see you soon!

Bumble Cottage and The Conker Barn are holiday cottages with hot tubs and are set on an old farm yard among 26 acres of grassland and paddocks. Far enough out to allow you to relax, unwind and take in the beautiful views, yet close enough to all the amenities of the lively seaside resort and many other lovely place of interest to visit.
Both Cottages sleep four adults plus one infant in a travel cot. Each have their own private enclosed south facing patio area, with hot tub ,secure garden with 5ft fence, garden furniture and a BBQ. There is a shared laundry room with freezer, washing machine and coin operated tumble dryer.
We love to have dogs here to holiday and generally accept 3 dogs in Bumble cottage and 2 in The Conker Barn, although we can be flexible so please do ask if you have more. We offer a dog wash down area, towels for drying off and throws for the cottages. We have 5 fabulous dogs of our own along with a few other members of the Taylor household including, 3 horses, farm cats and a couple of lovely hens. (Complimentary free range eggs available when the girls are laying)
We have a nice traditional pub within walking distance, which is dog friendly and they serve home cooked food most days. The closest shops are just 2 miles away where you can find a Co-op mini supermarket that is open 7 day a week until 10pm. There is a 24 hour Tescos and a Morrisons situated in Skegness.
We love dogs and have 5 of our own! We allow up to two dogs in Conker Barn and up to three dogs in Bumble cottage depending on the size and the number of guests. If you have more dogs please let us know as we are always willing to be flexible on numbers when we can.
We have excellent facilities with a lovely dog walk around a 7 acre paddock, you are welcome to let them off for a run in here (Please just note this area isn't secured). Our nearest beach is just 4.5 miles away and there are lots of dog friendly parts of it to go to, including Winthorpe at one end and Gibraltar Point at the other.
The Taylor family have worked and lived at Church Farm for over 40 years. Until 2002 the farm operated a working dairy herd of around 100 head of cattle. However, with changes in farming, small farms such as ours found it impossible to remain viable. So in 2002 as a family we made the difficult decision to sell the herd. Over the coming years land was sold, while outside jobs were taken in order to keep the farm.
Eventually, after several years, planning permission was eventually granted for us to develop the stable block and implements store. Spring 2009 saw the completion of the project- and the opening of The Conker Barn -named after a beautiful pair of horse chestnut trees that stand to the left of the barn and Bumble Cottage- named after our lovely 20 year old miniature shetland pony, who spent the last 10 years of his lovely life munching grass in the paddock at the front of the cottages. After spending the first four years with a well known holiday letting company, we found we had so many repeat and word of mouth bookings, that we decided to go it alone.
Our aim is to make sure that you....our guests have a really lovely holiday here at Church farm and one you will always remember.
