A Remarkable Story
"There was a time when you couldn't see the Petwood from Stixwould Road. Cars slowed into a tree-lined driveway and curved into a vast courtyard from which the astonished visitor would suddenly behold a grandly gabled vision of half timbering and leaded lights. Even today visitors may well feel like the second Mrs De Winter in Daphne Du Maurier's 'Rebecca' as she sees Manderley for the first time. Petwood is now regarded as one of Lincolnshire's finest houses in a county which has had too many fine properties demolished, and its story combines Royalty, romance and drama."
An so begins Edward Mayor's wonderfully revealing guide book on the history and people that have made the Petwood an essential place to visit for those coming to Lincolnshire. From the arts and crafts heritage of the building and Harold Peto's gardens through to the Dambusters of WWII, the book details the colourful history of the hotel and people alike.
