The property

Lavender Cottage is a charming double-fronted, semi-detached stone cottage sitting behind its own enclosed front garden in the South Lincolnshire village of Billingborough. Walk through banks of lavender to the front door and enter into its old world charm. The large and well-equipped farmhouse kitchen and the quaint sitting room both have exposed beams, and the sitting room also boasts a window seat where you can watch the world go by. Completing the accommodation at this Lincolnshire cottage are two large, attractive bedrooms and a bathroom. Billingborough village Post Office is next door to the cottage and has a delicatessen counter selling delicious local produce. A short stroll away is a gastropub, small supermarket, fish and chip shop and village butcher meaning you'll never go hungry! Attractions in the area include Belton House, Grimsthorpe Castle, Tattershall Castle and Burghley House, home to the famous horse trials, plus this Billingborough cottage is situated halfway between the market towns of Bourne and Sleaford while larger towns such as Stamford, Newark and Lincoln, all famed for their historic architecture are a pleasant drive away through the Lincolnshire countryside. With both the Lincolnshire and North Norfolk coast within driving distance a day at the seaside is also an option. Whether sightseeing or simply relaxing in the ambience of Lavender Cottage and Billingborough village, a stay in this character property has a lot to offer.

    • “We wanted to explore Lincolnshire further, and Billingborough seemed a central location. The cottage was a delight, the owner met us and explained the heating system and personalised lighting system in the sitting room. Lovely pub over the road, post office next door, and a Chinese takeaway a short stroll .We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return”

    • “As soon as I walked in it was like putting on an old pair of loved slippers. There was excellent parking, excellent Co-op convenience store on your door step and interesting village/villages with excellent pubs/restaurants. Good main road connections to all areas.”

    Mr Martin, Bristol, June 2014

    • “A beautiful cottage with garden, in a village location, with a nice pub and handy fish and chip shop nearby! It was very comfortable inside the cottage, we found it very relaxing and would have loved to have been able to stay longer. We loved the garden and the lavender hedges and spent our evenings just sitting watching the world go by.”

    Ms Cullen, London, June 2014

    • “We have just spent a wonderful week at Lavender Cottage, what a perfect place for a break. A real country cottage with all one could need for a relaxing time. There were plenty of crockery and utensils, along with a dishwasher, washing machine and a separate dryer. To one side is a Co-op and the other side is a Post Office so if you don't want to, you have no need to go anywhere. If you want a relaxing time then this is the place to go! The owner has spent a great deal of thought, time and effort on this place and it shows. Well done, we will recommend it to our friends and family.”

    Mr Carpenter, Newcastle Upon Tyne, June 2014

    • “The location was superb with a good gastropub a very short walk away. The cottage was a delight, we all wanted to live there.”
