  • "Everything was perfect, from the accommodation to the area it was in."

    Check in was easy and the owner was always a call away if we needed anything. The house is great for any occasion. I highly recommend to anyone staying here it was spot on.

    Thank you for providing your lovely feedback, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "Kylemore Railway Cottage was perfect."

    We were 6 adults and the cottage was spacious and very comfortable for all of us. The cottage was impeccably clean and everything was of a very high quality spec. The beds were so comfortable that I'm now going to change my mattress at home for the same used in the cottage. Set in a quiet, rural area, next to a working railway line. The passing trains were swift and unobtrusive. We spent Christmas 2023 there and the owner had decorated the living areas beautifully with fairy lights, a real Christmas tree and lots of other decorations. Having a log fire in the dining room made it all the more special. We will definitely recommend this property and will stay there again in the future. Yvette and George were very helpful and friendly. All in all, a wonderful family Christmas (with 3 generations) was had by all. Thank you.

    Thank you for providing your lovely feedback, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and had such a wonderful Christmas - we look forward to welcoming you back! Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely few days' break with friends at Kylemore."

    We'd picked a week when it rained a lot, but we hunkered down with the trains - the property had everything we needed. Between downpours we got out for a walk to Stamford and back to the delightful Bertie Arms in Uffington.

    Thank you for providing your lovely feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your holiday with us and enjoyed walking in the area. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Beautiful house everything you could possibly need. Dog friendly. Would recommend The Bertie Arms pub and shopping day in Stamford. The trains going by were great. Any train loving children would love staying here!! Fish and chip delivery was so good too. Will definitely return. I always sleep with a fan on all night and we had really hot weather so wish I had taken my fan.

    Thank you for providing your lovely feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your holiday with us. Thank you for the feedback regarding the fan and we will take this on board. We loved hearing you enjoyed the amazing opportunity the property offers to view passing trains from the balcony. Property Owner

The property

Perched on the outskirts of the quaint, rural village of Uffington, near Stamford, Lincolnshire, lies this sympathetically-converted, former railway station, Kylemore Cottage.

A trainspotter's haven, featuring an original-stone exterior, a contemporary interior, and set near numerous walkways and cycle paths, this charming property is perfect for families or friends sharing, looking to enjoy a relaxing, self-catered stay in the Lincolnshire countryside.

The station cottage dates back to 1840; Kylemore Cottage is Grade II listed building and family member Joseph William Holt converted the building from the original station house in the 1950’s and made it habitable.

After you’ve parked up on the driveway and unpacked your belongings, make yourself at home in your new lodgings by setting up shop in the well-appointed, elegantly-designed kitchen/diner to rustle up a delicious feast for the whole group.

Savour your culinary delights around the dining table in the dining room, where you and your loved ones can catch-up on the day’s events by the warmth of a crackling woodburning stove, before retreating to the thoughtfully-laid out sitting room, complete with plush sofas and a stylish, wall-mounted Smart TV with Sky.

Open the bi-fold doors and take a glass of your favourite beverage out into the serene rear garden, where you can take in the fresh, country air whilst watching as the trains zoom past your lovely new home-from-home.

When sleep calls, retire to one of four bedrooms, including a king-size with en-suite shower – an idyllic spot to refresh and rejuvenate after a long, fun-filled day.

This property is a gift for railway enthusiasts with steam engines passing by the front door on a few occasions throughout the year and it is opposite one of the very few manned signal boxes in the country.

If you can tear yourself away from your new dwelling, explore the local area by dining out at The Bertie Arms, serving traditional pub fare, or head a little further to The Millstone at Barnack, a gastropub, perfect for those evenings where you fancy taking a break from cooking.

In nearby Stamford, visitors will find plenty to do and see, such as roaming the grounds of Burghley House or St Leonard's Priory or paying a visit to the National Trust landmark of the Priest's House, Easton on the Hill.

The property also enjoys proximity to the iconic Burghley Horse Trials, held at Burghley House, which is a three-day event held annually and classed as one of the world's premier multi-day equestrian competitions.

Choose Kylemore Cottage for the most memorable stay in Lincolnshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
