    • “As I have nostalgic connections with Walesby and Lincolnshire, I knew I would enjoy myself. This feeling was enhanced by the comfortable practicality of the cottage. Sadly I didn't meet the owner, but I did meet some lovely neighbours! For peace and tranquility, for views of the night sky with no light pollution, for a perfect opportunity to escape from the rat-race, this is the place to be!”

    • “Everything we needed in a lovely cottage in a quite village.Found it very dark to be able to walk to the pubs in Tealby. The Old Barn was the best warm welcome and lovely food.Wish they ran our local.Did not find The Kings Head very welcoming. Walking with the dog in Willowby woods we found the best place. Only two down falls. The steps in the cottage are very steep and i fell down them and the other down fall is we had to come home. Thanks for a lovely stay”

The cottage was lovely,small but big enough for the two of us and our greyhound,very clean, situated in a beautiful area with easy access to other places and we had an amazing welcome pack. The three of us will certainly go again, would recommend it to anyone for a peaceful but interesting break.”

    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - it is unusual to find a dog friendly cottage that is maintained to this high standard. Having a garden area and walks from the door was ideal, though it is alos well placed for car journies throughout Lincolnshire. One suggestion for improvement, would be to make the back of the garden more secure as there is no fence behind the neighbouring shed. A great little cottage!”

    • “Ramblers Cottage was small but very cosy this cold January week. Nobody bothered us at any time. The wolds, coast and Lincoln all fascinating. Pubs very welcoming. an ideal getaway which was just what we wanted. The cottage was possibly a little under-equipped, e.g. no cereal bowls, tea towels, kitchen cloth (J cloth).”
