Spanhoe Lodge is set in peaceful countryside & offers 8 guest rooms. We are committed to ensure an appropriate accommodation service for all prospective guests. All of our rooms are on the Ground level & one of these has been designed to cater for the needs of people with restricted mobility.
We are located on a quiet, little used road which connects two small villages. Our location is peaceful, tranquil & “off the beaten track”.
It is not ideally suited to those travelling without a car, although transport can be arranged & we have various taxi companies who regularly transport our guests.
The nearest shops are approximately 5 miles away.
Spanhoe Lodge itself is not on a bus route.
The nearest bus station and railway station is 8 miles away in Corby or 10 miles in Stamford.
A railway station at Corby has recently opened & links directly to St Pancras (approximately 1hour 10 minutes travelling time)
There are several local taxi companies, with accessible taxis - we can make bookings for you in advance if required.
We do accommodate guest’s pets by prior arrangement. (Additional charges apply)
Brochures & menus can be provided in large print if required. We regret we do not have facilities to prepare documents in braille.

Arrival & Car Parking Facilities
To ensure we are available to meet & greet you, please advise us of your anticipated arrival time. This is very important as we do not have 24 hour reception so there will not always be someone on site.
Check-in is available from 16:00 however if you need an earlier check-in time please ask, and we will try to accommodate your request.
There are 2 designated parking areas for guests with mobility problems – these are clearly marked. The majority of the parking area is on a gravelled surface but the 2 designated parking bays have concrete strips either side. These concrete strips lead to all bedrooms & the Main Dining Room & Reception.
Other parking areas are not marked but there is parking for approximately 35/40 cars in total.
Parking is on level, gravelled ground, but there is a concrete footpath around the bedroom areas & leading to The main dining room & reception.
We would advise you to leave your luggage in the car until after you have registered as we can then direct you to park closer to your room.
We are more than happy to assist guests with luggage.
