Located on the outskirts of Lincoln in Washingborough, this
good-looking manor house has a rich history. Dating back to 1730, it was home
to the Fairfax family before being handed down to a variety of families and
parish reverends; one owner of note was MP, Sir William Amcotts-Ingilby, who
was from one of the richest families in Lincolnshire. During World War II to
the manor welcomed war-weary airmen, before opening up as a nursing home once
the war ended. After a brief stint as a nightclub, it became the much-loved country
house hotel that it is today.
