Homebuyers who want the space to entertain guests, but don’t necessarily want to purchase a large home in order to accommodate them, can now have the best of both worlds at Larkfleet’s development in Bourne, Lincolnshire, thanks to a stunning guest suite on site.

Residents at The Croft ( have exclusive access to the facility, which is located in a refurbished manor house, enabling them to have family and friends to stay without any of the work involved in preparing for visitors or the need to have a spare room.

The Croft is a lifestyle living development for the over 55’s comprising one and two-bedroom bungalows and two and three-bedroom chalet style bungalows set around attractively landscaped courtyards. The manor house, situated at the heart of the development, provides a stylish facility to relax in and is the ideal location for residents’ events and activities. Prices at The Croft start at £142,950 for a two-bedroom chalet bungalow.

The guest suite has been decorated to a very high standard and comprises a twin bedded bedroom with a television, tea and coffee making facilities and a large modern bathroom. Visitors can also accompany residents into the main part of the manor house. With its beautifully decorated living room with access onto a sun terrace, it is perfect for socialising and ideal for enjoying a glass of wine and the countryside views.

Karl Hick, managing director of Larkfleet Homes, said: “The guest suite has already been very popular with our buyers, as for them it is like having a four star hotel room on their doorstep. The suite has proved particularly useful for those residents who have bought a one bedroom property, as they use it just like they would a spare room but with the added bonus that they do not need to worry about getting it ready for visitors.

“The lifestyle on offer at The Croft is very much aimed at taking the hassle out of life for our residents and this guest facility is a great example of how we do this, as it enables our buyers to enjoy their guests without any of the hassles associated with entertaining.”
Larkfleet is also offering potential buyers the opportunity to spend a night in the suite so they can get a real feel for the development and also meet some of The Croft’s existing homeowners.

Karl added: “Buying a new home is a huge decision so by offering buyers the opportunity to come and stay in the guest suite for a night, it hopefully enables them to get a feel for the quality of our homes and the lifestyle on offer at The Croft in a much more relaxed and informal way.”
Set in the heart of historic Bourne, The Croft offers easy access to the local amenities including the town’s bustling centre which boasts shops, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets, all of which are only a short walk away.
Buyers at The Croft can choose from a full range of maintenance options, including grounds maintenance and external window cleaning, thereby enabling them to take on as much or as little work as they want when it comes to the upkeep of their property.
Larkfleet is also offering a range of incentive packages, which can be tailor made to suit the needs of individual buyers, including a shared equity scheme and £1,000 cash back for buyers who recommend the site to a family member or friend when that recommendation then results in a sale.
