Halliday’s Folly, named as such by locals a hundred and fifty years ago, is a unique and historic building built in 1850 by Thomas Charity Halliday, a stonemason and corn merchant. Thomas Halliday restored and repaired churches all over the country and was in the habit of returning home with fragments of medieval stonemasonry which with which he decorated his workshop. Back in the day Mr. Halliday was a successful man employing some 47 men and 4 boys. His son, Samuel Fancourt Halliday was a one time mayor of Stamford.

The Folly has been recently restored and converted into two spacious holliday cottages which can interconnect. The first has two bedrooms, each with ensuite facilities, a large kitchen, living room with sofa bed creating additional sleeping space which has separate shower room. The second is a spacious studio apartment with fully fitted kitchen, bedroom area, living room with sofa bed, shower room. The outside space makes the best of this iconic building, also providing a private garden, patio areas and adequate off road parking.

The village boasts two award winning pubs, The Wheatsheaf and The Plough. Both offering excellent menus together with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
